If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Tuesday Teaser

I felt the need to participate this Tuesday in the teaser. 

So I'm taking it from a debut novel The Mist on Bronte Moor by Aviva Orr.



"Lightning struck the ground behind us. My whole body jumped. Charlotte and Anne fell to their knees. Heat and electricity pierced the air. We had nowhere to go." pg 96

Are you reading a book you can share a teaser from- feel free to post it in the comments.

Ellie Garret "Pasing Time" Cover reveal.

I'm posting on Monday because I wanted to help Ellie with her cover reveal. It looks fabulous!

Passing Time 

Nine Short Tales of the Strange and Macabre

Book Blurb

Nine dark fiction stories that may just give you nightmares.

A man lives to regret Passing Time. A father will do anything to save his son in Expiration Date. An author finds out her worst nightmare is back in The Devil’s Song. A woman gets more than the claim fee when she takes out vampire insurance in Luna Black.

In Dining in Hell, the Death Valley Diner becomes the wrong place to stop.

A serial killer wants to add another file to his collection in The Vegas Screamer. In Eating Mr. Bone, an undertaker could meet an unfortunate end. A con man meets his first ghost in Land of the Free. And will truth finally be set free in The Letter?

Publication date: 11th February 2013

Keeping it simple

On Monday I'll be posting a cover reveal so I'll keep this post short and sweet.

I have been revising my heart out for my novel Bloodstone. Chapter one is really coming together which is helping me in the middle sections of the book. I'm hoping to have it all revised for the umpteenth time by the end of January.

The ABNA is coming up- anyone participating? I thought about it and then decided against it, mostly because I don't feel my novel is ready.

Every Friday I post places to submit your work on my Author Facebook page from 8am-11am. Have a look here:
