Sorry I’ve been missing for a
little while. I’ve been finishing off the edits/proofs etc. for McKellan’s Run
which is due for release on the 22nd of April. It will be available
in both ebook and print. McKellan’s Run is up on pre-order at the moment on all
sorts of sites, such as Book Depository, Booktopia and of course Amazon.
Violet Beckett once
made the mistake of falling for the wrong McKellan brother. Now, eight years
later, fate has brought Violet back to her home town with her daughter, Holly.
As soon as Violet
runs into Charlie ‘Mac’ McKellan, she wonders if she should run all the way
back to the city. But something about him makes her want to linger. Can she
trust him, can she trust herself or will she be burned again?
Charlie McKellan has had a soft spot for Violet Beckett for longer
than he can remember. It almost killed him to watch his brother woo her, use
her and finally lose her. From his very first encounter with Violet he’s
hooked. But how can he convince her that not all McKellans are the same?
In the tradition
of novels by Rachael Johns’, McKellan’s
Run tells the story of two very special people who deserve another chance.
In other news, I’ve booked to
go to the RWA’s ‘Get Fresh Conference’ in Melbourne in August. I have to admit
I’m very excited as this will be my first one. The line-up of speakers and
workshops look interesting.
On the writing front I’ve just
made it to the halfway point of In Like
Flynn (working title, although I have to admit I like it). It’s the second
book in the Violet Falls series and deals with local sheep farmer, Flynn
Hartley and Lily Beckett (Violet’s little sister). I’m really enjoying writing
this story and I have to admit I think I’ve got a little bit of a crush on
Flynn. I’m sure that’s wrong but you see, he’s funny and sexy and he’s got the
type of smile that makes a girl’s heart skip a beat.
Both Flynn and Lily appear in
McKellan’s Run but it didn’t take me long to realise that they both deserved
not only their own story but a shot at a happy ending.
I’ve cobbled together a rough blurb
so you can get the idea. J
It’s the heat of summer
and the middle of the bushfire season when Lily Beckett's life implodes and
lies in tatters at her feet. All she can do is run back to her sister, Violet
and try and regroup.
her lesson and vowed to stay away from men - at least for a little while.
So the last thing she needs is Flynn Hartley, Violet Falls' notorious womanizer
hanging around. Lily refuses to be just another one of his conquests, but the
more she pushes him away, the more determined he appears to become.
Flynn has spent the last
few years restoring and building up his sheep run, The Grange into a successful
farm. He's never been in love or a long time relationship. In fact the whole
idea terrifies him. But somehow, Lily Beckett with her dark hair and sexy
freckles has got under his skin. And for the first time in his life, Flynn is
at a loss - how the hell did that happen?
So there it is, well sort of. At the moment both Flynn and Lily are
getting into all types of tangles, so I’d better sign off and go and see if I
can help them out.
