Black & White blog tour Day 6

A fine Saturday and today on the blog tour for my YA dystopian novel, Black & White, I'm cruising with The Cynical Sailor and his Salty Sidekick (that's Ellen and Scott Jacobson by another name) where my character Ezmerelda is undergoing a careers interview at school. Let's see how she gets on!

Black & White Release Day and Blog Tour Day 1!

Today's the day - part 1 of my YA dystopian trilogy is out there in the world, and to celebrate the occasion I'm embarking on a two week blog tour, which is going to be a lot of fun. If you care to follow along, you'll meet some of the main characters in Black & White and get a glimpse into their world, as well as gaining an insight into some of the mechanics underlying the universe. Today I'm kicking off at the following stops:

L. Diane Wolfe - guest post
Jeff O'Handley - author interview

Hope you'll join me! There'll be a giveaway running throughout the tour, in which you can win a $10 Amazon giftcard or an ecopy of my collection A Change of Mind and Other Stories. And of course Black & White is available at all the usual outlets:

Announcing my Author Newsletter!

It's the start of another week and I have some exciting news. Well, it's exciting to me, because it's something I've been meaning to do for a long time, but I finally got my act together and created an author newsletter! Updates will come every two to three months, so no need to worry about your inbox getting clogged up, and will feature things like news of upcoming releases, giveaways, and promotions. Basically, whenever anything exciting is happening. I'll also be including things like deleted scenes and some exclusive flash fiction. As a taster for that, all subscribers will receive a copy of the prequel to my Black & White series, entitled The Treatment. This novella of around 17,500 series, which I wrote in between Parts 2 and 3 of the trilogy, isn't available anywhere else.

The prequel is a separate story to the series, with its own characters, and you can read either as a standalone, but it does provide a bit more background on the world I've created. If you enjoy it, it would be immensely appreciated if you shot me a message to let me know!

You can subscribe to the newsletter by clicking here or completing the handy-dandy form which is just in my sidebar over there.

Do you enjoy author newsletters? Any tips if you have one yourself? What do you like, or not like, to see in them? I'm totally open to any feedback on what to include in mine.
