In which I dirty my mind (and yours) with sex, drugs, coarse language, and violence.

So guess what? I'm actually prepared for the launch of my next novel well in advance. Since 2011, I've just been releasing my books and then telling everyone about them.

But this time I'm going to be a bit more strategic, because this book is special (as it's not my usual fare). It's a psychological thriller (or what is commonly termed nowadays as "domestic chiller" or "chick noir") and I have very high hopes for it!

If you are interested, would you like to sign up to the blog tour which will take place in October this year? Everyone who signs up will receive a free e-copy of the book, and you will also have the opportunity to offer a free copy to one of your blog readers as well.


​Here is the book trailer:

Here is the blurb:

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she’s rehabilitating herself as a “normal” mother and mathematics teacher, it’s time to stop dreaming about slicing people's throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne’s leading drug lord, and simultaneously dating his best mate, is not ideal, she’s determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover’s daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia’s back. It isn’t long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia’s motive?

Hope your week is off to a great start!
