I hope you are all well. Back in December I caught a very bad cold virus which set me back about three weeks as I was physically unable to do much in that time. In addition, this was a particularly difficult virus which also threw up an awful lot of emotional and spiritual baggage I've long needed to sort out.
I'm doing that now. But I'm really going through the mill with it (as it were) and my heart hurts quite a lot. You know that feeling when you're really sad, like you have a metal spoon stuck in your heart and you can't pull it out? (Or maybe that's just me, lol.) That's how I'm feeling day-to-day.
If you've been following me and my books long enough, you'll now I'm quite an "emotional writer" (I jokingly call myself a "method writer") - I sink into my characters quite deeply as I write them so I can feel what they feel - that's how I write best. Not usually too much of a problem, but when you add my own stuff I'm already going through to the mix, it makes it all the more difficult to get to grips with writing a woman such as Candace and everything she's dealing with. It's a double whammy of spoon-in-heart, so I need to dial it back a bit.
So, I'm going to push back the publication date of Autumn's Fall to 29th April, although, I hasten to add, I'm going to do my best to get it out to you for around 8th April. The 29th April deadline is a safety net so I don't have to push the date back again if I don't make it.
I apologise that it's not the best news, but I don't want to put a messy book out there - I want to give you a good book. I will give you a good book :)
On another note, there was a bit of talk on my Facebook page a few weeks ago from those of you who might want to know the more spiritual aspects of my life, how it integrates with my books as well as outside of the books, etc. I've been thinking about how to bring this to you. I'm working on a few ideas and how best to share this side of my life, so that may be coming your way soon - no promises, but it's on my mind. If YOU have any more thoughts on this and the things you'd be interested in knowing, feel free to comment as it might help me streamline my thoughts.
That's it for now. Any other more minor updates will be shared on my Facebook page or Reader's Group as and when. You'll see the date for the release of Autumn's Fall begin to change on platforms over the weekend. If you have pre-ordered the book, this does NOT affect your pre-order, you'll just get the book on the new release date, that's all.
Thanks for understanding.

Good morning, everyone! Thank you for all your lovely feedback and reviews for Reign Of The Wolf. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.
This is going to be a short and sweet blog post because I want to get straight to telling you the good stuff!
The website is self-explanatory: here it is! TA-DA!!! Welcome to my new site - a bit more sleek and a little easier to navigate, I hope. Have a browse, let me know what you think.
I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS! It's going to mean more to you if you've finished the Eye Of The Storm series.
As you all know, the Eye Of The Storm has ended now - the story of our four favourite werewolves is done. But others' stories are just beginning. There's the vivacious Layla, and the mysterious Jasmine for starters. I really, really want to write about their future.
However, before I can tell their story, we need to find out exactly how they got to where their story starts. So ... [drumroll] two companion novels are in the works! The companion novels form their own mini-series called Blood Never Lies, but each book stands on its own. The pre-order for these will go live very soon.
The first is called Blood Shadow and tells the story of Jennifer Warren. If you've read to the end of Reign Of The Wolf, you'll know exactly who that is. I couldn't leave her voice unheard; I couldn't leave her with all the shit I'd put her through without a more solid conclusion. Her story is expected to be published in April, 2018 in both eBook and paperback.
The second companion novel is called Aftershock, and belongs to Pete and Claire (and Jasmine). We're going to find out what happened to them over those five years they were away.
SPOILER ALERT: Don't read this blurb if you have not yet finished Reign Of The Wolf!
Aftershock has an expected release date of September, 2018.
Finally, going into 2019, I'll be publishing the third book in the Once Times Thrice series...
And there you have it! Before all of that though, we have the Reign Of The Wolf paperback about to go on sale end of this month, and then the Eye Of The Storm Omnibus Edition planned for end of December.
And it feels so damn good to be busy again :)
I look forward to sharing it all with you.
Love, Dianna xxx
