The Amber Antidote – Fly My Pretty!

And like a flying monkey from the windowsill of a wicked witch, The Amber Antidote has been officially released.

Not to torment a young girl and her dog in this instance, but to inspire and excite readers all over the world, ahem…

The Amber Antidote is now available on Pre-Order exclusive to Amazon & will be available on Kindle from the 2nd February 2015.

As it’s a sequel there is simply no better release date – other than if I hung on until the year 2222 and released it at 2:22 and twenty two seconds, but I’m not sure I’d be functioning too well by then…loss of marbles etc…

I will post an update on the release of both paperbacks, which are currently in the proofing stages as soon as my postie decides to call.

The Amber Antidote sees the return of North and Rosie, picking up the story where The Amber Room left off…

Here’s the cover blurb to whet your appetite.


With his sister, India, encased in an amber statue by the vengeful Doctor Tan, North and Rosie follow Javotte’s instruction and head to the GRIMM museum, to seek help from Tan’s old partner, the mysterious, Gumstone.

 Under the guidance and protection of Gumstone, Javotte and The Guardians of Amber, North and Rosie must survive the threat of Tan’s army of Shadows and navigate more dark and sinister fairy tale worlds, in their search for a rare amber antidote that can save India.

 Caught between their loyalties to their loved ones and their mission to stop Tan & destroy The End Book – an ancient artefact that grants its possessor the power of death – Rosie and North must trust in each other if they are to succeed in their quest, but trust is not easy when one of them hides the biggest secret of all…


I’ve been working on a number of writing projects since the release of The Amber Room, but I finally feel I’ve done justice to Antidote and ensured that this would tie in nicely to where I plan to take the story in Book 3 – The Amber Moon.

It now it feels like the story and the bridge it was always meant to be, between where it all began and where I always wanted it to finish.

I’ll be back soon, despite sounding like a polite version of Arnie Schwarzewotsit, with news of the paperback releases and of course with all the links and prices on the release day



The Amber Antidote – Cover Reveal

Hi all,

Bit nippy aint it! In the words of a modern-day, Gollum, It’s taters, precious!

As promised, ahead of the forthcoming release of the follow-up to The Amber Room next month, here is a sneak preview of the front and back covers for The Amber Antidote.

I’m really pleased with it and I hope you like the new styles for the series.

I’ll be in touch very, very, very soon with news of that all important Kindle release date in early February

The paperback versions of both books will also be available soon, more news to follow on those…



The Amber Room – New Cover Reveal

Firstly, put those chocolates down, it’s January people!

Yes, it’s a time to run about, for many, get fit and change all those niggly bits about yourself you don’t like – but it’s  not just people who feel that way and desire a new look…oh no, books love a bit of pampering, so I’ve decided to treat mine…

Ahead of the release of The Amber Antidote, The Amber Room has a new cover.

This cover has been approved for Kindle copies and will also be available soon, via Amazon, in Paperback format. I’ll keep you posted once the proofs have been checked.

I chose this new cover and style for The Amber Room to retain consistency for my Wings, Wands & Weird Worlds series, as book 2 of this series – The Amber Antidote – will be released very soon. More on that to come in my next post.

I’ve also included the back cover image for your perusal and approval. Hope you like the face lifts.
