As you would all know by now, tomorrow will see the launch of my new book, Deception.
Deception is the third book of the White Rose series which features Beth and Warren as the main characters. As far as characters go, those two are my favourites. I'm not sure about the exact reason why; I like all of my characters. Okay, not all. Some of the baddies don't rate, but some of them do. Perhaps it's something to do with Beth and Warren being the first, and where it all began. All I know is I couldn't bear not writing about them, so I guess that means the White Rose series is set to continue for quite a while!
There's a few thank you's I want to say.
First of all - my readers. You keep me pushing forward and striving to make each story a good one. Thank you for your faith and your great feedback. I hope you like this one!
My beta readers/first editors, SB and MM. You take my raw manuscript and point out all the faults and tell me what you like about it. Without you two ladies my stories would be flawed beyond belief! Thank you for checking details, correcting errors, and helping me bring the stories to life.
My family give me incredible support - they're my own little encouragement squad. I love you all! I'd like to make a special mention of my son's knack of knowing when I need a cup of tea and bringing one in to me.
Deception is dedicated to my mum-in-law and to my parents. My parents passed away before I began writing, but they always supported my creative endeavours throughout my life and I know they would be proud of my achievements. My mum-in-law has supported and encouraged me, and her words of praise mean the world. She is not only a wonderful mum-in-law, but since the passing of my own parents she has done all she can to give me the love and support they no longer can.
So what's next? I've been working on my calendar for 2017 and it looks like there will be another couple of books coming out next year...and yes, one of them will be another White Rose book.
P.S. Don't forget the first two books in the series, Roses and Retribution, are on sale until December 3!
