Blurb

Legend tells that deep in the Land of Cambria, in the heart of the Magical Forest, a tiny race of enchanted beings, no bigger than a butterfly, still call the forest their home. Hidden away from the prying eyes of humans, these magical fairies keep their magic a secret from those who would use it for evil. Yet after thousands of years in hiding, the secret of the fairies is about to come out…
For young Raine, being a princess of the Magical Forest means duty before desire, and her fate to marry a fairy of her father’s choosing becomes a bit more complicated when she accidentally falls for Bryce—a human. In a desperate plea to be with the man she loves, Raine seeks the aid of Vitra, the Dragon Queen of the Dark Forest, in order to become a human and catch Bryce’s eye.
Blinded by true love and guided by destiny, Raine’s journey will jeopardize those she is sworn to protect and leave the fate of the Magical Forest to the evil forces at play. Can she save her kingdom from darkness? Or will she give up her heart’s true desire in order to realize her destiny?

Excerpt

You’ve heard the stories Cinderella, Snow White, The Princess and the Pea, and stories with many other fairy tale princesses. But this is the story of Raine, Princess of the Magical Forest in the land of Cambria, and how she became a real girl … well, almost.

At one time, fairies were tiny creatures, hardly ever seen by humans, and would go easily unnoticed. In fact, they were often mistaken as butterflies in the land of Cambria. But upon closer examination, one could see that they weren’t butterflies at all, but beautiful ladies and handsome gentlemen with lovely wings of many colors. Some had wings of white, others of red, blue, and green … just about every color of the rainbow was represented within the fairy community. But Raine’s wings were special; different from all other fairies. They shone iridescent in the sunlight, appearing in soft shades of pink at times and pale purple at other times, depending upon her mood. Her wings complemented her golden blonde hair, and iridescent fairy dust brushed across her pale cheeks. She was the royal princess, and her wings were special … almost as special as she.

Raine loved spending her time in the forest, hidden by man. Long ago in Cambria, before Raine’s time, men had captured fairies and forced them to use their magical abilities for their own selfish needs or wants. So, the fairies took to the Magical Forest and made their home there, safe and secure, hidden from the prying eyes of man.

Most fairies were afraid of humans—having heard the stories of their cruelty over the years—and stayed hidden deep in the forest. Sometimes, a human or two would catch a fleeting glimpse of what they thought to be a fairy, but the magical creature would fly off quickly, leaving the human to wonder if they had really seen a fairy or if their eyes were playing tricks on them. Usually, the humans vowed to have their eyes checked and then journeyed on their way, no more the wiser of what lay hidden in the depths of the Magical Forest.

But Raine wasn’t like other fairies; she was curious.

Have you met Laverne?

Some of you may know Laverne Debussy-Smith, fashion designer extraordinaire. I had the pleasure of meeting up with her recently for a short interview. She was on her way to Frankfurt for a fashion show.

ctb-pic-1

Me: Thank you for meeting with me Laverne. I love your shoes!

Laverne nods head regally, but she has a wicked sparkle in her eye.

“Thank you, chicken. I’m rather partial to them myself. They’ve been used in some interesting…positions.”

Laverne winks at me and I feel myself flush.

Wonderful, let’s get started on the questions then.

collage-6

Me: As a businesswoman could you ever see yourself taking over Alan Sugar’s role on The Apprentice?

Laverne: Oh, my God, no. That man is one nasty piece of work and I have no intention of aspiring to be such an a-hole. However, give me a bevy of naked men parading around trying to sell me their new business ideas on fashion and I might consider having my own show. ‘Laverne Does Britain’, how’s that for a title?

Have you and Brook had any more moments like that backstage at Club Delish?

Laverne fans herself but that naughty twinkle in her eyes is still there.

“How on earth did you hear about that -were there hidden cameras in that damn room? I wouldn’t put it past that cheeky Ryan to have those to record his own dalliances in there with the delicious Mango. I’d pay to see those snippets…but darling, don’t you know a lady never kisses and tells?” 

She blows a kiss at me, like Marilyn Munro. I feel oddly privileged to have been treated to one of them.lenny_laverne

Me: Have you met Brook’s parents yet?

Oh God, yes. It was the most nerve wracking experience of my life. I was throwing up for two days before we went there. I shouldn’t have worried. Dianne and Harry were absolutely charming and I can see where Brook gets his poise and good looks from. I made a bit of a fool myself over the snacks but then I’m used to ribs in a bucket, not that fancy cuisine they like to serve. 

What is the best piece of advice Leslie has ever given to you?

“Ahh, my favourite little chicken. “ Laverne sighs fondly. “He told me to get my head out of my arse and consider following the path of true love.” Laverne grins. “That wasn’t quite how it turned out, from my side anyway, but it all worked out for the best. Of course, that meeting in my office added five years onto my life, it was one of the most surreal experiences ever. And I’ve had a few of those.”

 Do you have any New Year’s resolutions for 2017?

Laverne rolls her eyes. “Sweetheart, no one sticks to those bloody things. The minute the first week of January is over, if not sooner, everyone goes back to their old tricks and all good intentions are forgotten” She smirks. “And I’m not one for good intentions. I prefer the bad kind.”

 I want to curtsy as she stands up to leave to catch her plane. I close off the interview with a handshake and a sniff of Laverne’s entrancing perfume

Well, as always, it’s been a pleasure. Thanks so much for coming down and answering my questions. And do pass my regards onto Leslie and Oliver. Tell them I’ll be in touch soon.

A top rated and insightful Review by Amos Lassen
I believe that the most beautiful love exists when two lovers are also best friends. Nate and Cody share a friendship that began when they were children. They always had felt that they belonged together and after a weekend in Florida when they were teens, they understood that they were destined to be together forever. However for whatever reason, Nate stopped that. Nonetheless, their friendship did not suffer as a result, they stayed best friends with each going his own way and each found his own partner. They still lust after each other but secretly and when a tragic event occurs, they feel something is missing. Whatever had stopped the physical love that they once shared, hurt the two in ways only that they could know.
After a tragic automobile accident, Nate becomes blind and he knows that his life will never again be what it once was. Cody, his best friend has always felt great love for Nate but never really knew that Nate felt the same for him. Our story is told through the eyes of blind Nate and let me deviate from my review to add something personal here. I have a very close blind friend who has taught me so much about life as “seen through her eyes”. She feels things that I have always thought I was incapable of doing but I learned as I listened to and watched her.
The lives of the unsighted are very different from our own and I certainly feel so much better because I can experience blindness through her. She has opened me to look at those with physical and mental disabilities differently than I ever have before. Putting myself in Nate’s place was not that difficult for me because of this and I can tell you that author MacNichol has done an incredible job with Nate. I know the frustration that comes along with blindness and the very way that Nate deals with rejecting his sighted boyfriend shows this beautifully. We see that even though he is blind, his artistry remains and he maintains the ability to create beauty with the pottery he makes.
I feel myself wanting to say more about the plot but I am forcing restraint so as not to write any spoilers. This is a beautiful book and I want everyone to share in its beauty without my giving something away. I know that it is sometimes hard to see the forest because of the trees often is a true statement and it certainly is true for Nate and Cody.

Sometimes we don’t see love coming

In a gripping tale of lovers fighting against the odds

and finally finding what is real and true.

sight-unseen-wrap-240

BLURB

Tragedy brings together a reserved but brilliant sculptor and an outgoing gallery owner, friends whose love was sidetracked but was always meant to be deeper.

BLINDSIDED

SoCal natives, Nate and Cody have been friends since childhood. Both knew they were different—and the same. At seventeen, a stolen weekend in the Florida Keys drove their connection deeper and hotter than either could imagine. They were meant to be together. Then, for reasons only Nate knows, suddenly they weren’t.

They’re still friends. Best friends. But they’ve moved on and found other partners. The yearning remains, however, despite the long-ago secret that drove them apart, when tragedy strikes, both men find themselves in the dark. They must grope their way back to who and what they are…which they will find in each other’s arms. Sometimes, losing one’s sight can open one’s eyes—and heart.

Nachos and Hash Blog Tour with Brandon Witt

blog-tour

I am delighted to host Brandon on his blog tour for Nachos and Hash. I’ve read it and loved every minute. I will be posting a review shortly, I simply didn’t have the time to prepare it in time for today, more’s the pity. It’s a five star read anyway.

Brandon did a lovely post below, where you can read all about this book and how it started. Before we start, though, I know Brandon loves his corgis so these pictures are for him. Aren’t they the cutest.

about-this-book

 
 
 

Nachos & Hash, and the entire novella series of Mary’s Boys is a different sort of project for me.  First, it’s novellas.  Second, they are the most strictly romantic stories I’ve written.  Obviously, I’ve written a lot of romances by this point, but there are always other storylines going on within the romance, at times even taking center stage over the romance.  With these stories, the romance is front and center at all times.

Because of this, we also wanted to play with the covers. Due to it being Hamburger Mary’s, it needed to be loud, fun, and over-the-top.  I specifically asked for glitter.  It also needed to be a little bit more romantic than my typical covers.

For this collaboration, AngstyG drew the short straw in getting to design the covers for me.  She was wonderful, even though I had to keep telling her how sorry I was that I kept asking for changes.  She was so patient that you’d think she was auditioning to be my boyfriend.   Literally, down to the capitol letters, I was like, can we try this now? And every time, she did.  She is my hero for the Mary’s Boys series.

Personally, I LOVE behind the scenes stuff, on nearly any topic.  I love seeing how things came to be.  So, I thought you might like to see the evolution of the Nachos & Hash cover.  The danger of this is you might like some of the early versions better.  But that’s okay.  You can pretend the one you like is the actual cover.

  1. Notice Cody’s ear. He’s not written with ear plugs, but when I saw the first version of the cover, I totally wished I could go back and write them in.  Cody would TOTALLY get ear plugs.  They fit him.  Alas, the cover comes at the end of edits.  But, from now on, I will see Cody with the plugs, in my mind.  But, I’m just amazed how seamlessly Agnsty G took care of the issues.  Cover artists are magic, I’m telling you!

One random person who comments will receive a $5 Amazon gift card!

Brandon Witt’s outlook on life is greatly impacted by his first eighteen years of growing up gay in a small town in the Ozarks, as well as fifteen years as a counselor and special education teacher for students with severe emotional disabilities. Add to that his obsession with corgis and mermaids, then factor in an unhealthy love affair with cheeseburgers, and you realize that with all those issues, he’s got plenty to write about….

Hey 2017!! I’m over here.

So the New Year has arrived with a shy kiss and a gentle caress. It’s the start of something fresh, new beginnings that let us plan and decide how our future may look. I for one have a lot planned this year and I mean to make the most of it. Top of my list though (no, not a New Year’s Resolution, as I don’t believe in those, this is more my To Do list) is getting back into writing. You may not have known this, but the last year to eighteen months has been tough for me.  There’s been an insecure demon sitting on my shoulder who has led me down a dark path and made me doubt myself and my abilities to bring stories into the world.

skeleton-192305_960_720

And I still don’t know why. I simply lost my passion for my craft and that in itself triggered a huge backlash, a sense of failure which fed on my own insecurities. 2017 is my chance to get back that writing passion and try and immerse myself once again in words.

And boy, 2017 is looking like a great year for me.  So without further ado, let me tell you a bit about it.

Firstly, Sight Unseen comes out for release on January 26th. This book is the result of a partnership between me and my wonderful friend and collaborator, the amazing Nicholas Downs. In life, we are meant to meet people who come to mean something to us. I had no idea when I first interviewed Nicholas for Divine Magazine (at the bequest of the Divine CEO who thought Nicholas was hot and sexy and wanted to feature him) that it would form a lasting relationship that led to us to this point. I mean, you can see why he thought this, right? This is Nicholas. Sigh. The man looks so good in a suit. And a cowboy hat. And a plaid shirt…nicholas_suit_128_web_only

Bottom line, we had respect for each others’ talents – me for writing and Nicholas for acting – and decided we’d create a medium to bring both of these to bear in that of a potential film creation.

Nicholas provided the story line in the screen play he’d already written, I developed it into a novel and together we’re writing the screen play to potentially bring it to the screen. It’s been an amazing journey for both of us, learning about each other’s industries and melding them together to where we are today. And not only are we doing this but -SQUEEE! I get to travel to LA in March next year to attend a conference with my publisher, Boroughs and do a series of book signings with Nicholas, even get to stay with him and his husband Nick for a couple of nights. I am so damned excited. And not only do I get to hob-nob with Nicholas and Nick, I get to meet my publisher for the first time.

Boroughs are quite simply, amazing. They have treated me with absolute respect, compassion on the bad days, and LOVE. Yes, it’s tough to say this about someone you’ve never met but the CEO, Michelle Klayman, has been a rock for me. Not only is she a fantastic editor, making my stories flow better and offering advice and support, but she’s also there when I need to vent or talk to someone. She’s like a big sister, only tougher. Smarter lol. Boroughs’ faith in me when I have floundered myself and had doubts has been heartening and welcome. I am so looking forward to giving Michelle the hug she deserves when I arrive to stay with her at her home with her husband Miguel. Bless him, he even asked her whether he was expected to make me Bubble and Squeak! I told her an emphatic No, I’m in his country now so anything other English food is what I want. Mexican sounds good…

ventura-county-southern-california

I’ll be at the California Dreamin’ Conference and at various other locations in Los Angeles with Nicholas and Michelle but more to follow on the itinerary once we get it all confirmed. And another SQUEE! I’m hoping to catch up with the supremely talented voice over artist and actor Jason Frazier ( we owe each other a drink at Chateau Marmont, it’s a long story…) and *sigh* hoping to finally meet the most awesome and fabulous of writers Cody Kennedy. This particular coming together of souls has been a long time coming.

I’ll be back from the US at the end of the March then jetting off again to Cape Town, RSA to visit family at the beginning of May. The wonderful thing about this holiday is that my whole family is going over, my husband, my kids, and my daughter in law. It’s going to be wonderful seeing my mum and sister again and touching base with my brothers in law.

I’m signing at the fabulous event in Birmingham in July, the ShiMMer Author Event, which promise to be a great day out seeing old friends and readers. If you haven’t already made a plan to attend this, you should. It’s going to be awesome.

shimmer

In August I’m at Brighton Pride with friends and in September, my best pal and author friend John Trevillian and I are off to Dublin for a creative few days, writing, gaining inspiration and drinking wine no doubt.

Oh and did I mention I’m also a trustee for the Being Me Campaign which I’m hoping will see a busy and fruitful year, as well as taking back my old position as Editorial Manager for Divine Magazine, because I really missed this. This particular role has bought with it many opportunities, not least of which was meeting Nicholas.

Heh. Luckily I have a very understanding boss at the day job who simply rolls his eyes and says ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, whatever, Sue. You do what you need to do.’ I’m blessed to be where I am with such lovely people who really care about my ‘other life’ and encourage me. Eunisure, you rock !!

So busy, busy, busy…oops, sorry in all the excitement I forget to tell you about the writing plans. *Facepalms* In between all this I’m co-writing a screenplay, have to finish writing Living on Air, (my ‘circus’ book) and possibly carry on writing the ninth Men of London book as well, Survival Game which is Kyle and Eric’s story from Hard Climate. I have so many other books planned, and some truly exciting ideas and I need to get cracking if I want to bring them all to life. I need lots of coffee and mince pies and a healthy dose of ‘slap me silly when I lose focus’.

unnamed (4)

So that’s me for this year and no doubt there’ll be a lot more happening and I’ll let you know as it does.  To those people who helped and encouraged me over the past years and no doubt will continue to do so because that’s the kind of people they are-  Joanne Swinney, Val Degeorge, Kirsty Bicknell, JP Bilbao, Rita R, Janice Birnie, Petra Andrea, Karen Jones, Anders Rodskar, Isa Jones, Ann Alaskan and myriad of others (forgive me if I haven’t mentioned you specifically but you are legion lol)  who kept me sane and also indulged my girlish passion for Benedict Cumberbatch and Adam Lambert – thank you. You are all the spokes in my wheel without which, there would be no turning and moving forward.

To the bloggers who’ve ever allowed me space on their blogs to promote or share something, you are truly the other wheels of this industry that keep it turning. And to my fellow authors who give so much of themselves in many ways without expecting anything in return- you have my eternal gratitude and appreciation.

May 2017 be everything you want, need and deserve and if I can help you in any way to reach your own goals and dreams, all you have to do is shine this bat signal and I’ll be there.

12 Days of Giveaways Event

 I’m taking part in this wonderful Christmas event. There’s a little something to read, my post about this festive season, plus a giveaway and a special hot bonus scene I wrote a while ago for Saving Alexander.
 1-pictures

So – what’s your idea Christmas gift? I confess I was looking through a list of the most wanted gift ideas and I was a little taken aback. It’s everything from expensive tequila, to virtual reality glasses, a lot of techno geek gifts like Google Home and even a WonderWoof activity monitor for your pet. I must confess I’m a tech-geek myself so anything like this would do for me.

Of course, all I really want for Christmas are some Amazon Gift vouchers. I ask my family every year for these because I buy a lot of books there, and other bits and bobs as well. Yet every year, I get something else. The family don’t think the provision of gift vouchers is a ‘proper’ gift even it’s what I want. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. This year I got a gorgeous Bluetooth radio for my car so I can play my Google and Amazon music library through my speakers. I love my music so this was a combined Christmas and Birthday present (the 28th December) from my lovely husband.

But why ask me what I want and then when I tell you, you buy something else? Sigh. Either way I’m grateful for what I get, even if it means I then spend my own money on buying books the One-Click way, because I simply can’t resist a good story. Yep, we all have the same problem no doubt. One-Click-Aholics indeed.

Hope you get what you want for Christmas and enjoy a fun filled seasonal time with the ones you love.

Susan Mac Nicol is a self-confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self-confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never-Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

Sue is also a PAN member of the Romance Writers of America and a member of their Rainbow chapter as well as a member of the Romantic Novelists Association in the UK.
