Do you want to make writing your novels easier?

  • Character biographies: Pages for minor and major characters, complete with prompts so you can keep track of their features and personality traits (no more wondering what colour your hero’s mother’s eyes are, searching your Word document for the word “blue”—simply look to the relevant page in the book, and off you go!).
  • Timeline assistance: Avoid one of the most common author mistakes and create a sound timeline with the calendars in this book, designed to ensure you know where your characters are at all times.
  • World building: A place for you to make notes on the place where your novel is set, including prompts on featured rooms, settings and more.
  • Research: Notes you must collaborate before starting your project.
  • Loose ends: Avoid losing the flow of your writing by making notes here on things you need to fix in your manuscript once the first draft is complete.
  • Goal setting: Project trackers and booking forms for your manuscript’s dream team, including a pre-edit checklist—essential for any writer.
And much, much more. The Novel Handbook is particularly useful for series writing, so you can keep all your reference notes in one place.

Whether you’re an experienced writer or a beginner, someone who loves plotting or a writer of the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants variety, this is the handbook for you.

Blurb

She barged her way into my life and demanded that I be her friend. That was the best day of my life. The day Quinn took one look at my sorry ass, and decided I needed her.

She was right. I can’t live a day without her smile. She’s my heart and soul. I’ve become her shadow, always threatening any guy that dares to even look at her.

I’ve fallen for my best friend.  I wish I’d told her sooner how much I love her.

I was only five minutes late. That’s all it took for him to take her.
He ripped the sun right out of my life.

In the darkest of nights, even your shadow leaves you. Those are the only words she’s spoken to me since that night. They haunt me, a constant echo in the emptiness left behind. 

Because of him, she now fears me. But I’ll be patient with her.
I’ll get my sunshine back once I’ve dealt with him.
He’s had a taste of her and just like me, he’s addicted.
He’ll come for her again and when he does, I’m going to make him suffer.

I’m a Jackson. I’ve learned from the best. He’s a dead man walking and I’m the Grim Reaper.

Release Blitz - Dear Captor by Liz Lovelock




Title: Dear Captor
Series: Letters in Blood #1
Author: Liz Lovelock
Genre: Suspense/Thriller
Release Date: September 20, 2017



Blurb

Dear Captor,

You’ve stolen me.
You’ve spilled my blood.
You’ve brought me pain.
But what you’re yet to realize... I’m a fighter.
I’ve been broken before.
I’ve even at one point lost the will to live.
So now you know… this information I gift to you.
I’m ready for you, so do your worst.

Sincerely,

Elenore

Excerpt

Prologue

What’s in a name?
Usually, parents name their children with a special kind of love in their hearts. Not mine though. They didn’t want me, or at least, that’s what they kept telling me. They only ever wanted to inflict pain. I was nobody until the woman next door gave me the lovely name Elenore. She cared for me when my own parents didn’t or wouldn’t.
Every single day I wished to be taken away from what I endured. Anywhere would have been good. I would have sold my soul to the devil himself back then, and I’d willingly do it now. Give my living essence to breathe, to live on. My entire childhood was a survival story, and now I have another.
So much blood. Everywhere I look, there are dark pools of solidified blood stuck to the walls, the floor—my entire cell is covered. The girls who came before me are no more. Their stories are over. It was gruesome, the stuff of your nightmares.
Not me, though—he kept me.
One letter changed my destiny of certain death. It was never in me to give up easily. I’ve always been a fighter. He never saw me coming, and he never knew my strength. He was not what I expected either.
His strength.
His calmness.
Or his kindness.
He was my captor . . .

Excerpt

Almost without thinking, Anna pushed away from the security of the car and took a half step toward him. There was no mistaking Luke’s sharp inhale, nor the way his fingers readjusted their grasp to cup her elbow and jerk her close, erasing that final gap between them.

The subtle spice of his masculine cologne hit her, and, oh man, but it was utterly delicious. She wanted to press her nose to his neck and inhale, maybe even run her tongue along the outer rim of his ear before begging him to claim her mouth with his.

Her hand found the hard plane of his chest, the fabric of his cotton T-shirt bunching under her fingers. “Now who’s evading?” she taunted with a half-grin.

She still couldn’t make out his expression, so it came as a surprise when she found her back abruptly pushed up against the car again.

His hands captured her wrists, tugging them up to the hood of her car, just above her head. And, oh my God, but he made no attempt to shield his hips from hers. He was packing, that was for sure. A pistol formed exclusively for a woman’s pleasure.

He settled his hips between hers, dropping his head to her ear to rasp, “What exactly are you asking for here, Anna?”

Anna’s tongue felt swollen, clumsy. Anticipation, maybe. Five years’ worth of pent up lust, most definitely. “I told you,” she whispered, her voice sounding rough even to her own ears, “I want to meet a nice guy who will learn to love Julian.”

Though the words were true, they hung hollow in the air and he certainly caught on.

“That’s not all you want,” he said gruffly, his mouth so close to the column of her neck that as he spoke his lips rasped against her sensitive flesh, drawing out goosebumps and a shiver down her spine.

Their entire relationship had been one set after another of challenges, games. Who was she to stop that now? She shifted her lower body to better cradle his hips, making them both moan at the intimate contact. “Tell me what I want then, since you know all.”

His mouth brushed the underside of her chin. “Me.”

Release Blitz - One More Thing by Lilliana Anderson





Title: One More Thing
A 47 Things Novel
Author: Lilliana Anderson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2017



Blurb

I never asked to slip on a piece of gum then fall in love with a man who would die before the ink was dry on our marriage certificate.
But that's what fate had in store for me. It broke me. I vowed I'd never fall in love again.
Five years later, fate had one more thing planned. It wanted to play around in my life again. Its tool? Another blasted stick of gum. Same place, only this time, it was Jude Baker, a university lecturer, who slipped on the gum.
Despite being a pacifist, Jude wasn't particularly happy about having gum stuck to his shoe and made his distaste abundantly clear.
But that stick of gum was the catalyst to a series of events where our paths would continue to cross. There would be a broken nose, a fractured hand, a cat on a lead and a crashed corporate Christmas party that would align our hearts and make me realise that I wanted to be happy again.
But there would also be tears. Many, many tears. Because falling in love was never easy, especially when you were still in love with another man.
