That’s right…

Only ONE. MONTH. MORE. before DARKLIGHT hits the shelves, people…



*Insert Muppet Arm Flail here*

And – not only the book… but the audio book!!

That’s right – this time around the lovely folks at HarperCollins are releasing the audio-book at the same time as the book-book! Which I think is pretty cool. I’m inclined to think this because I just spent three days (including today) locked again in a tiny padded room talking to myself. And – again! – not for the reasons you would automatically expect!

Anyway, as a result, I’m a little on the giddy side and should not be trusted to type anything sensible. So, I leave you, instead, with a bit of an idea of what DARKLIGHT is all about, and a teeny-tiny sneak-snippet from inside the book to whet your appetite!

In this sequel to WONDROUS STRANGE, Kelley Winslow finds her NYC acting career blossoming as she takes the lead in Romeo and Juliet. But she also finds herself desperately missing Sonny Flannery—who was forced back to the Faerie Otherworld, charged with a dangerous mission by Kelley’s father, King Auberon.

When Kelley finds herself thrown into the Otherworld following a deadly chase in Central Park, her passionate reunion with Sonny is cut short. Ancient magick is stirring, and a dangerous enemy has Sonny and Kelley caught in a web of Faerie deception that could tear their love apart.


In spite of himself, Sonny knelt back down on the grass and glanced into the Faerie queen’s improvised scrying pool. He had no wish to spy on Kelley. Still, he found he could not look away. . . . The wild, dangerous look on Kelley’s face made her look so much like her mother that it gave Sonny a hollow feeling in the pit of his stomach. But not nearly as much as the last, lingering image that flared up in the water—the image of Kelley throwing her arms around another man.

    Hi Laura!

    Thanks for stopping by! If last time is anything to judge by,I don’t think it will be too long a wait before the Italian version is out. Fazi did a fantastic job with getting Wondrous Strange on the shelves in good time (and in a lovely edition!).

    I can’t wait to see how “Darklight” translates! 😀
