    Hi all, coming from Inspired Quill in July will be my first fantasy book and I've released the first teaser of it today here:


    I'll share the (awesome) cover art when I can, but here's the blurb:

    Amy was five when she vanished during a family trip, only to be found hours later, clutching a golden acorn and claiming to have visited fairies. Now she's eighteen, and the fairies are calling her back.

    While attending a wedding deep in the Antrim Glens, the voices grow darker and their song takes hold. Not sure if she's mad or if the fairies are real, she flees, drawing well meaning Simon into her fairy-fuelled roadtrip.

    To escape their hold, she must confront long-hidden secrets, and find a truth which may not he hers to unearth.

    But, even then, the fairies may not let her go.

    Looking forward to reading it, Jo!

    Best of luck with it!

    Sounds interesting - in a good way! Since I follow your blog, I expect some mention of it might hit my inbox when it's published. :)

    If you miss it, I will have failed book-promo 101 for sure :D (ty)

    I'm looking forward to this, Jo. July feels like a long time away.

    Yes, ages. But it's giving me time to set up some promo and to breathe. I've been so busy with writing the last few years I'd glad of the chance to relax and work at something new - and some exciting side projects with existing stuff :)
  9. Olli Tooley

    Olli Tooley Told lies with Locke

    Looking good.
    Yes, quality not quantity; especially when you have already got good content out there and aren't scraping around for a sale.

    Ah, I dunno. I scrape plenty. Most do. :) But I'm getting increasingly excited about this little one. It's out with endorsers at the moment, and I'll see what they think soon. It's still very nervewrecking, even on book 5!

    When I started reading the blurb, I had little interest. When I was done with the blurb, I was somewhere around holy crap I have to pick this up now
