The sequel to Hunted is upon us…
Six weeks after Edith and her vampire family were exiled from their clan, Darren waits at the rendezvous, poised for a reunion that might never come. With every passing day, his hope of ever seeing the vampire who showed him what it means to be human again dwindles.
On the run from Hunters and her own clan alike, Edith strives to protect those in her care, all the while fighting to get back to Darren and the family she’d long dreamed of. But even when their paths do cross again, reunion comes at a cost.
When Mr. Heartsong brazenly declares war on all humanity, allegiances will be tested. Will Edith side with the man she’s come to believe may be her destiny or the creator who gave her a second chance at life?

What’s Mine And Yours
By Naima Coster
This afternoon I am excited and delighted to be part of the cover reveal for What’s Mine and Yours by Naima Coster. Take a look at the lovely cover and as you browse down, you’ll see the blurb to discover more what this book is about. Thanks to Ellen Turner at Trapeze Books publishers for allowing me to be part of this.
Published 27th of May, so this is the perfect opportunity to whet your appetite and get to know a bit about the book.
WHAT’S MINE AND YOURS is a breath-taking new novel about identity, family, love and the ways in which race can affect even the closest of relationships.
When a county initiative in the Piedmont of North Carolina forces the students at a mostly black public school on the east side to move across town to a nearly all-white high school on the west, the community rises in outrage. For two students, quiet and aloof Gee and headstrong Noelle, these divisions will extend far beyond their schooling. As their paths collide and overlap over the course of thirty years, their two seemingly disconnected families begin to form deeply knotted, messy ties that shape the trajectory of their lives.
On one side of the school integration debate is Jade, Gee’s steely, single, black mother, grieving for her murdered partner, and determined for her son to have the best chance at a better life. On the other, is Noelle’s enterprising mother, Lacey May, who refuses to see her half-Latina daughters as anything but white. The choices these mothers make will resound for years to come. And twenty years later, when Lacey’s daughters return home to visit her in hospital, they’re forced to confront the ways their parents’ decisions continue to affect the life they live and the people they love

Poetry by Sarah Wallis
Today I am pleased to be closing the blog tour for Medusa Retold with a Cover Reveal, where you can discover the cover and what this new poetry book is about in the blurb. You can also find out a bit more about the poet. It’s got a feminist and modern vibe about it from poet Sarah Wallis, who is based in Scotland.
Thanks to Amber Rollinson from publisher – Fly on the Wall Press for inviting me.
A feminist retelling of the Medusa myth, set in a run-down, modern seaside town, Medusa Retold is filled with the magic and fury of the original tale. In this telling, loner Nuala is difficult and introverted, fascinated by creatures of the sea. Athena becomes her best friend and first crush, and together they form a duo which is ripped apart by circumstance, leaving Nuala unprotected, unable to save herself. A long-form poem of poignant motifs which recur throughout, the poem is a mythic puzzle, an epic for ordinary girls, and a love letter to the sea.
What people are saying:
“Sarah Wallis is a very fine poet and storyteller. She deftly re-inhabits the Medusa myth, losing none of the magic and mystery and yet giving it a contemporary and affecting resonance. She salutes the ancient gods, particularly Athena but also deals with 21st century questions of identity and gender. A miniature epic full of wonderful writing.”
James Nash, poet, recent collections, “Some Things Matter: 63 Sonnets “(2012); “A Bench for Billie Holiday” (2018), both from Valley Press.
“A wild and writhing reimagination of the Medusa myth for the modern age. Mesmerising. Compelling.”
