Book Release: Riddler’s Edge Book Ten

Merry the Day After Christmas!

There’s a new release from Riddler’s Edge, and this one is holiday themed.  Hopefully everyone is having a wonderful time, and enjoying some rest, food and reading. I have a stack of new books to get through myself, not to mention the ones on my Kindle, so I’m very glad to have a little bit of time off.  As always, this one is in Kindle Unlimited, and I hope you all enjoy the read.

Totally Married

Jingle Bells, magic spells, marriage lies ahead …

This holiday season, Aisling Smith has everything she ever wanted. She knows what age she is this birthday, she has her parents to celebrate the Winter Solstice and Christmas with and – oh yeah – she’s marrying the love of her life.

But this is Riddler’s Edge, and if Aisling’s learned anything since moving here, it’s that no celebration is ever complete without a murder …

Or two …

The murder victims are integral to Aisling’s wedding – like her DJ, for starters. Is someone trying to stop the wedding, or are they trying to send a message? Either way, Aisling and Dylan need to find out, and soon. Otherwise, the wedding might not happen at all.

A Little Bit Spacey: A New Release from Riddler’s Edge

It’s all getting  a bit spacey in Riddler’s Edge right now. I hope you have fun with this one.  Here’s the blurb and store links.

Riddler’s Edge Book Nine

Abducted cows?  Crop circles?  Surely Aisling Smith lives in a town filled with magic, and not science fiction.  So why does it seem like the aliens are coming?

At a town festival, a popular cow disappears.  The following day, it’s a man who’s vanished.  As more and more animals go missing, and crop circles appear around town, Aisling learns that the same thing has happened in Riddler’s Edge once before.  Have the missing men and animals been abducted by aliens, or is the culprit closer to home?

A New Release from Riddler’s Edge

The eighth book of the series is out today, and while we’re having a very soggy summer in most parts of Ireland, in Riddler’s Edge things are much, much worse …

A Little Bit Chilly

It’s summertime in Riddler’s Edge, so how come it feels so chilly?

While the town prepares for a performance of The Snow Queen: The Musical, some very frosty murders occur. Have the victims been frozen by an over-enthusiastic air conditioner, or is there magic involved?

Aisling will need her friends to help her crack this case, so it’s a little unfortunate that Dylan is avoiding them all. He also has a secret visitor at the lighthouse, and Aisling is itching to get to the bottom of that little mystery, just as soon as she stops the entire town from freezing to death …

As always, it’s free in Kindle Unlimited.  Here are the Amazon store links:

New Release: Slippery Slope (A Riddler’s Edge Side Story)

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, I want to tell you all that there’s a story from the Riddler’s Edge world out today, featuring Pru as the narrator.  She and Greg take a trip to the enclave of Snowy Hollow, where it’s always winter. And, because my characters are just darned unlucky, they wind up in a spot of trouble while they’re there.  The blurb and the store links are at the bottom.

If you’ve been following my website or my newsletter, you’ll know that I was unsure of whether to keep releasing while all of this was going on. But so many people wrote to me to tell me that reading is keeping them sane right now, so as long as people want to read my books, I’ll keep writing them (honestly, I’m not sure I could stop if I tried!). Here’s a little idea of what I’m planning for the coming months:

There’ll be another release from the main series this summer, with Ash as the narrator once more – I’m working on it right  now, and having a blast. I’d always intended for the Riddler’s Edge series to be seven books – everything was wrapped up and the characters got their happy endings.  But so many new ideas kept cropping up that I just had to get back to the series.  There will be a little bit more from Katy Kramer, too,  albeit a little later this year – Hamish still has to find a way to become a man again, after all.  I can’t leave that guy hanging! And there’s another Wayfair Witches adventure plotted as well – I’m really looking forward to writing that one.

In other news, we’re still on lockdown here in Ireland, although they have reopened garden centres and hardware stores, which is a relief, because gardening and DIY keep my husband busy 🙂  It’s taken me a while to get used to things – I’m a creature of routine – but I’ve finally settled in to this version of normality.  There’s been lots of reading and writing, and we’ve been baking so much that I’m going to be a couple of stone heavier when this is all over.

I know there are places in the world far worse affected than Ireland, and my hopes and prayers are with you all. Stay safe everyone, and thanks so much for reading.

The Blurb:

A romantic getaway turns deadly …

When Pru and Greg head to the enclave of Snowy Hollow for the Winter Wizard Festival, they’re looking forward to a weekend of snow-filled fun. But Snowy Hollow is not what they expected. The enclave is ruled by the Byrne coven, whose hobbies include: being mean to the yeti, blaming other people for their crimes, and littering the enclave with upmarket bars and terrible food.

When Pru predicts the death of a famous sportsman, Oscar Brown, things take a deadly turn.

Pru and Greg find themselves suspected of Oscar’s murder, and unable to escape the enclave. Together with some newfound friends, they set out to track down the real killer, stop the Byrnes from destroying the enclave, and find a way home.

There will be mystery, vampire magic, and a whole lot of snacking along the way …

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Seven

Hi guys,

It’s first thing in the morning here, and I feel in need of a cup of coffee.  But before I do that, I want to let you know that  Book 7 of the Riddler’s Edge series went live while I was sleeping, and is now available to download.

I need to tell you ahead of time that this one’s going to be a bit of a nail-biter, guys.  Everything with Vlad’s Boys will finally come to a head, and there might be moments where the stress makes you throw your kindles and tablets against the walls.  But hold off doing that, will you?  Firstly, those devices are expensive, and secondly, believe me when I promise you that the nail-biting portion of the book does end on a high note.  You should all (hopefully) be satisfied with the way the story ends.

On a slightly more schmaltzy note,  I’d also like to tell you that I appreciate so much all of the readers who’ve read through the series so far, and signed up for my newsletter or blog to boot.

Wherever you go to keep up to date with my new releases, I’m happy to have you as a reader.

 

Here’s the blurb:

The battle is on …

Aisling and her friends have been trying to find the leader of Vlad’s Boys for a long time. Now, they finally know the truth behind the vampire gang. Unfortunately, they also know that Vlad’s Boys have a new, unknown source of power to rely on, and beating them seems like an impossible task.

But there are other troubling things happening in Riddler’s Edge. Wizards are being murdered in a very unusual way. And Greg – recently turned into a vampire – is enjoying his new life a little bit too much.

They need to find a way to turn their lollipop-loving wizard back into himself again, because without Greg on their side, the fight against Vlad’s Boys might well be lost.

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Six

Happy Friday Everyone,

I’ve got a new release from Riddler’s Edge for you guys.  Book Six in the series is now available to download from Amazon.  Hopefully you all enjoy this one. The next release will be in a few weeks’ time, another tale from Riddler’s Edge, titled A Little Bit Vampy.

 Old-School Witch

Is it ever a good idea to dig up the past?

When a member of the Historical Society is murdered, there’s no magical cause to be found.  If anything, it seems like it might be a case of simple revenge.  But when the society goes on to unveil an old, forgotten school in Riddler’s Edge, it seems that there could be far more to the murder than meets the eye.

Riddler’s Edge School for the Gifted was a safe haven for supernatural children.  So why was the school set on fire in the sixties?  And why has it been forgotten until now?

In order to find the real murderer, Ash and the gang must first find the surviving students.  Along the way, they might just dig up some more secrets, too – like who is really behind the group known as Vlad’s Boys?

And until they find the answers, they have a wedding to organise, a wedding that almost everyone believes is doomed …

New Release: Riddler’s Edge Book Five

It’s almost Christmas, and the latest release from the Riddler’s Edge series just happens to be a festive tale.  You’d almost think I planned it that way 🙂

So Very Unfae

The holidays are coming.  It’s a time for family, frolics and … mince-pie murders?

All that Aisling wants to focus on this Christmas is how to reunite with her long-lost family, but Riddler’s Edge has other ideas in mind.  When a mince-pie muncher dies at the local holiday market, it seems she might have to put her hopes on hold.

The victim hadn’t just come to Riddler’s Edge to enjoy the festivities.  He had come to see Dylan Quinn, but what they don’t know, is why.

When another man dies – a man who worked for the same, mysterious company as the first victim – it seems clear that there’s a connection.

On the surface of things, these deaths seem like accidents.  Aisling really hopes that they are, because right now, she has other problems – as she works to free her parents, it seems that someone might be trying to scupper her plans.

There’s a lot to overcome if Aisling is ever going to have her perfect Christmas.  But someone as stubborn as her ought to be able to manage it all.  Right?

New Release: Riddler’s Edge Book Four

Shiver Me Witches (Riddler’s Edge Book Four) is now ready to download on Amazon.  I love Halloween, so I had an especially good time writing this one.  I  hope you all enjoy it 🙂

 

The Blurb:

It’s Halloween in Riddler’s Edge, and everyone is having a wonderful time. So wonderful that they don’t seem to care when two women are murdered on Pirates’ Pier.

There’s a strange new magic affecting everyone. Everyone, that is, except Aisling Smith. But without the help of her friends, will she be able to find the killer in time?

Dealing with murder, magically-altered friends, and a fair few ghosts and pirates is going to make for a busy Halloween. But even if Aisling gets through all of that, there will be one more mystery left to solve. A mystery that means more to her than anything.

Will she finally discover what happened to her parents?

It’s available in all Amazon stores, and is free via Kindle Unlimited.  Here are the store links:

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Three

Phew! I say ‘Phew!’ because, as anyone who read my previous post will know,  there was a weird Amazon technical glitch with this one.  But the season of the glitch is over, and the season of the witch has arrived!  Lucky Witches is now 100% alive, kicking, and ready to  be read 🙂

The cover is now showing up on the product page, so I’m very happy to be able to list the store links at the end of this post.

 

Lucky Witches Book Cover ImageHere’s the blurb:

Just because Detective Quinn is on holiday does not mean that the rest of Riddler’s Edge gets to take a break.

And it definitely doesn’t mean that Aisling misses him.

But even if she did miss him – ever so slightly, mind you – she has far more urgent things to worry about.  Like the fact that every single person the detective asked to look after his lighthouse has met with an unfortunate accident.  Or the fact that a mysterious casino has appeared overnight – and instead of winning money, the gamblers are winning wishes.

These wishes are not all they seem, and as violence and chaos break out, it’s becoming ever more likely that the detective’s lighthouse is keeping a secret of its own …

Heads-Up Regarding Riddler’s Edge Book Three

Lucky Witches Book Cover ImageHi Everyone,

Some of you might have noticed that Lucky Witches has already been released. If so, you might be wondering why I haven’t yet posted here to let you know.  Well, there is a reason, and it’s not even remotely frustrating. Ahem.

The book was published on June 27th. But for some reason, the cover seems to have gotten lost in Amazon Glitch Limbo Land. The book and its cover were both uploaded, and the book is live and available to purchase except that if you do … I don’t know if you’re going to get a cover with it.

I don’t know the reason for the glitch.  It hasn’t been explained to me by Amazon. All I know is that the problem is on their end, and there’s nothing I can do except wait for them to fix it. I can’t even tell you if the cover is simply missing from the store, or if it will also be missing if you download it. I haven’t received detailed information.

So I’ve been waiting patiently and holding off posting until the issue is sorted, or until I have clarification of what the issue is, because I don’t want you buying the book if there’s a chance that your download will be missing the cover. I also didn’t want to bore you with the reasons behind the delay. I was simply going to wait until the issue was sorted and say, ‘Yay, new book out now, go download it and enjoy!’

But that was when I believed it’d be a quick fix.  Time is dragging on, and I’ve now been told by Amazon that the issue may not be fixed until July 5th, So I thought I’d better let you know in case you’re:

A: Seeing my book without a cover on Amazon and wondering what the heck is going on

or:

B: Thinking that I’ve been dumb enough to upload a book with no cover, and have therefore lost all faith in me as a writer and a human being.

As I said above, I don’t actually know for sure if the cover is only a non-show on the product page, or if it’s absent when you download it also.  So if any of you guys have downloaded it and there hasn’t been a cover with it, I’ve asked Amazon to make sure to push updates to Kindles as soon as they’ve fixed the problem. If any of you have downloaded it via Kindle Unlimited, then I hope you’ve enjoyed the read 🙂

I’ll post store links to the book as soon as Amazon have correctly added the cover.
