V GAMES: FRESH FROM THE GRAVE
THE GAMES AREN’T OVER.
Selena Grey has faced death and won. Freedom awaits so long as she can let go of the last thing that ties her to the island where the V Games were held. But despite the fact surviving has always been her priority, suddenly, she finds herself torn between her head and her heart.
Meanwhile, the Helsings are about to host a brand new game on the Isle of Lidelse where blood and money rule above all else. But when Selena finds out a devastating truth that puts her loyalty to the test, will she find the courage to go on?

“Holy smokes, this novel was everything I have ever wanted, needed and craved. Easiest 5 star review of the year.” – Goodreads Reviewer
“6 stars for the fast-paced plot! There was not a wasted moment in this one. Be warned: once you start, you’d better have the time to finish, because you won’t want to put it down.” – Top 100 Goodreads Reviewer
“Want the truth? This book was a complete surprise. I’ve never had great times with vampire novels, but I’ve got to admit with a pinch of smugness that V Games is the vampire novel I didn’t know I needed until I started reading it.” – Top 3 Best Reviewer on Goodreads
“Think The Hunger Games, The Testing, and Vampire Academy…but BETTER. You read that correctly! This book surpasses some of my favorite books of all time! Color me very, very pleasantly surprised!” – Goodreads Reviewer
“This has to be the most OUTSTANDING BOOK, I have read all year in 2017 so far, and I don’t say this lightly!!! – Goodreads Reviewer
There’s more to fear in Theald than Oliver ever expected. Plunged into the fifth world of caged cities and ferocious creatures, Oliver and his friends are taken to the army base where plans are being laid to thwart the enemy. But when blood is shed by Rimori and his band of followers, the war is kick-started and Oliver is thrown right into the heart of it.
Bound by a deal with the High Mage, Oliver finds himself in more danger than ever as he becomes tangled in an extravagant plan that will not only put his life on the line, but that of his loved ones too…
How far will Oliver go to keep his sister safe? And how many people will have to die in the process…?
Everyone sees the world differently and I think it’s so important to be understanding of other people’s opinions. Even if someone completely disagrees on, say, your favourite book it’s hard not be annoyed when it’s something you are passionate about. But, as Cinderella says:
Everyone is looking for different things in books and even two people who love the same book may love it for completely different reasons! But if we all loved and hated the same things equally the world would be a very boring place indeed…
In one month’s time exactly I will be releasing Creeping Shadow to the world! I’m so excited!

Here’s the blurb:
A man waits in Vale, a world void of humanity.
A mother vanishes, her disappearance concealed by the police.
A girl collapses, black magic invading her blood.
And a boy linked to them all must fight to save his family.
Earth is just one of seven worlds. Gateways divide the realms and those who pass through must earn keys, participating in challenges that will separate the fearful from the brave, the weak from the strong, and the witless from the cunning.
Sixteen year old Oliver Knight knows nothing of the other worlds or his family’s dark past. But when his adopted sister succumbs to a deadly curse the truth is revealed and he is plunged into an unknown land in a desperate bid to save her. However, a sinister enemy is on the rise and the danger they face at every turn throws those around them under suspicion. In order to survive, Oliver must figure out who to trust, who to believe and, ultimately, who to fear…
J.K Rowling has written a stage show! And I am sooooo excited about this!
Here’s the description from the website:
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a new play by Jack Thorne will receive its world premiere in London’s West End at the Palace Theatre in the summer of 2016.
Featuring a cast of over 30, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Written by Jack Thorne and directed by Olivier and Tony award winner John Tiffany, the play brings together some of the most exciting talent working in the theatre today.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will be directed by John Tiffany with movement by Steven Hoggett, set designs by Christine Jones, costumes by Katrina Lindsay, music by Imogen Heap, lighting by Neil Austin, sound by Gareth Fry, special effects by Jeremy Chernick, illusions by Jamie Harrison and musical supervision by Martin Lowe.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, Colin Callender‘s Playground Entertainment and Harry Potter Theatrical Productions.
Casting hasn’t yet been announced but come on who isn’t hoping they’ve brought back Daniel Radcliff? I mean, I would be running to the theatre to queue for it literally now – and yeah it’s not even gonna be out until Summer 2016 so that’s how long I’d camp outside for it…..
The world Premiere is 30th July 2016 but preview tickets are going on sale from 30th October so if you want a ticket you better sign up now for priority booking!! I’m certainly going to!
All good things must end but let’s see if this one can end on a high note!

Firstly I want to say a hugggeeeeee thank you to the Fiction Fairy for nominating me. You can check out her blog here ( It’s really worth it!!)
So without further ado I give you my Day One Quote:
I was going to quote Harry Potter but I thought hmmm you all know the best Harry P quotes so instead I chose a quote from Alan Rickman who plays Snape in the films (He is a legend!). And (for those of you who know the books well) this quote is absolute genius…
Okay so that was the only 300 reference I could think of haha 🙂
I wanna say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has followed me and I (of course!) always endeavour to follow back as you lot are such a bunch of interesting people and I’ve met (cyber-met?) so many amazing people that way and found some brilliant blogs!
And in honour of this I’ve created my own award! That’s right! It might not catch on but so what!? It’ll be fun while it lasts haha!
So you might not be suprised to hear what I’ve called this award…..drumroll….
The Sparkling Unicorn Award!
This award is designed to celebrate your individuality as a person and fellow blogger. If you think about it a unicorn is just a horse with a horn and YOU are just a person with a blog and yet both equate to something special and unique!
So as part of this award I challenge you to write a four hundred word maximum blurb about your life as if it were a novel on the shelf in a bookstore!
After a stint at university, aspiring author Caroline Peckham discovers her passion as a writer and longs to fulfill her dreams. But, when summer hits, her fulltime job begins to consume her time and she struggles to juggle her passions with everyday life. And things are about to get a lot more crazy when a trip to the other side of the planet literally turns her world upside down…
And finally! Nominate five bloggers for the award. So to get started here’s mine! Go for it blogging friends! Share this award far and wide!
1) Hope to Read
3) The Fiction Fairy
4) Shannon Noel Brady
I highly recommend you check out these blogs they are fantastico!
Maybe one day farrrrr in the future someone will nominate me for The Sparkling Unicorn Award and I’ll be sitting in my rocking chair puffing on a pipe and I’ll say “Hm! Well, well…how the tables have turned….”(I’ll be super senile by the way but it’ll be totally worth it!)
“Today I’d like to sit and read,
Forget I have a job I need,
Ignore the things I have to do,
And just enjoy a book or two”
Don’t we all feel this way like….always?!
