The Other Life NEWS

Do you know what happens in exactly one week from today?
THE OTHER LIFE hits shelves in the UK!

In celebration of this big (and scary) event, there'll be a special UK blog tour next week, starting Monday January 30th and ending Friday February 3rd.
Why is it special, you ask?
Because every day one of the participating blogs will post a diary entry from Joshua's POV. This is so special because The Other Life is told from Sherry's POV and we only get to see Joshua through Sherry's eyes. But if you want to know what's going on in hunter Joshua's head, you'll have to check out the following blogs next week:
Monday 30th January: Dark Readers
Tuesday 31st January: YA Book Reads
Wednesday 1st February: Empire of Books
Thursday 2nd February: Book Passion For Life
Friday 3rd February: Books 4 Teens

I'm so excited! It was soooo much fun writing from Joshua's POV. I hope you'll enjoy what he has to say!

3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation...and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers.

When Sherry's dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua - an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers.

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all

A New Year!

Happy New Year!

2012 will be the year of the Apocalypsies. I can’t tell you how excited I am about all of their books. And of course about my own book, The Other Life. In only 24 days it’ll hit the shelves in the UK. I can’t tell you how excited that makes me.


I wanted to use this post to write down a few resolutions for this year.

-         write two books

-         read a minimum of 80 books and at least half of them Apocalypsies books. (The books from established authors I’m most looking forward to are: Insurgent by Veronica Roth, Daughter of Bone and Smoke 2 by Laini Taylor, Body and Soul by Stacey Kade, Spellbound by Rachel Hawkins, Timeless by Gail Carriger)

-         eat less meat (only once a week)

-         work out on my elliptical every day. The last few days I managed to do this and it makes me feel so much better!

-         Have more patience (not sure how well this will work out but I’ll try my best...)

Btw, I’m one of the new members of The League of Extraordinary Writers. Here’s my intro post.

Do you have resolutions for 2012?
