Hindsight by Sarah Belle.
Humour, wit, and just a touch of humility: the swinging 60s as you’ve never seen them before!
The universe has sent Juliette a sign. She wishes it had been an email instead...
Juliette’s career is on fire, her marriage and family are in melt-down, and a red-hot goddess wants her husband. But those are the least of her worries when she wakes up on her lounge room floor in the year 1961.
Without any of her modern conveniences — nanny, housekeeper, surgically attached mobile phone, designer wardrobe, and intravenous lattes — Juliette is just over fifty years out of her comfort zone. But as she takes on the role of a 1961 housewife, with gritted liberated teeth, she discovers an unexpected truth: slower doesn’t mean boring, at home doesn’t mean dull, and priorities don’t mean sacrifices.
As she finds unexpected friendships, a resuscitated love life, tragedy and triumph, Juliette begins to wonder if she really wants to return home after all.

King Hall by Scarlett Dawn
A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall…
King Hall — where the Mysticals go to learn their craft, get their degrees, and transition into adulthood. And where four new Rulers will rise and meet their destinies.
Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing: survival. Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke, happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing — The Mystical Kings. Being named future Queen of the Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace — her burgeoning friendships with the other three Prodigies: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax into her new life.
Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realizes the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the revolution.

Memories of Love by Jenny Schwartz
In a style reminiscent of Robyn Carr, an intensely emotional story about taking chances and risking your heart.
When her family home burns down, it’s the final heartbreak for Rita Jorden who has already lost her parents. Her boss, former SAS captain and head of Tamerlane Security, Ivan Novak, steps in, offering her his home and his help. But Ivan has his own demons, and although he’s interested in Rita, there’s darkness in his past that could cause her harm. Thrown together into a situation that’s too close for comfort, this story can only end in one of two ways: in the destruction of Rita’s dreams of love — or the gift of healing and hope to two damaged survivors.

But can a fake engagement become life-changingly real?

Revenge in Rio

That's my teaser countdown finished. I hope everyone enjoyed them and more so, you enjoy the book itself, which is released TOMORROW!!! Eeeek! #Excited
'Til next time!
I've just signed up for this year's NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I have to admit to not going anywhere near the website since last year and it was really interesting to see how much has changed in a year.
Last year I was a newbie. I'd worked to plenty of deadlines in the past as a journalist and in education but never writing fiction. I could hardly imagine writing a WHOLE book in a month but I did! Matilda's Freedom my 2012 NaNo novel was accepted by Harlequin Escape and released on July 1st 2013.
While it was a fantastic buzz to actually complete the 50k words in a month and see the results published my greatest gain was learning so much about how I write and how to write more efficiently. When I write the dread internal editor perches on my shoulder poking me with red pencils and whispering nasty little comments in my ear but I discovered I could flay him alive with a deadline and send him scurrying into the corner.
Last NaNo I learnt to write without punctuation, without caring how many words I'd written. I just concentrated on the story. After six books I still haven't decided whether I'm a panster or a plotter but I discovered a dirty synopsis was useful. Yes, a synopsis! Needless to say I didn't stick to it but it was useful a security blanket.
At the moment I don't have a synopsis or any other plan for this year's story. I know it is going to be the second book in my family saga From the Ocean to the Outback but that's about all. I've got two weeks to sort myself out and I am determined to get another little sticker that says "30 days, 50,000k words and no excuses"!
Are you coming along for the ride? If you are I'd love to cheer you on so please buddy up and I'll see you in the starting blocks!
Matilda's Freedom is available from all good e-tailers but the prices vary enormously. Currently Amazon is the cheapest at $1.98

Again, a huge thanks to Laura for working her techno/design magic! I'd love to know what you all think of it!
See you next week for teaser No. 3.

My fellow Escapee Juliet Madison is celebrating the release of her third book with Escape Publishing, STARSTRUCK IN SEATTLE, a contemporary romance novella with a touch of romagic and she's here to spill the beans...don't you adore that cover?
Aspiring actress Anna Hilford might only have a small role in a leading television drama, but she longs to be dreamboat Karl Drake’s leading lady. Sick of being loveless and overlooked, Anna seeks the help of intuitive love coach, Lulu, from LuluTheLoveAngel.com to give her the courage and determination to follow her destiny. But fate has different ideas, Lulu has undisclosed power, and Anna is about to realise that life happens while you’re busy making plans...
I love the romagic in your books - I love that word! Where do you get your ideas from?
Who said watching movies was a lazy pastime? I got the idea for this story when Sleepless in Seattle was on TV. In fact, I get quite a few ideas when watching TV or movies, I find the visuals and dialogue triggers scene and story ideas in my mind, so I make sure to have a notepad handy. ;)
In the case of Sleepless in Seattle (one of my favourite movies by the way), I thought, instead of a call-in-radio show where people ask for advice, what if there was a website that specialised in helping people anonymously with their love dilemmas? So I thought up the idea for a Love Coach, but as I like to do in many of my stories, I decided to give it a slight magical twist, and gave the character of Lulu some other-worldly powers that help her to give destiny a shove in the right direction. But, as Lulu discovers, doing destiny’s work can be a pain in the wings, and may be more challenging than she thought.
I also like the idea of fate, and whether there is that one soulmate for each person, so I’ve explored this concept in the book too. What if you can’t find them? And what if who you think is your soulmate really isn’t? How do you know? That’s where Lulu steps in with her subtle magical abilities and irons out the kinks in destiny’s path, to make sure that the people who are right for each other, find each other. But as I mentioned before, this isn’t always an easy task.
I hope to write more novellas in this series, each with a similar title and set in different cities, and each bringing back the quirky and loveable character that is Lulu (oh, and her cute dog, Spark). ;)
