Celebrating the release of When Darkness Whispers with books and swag! (@lisacbooks)

I’m celebrating my new paranormal romantic suspense release with a giveaway!

Some memories are better left forgotten…

Haunted by an unclear past, biologically enhanced Marine, Eva Montreaux, can’t be distracted from her mission. With American servicemen being brutally murdered on the island of Okinawa, it’s more than priority. It’s critical. But when her investigation brings her face to face with Marcos Delacruz, it triggers memories. Ones she lost. Memories that somehow include him.

Marcos Delacruz has tried to forget the woman who left him with nothing but empty promises. Even now, three years later, Eva doesn’t seem to express any guilt over breaking his heart. In truth, she seems to barely recognize him. This deployment has been challenging enough with too many restless spirits haunting the island. But when his own investigation forces him to cross paths with her once more, Marcos discovers there may be a deeper truth.

With the number of murders climbing rapidly and the rising need to track the murderer across the tropical island, Eva struggles to reclaim what she lost. But the island holds darker elements–a serial killer. One that doesn’t appear to be human.

Thrust into a world she can’t escape, Eva must discover a way to stop a murderer from destroying anyone else’s future, but how can she succeed if she can’t even remember what role Marcos played in her past?

When Darkness Whispers is a unique blend of paranormal and military romance you won’t want to put down! If you like haunting mystery, spine-tingling suspense, and Japanese mythology, you’ll love When Darkness Whispers!

How Long Do You Like It? by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #writerslife

Hi everyone,

So, how long do you like it? Now, now, don’t be rude! 😉 I’m talking about book lengths and word counts here!

As I’m sure most of you know, I write a huge amount of variety. That includes in genre, pairing and book length/word count. I just love to work on different types of projects. Admittedly, I would like to write more full-length books, but that would mean writing fewer short stories and novellas, and I often write those either because I’ve been inspired by a call for submissions, or been specifically invited to a project, which is always lovely. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to take part in all the projects I’d like to, and write all the ideas that pop into my head.

Which brings me back to my question… what word length books do you prefer? I’ve been lucky enough to have a few releases out this year, with more coming, but they’ve all been short stories or novellas. My last full-length novel was (re)released in September of last year, and also a co-authored full-length novel was released in October of last year. I’m currently working on my next one, which I hope to release in the next couple of months.

So please let me know in the comments… what book length do you prefer, and why?

Happy Reading!

How Do You Feel About Pre-Orders? by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985)

Hi everyone,

I have a question for you today… how do you feel about pre-orders on books? I’m not talking about from the author perspective, where if you get enough pre-orders you increase your chances of hitting a bestseller list, etc. I mean as a reader. If you can pre-order a book, will you? Will you click that button and let technology do the rest? Or will you hang on until the book is actually released, or hang on until pay day and get your copy? Does it depend on the price? On the author?

I’m genuinely intrigued by what people think on this topic. With the work I have available and coming up through publishers, of course I have no choice in whether it goes onto pre-order or not. Some publishers do it, others don’t. I guess it depends on how far ahead they work in editing and scheduling new releases.

But when it comes to self-publishing, I quite like having that option there as a backup. I’m the sort of person that likes to plan ahead, get things done. I’m not a last-minute type of person. So if I can get a book completed, edited and ready to upload, I prefer to do so. Then if real life intervenes or something goes wrong, at least I know, through the magic of technology, that the book will release anyway.

It also means there’s more time to fix things if they do happen to go wrong, or if the various retailers are slow in approving books. And it means that purchase links are generally available in plenty of time for release.

So for me, I like pre-order as it makes lots of things easier and less stressful. But what about you? Do you bother with it?

Happy Reading,

Lucy x
