With Kyanite Publishing officially closing its doors at the end of 2020, It Starts With A Kiss will be pulled from bookstore shelves and online catalogues. If you’ve been thinking about getting a copy, now’s the best time to grab one, as I’m not sure when it’ll be available again after New Year’s.
Alternatively, if you fancy some snail mail from Australia (even though international postage is a bit poo), I’ve got a handful of paperbacks from back when I was planning on going to an event 📚 Just drop me an email and we can chat about it 💌
Thank you, everyone who bought, reviewed, talked about, and talked with me about this book 💜 I hope to share more stories with you soon.
The Good Bits Podcast is a sexy audio collection of good bits from erotic books. It’s such an honour to have my work featured alongside the likes of Alessandra Torre, Fiona Zedde, Sierra Simone, Clare Connelly and other incredible writers.
Where the Sun Always Shines, an anthology of feel good stories, is out now!
Where the Sun Always Shines is a free anthology of feel good stories created through the donated time and effort of the authors, editors, and designers to make you smile, make you laugh, and give you hope.
Edited by Crystal L. Kirkham and Jodi Jensen 💖 I’m honoured to have my short story, Playing Trades, counted among the hope-inspiring works in this anthology. It’s now available for free in the Kyanite Shop.
Thank you for waiting for this story, and for voicing your support on Twitter and Insta while I was agonising over the draft. Every manuscript somehow manages to be a psychological and emotional trip to hell and back—yeah, even happy stories. The creative process can be such a B.
Special shoutouts to my partner for always rooting for me and taking me to all the lovely places Julie and Henry visited around Perth; to my editor Charlie Knight for the personal attention and care she gave this story; to the indelible Autumn Faraday for her inspiring CapriLuxe creation; to the amazingly talented authors who I’m honoured to have been featured alongside; and to you, yes you, for reading and writing with me 💜
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Perfectly Published Perth 2020 has been postponed to 2021. Regretfully, I’ll be unable to table on the new event date, though I hope to pop in as an attendee. Thank you to my Perth readers for your awesome support and encouragement while I’ve been preparing. I’m so sorry to let you down. If you’d like some bookish banter anyway, please always feel free to HMU on the socials 💜
Hey, lovelies! I’ll be tabling at the Perfectly Published Perth #PPP2020 signing event in July. This is a big multi-genre event, featuring authors from around Australia, all gathering at the Perth Town Hall on (hopefully) a lovely Makuru (winter) Saturday.
Come say hi and pick up a copy of It Starts With A Kiss, direct from my hands to yours. I’ll also have limited edition items for sale, which I’ll talk more about on instagram and DOT CLUB over the coming months.
Pre-orders are now open so you can secure your copy ahead of time (closes 10 June 2020). Confirmed early bird pre-orders come with a special gift, just a small thank you for helping me plan my table in advance!
Sure, she could play it cool when they talked about work, but anything else got her skittish inside and paranoid as hell, which he could tell by looking at her. Him and everyone else.
So she always made sure she was the first to look away when they made eye contact; the first to break stride when they fell in step; the first to change positions when she saw their arms folded the same way.
Thank you to everyone who preordered—you’ve made this day extra, extra exciting. Thank you to my lovely beta readers, who patiently and forgivingly answered all my fussy questions. Thank you to the friends who kept me going, kept me caffeinated, adequately sugared, and unquestioningly supported. Thank you to the readers, reviewers and everyone who’s ever replied to my mailouts for a chat.
Thank you to Kyanite Publishing for taking a chance on me, and for giving me my first legit paperback with a colourful cover and paper smell.
Thank you, most of all, to my partner N, who’s stood behind me and beside me from day one.
