The day I released William into the wild

Image
I don't remember what link I first clicked to discover bookcrossing.com but when I did, I felt such a great sense of adventure.

BookCrossing is the act of releasing a book into the wild for a stranger to find and then tracking where in the world the book goes via journal entries on the site.

What greater way to start a treasure hunt than with a story about a Vampire Pirate?

I decided to leave my own copy of William in Brooke Park in Derry/Londonderry at Gwyn's Cafe & Pavilion on 11 July 2017.



At first, I was afraid to just leave the book there unloved and uncared for. What if it rains and its beautiful cover gets all ruined, and the water soaks into the paper and creates that ugly wavy paper effect?


My heart broke a little when, after drinking my Cappuccino, we stood up and walked away. I did my best not to look back, but it was hard.


Now, all I can hope for is that someone found William, and is either reading the story or put it somewhere for someone else to find.


I hope he is …

What readers are saying about: Guardian Angel

What readers are saying:
I was sent this book for review and found it to be an excellent read. Yes, it was a love story, but with a difference and it was very well written. I liked the characters who were realistic and believable, despite the fantasy element, being that the very real thoughts and feelings involved were very well done... I especially liked seeing into the 'feelings' of angels. It was a well thought out book, and maybe for a younger audience, however, I think that the fantasy would appeal to anyone who are intrigued by the concept of Heaven and what may happen to souls - and the idea of where they may go and how. Themes of love, redemption, punishment, loyalty and, most importantly, death, are steeped in this story. When is it our time to die? And is there someone to help at that time? And, what if love..? How can I say anything more without giving spoilers? Enjoyable. Julie Powell rated it at Goodreads

This book was so amazing because it is a love story with some…

♥♥♥♥♥
FORNEVER was supposed to be a stand-alone novel. I never intended for it to continue until readers started asking, 'Is the story going to carry on?' and then it started me thinking about Kieran's revenge and dark magic. Maybe there could be a plot of murder, love and intrigue and so (four years later) FORNEVER 2 was finally finished.

FORNEVER is in the genre of Magical Realism, with a lot of angst and first love. Throughout Heather has to deal with her parents getting divorced and the tug of war within her as she realises love never lasts.

What readers are saying about: The Shape of My Soul

Image
What readers are saying:

The Shape of My Soul by Lynette Ferreira is a wonderfully sweet paranormal romance that does not allow the paranormal to overshadow the romantic intrigue in any way. Ferreira remembers the number one rule for romance novels, and that is the romance comes first! (Not everyone remembers that.) In her story, Amber is a young woman, just seventeen, who has been sequestered in a castle in Scotland all her life, with only the staff at her home to act as family. Estranged from her parents under strange circumstances that have been kept from her, she does the best she can to enjoy her life. That couldn’t happen though if not for Bradley, the son of one of the staff, who, as a child, visited regularly and then only on holidays as they grew up together. The best romantic partner, of course, is one you can call best friend. But things don’t go quite that smoothly—especially when everyone is not on the same page. Suddenly, and without anyone preparing her, Amber is sent aw…

Guardian Angel was inspired by a cover my cover designer made for FORNEVER. It did not match Fornever at all, but it did inspire me to write GUARDIAN ANGEL





Even though I absolutely love this cover, readers were getting confused by it - thinking it was a little more 'romantic' than it actually is - seeing as it is a clean, wholesome romance.


♥♥♥♥♥
Every accident Taylor had in the first five years of her life was actually inspired by true events which happened to my daughter and often times I wondered whether she had a Guardian Angel who protected her through every stitch and every broken bone. The story was going to end when Taylor recognises Daimhin, but the 'powers who are' did not want me to end the story with (SPOILER ALERT) someone dying and so I had to add the additional chapters at the end when Guardian Angel becomes more reincarnation fiction rather than paranormal fiction

Brand New: THE GIRL IN ROOM THIRTEEN

Image
There is a never read before story on its way!

You might remember I told you in a previous blog post that I had started writing this story back in the year 2010. It started off with a different title (New Dawn) and a different kind of plot - it was initially about vampires and such, and the first 20,000 words were written, but I ran out of ideas.

Then, I happened upon an awesome title for a story, proceeded to dig through my files and decided to update the old, unpublished story, and so THE SHAPE OF MY SOUL was published on 1 October 2016. A story about a girl who can shift her body to fit the shape of her soul.

In the original story there was a girl in room thirteen who killed herself on the 13th of February because her heart was broken, but it did not fit in with the shape-shifter idea, and so I decided to split the original story in two, and created THE GIRL IN ROOM THIRTEEN
