Book 2 in the Eternal series is out today.
In the meantime, book 1 in the series, Eternal Island, is still getting amazing reviews.
Here’s today’s: Eternal Island is a place of many magic persuasions and many mysteries. Invisible to anyone not invited, it homes vampires, witches, seers, mind-readers… pretty much any kind of paranormal entity you can imagine. It’s also a place of luxury, without hunger, deprivation, poverty – but a place ruled with the iron fist of Abe, the High Vampire, who dictates a firm-but-fair philosophy.
Abe is foretold of his true love by psychic, Rainey. His true love is Ariana, overwhelmingly desirable to him, but currently in a coma after a breakdown. Her husband died in a tragic accident and the shock caused her a total collapse. But rescued from her hospital bed by Rainey and her witch skills, she agrees to go to the island to meet her `supposed’ soul-mate. And once there, she soon discovers that she is a highly powerful witch with, seemingly, unlimited capabilities.
On her journey of self-discovery, during which her powers gradually manifest in the most unexpected and untimely ways, Ariana is pursued relentlessly by the love-stricken High Vampire. But Abe will have to learn some patience – not something he is used to – because Ariana, despite her irresistible attraction to Abe – is in no rush to jump into a relationship with anybody so soon after losing her husband – especially a vampire!
The story illustrates fascinating aspects of all things magical, all things devious – as we are introduced to the scheming Julia who is determined to seize control of the island – and all things romantic. With a tasteful input of sexual content, emotional roller-coasting, sneaky plans of betrayal and ominous warnings of tragedy, this story will hook you in and draw you effortlessly through the pages. There are some wonderfully drawn secondary characters, and a precise eye by the author for bringing so many characters and events to a neat and exciting conclusion. Recommended. – Gareth K. Stokes
If you’ve followed the trials and tribulations we went through while working on this book, you’ll know we first planned to release it in February. Neither of our schedules allowed it, though, and so we set another date: April 26. We struggled to make it all fit, but it just wasn’t to be, and we had to defer the release once again. We settled for the nearest available Friday, and that happened to be May 10.
Imagine my dismay when I saw an article about the solar eclipse on May 10. I had no idea this was likely to happen. I even asked a friend to search the web and make sure it wasn’t some sort of joke. No joke; the solar eclipse on May 10 will be visible from northern Australia and northern US.
Too much of a coincidence, I thought, cynical soul that I am. I even suspected Kristie may have known about this, as she’s the one who’d set the release date. Nope. She knew nothing about it.
So here’s what we have then: fate has arranged things with surprising accuracy. Either that, or through some lucky coincidence, we’ve managed to publish a book about witches on a solar eclipse. And let’s not forget, book one was published on Halloween (that one planned!).
Now, where did I park my broomstick?

As you know, book one in the Eternal series, Eternal Island, is available now, just in time for Halloween. Eternal Immortality is due out on Valentine’s Day 2013. Just look at the detail in that cover!
Doesn’t it look amazing? Well, yes, of course. I agree. The writing is going well, in case you were asking, and we’ve even given it a home. This is where news about the Eternal Series will be posted.
Once we agree on the final version, I’ll post some excerpts. It is a good story – funny in places, making you think in others. But overall, an entertaining read. Due for release October 31st – yes, there are a few witches and the odd vampire in the mix.
