I have SO many things to share, I thought it might be best to do it all in one go rather than lots of annoying posts 🙂
I’m trying to decide how best to do this, either blurt it out all in one or do it in logical fashion. I think….I’ll do it book by book with a summary at the end if you want to skim 🙂
THE BIG NEWS
Over the past 3.5 years, I’ve been luckily enough to sell a few of my titles to other languages around the world. Of the top of my head that included:
Italian – Indebted Series
Turkish – Monsters in the Dark Trilogy
German – Pure Corruption Duet
I have a feeling I’m missing one but for now, I’ll leave it at that. I’m so grateful publishers took a risk on me and hope the translations have helped other readers find my work and characters.
Those three foreign rights came in over a few years. However, something crazy has been happening over the past few DAYS!
First, I signed a four book German deal for Dollar Series and Monsters in the Dark Trilogy.
Second, a French auction happened and I just agreed to NINE of my books (Pure Corruption, Monsters, Truth & Lies, Dollars) to be translated into the Language of Love.
Third, a German auction just concluded for the Truth and Lies Duet that will be released 3 months apart in 2018.
That means most of my work will be available in German and French by the end of 2018. I’m BLOWN AWAY.
What an INCREDIBLE few days. I keep pinching myself to see if it’s real. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
THE BIG THANK YOU
Not only did Crown of Lies stay on the USA Today Bestseller list for a month but Throne of Truth just released and hit on its own accord, along with slamming onto the Wall Street Journal which I’m incredibly excited over! Thank you so much to everyone who read this duet and were so amazingly supportive.
AUDIO NEWS – THRONE OF TRUTH
Throne of Truth is completed in audio and is undergoing editing. It will be ready to listen to on all normal platforms in a couple of weeks! Crown of Lies is out on audio right now, recorded by the amazing Kylie Stewart and Eric Rolon!
I’ve also sold the rights for CAN’T TOUCH THIS audio to Tantor who are currently recording this standalone Romantic Comedy and it will be available asap!
DOLLAR SERIES UPDATES
I’ve been very cagey on what I’m up to with this series over the last two months as a lot of things have been going on in the background. Not only have I sold German and French rights but I’m also in the process of arranging audio, new branding, fresh blurbs, and a massive relaunch.
Here are the details so far:
- Pennies Audio is almost finished and should be done by the end of the week. Once editing is complete, it will be loaded and ready to listen!
- Dollars Audio is only a few weeks away.
- Hundreds is being written and a release date will be released asap. But it’s only a matter of weeks away, with each book (Thousands and Millions following quickly after!)
- New blurbs will appear very soon to hopefully showcase this series a little better.
- Each book will have a brand new cover–which have been created and STUNNING. I’m DYING to reveal them!
The reason for this rebrand, makeover, is to give this series a better start than the one I did rather half-heartedly in 2016. 2016 wasn’t a good year with pets dying and personal injury and I didn’t give the series the justice it deserved. But 2017 is my year and I fully intend to deliver! Watch this space! 🙂

Cover reveal is set for the 17th March!
PERSONAL HORSE RELATED STUFF
I went to the races last night (never been to a harness race before–only gallopers) and it was eye opening to see the cart pulling racehorses. Sonny–my awesome expacer 15.3hh standardbred is doing so well in his training with dressage and showjumping and it was great to see his origins and make sense of some of his quirks left over from that discipline.
He’s coming along so well and seems to love jumping. However, the other day he forgot he had legs and bumbled into a jump instead of going over it. He faceplanted to the right while I faceplanted to the left. Luckily, we were both unhurt and back up and working within seconds, but it has shown me he needs more work on his elasticity and gymnastic muscle growth before asking him to go higher.
My amazing husband (who has had a crash course in horses the past six months) has stepped into the equestrian world with me whole-heartedly (I returned to riding recently after a very long break) and comes with me to the pony club arena and drops me off at treks to keep me safe. He’s also very valiantly said he’ll build me an arena where the ponies live so I can still ride in winter with short sun hours and not have to travel on icy roads. We’ve been together 11 years and he still finds ways to make me fall in love with him. As he’s doing the work himself, it’s not a cost thing but a time thing, so I guess I’ll be paying him in beer and wifely duties as thanks 🙂
- Recently sold German and French rights to most of my books.
- Throne of Truth hit USA and Wallstreet Journal Bestsellers.
- Dollar Series is in the process of audio and rebranding.
- Hundreds is coming soon.
- Pony pictures because I’m obsessed.
I know I’m forgetting things, but that’s all I can think of for now. I’ll be back soon with the new covers for the DOLLAR SERIES and any other news I’ve forgotten!!
Thank you so much for your amazing support and I hope you all have an AMAZING weekend!
