Mia Hoddell–Not Enough #YA #Newadult #contemporary #romance

Author Mia Hoddell is releasing her latest contemporary romance today, so I invited her to my blog to share a little info about it. Do read on and enjoy.

Not Enough
by Mia Hoddell

Genre: Upper YA/NA Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 16th 2015

Pages: 324

Neve Colvin isn’t good enough. As an introvert, her life is a never-ending list of labels and criticism. Pressures to change come from everyone—including the one person she thought would love her unconditionally … her mother. All Neve wants is acceptance, but surrounded by extroverts it’s a wish that’s nearly impossible to fulfil.

For Neve there’s only one solution: anyone disapproving must go. Even if it means only one person will remain.

That person is her lifelong friend Blake Reynolds. He’s seen the fights with her mum, the breakdowns caused by attacks on her personality, and the battles for acceptance. Each time she is left shattered and questioning who she is, he’s the one to collect the pieces of her broken heart. Shielding her from the cruelty is his only concern. But how can he protect her when Neve is concealing a secret so dark?

Blake thinks he knows everything about her, and with their relationship developing, he assumes Neve trusts him fully. However, there is one memory Neve is too ashamed of to share. Revealing it will test Blake’s loyalty beyond what she could ever ask, and Blake is the only friend she can’t afford to lose. He’s the one person capable of dragging her from the darkness plaguing her, but with pressures to conform increasing, even Blake may not be enough to pull her back this time.

Nanowrimo progress day 3

Nanowrimo paricipant badgeProgress…progress… Well? I did some. But true to form, I’ve been distracted this last day with some work on  a different project that is so close to completion, I can’t help but work on it. If you’re a friend of mine Facebook, you’ve already seen me squee about my total word count output this year alone. Butt in chair is good, and doesn’t matter what you work on, so long as you work on it!

I hope to get some more done soon. For my readers, that “close to completion” book (the new  Reign of Tarot title) is coming. :) It looks like early next year will see a couple releases. Stay tuned!

Bicycle Requiem

“‘Bicycle Requiem’ really took me on a ride of how one random act, however horrible you find it, can turn your life into a living nightmare…. This Novelette was a great quick read. Juli D. Revezzo created quite the creative story. I’ve always enjoyed her work. A great add to your tbr list.” ~Denise. Read the full review at Amazon.

Meanwhile, Halloween…. ready…and go! :)

Igraine’s Flight Release Party! (and a sale!)

Juli D. Revezzo:

My dear friend Jolene Dawe has a brand new book release: Igraine’s Flight. Do pop by her website (Doo eet!) to check it out!

Her synopsis is as follows:

Igraine is being hunted, and it’s only a matter of time before she’s found. Enslaved and enchanted, trapped in her hellhound form by a powerful member of the Wild Hunt, Igraine has spent countless seasons leashed and trapped. When she manages to slip her master’s tether and disappear into the mortal realm, she knows time is against her. Summer is drawing to a close, and when the Hunt begins to gather to ride, she knows her master will force her to heel. If she can get enough distance between them, maybe he won’t have time to come seeking her. If she runs fast enough, far enough, maybe she’ll manage to break free.

Dog rescue and rehabilitation is hard, harrowing, often heartbreaking work, but there’s no denying that Marion is good at what she does. Her reputation for being able to help the hopeless cases is widely known throughout her county, so it’s no surprise when a local vet calls her in to help with the latest rescue. The large dog is unlike any breed Marion’s seen, but that doesn’t stop her from opening her home — and her heart — to the dog in need. Especially once her own pack readily accepts the creature.

Nothing could have prepared Marion for how her life was about to change. . .

. . . or for the naked woman suddenly in her shower.

Together, Marion and Igraine await the growing dark, counting off the days until Yule arrives, when the Wild Hunt runs free, and not even the power of Marion’s claim can keep Igraine safe. Will their commitment to one another be enough to keep Igraine free, or will she be forced to back onto the leash? Will they have found hope within each other only to lose everything?

See Jolene’s site for more.

My new novella Igraine’s Flight is now out for Kindle! I’d like to thank Juli D. Revezzo once again (probably not for the last time) for her hard, quick work on the cover design (and for holding my hand through not a small number of pre-publication panics and angst!) Also, a huge, HUGE thank you to everyone who supported this project from the very beginning.
