Yikes! I’ve just realized my last blog post was back in June!! Bad, bad blogger! For me, the last few months seem to have been full of changes and new stuff – new stories, series, new ways of publishing – and even new ways of reading!
For instance, when and how did you discover your last favourite author? My fellow romance writer Nhys Glover, recently came up with a novel and fun way to help readers find new books to devour, while helping authors reach new readers – all while reading the romance stories we all love AND playing a game with the chance to win prizes! This is one of the things I’ve been involved with over the last few weeks, and I wanted to tell you about it.
The idea is Flashpoint Finds (which you can check out here prior to its official launch on 2nd October: goo.gl/KbMhq3). So, a 99 cents anthology of twelve short stories, all taken from the “flashpoints” of romance novels – ie where the story really ignites! – yet all satisfying complete reads in themselves, comes out on 2nd October. One of these stories is my own Virtual Love, taken from a flashpoint in Serafina and the Virtual Man :).
But the anthology, called Finder of Lost Love, give you more than a taster of twelve bestselling authors and their works; it’s also a fun game, with an over-arching mystery story where you’re the detective and find the clues that could win you some great prizes!
Finder of Lost Love is available now for pre-order on Amazon and elsewhere – grab it now to be first in the game on launch day! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015AA39Z2. And sign up to Flashpoint Finds so that you can play the game!
Here’s a little about the book…

Riley Anderson comes to you because she has no other choice. Her fiancé, an investigative journalist, has been kidnapped by the mob, and the police will do nothing to find him for twenty-four hours. By then, she’s sure Leo will be dead.

You are the only one who has any chance of succeeding.
