New Novella: Deep Desires!

Phew! Has it really been so long since I said stuff, here? How time flies when you're being crushed by deadlines. But just to be clear: I love being crushed by deadlines. I'd never trade that sort of crushing for any other type, even if the other type was Armie Hammer suddenly sitting on my head.

I mean, I'd like Armie Hammer sitting on my head. I certainly wouldn't discourage him from using my face a chair.

It's just not quite as orsum as the constantly jolting realisation that I'm a writer. I have deadlines! I have deadlines and work and I do fings! Man, never thought I'd be here, three years ago. Thank God I chose a writing career over being Armie Hammer's personal bum cushion.

But unfortunately, all of this nonsense means that I neglect my blog, dammit. Must try to do better! And I'll start here, by saying fings about my new novella. Yep, that's right. It's been so long that I actually have another novella out. It's called Deep Desires, and look, here it is:


Was so psyched to get that cover, I tell you what. Really suits the story, which is all dark and emotional and about two people who have to overcome things to be all hot and heavy and happy with each other. Which I think really goes with those breathless but somehow separated people in that image!


Anyhoo, here's the blurb for the book:

The Further She Goes, the More She Needs...
Abbie Gough has done her best to escape a violent past. But in the process, she’s avoided life, desire and love. So when she sees her equally closed off neighbour, Ivan, performing for her one night through his window, she can’t stop looking.

Voyeuristic pleasures become Abbie’s lifeline. But as she comes alive and craves more, Ivan backs away. He has his own secrets , the kind that draw her into kinky games and her own shameful desires, while also preventing real intimacy between them. But now she’s found someone so special, she’s not about to give up easily. And she’s willing to do whatever it takes to melt Ivan’s cool exterior. Even if captivating him means pushing through her limits to whatever lies beyond.

And some links:

It's only, like, 99p/$1.64 at the moment, so I reckon that's a bargain. It's 40k, so you're really getting some content for your quid, and honest it's a good book! It has nice fings in it! And sexy times! And oh I'm hopeless at this. How about if I give you Mandi Schreiner's word for it? She's an orsum book blogger, and look what she said:

"Whoa. So hot."

So it's totally worth your time. Honest. I promise. *hides from promo*


  1. Hi, I've been so looking forward to Deep Desires coming out, can't wait to read it!
    Jen x

  2. Congrats! I've already got the book burning up space on my Kindle. Unfortunately, it'll have to wait until I'm out from under some crushing deadlines of my own. (But hey, there are worse problems to have, right?)

    And you can have Armie Hammer sitting on your face, as long as Fassbender can sit on mine. Deal? :)

  3. Thanks Madelynne!

    And Cat - it's a deal. Thanks for buying, honey. xx

  4. I have got to say this book was one of the best books I have ever read and I don't say that lightly. It was just so dark, haunting, tortured, erotic and disturbing and I Loved it. Your writing is outstanding. My only complaint was that it was too short and the ending too abrupt. I want more about this couple so PLEASE tell me there will be a sequel.

  5. Wow, thank you so much! That's such a lovely thing to say. Am definitely considering a sequel in light of the response to the book - lots of people have said they'd like to see what happens to Abbie and Ivan!

  6. Oh please do, you would make a lot of people very happy, myself included.

  7. Char,
    When can we expect a sequel to Forever Dead series?


  8. Am hoping to squeeze something in by the end of the year, so hopefully the start of next year some time! Can't guarantee, tho - crushing deadlines!
