Kidnapped by a vampire, epically farted on by a pug and dragged through the pits of Hell. Welcome to Eve Eden’s world in the small and strange town of Twin Forest.  Eve has goals. She has dreams and ambitions that don’t involve staying in this weird, podunk town. When supernatural forces collide and drop her into the heart of England, she’s not exactly pleased. When Eve said she wanted to get the heck out of dodge, she didn’t mean getting transported into a torture chamber inside the dungeon of an actual castle. Damned souls rising from the depths of Hell. Her body’s sudden ability to heal quickly from wounds. Resisting her inexplicable attraction to a vampire who’s been sent to kill her. Can life get any worse for Eve? Apparently it can, because just around the corner at Twin Forest’s cemetery… waits the zombie horde.

Eve Eden vs. the Blood Sucking Vampires
The Bedevilled Trilogy - Book II
Teen Comedy Horror Romance
Available everywhere and on Amazon: getBook.at/Eve2-e, Smashwords, Kobo, B&N, etc.
A year ago the town of Twin Forest was almost overrun by zombies, an incident so hellish it turned Eve Eden's hair white. She now dyes it black to suit her mood. A mood that's worsened when she's abducted by vampires and taken to England once again. Enter James. He's sixteen years old like Eve and he also possesses a secret as volatile as her own. James is English and he's got a smokin' hot accent to rival Nathan's. Ah, Nathan, Eve's moody would-be vampire boyfriend. That is, he would-be her boyfriend if he'd stop acting so intense all the time. As for the other moody vampires, they've only got one mood and it's an angry, foul tempered one. Not even Thunderbug and his epic farts help much when it comes to facing off against the blood sucking vampires!

Eve Eden vs. the Devilish Demon
The Bedevilled Trilogy - Book III
Teen Comedy Horror Romance
Available everywhere and on Amazon: getBook.at/Eve3-e, Smashwords, Kobo, B&N, etc.
Nathan Kane is back in Eve Eden’s life whether she wants him to be or not. Actually, as time goes on, she finds his company isn’t too horrific to bear, just so long as he keeps his fangs to himself. 
As for time going on, it’s doing more than just moving forward. Eve might have thought she had it bad getting transported from her home town to an English castle dungeon all the time, but that’s noting in comparison to the way she feels about time-travel. It does a number on her psyche for sure. 
The devilish demon will stop at nothing to get what she wants from Twin Forest and Eve Eden will not be stopped, equally as vehemently, in fighting against the evil woman from hell. Besides, evil might not be too difficult to defeat now that Thunderbug’s farts are no longer just stinky, they’re positively explosive with hellfire!

Hottest Day of the Year!

This day was too hot! I did the school run this afternoon. Started sweating when I had to take 4 bags of recycling downstairs. Then I got into my car and it was like sitting in a fan assisted oven on 220 degrees Celsius! I couldn't breathe! Not even opening all the windows helped! If I had working A/C it would have blown up my engine today. I can't fathom how cars didn't explode instantaneously with boiling petrol sitting in tanks. 

When I got out the car my feet felt on fire because I wore black flipflops! What an idiot! I was supposed to go to the library today but there's no way I made it. Heatstroke started to set in on the drive back from the kid's school. My neck started feeling squeezed on the right and my face and top of my head throbbed with heat. I made it to the somewhat cooler shade underneath Morrisons petrol station where there was hot blasting breeze, at least. Grabbed some milk and popsicles and hurried home.

By the time I got the popsicles into the freezer my head was threatening to explode with heat. Sweat poured into my eyes. I almost passed out from heat exhaustion, so I jumped into a cold shower, even though I know cold showers are for psychos.

It felt so good the cold water pouring over my head and face. I had to stand under the cold water for ages as the throbbing slowly went and I could see straight again. I was still dizzy for an hour after my shower, but I've cooled tons since the sun went down. Well, not all the way. Usually I get the chills after sweating, but that's impossible today.

This was the Malvern Hills today. Not really, but could have been gosh!

STRANGER THINGS All Nighter

So I pulled an all-nighter last night/this morning. No, not raving or partying. Watching Netflix of course! Yall know how that goes. Well, yall who binge watch Netflix and Amazon Video, etc.

There I was in bed about to zonk out, checkin' Twitter. I saw a tweet about a Netflix show called *Stranger Things. I was like oo this looks good, when I opened it up in the app. And that was it really. I got hooked in straight away within the first 10 seconds.

It's rare a TV show or movie comes along that grabs me like that. I love it, and I hate it. Love it because the show is THAT good. Hate it because I can watch every episode all at once. Which means I watched this one until 6am. I did get about 2-3 hours sleep this morning, but wow my day is going to be rough! lol

Anyway, I highly recommend Stranger Things if you like spooky intrigue that you can't tear your eyes away from because the story keeps moving and the characters each play a gripping part. Also if you like all things supernatural dark. Watch it! I highly recommend.

*From IMDB: When a young boy disappears, his mother must confront terrifying forces in order to get him back.

There's Always Time For Pokemon Go, Right?

I got the dishes done today. No, I don't have a dishwasher. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person left in the developed world without a dishwasher. But then I go on Facebook and post about it and I get comments back saying other friends of mine don't have dishwashers either. The point is, I'm blogging about the fact that I got the dishes done because I never have time to get anything done and there were lots of dishes piled up. I don't even have time to write this blog post, but here I am writing it while the toddler watches Sponge Bob and the nine year old plays with her toys in her room. We will all go out and find some pokemon after dinner later. Good for exercise, but I must not run into the road like I almost did last time. It wasn't my fault. I caught a Pokemon and the pokeball malfunctioned and flew into the road! I didn't score that pokemon either, it's malfunctioned as a weird shadow in my pokedex.

Managed to get some novel writing done of Flutterby Girl. Exciting stuff going on in Ami's world! But I don't have time to stay in her world for long.

Yes, Suz. We get it. You don't have time to even exist. Now shut up already. Fine. Good bye. Off to eat then gotta catch 'em all! lol - See what I did there? It's the pokemon motto!

My 9 year old daughter caught this one on the road right outside our place. Unfortunately it's still out there stuck in a malfunctioned pokeball! I'm not kidding. It's a silhouette in my pokedex. So annoying.
My toddler caught this one just sitting in McDonald's and it's not easy to catch the flying ones!

TREE Part II

Seeing as how I wrote a whole ode to the tree out my livingroom window, I decided to update its livelihood today. And here's how the tree is growing in the middle of summer.


Once again my view is filled with green for our sixth summer living in this flat. I'm so amazed by this tree's resilience.

Sort of related to this topic; I had a dream last night that we lived in a hovel, so when I woke up this morning I was glad to see that in reality we live in a small flat yes, but it's like a sweet palace compared to the dump in my dream! In other words; I'm grateful. Also, try not to dream you live in a palace if you don't IRL, because when you wake you'll be disappointed with your current abode.

Malvern is lovely in the summer. Even though this summer has been ever so grey. I don't mind. The sun is too strong for me now. My skin and eyes have gotten used to almost zero sunlight after living here for fifteen years.

Terrible POD Book

I am not a happy bunny. I recently ordered a paperback copy of The Girl in the Woods from Amazon UK to put on my shelf. When it arrived the top layer was like this:


Totally and completely unacceptable! The top layer is peeling off and there's bubbles all over the cover underneath.

Here's what my other matte book covers look like:



These are so smooth and pristine. The covers feel almost as though they're coated in soft rubber spray. As an author I want my books to look their best, and if Amazon is sending out my paperbacks from a broken POD machine with shitty covers, then I know readers have given harsh reviews for a lot less.

It's just so upsetting because this is the second time I ordered The Girl in the Woods, and here's what it looks like now:


You can see there are still bubbles on the spine. The book underneath is a perfectly matte version. The cover of TGITW doesn't feel rubbery and soft either. It's as though the POD book making machine stuck the matte layer on, but did not heat it or melt it to the cover well at all!

I've contacted Amazon yet again and I'm waiting to for their response. I don't want shiny book covers as the alternate option, because matte is on trend right now, plus it looks and feels so much nicer than a glossy cover.

To indie authors I recommend buying your books now and then to see if they're printing properly for readers.
