I’ve been asked a few times the following questions regarding the INDEBTED SERIES:


1. How big will each book be?

2. How many will there be?

3. How often will they be released?

4. Are they stand alone or cliffhanger?


I’m  here to answer those along with the other questions I’ve been asked lately:

1. When is Last Shadow being released?

2. When is Sins of Silver being released?

3. Do you have a list of your future releases?

4. When will Je suis a toi be released?


I’ll start with DEBT INHERITANCE (Book one of Indebted)

indebted banner


This is a Dark Romance Series. Yes, I realize some readers love series as they’re shorter, published quicker than most, and more often than not cheaper than a full book. I also realize that some people don’t like them as they’re shorter and not a complete book. The reason why I’m doing Indebted this way isn’t because of money or because it’s a common trend at the moment, but because I have too many commitments to the new publisher I just signed with, other promised work, and signing appearances to write this as a Trilogy (because that would be the size of it if I waited to release in larger books.)


1. How big will each book be?

Tears of Tess was 107,000 words, Quintessentially Q was 117,000 words, and Twisted Together was 173,000 words. That’s a total of: 397,000 words. The Indebted Series will be this size, if not longer, but published slightly differently. This is so I can bring a new book to you more often while I also work on my other commitments.

Each book will be 50,000 words or more so a BOOK size, not novella. Each one will follow Jethro and Nila as their story is involved, full of twists, and not able to told quickly. I aim to give you darkness and temptation and a vintage feel to a modern story.

2. How many will there be?

I’m not sure how many books there will be at this stage. If I stick with the guideline of Tess and Q’s length of story, I’m guessing six to seven.


Price wise the first book will be priced at 0.99. It will FOREVER be priced at 0.99.


3. How often will they be released?

I’m hoping every 8-10 weeks (this is conservative and I’ll do my best to shorten this depending on my other commitments.)

4. Are they stand alone or cliffhanger?

Yes, they will probably end on a cliffhanger as you’ll have to wait to hear more from the characters, however each book follows a single debt that will be concluded in that one volume.


If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them.


In other Indebted news there will be a release day party on the 18th August 2014 and you can join in HERE


There is a signed paperback giveaway going on at Goodreads. You can enter HERE


There will also be an Indebted Book Club set up on Facebook and Goodreads to buddy read and discuss while reading. I’ll be posting those links very soon.

Right, moving onto the next questions:


1. When is Last Shadow being released?

This is hard to answer as it was in talks with a publisher  but has since been paused for now. I can’t commit to a release date as I’m over committed at this stage and don’t want to disappoint you. I can say it won’t be 2014, though. And I apologise for the delay but hope you’ll forgive me with delivering other titles.

2. When is Sins of Silver being released?

This one I have some very exciting news. Upon reflection, Chantal Fernando and I agreed we are too different in our writing styles to do a collaboration. She has recently written her own MC series called Dragon’s Lair and available now on Amazon. As the concept for Sins of Silver was mine (and she wasn’t too keen on doing a dark, dark book, she has kindly let me write this book on my own.) I love her to death and know that she’ll be very successful in her new MC series. Because Sins of Silver was a title for the joint project, it’s unfair of either of us to use it as a single author. So, I’ve renamed the book and will be able to release that VERY soon. I’m very excited to advise that this book has been signed by Grand Central (along with a sequel set in the same world) and will be releasing Feb 2015. The moment I’m allowed to release the cover, the title, and pre-order links, I’ll be splashing them everywhere.

So to simplify my long answer, yes the book is coming under a different name and more information is coming very soon.

3. Do you have a list of your future releases?

Not officially but I’ll do one now:

Debt Inheritance (Indebted #1): 18th August 2014

Ruin & Rule (prequel to the MC book I’m releasing with Grand Central) Early November in a box set with some amazing biker authors

First Debt (Indebted #2): October 2014

Untitled MC book coming from Grand Central: Feb 2015 (in ebook and in bookstores around USA, Canada, and England)


I can’t go much further than that as things change and I don’t have all the details from the publisher yet with regards to firm dates. Destroyed will also be re-released very soon along with hitting bookshops nationwide. (look out for a sale when GC takes control on the title)


4. When will Je suis a toi be released?

Q and Tess’s story will come, but I have a lot of books to write between now and November (I have to deliver the draft of the MC book to Grand Central on the 2nd of November) so I’ll be flat out completing that commitment, however I’ll do my best to deliver before Christmas along with releasing the Monsters in the Dark boxset with the extra bonus of the novella in time for the holidays.

Hope that helps and everyone had a great weekend!





  1. I totally love how you have presented this posting. I love that you are all about the .99c for a shorter sized full novel. I love that you explained everything the way you did. I can’t wait for this serial because I know how dedicated you are to quality in your story telling. It’s not a money thing, it’s time and quality writing. Booyahh!! p.s. I am nearly finished mine. WeeEee!! * pukes in bag * I hope my words came out correctly then. I don’t judge who writes shorter reads, I am just saying I love how you took the time to write this posting and your thoughts . xxx


    Paulie and I will see you in Sydney . With the Dom. Hehehee pun intended 😀

  2. This is brilliant news now I know when all these amazing reads will be available. Your writing just blows me away, you have an amazing talent for writing dark reads. Destroyed was a beautiful story that captivated me to read the book in one sitting it was just brilliant! Monsters in the Dark was just The Best each book just amazed me in every way that I was feeling the pain and the love for Q and Tess I can’t forget these books, once read they just stay in my memory bank, the way you write makes me see the characters so vivid it’s a surreal moment in most parts of your story telling.
    so excited to read Indebted I just know that I won’t be getting much sleep until that book is read. You are The Best Pepper<3
