Just A Few Words...

Welcome to my blog, which is designed to give information and inside gossip about The Furry Tale Chronicles, my rom-com series. The first book, If The Shoe Fits, releases with Crimson Romance in April 2013.

Cover Reveal!!!



I got my cover, and isn't it purrrrrty? The art department at Crimson are absolutely fantastic! Actually, I need to reiterate that the entire team at Crimson are awesome. Nothing but friendliness & helpfulness, and super efficient into the bargain! I really couldn't ask for more.

I love the simpleness of the cover. It looks clean and fresh. And I love the kitty cat, sitting so saucily on the title, cleverly echoing the letter 'S'. Gorgeousness all over really... *sighs happily*

And now for the official blurb:

Life isn’t a fairy tale… except when it is.
 

There’s nothing wrong with Ella Gibson’s life— it just isn’t very exciting, despite being surrounded by lingerie. Working for Cardiff’s top modelling agency should have been glamorous, but most of the time Ella is running around with memos and cups of coffee. It’s a far cry from living the dream, but skirting the edge of her fantasy life is enough.

Then comes the day when her cat starts to talk, claiming to be Ella’s fairy godmother. As if that weren’t crazy enough, the pesky puss becomes a fashion advisor and behavioral expert, too. Add an evil ex-stepmother, a hunk called Charming, plus a looming party-cum-ball, and you have all the elements of a classical fairy tale. There’s even a couple of ugly sisters—the fact that they are two gorgeous gay men being neither here nor there.

Ella’s not your typical fairy-tale princess though, and it will take more than a discarded glass slipper to get her man. It’s quite possible she may have to curb her enthusiasm for cursing a wee bit, not to mention her love of vodka. And can Muse, her surprisingly straight-laced feline friend, overcome her prudishness long enough for Ella to sneak a kiss or three with her intended beau?

If The Shoe Fits releases with Crimson Romance April 29th.

  
Still in a sort of euphoric daze at present... I've had some fabulous feedback on the cover, and I've also had a sneak peak at a review that will be posted somewhere very soon, so I'm pretty much floating on a high at the moment.

Catch you soon, my lovelies!! x

Quickly Passing Through...

Hello!!

Just wanted to quickly stop by and fill you in...

Release day is creeping ever closer, and yesterday I received both my ARC's (that's advance reader copies for those of you who, like me until very recently, didn't know what an ARC was) and the mock-up of my cover. The cover is AWESOME, but I can't share it yet. There'll be a cover reveal post later this week though, and I can't wait to show everyone!

Also, you may notice that up on the left of the screen there is an A-Z badge. I am nuts, but I have decided to take part in this year's April A-Z challenge on BOTH of my blogs. And seeing how If The Shoe Fits releases at the end of April, I'm going to use both blogs to spread the word. Over on my Princess of Procrastination blog, I'll be using each letter to represent a word that is something to do with the publication process, while on here, I'm going to do what I'm calling 'promotional limericks'. These limericks will somehow link to a character or scene from the book, and I'm hoping the little teasers will help to engage some interest in potential readers.

Plus, limericks are fun... *grins*

That's all for today... it really was a quick visit! I'll be back in a few days with the cover reveal!
