The emerging New Adult market

There's a great article by my favourite author Barbara O'Neal over at WRITER UNBOXED today, on the emerging new adult market.

I'm so excited that Barbara is writing NA (she's the only author I pre-order books for 6 months in advance!) and I have her NA, RANDOM, lined up to read next on my kindle. (She's writing NA under a pen name, Lark O'Neal.)

Alternative medicine

Today, I had acupuncture for the first time in 20 years.
Back then, it was amazing.

But I'd forgotten the whole 'feeling like a pincushion while I lie still for 40 minutes' thing.

While I'm traditionally scientifically trained (with my physio background) I'm always open to trying new methods as long as it doesn't harm.

What about you?
What alternative medicine/methods have you tried and if so, how did you find the results?

Guest author: Ros Baxter + free short story

A few months back I had the lovely Ros Baxter visit my blog with her new release and now she's back, with a free short story for you!

WHITE CHRISTMAS (Escape Publishing, Harlequin Australia) releases Dec 1st but you can pre-order now, FREE!

Here's what Ros has to say:

It's a whole lotta sexy, spine-tinglingly scary, and is set in a post-Apocalypse sci-fi world.

What if your only chance at survival was to seduce the man who broke your heart?

Seventeen years after the Apocalypse, Admiral-class Explorer Tabysha is caught up in a firefight and shot down over Tyver, where ice vampires hunt human warmth. Seeking shelter in an ice cave, she is instructed to stay put and await rescue. But after another ship crash-lands, and the Hunter Gatherers stalk its wounded pilot, Tabi breaks protocol.

When it turns out the survivor is the man who stole her heart then skipped out on her ten years before, it seems to Tabi that no good deed goes unpunished, and things can’t get any worse. But she’s so wrong.

As the Hunters pick up the escalating heat signature of the former lovers, Tabi has to tell Asha that there is only one way to repel the creatures stalking them.

And it involves picking up where they left off ten years before

More giveaways!

BEFORE, my debut NA novel releasing December 2nd, is getting some great reviews and now has 121 adds on Goodreads. 

If that figure hits 250 this week I'm giving away 3 copies of the sequel, BRASH.
So please add it HERE and tell all your friends! 

If it hits 500 before release day, there's going to be a mega surprise giveaway! 

And that's not including the current opal giveaway.

I've also been receiving emails wondering why I'm not shouting this book from the rooftops when it's already available for purchase.

Long story that has to do with being in Australia and the length of time it takes to go live at all retailers (hence the Dec 2nd official release date) and not wanting to take the gloss of my current YA release SCION OF THE SUN, but yes, you can buy BEFORE now.

Release day SCION OF THE SUN

Release day for SCION OF THE SUN.

I'm in love with this book and I hope readers will be too.

A huge amount of world-building went into this YA fantasy and I can't wait to hear what readers think.
The first 2 reviews are in:

"an exciting novel, full of adventure and magic. All in all this was a well done book- I recommend it to fans of Vampire Academy and fans of contemporary fantasy books!" (THE BEST BOOKS EVER)

"It's a unique novel in YA literature, and I hope it won't be under-appreciated! An excellent start to a new mythology-based series, this is! Even if you're not a fan of druid mythology, or you don't know much about it, fear not! Marsh did her research (really well) for this book. And don't worry about the romance (I hinted at a love triangle). Just trust me! Or read the book. Or both." (THE EATER OF BOOKS)

SCION OF THE SUN is available in print and ebook:

If you take the time to read, please leave a review.
Every review counts!
