Ancestral Secrets now on Audible!

I'm really pleased that Ancestral Secrets, the third book in the Adept Solutions Series of Investigations for the Magickally Challenged (surely that's one of the longest book titles?) is now available as an audiobook. Yeah!! Currently Stars & Ashes is being recorded by the same narrator, Apryl Renee West, which gives me confidence as I know she does a great job. 

Ancestral Secrets, like all Audible's audiobooks, are free with a 30-day trial.



Check out a sample here: https://adbl.co/2QYPt7o


Also available on Amazon and iTunes.

The Good, the Bad and the Freebies!

First, the good which is short and sweet! It’s great a feeling when the hard work you put it pays off, and Madaxa’s Heir has been the best release I have had so far. Yeah! 

Now, the bad which is not so short and not sweet at all. I have made a copyright infringement complaint to Amazon because someone has copied, pasted and uploaded a book I unpublished in January 2017. The book in question is an early version of Healer’s Magic (under its first incarnation as Tatya’s Return). Whoever it is has even used my name, but Amazon confirmed it’s not been uploaded from my KDP account, which means any sales won't be going into my bank account. I unpublished this book 2 years ago and re-released it as Healer’s Magic after paying a reputable editor a whole lot of hard-earned money. So please do not buy this book. Amazon is taking its time removing the book from sale, and I have asked them to block sales while the dispute is ongoing – but have had no confirmation they are doing so. As you can imagine, I have cursed this nasty cheat more than a few times, but, hopefully, Amazon's copyright department will sort this out sometime soon.
Thank goodness it's time for the Freebies! I have three series and have made the first in each series free.  So if you don’t already have Stars & Ashes, Hekate’s Chalice or Healer’s Magic, then pop over to your favorite digital retailer and download one or all of them for free! 
FREE at your favorite digital retailers!
I have also released the three series as box sets ($4.99 per box set), and if you fancy bingeing on your favorite, now you can. 
Only $4.99!
And, last but not least, if you’re looking for some new authors, check out this great science-fiction and fantasy giveaway… you never know what little gems you might find!


Until next time, be kind to yourselves and to others, stay well and keep reading,

Best wishes,

Teagan.

Madaxa's Heir is Live!


I'm super thrilled to let you know the final episode in The Saoirse Saga, Madaxa’s Heir, is now live! 
This is always a moment of shivering excitement and a certain degree of terror as all the hard work of the last few months, interrupted by moving house, finally comes to a conclusion as the book is published. 
I do feel sad when a story ends because something which has occupied my mind and my days for months has come to an end, and I shall miss these characters: but I’m also happy because sharing them with readers like you completes the process.

When the one you love betrays you, who can you trust?

Protected by a holy warrior and pursued by bounty hunters and the emperor’s assassins, Kia is hiding a secret the emperor can never find out—she is carrying his grandchild. After giving birth, Kia has to leave her daughter and resume her duties as a member of Prince Rial’s personal guard.

Discovering Rial has betrayed her shatters her trust in him, but when a rebel force attacks the emperor’s fleet, Kia must put aside her personal feelings and stand by Rial’s side as he aids his father.

During the battle, she seizes an opportunity to free herself, and the galaxy, from the emperor’s tyranny. Is this one throw of the dice a mad gamble that will result in her death, or can she—against all odds—achieve the ultimate success?
The final explosive episode in the fast-paced action-packed Saoirse Saga is on sale at 99c for one week only. On the 7th October the price will be 2.99, so pick up your copy today!
I’d like to give a special thanks to the awesome members of my ARC team—you guys rock!  Thank you for everything.
And here are the links:
Until next time, be kind to yourselves and to others, stay well and keep reading!
Best wishes,
Teagan.

Featured!

I remember when I was young, sometimes at Christmas or on birthdays, I’d open a gorgeously wrapped present and be filled with amazement and satisfaction when I saw the one item I’d been praying someone would give me.
It isn’t my birthday and Christmas is still some way off, but I opened an email the other day that gave me the exact same feeling of surprise and  delight. And, no, I hadn’t won the lottery, which would be truly miraculous as I don’t play because I can’t bear the weekly disappointment, but it was from Instafreebie, (if you don't know about this site, check it out). They'd written to let me know that they’d chosen Stars & Ashes to be featured on their blog, email, and social media on the 1st of August, as well as on their homepage for the week!  Yeah!! (I admit there was a lot of jumping up and down and grinning like an idiot for a while.) For an indie publisher like me that was definitely a wow moment. Traditional publishers have way bigger budgets to promote their authors, so to be given this platform is a wonderful bonus.
So, if you haven’t already got it, you can download the full version of Stars & Ashes from now until the 8th August on Instafreebie. After that only the preview will be available.
Take a minute and check out my book and the many other great books available.

Hekate's Chalice now on Audible!


Yes, my audiobook venture continues with Hekate's Chalice now live on Audible! 

Here's the blurb: 

A stolen artifact. An imminent deadline. A tenacious investigator.  
JB runs a private detective agency, but if business doesn't pick up soon, he'll have to close the doors for good. When someone steals Hekate's chalice, JB and his maverick team jump at the chance to track down the supernatural object. They're resourceful and determined, but can they outsmart wizards, witches, and daemons before the client's deadline expires?  

If you like gripping mysteries interwoven with generous doses of magic and humor, then you're going to love this imaginatively creative world. Hekate's Chalice is the first volume of the Adept Solutions series.

Audiobook listeners are a discerning eager audience, and if you're a writer and haven't already got your books available in this format my advice is do it! An interesting challenge comes into play with a narrator entering the equation. Not only does your story have to satisfy but where one person may hear a smooth honeyed tone, another may find the same voice monotonous and boring. In the end though, the listening experience is, just like reading or eating or your favorite color, a personal and subjective one.

So here's the link for you to check out the sample for yourself:

https://www.amazon.com/Hekates-Chalice-Adept-Solutions-Book/dp/B07DCWPLNY/ 

You can listen to the book for free with Audible's free trial, and get another book, too.

Stay well and best wishes,
Teagan.

New Releases, Audiobooks and an Early Easter Sale!



One Summer in Montmartre audiobook is live! I thought about doing an audiobook for a long time, but hesitated to take the plunge. However, after a reviewer's encouragement (thank you, Steve!) I finally went for it. As my first audiobook it was a real learning curve, but I’m thrilled with the final result. One Summer in Montmartre was also the first book I published on Amazon in 2014 and has a special place in my heart. There's also a large print version for those who are visually impaired but still enjoy reading. 

Here’s the blurb:
Paris 1873: Despite being a devoted husband and father, Luc Marteille, a charismatic Impressionist artist, becomes obsessed with his young model, Hélène. Flattered by his attentions, she becomes torn between Luc and her fiancé; and faces a decision that could destroy the lives of everyone around them.
Paris, 2007: Grieving over the death of her son, and with her marriage in trouble, Anna's life is falling apart. When a long-hidden love letter is discovered in the back of her favorite painting, she seizes the opportunity to go to Paris. Intending to research Hélène, the mysterious recipient of the letter, she is thrown together with the arrogant François. Dependent on his help, Anna realizes the tension between them is attraction. Should she continue a lifetime of playing it safe or listen to her heart?
 
You can download the audiobook as one of two books in a free trial with Audible: 



I hadn't planned to publish another new book this week, but I recently pulled together and polished some short stories I’d written, and my marvelous editor returned them sooner than expected. So I'm thrilled that my first short story collection, Untender Lives, is live!
 


Here’s the blurb:
Five compelling stories about five women who face very different challenges—some more common, some less so. From a young rock singer, who wonders if her dream of success is about to disappear, to a billionaire, who’s looking for a shortcut to salvation, this entertaining mix of genres is perfect for a quick read.
The book is now available at all amazon stores and free with Kindle Unlimited. 



And last, but by no means least...an EARLY EASTER SALE!!

New Release! Yay!


ANCESTRAL SECRETS is LIVE!!



Ancestral Secrets is now available on Amazon and in Kindle Unlimited for those who subscribe to that program. Yay! The last few days have been hectic, and at one point I wasn’t sure I’d make my deadline, (I’ll spare you the details and myself some embarrassment) but somehow everything has come together.
Early reviewers of Hekate’s Chalice, the first in the series, asked for more relationship development between the characters so, although there’s a crime to solve, I’ve tried to satisfy readers in this respect. Here’s the blurb:
Blackmail, double dealing and dubious secret organizations. Solving one problem one is doable for the Adept Solutions crew but dealing with all three will be a challenge.
Someone is blackmailing three of the most powerful citizens in Tropolis; the mayor, a master vampire and a ruthless crime boss, and all three have hired the Adept Solutions agency to find the perpetrator.
Unfortunately JB's investigative team are not at full strength. Jason is in thrall to Zhanna, the faerie, Nikki's worried about her new husband cheating on her and JB's father is dying. He's also distracted by his new relationship with Gemma, the fourth member of the group. Added to the mix, two secret organizations, with conflicting agendas, have surfaced in the city.
Can the team put their personal difficulties aside, track down the blackmailer and outwit their rivals before their clients' secrets are revealed?
If you like cozy mysteries interwoven with entertaining doses of magic and humor, then you’ll love this urban fantasy novella, and if you haven’t read any of the series, Hekate’s Chalice, Book One is free to download - click the Newsletter Sign Up tab at the top of the page to receive your free copy. 
In the meantime, keep reading, stay well and best wishes,
Teagan,

Season's Greetings!

This year has been a very busy one, and today I'm super excited that the second episode of the Saoirse Saga, Awakening Defiance, is live! Yeah! Lots of smiley faces and jumping up and down alternating with release day jitters. I'm exuberantly happy at sending my latest story out into the world, but there's always a moment of sadness at leaving the characters and world I've created... but if that's my only worry, I'm counting my blessings.




Here's the description:


       Kia wants more than survival. She wants vengeance and her freedom.

       Kia has joined Lord Rial’s elite guard and is collecting secrets. Secrets that can get her killed. The pretense of being Rial's consort offers some protection, but neither of them trusts the other. When the chance for retribution on her father's betrayers comes, she takes it. But there is a price to pay.
       Her feelings toward Rial change, and Kia is shocked when she discovers the emperor’s schemes include experiments on his son. If her ambition to destroy the emperor is to succeed, she must rescue Rial. But are her desperate last minute plans enough to save him?

The book is 0.99c and here are the links:

If you haven’t yet started the Saoirse Saga, I’ve also released Books 1 & 2 in a two-for-one deal at $1.49.




Here are the links if you enjoy compelling action-adventure tales with a tenacious heroine who doesn't know the meaning of defeat.

***


I'll soon be back in my warm cosy writing cave as Book 3 of Adept Solutions with JB and his maverick team is half planned, and ideas for Book 3 of the Saoirse Saga are popping into my head at the oddest moments. So, it's all go and it's all good.

In the meantime, stay well, keep reading and best wishes!
