You Had Me at Halo Kindle for 99 cents

 

halo kindle coverJust a reminder that  my debut book You Had Me at Halo is now up on Kindle for 99 cents. I actually wrote this book three weeks after my own father died so it was a strange but therapeutic way for me to deal with his death and explore what might happen next.

Holly Evans has just seen her body laid to rest. Now she would like to move onto the afterlife. But apparently she has some mortal baggage to unload first, starting with the matter of how she died. Her heavenly shrink isn’t buying that she didn’t kill herself and says she must return to earth to straighten things out.

The thing is, she needs to borrow the body of computer geek Vince Murphy to do it. Oh, and although Vince was supposed to have vacated the premise, he apparently never got the memo. Now, Holly has forty-eight hours to resolve her issues while sharing arms, legs, and…other things…with a guy she  barely noticed while she was alive. But the real surprise is what life has to offer when you have only two days to live it.

“It’s The Lovely Bones meets Bridget Jones in this fluffy take on what happens after death…it’s a fun, witty traipse through the afterlife.” Publishers Weekly

“This book has a delightfully quirky concept that develops into a fun and interesting story. Peopled with a fascinating variety of characters, it also has an intriguing mystery and a charmingly different type of interaction between the hero and heroine. Expect a delightful tale with a wonderfully distinctive ending.” 4 1/2 stars Romantic Times Bookclub TOP AUGUST PICK

I’ve just finished the revisions for Sophie’s Mixed-Up Magic book three, and this is definitely my favorite one in the series.

Allison is a fellow Brisbanite and our mothers actually worked together long before either of us had ever thought of being writers (okay, so perhaps Allison had but I was far too busy dreaming of my upcoming wedding to Simon… Read More
