It’s Out! It’s Out, I tell you.

Jingle Spell, my Christmas novella is now out. Today is a special day for me, not only because I publish another title as Chris Ethan, but because it’s also my one year anniversary of being with my fiance, who inspired this book, hence the publication date. Without further ado, here is the final blurb and the Amazon link:

It’s the most horrible time of the year.
Smooches under mistletoes and tacky reindeer decorations. 
Newly single, Davey has had enough of wasting his love and having his heart broken. Better to be single, he decides. No more dates. No more falling in love. No more dreaming of happy ever afters. Those are for movies.
He’s resolute.
And then Avery steps into his life, bringing care, compassion, and tenderness in his path.
Davey’s so tempted to hope again. But can an online date and a brief encounter turn into anything other than an ephemeral sexual encounter?
Is there a future for them? Will Avery stay? And most importantly, can Davey bear to offer up his heart to the season’s love—just one more time?
A sweet romance by Chris Ethan, author of The Guy With The Suitcase.

Cover Reveal and Pre Order Blitz – Sight Unseen

 Cover Reveal & Pre Order Blitz, Sight Unseen by International Bestselling Author Susan Mac Nicol with L.A. producer and Hollywood Actor Nicholas Downs

 COVER REVEAL

Sight Unseen

By Susan Mac Nicol with Nicholas Downs

Sometimes we don’t see love coming

Enjoy your View

sight-unseen

Based on an idea from L.A. producer and actor, Nicholas Downs, Susan and Nicholas have developed a story straight from the heart.

In a gripping tale of lovers fighting against the odds comes a story of universal appeal about rejection and acceptance

and finally finding what is real and true.

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.

Sight Unseen Cover Reveal -Release Day 26th January 2017

I’m really excited today because the project Hollywood actor Nicholas Downs and I have been working on is getting closer to completion. The book is written; the cover is revealed (isn’t it stunning) and in December we start working on the screen play together. I’m nervous. I’ve only ever done a short screen play and I think I need some more practice. Hopefully Nicholas can teach me a few things or two. It’s also my first book set in the US, in Los Angeles so that took some time to get right. Luckily as Nicholas lives there and my editor is a New Yorker living in SoCal, both of them were a tremendous help in getting the details and location right. Boroughs Publishing Group have been instrumental in bringing this book into the world and for that, both Nicholas and I offer our heartfelt thanks. Especially to Michelle Klayman (my editor and confidante) who helped us get to this point, and Chris Keeslar, who, as always, excelled himself at creating the cover.

Anyway here’s the front  cover, and if you scroll down, you’ll see the full wrap as well which is HOT!

I’ve also included the Goodreads link further down where you can add it to your TBR and the universal Amazon buy link. Other links will follow as soon as I have them because I know not everyone shops at Amazon.

Being Me Author Lunch event in London

event-banner

So, what do Susan Mac Nicol, Harper Fox, KC Wells, Sue Brown, Rhys Ethan, Aleksandr Voinov and RJ Scott have in common? Well, the answer is that they’ve all pooled their time and resources for one lucky person and their guest to join them at an intimate lunch event at a cosy, central London restaurant. You’ll both be wined and dined, there will be great goodie bags for you, and each one of these authors will sign a copy of a book you fancy having in your library.

Why are they doing this? One reason is they all love their readers. The other one is a little more serious. Susan Mac Nicol is a trustee for The Being Me Campaign — www.beingmecampaign.com — and this is one of the ways these authors are trying to help Susan raise money for the organisation. Susan’s fellow authors have been incredibly supportive giving her their time and contributing to the event. Ditto for the Being Me Campaign Chairwoman and co- founder, Tracy Shayler, who’ll be joining them at this dinner. So, there’ll be a table for eight set up for them- who will be the other two people who’ll be there for this evening of fun, food and laughter no doubt, and the opportunity to ask us anything you ever wanted to know about them, their books, the genre or the charity?

 dinner-table-1433494_1920

Pictures will be taken and there may even do some live streaming from the event.

For every £5.00 you donate, you are entered into the draw again for the prize. There is only one winner chosen.

The competition is open to anyone all over the world of course because we didn’t want to discriminate. Logic tells us however flying in from abroad for this event might not be feasible. However, that’s your call if you donate* and you win!

We’re sorry that this event is limited to the UK but we didn’t see how we’d be able to facilitate this any other way.

There are some terms and conditions, and you can read them below. Please make sure you read and understand them because the organisers would hate you to be disappointed about anything. If you have any questions, please email susan@beingmecampaign.com

Joandisalovebooks

Bestselling Author Susan Mac Nicol is celebrating one year publication of, Cross to Bare book five in The Men Of London Series. The men of London is Set in the cosmopolitan landscape of the city of London, these are stories of men overcoming the odds to live, learn and find love. Each tale stands alone, offers an intriguing plot line with diverse characters and of course, a HEA.

BLURB

Tough in business but romantic at heart, fashion designer Lenny James isn’t hiding his masculinity behind his super successful female alter ego, but a vulnerability that only handsome financier Brook Hunter will be man enough to reveal…and worship.

TWO OF A KIND

It’s amazing what a little mascara and lipstick, a blonde wig, false boobs, and top-notch female fashion can hide. Not that Lenny James is hiding his masculinity. He uses his normal voice when he’s Laverne, and he’s not particularly…

Characters I’d invite to my Halloween Party

dinner-table-1433494_1920

I was asked recently who I’d invite to a Halloween party if I could invite anyone in the world that I wanted. I gave it a bit of thought and came up with this list.

Stephen King – horror writer. I love his writing, his characters and the fact he lives in Maine. This is one place I’ve always wanted to visit in the US so if I invite him to my party, his innate politeness will dictate he feels obliged to invite me to his place. As long as he pays the bill to get me over there of course. His house looks so spooky and I’d love to sit and shoot the breeze with the man.

I’d insist that Stephen brings Pennywise with him. The clown from IT has to be one of the scariest dudes ever. I have two reasons for inviting this rather malevolent entity to my party. One is that he will scare the crap out of the Neighbourhood kids and I rather like that idea.

clown-1537543_1280As an aside, I think I have this deep rooted desire to feed on people’s fear -a little like old Penny himself. Not to mention the fact that my twenty year old daughter has a bit of a phobia about clowns. I once offered a birthday present to her that she almost had a heart attack over. There’s a gent that dresses like a clown and stalks the birthdayee. (It’s a great word, so stop frowning) The guy hides behind lamp posts, jumps out of dark corners, and generally makes their life miserable as they wonder where he’s going to turn up next. My daughter didn’t like that idea for some reason so letting Pennywise smile at her from across a crowded room while gently fondling a carving knife sounds like a great substitute. (Uhhmm, she doesn’t seem to like that idea either. But who cares. It amuses me.)

So that’s two party goers taken care of. My next guest would be the incredibly talented chef Hannibal Lecter. The young Hannibal is pretty yummy, but Mr. Hopkins would be a delight too. Hannibal is a man of great discernment, witty conversation and he’s remarkably intelligent. He’s dapper, well spoken and honestly, any hostess should be privileged to have him. I’d sit him next to someone I really didn’t like and watch the chemistry between them ignite.  I hope nothing else develops though, like a torn out liver in a state of being flambéed and served with a nice cranberry coulis.

meal-918639_1920

I need a lady guest or two to balance this out. So I say a warm welcome to Nurse Ratched, she from ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.’ Unfortunately she won’t be able to say anything back as her vocal cords were irreparably damaged when Randle McMurphy tried to choke her to death. But I’ll put a pen and notepad at the side of her table setting and she can at least have a conversation that way. She promised she would bring her little black bag of drugs with her in case any of the other guests got out of hand.

And of course no Halloween party would be complete without the loveliness of Bellatrix Lestrade, the loveable, psychotic  pure bred witch and Death Eater from the Harry Potter series. Her  Gothic beauty and her sadistic and violent tendencies, coupled with her narcissistic tendencies would fit in really well with the other dinner guests. She and Hannibal could trade cooking recipes perhaps, while Pennywise could nuzzle her lovely neck with his rather large teeth. Stephen would be sitting observing the character interplay for his next book, and Nurse Ratched would probably be trying to bully and intimidate all the dinner guests. I’m guessing though that this would be quite a feat to achieve…woman-1684113_1920

And of course, there would be me, Hostess Extraordinaire, watching the casual interaction between my dinner guests with a fond smile and a very large gun held in my hand under the table. The weapon would be necessary in case any of the humans decided to turn on me. Of course, I’d need a couple of magic spells, an incantation or two and the Ritual of Chüd. (Google this if you’re not sure what the hell I’m on about and you’ll find out which character it can kill) I would wine and dine these guests, listen avidly to their stories, laugh at their jokes and then set them loose on an unsuspecting public.  After all, it is Halloween. People expect to have the bejesus scared out of them and I think my dinner guests will do this admirably.

I look forward to seeing you all at the next one on the 31st October 2016. Come along and join the fun. I think you’ll enjoy yourselves. Oh, and leave the children at home. Just  in case. You know how IT loves little kiddies.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

On The Boil

I haven’t blogged for a while so I thought it was time to let you all know what’s going on in my writing life right now.

Typewriter

  1. #IAmWriting
  2. #IAmWriting
  3. #IAmPromoting
  4. #IAmOnSocialMedia
  5. #RealLifeIsInterferingwith1234

The story of my life in 5 short hashtags actually. But it’s okay, I love the pressure. I have a lot going on in my writing life at present, which is defined as anything that’s come about through my writing of sexy books. I’m still bowled over by what my life is like now, compared to what is was before 2012, which is when I started writing ‘professionally’. So much has happened and it’s a little dream- like.

I’ve got one book in edits at the moment with my publisher. This story is titled Sight Unseen and it’s a collaboration effort with well-known LA actor Nicholas Downs. He had the original story idea and a screenplay, and I developed it into a novel. The release date for this one is 29 November.  If you fancy participating in the 3-day release blitz click here

The most exciting fact about this book is that it’s been specially written with the idea of turning it into a screen-play in 2017 to get the story to film. Nicholas and I will be writing this together and I’m thrilled with the idea.

You can check out our progress on our Facebook page or on Twitter @SightUnseenPR. Follow us on Instagram @sightunseenla

facebook_1471874837917

Next, I’m working on the ninth Men of London book. It’s called Survival Game and features Kyle Tripper, the quirky Club Delish nightclub manager and ex Las Vegas casino dealer and Eric Kirby, a London paramedic with his own demons. I’m thrilled that I’m being guided by a real life London paramedic as part of my book research. He’s been awesome in telling me everything I need to know and I may even get to go on an observation shift with him to see first-hand how things are done. I’ve been in an ambulance as a patient before so it would be nice simply to be an observer. I’ll keep you posted on that one. I don’t have a release date for this one at the moment.

I’m also trying to finish Living on Air, my rather emotional and dark story set in a circus and featuring a very tormented aerialist. I intend self-publishing this one although another publishing house is interested in it. They can offer me access into book stores so it’s something to think about. Once it’s written, I’ll take stock of the options.

I’ve also written around 40k on a YA/NA fantasy book (I haven’t quite decided exactly which one yet), with two fine questing, coming of age heroes, imaginary worlds, wizards, talking doors, magical fish, and a very nasty villainess who does gross things. I started writing this when I was seventeen and kept it going over the years but never finished it. I really want to though. Perhaps with a fellow writing collaborator? Who knows.

unnamed-65

I have so many plot bunnies on the boil, I’m not sure I’ll manage to do them all. I’d love to write a gritty thriller series featuring Clay and Tate from Feat of Clay. I have an idea for a steam punk, Gothic horror type romance based on a very well know classic horror story. I have another series idea featuring hotels around the world and a lot of intrigue and deception. I’ve also got a rock star book in mind, one with a difference. I just need to be cloned so I can write them all.

As part of my writing, I’ve met some incredible people and got involved with some very worthwhile causes. One of them is me being a charity trustee for the Being Me Campaign –

If you’d like to upload a video for us on what makes you, you, please follow this link for the easy instructions

I think that’s it for now, no doubt the list will grow and I’ll end up needing to run off somewhere, breathe and focus. For now though, I’m trundling along hoping that it all comes to fruition….
