Release day – Scarlett Legacy!

Published May 29, 2015 by shellirosewarne

Hi all,

I’m so excited today because after a month of deliberating, re-editing, what seems like hours of reformatting issues, and a shiny new cover that was totally worth all the stress and chocolate required to make it – Scarlett Legacy is back on sale! I’m really happy to see my wolves back out there in the world – and if you didn’t catch them the first time, please do give them a try. Okay, I might be a little biased here but I love Damian and Natalia, and their modern-day fairy tale – so I hope you do too x

What if the fairy tales were not only real, but had it all wrong? Come meet a Big Bad Wolf like you’ve never seen before.

When Natalia rents a holiday cottage she is looking for peace and quiet, a place to reassess her life and recover from her failed relationship. Instead she finds a man who turns her world upside down.

However, people and things are not as they seem, and Natalia begins to find that legends are real and fairy tales have a basis in reality. As she grows closer to the enigmatic Damian she finds herself tested as danger and passion go in hand in hand, and everything she thought she knew about the world will be questioned.

After years of waiting Damian had given up hope that he would ever find his destined mate, and he certainly never expected her to be a sassy American who has no idea that his world even exists. Can he convince Natalia to believe in the impossible, and more importantly, can he protect her from those who seek to destroy his people.

Catch up – and a shiny new Cover!

Published May 25, 2015 by shellirosewarne

Hi all,

Well, it’s been all go lately! As some of you are aware my main publisher, Breathless Press, closed its doors at the start of the month. Sadly it’s a tough environment for small publishers at the moment, and they made the decision to call it a day before they ended up getting into any difficulties or messing around their authors. It’s been a sad time – they were the first people (well in a commercial environment anyway!) to believe in my writing, and to give me an opportunity to be able to do what I love. Not to mention the talented staff and fellow authors there have been wonderfully supportive and always willing to help.

This has also left me in the situation where the majority of my books had their rights reverted back to me and were pulled from sale. It’s been a bit of a dilemma with what to do with them now, and while one or two have been subbed elsewhere, and will hopefully find new homes, I’ve decided that a couple will now be self-published.

It’s been a learning curve figuring out different sites, different formats, re-editing, and making my own covers (it’s certainly given me a new appreciation for having a team behind you to deal with that!) but Scarlett Legacy is now ready for re-release this Friday – and has a shiny new cover to go with it! Would love to know what you think 🙂

Eek! Am getting excited now 🙂 Better get back to work!

Take care x

Cover Reveal – Restless in Peaceville by Pippa Jay

Published May 15, 2015 by shellirosewarne

Hi all,

I’m delighted to be hosting the fabulously talented Pippa Jay, who is sharing her gorgeous new cover for the re-release of Restless in Peaceville. Now you’ll probably know that I’m a fairly recent covert to the zombie/undead genre – but this looks like a goodie, so grab your copy now!

Restless In Peaceville, returning to retailers soon. Same cute zombie story, brand new cover!

Restless in Peaceville 3Blurb:
Welcome to Peaceville, population 2067 and rising…from the grave…

Luke Chester has had enough. He’s the school geek, the girls laugh at him, he’s lost his dead-end job at the pizza place, and in the midst of the world’s messiest divorce his parents don’t even know he exists. An overdose of his mom’s tranquilizers and a stomach full of whiskey should solve all his problems…

But they don’t. Instead, Luke finds himself booted out of the afterlife for not dying a natural death, with nowhere to go but back to his recently vacated corpse and reality. How the hell is he going to pass for one of the living without someone trying to blow his brains out for being one of the undead?

And it just gets worse. He’s got to fight his own desperate craving to consume the living, evade the weird supernatural hunter who’s having a field day with the new undeads rising, and there’s this creepy black shadow following him around. Add to that the distraction of female fellow undead Annabelle burning to avenge her own murder, and clearly there’s no rest for the wicked. Jeez, all he wanted to do was R.I.P.

Bio:

After spending twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay is now a stay-at-home mum who writes scifi and the supernatural. Somewhere along the way a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moment playing guitar very badly, punishing herself with freestyle street dance, and studying the Dark Side of the Force. Although happily settled in the historical town of Colchester in the UK with her husband of 21 years and three little monsters, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Pippa Jay is a dedicated member of the Science Fiction Romance Brigade and Broad Universe, blogging at Spacefreighters Lounge, Adventures in Scifi, and Romancing the Genres. Her works include YA and adult stories crossing a multitude of subgenres from scifi to the paranormal, often with romance, and she’s one of eight authors included in a science fiction romance anthology—Tales from the SFR Brigade. She’s also a double SFR Galaxy Award winner, been a finalist in the Heart of Denver RWA Aspen Gold Contest (3rd place), the EPIC eBook awards, and the GCC RWA Silken Sands Star Awards (2nd place).

You can stalk her at her website, or at her blog, but without doubt her favorite place to hang around and chat is on Twitter as @pippajaygreen.
