Today I’ve got a bit of a mixture of links to a range of things, a couple of interviews, a review, a blog post, and a giveaway and so without further rambling, here’s the list 😀


I recently started working with an ace group of writers who’ve banded together under the name Quill. We’re a cross-genre bunch trying to share interesting content and win fans – for my part you can check out a short interview and my post: Intro to World Building – Making it Stick.

Friday Fortnight Interview

A while back Kerry J Donovan conducted an interview on his blog – check it out if you’re looking for a chuckle 🙂 (And while you’re there, if you like Crime-Thrillers have a look at his DCI Jones Casebook series, they’re ace.)


With the release of Crossings not too far off (I’m gunning for October) I’m offering 3 ways to win a copy during the lead up 🙂

1. Visit Goodreads and add the book to your ‘to-read’ shelf and you’ll be automatically notified when the Goodreads Giveaway goes live. (This one opens in Nov.)

2. Visit the ‘newsletter’ sign-up page in the top right of the site and that’s it – you’re in the running to win an e-copy of Crossings and you’ll also receive the eBook for A Whisper of Leaves upon sign-up. (The newsletter comp will be announced in Oct.)

3. Visit the Crossings page and check out chapter one (or click here, it’s probably quicker) and answer a simple question:

What does Lisa find on her doorstep?

Once you find the answer, just let me know by leaving a comment on this post OR by sending me an e-mail to mountain0ash[at]gmail[dot]com. The first two people to answer will win a print copy of Crossings 🙂

The Lost Mask

Some early reviews are in and it’s a weight off my mind to see readers who enjoyed City of Masks are finding that The Lost Mask lives up to their expectations! 

Here’s a link to them on GR. Thanks to everyone who has read it already and let me know what they thought, it makes a big difference 🙂
