Six Months To Live is Published!

After a very long 10 months, I can now tell you that I have finally published Six Months To Live.

It is currently only available through lulu.com but will soon be available to purchase worldwide through Amazon and other online retailers, followed by a Kindle edition. It has been quoted as “An Exciting and Intense Thriller. Hold On To Your Hats For A Rollercoaster Ride.” Please see below for the link to my distributors website for viewing or purchasing.

I have been working very closely with the rest of Tactanium Publications to get this finished and would like to say a massive thank you to my proof readers, Di Davies and Daniel Pelling, whom without their advice and guidance it wouldn’t have been possible to get it finished.

My next project will be the long awaited Death on the Shop Floor (title pending review), which I know Di is very excited about and can’t wait to get her proof-reading skills into.

After that, the opportunities are endless as there are plenty of other ideas floating around waiting to be started on.

Don’t forget you can still get the following publications from Amazon…

The Forensic Killer

The Ghost Writer

Words Don’t Come Easy

Thank you to all for your continued support and I hope that my future endevours will continue to please you as much as the ones up until now have done.

Take Care,

What Else Can Go Wrong? Troubles with pain.

Hi Guys,

Me again in a very rare two blog posts in one day situation. Thank you for your lovely comments about Help For Heroes, so many have come in I will go through them and post the best ones in due time. Update there is I’m expecting a phone call today from Lizzy at H4H to find out what else I can do to help so will keep you informed as that progresses.

A lot of you have been interesting in my condition, Ankylosing Spondylitis and how I’m getting on with that. To be honest, every day is a struggle, and some days it gets so painful I have difficulty in moving. Which sucks really considering moving is part of the pain management, but how can you pain manage something that causes pain? Bit confused there really. The problem with being pregnant (apart from the sleepless nights of money worries) is that my rheumatologist can’t prescribe me with any steroids or anti inflammatory drugs to help take the pain away. All I can take is bog standard paracetamol which doesn’t do a thing, but they say keep on taking them, so I’m going through 8 pills a day for no reason in my opinion, the only thing it helps to ease is the constant headaches I get.

I’ve taken another blow today though after my trip to see my physiotherapist, Elaine, I also have a condition called trochanteric bursitis, otherwise known as trochanteric pain syndrome. Again all I can do is try and manage the pain with paracetamol and movement. Though this is extremely painful in my hips to do this and putting any weight on my left leg is excruciating. Sleeping is difficult as I have trouble laying on either side and because of the AS trying to lie on my back is just as bad. I can’t win really. My next appointment with Elaine is in three weeks time so we’ll see how I progress and then see what else she can find wrong with me. What makes me worry more about having Ankylosing Spondylitis is that it is incurable and will get worse as time progresses, eventually leading to fusing of my spine rendering me, well, I hate to think really, but useless is the word that comes to mind right now. The two bottom discs have already started that process as revealed in my isotope bone scan I had in January this year.

January wasn’t the greatest start to the year it has to be said, I found out I had this degenerative disease, got made redundant and found out I was pregnant. All in one week! Talk about everything happening at once.

So what good things do I have going for me people ask, that’s my burning question too really. However, Six Months to Live is finally nearing completion and just needs a few tweeks here and there then I can move on to my next project Murder On The Shop Floor, which’ll please my ex colleagues at Patrol Store who I’m still good friends with as its based on them 🙂 Not forgetting that The Ghost Writer, The Forensic Killer and Words Don’t Come Easy are all available to purchase on Lulu as well as being on Amazon and other online retailers so although I don’t generate any revenue from them at the moment, the potential is there (hopefully), just need to work on marketing them a bit I guess, although its nice that I’ve already got a little fan base boosting my ego every now and then, without letting it go to my head.

Elvis Presley has become my inspiration while writing recently, as well as my Red Bull Racing F1 “thinking” cap! It may not give me wings but certainly can make the words fly 🙂 I have my dad to thank for my love of The King of Rock N Roll as he always used to listen to it when I was growing up and I plan to carry on that tradition with this little munchkin when he or she arrives. At 27 weeks now so getting there.

Anyway, speaking of writing I shall get cracking on that and wait for my phone call from Help For Heroes.

Until my next blog, I bid you farewell and good luck in whatever path you choose to follow.

TC,

Liane

Future Stories

Having just published The Forensic Killer and a second edition of The Ghost Writer (featuring a ghostly cover and extra chapter that’s guaranteed to make you cry), I am now pleased to say I am busy working on with my next idea. The working title is, Six Months To Live, but the way the plot lines are going it will more than likely still be called that.

Not wanting to give too much away I can tell you that it is mainly set in Kendal, Cumbria and venturing into Windermere. It is an exciting, edge of your seat thriller that, as with all my stories, will keep you guessing right until the end. If there is one thing I am good at it’s twisty tales!

Should have this done within the next couple of months if not sooner as I have a solid background story ready to get cracking on.

Will keep you posted on future develoments.

Thanx for your support guys! Love to all and peace to the world. Especially in recent times with unnecessary riots and thoughtless killings.

The Forensic Killer (Update – Published)

After months of writing, I have finally finished The Forensic Killer.

It was published last night courtesy of www.lulu.com and is available for retail purchase at £12.99 through their website.

 Compared to The Ghost Writer, this is in no means a short story as it is 173 pages, though not quite a novel it is still an acheivement none the less.

I have ordered my proof-read copy and once it has been approved it shall be available on Amazon and most other major online bookstores within 6-8 weeks. So, happy days basically.

I have to say a big thank you to my two proof readers, Daniel Pelling and Diana Davies who helped with any gramatical errors, spelling and other suggestions etc in order to get it ready for publication. And a big thank you to Sam Pelling for editting the photo for the front cover for me.

I’ll let you know when it has been published on Amazon.

Thanks to everyone for your support.

New Ideas

Hey guys!

Crikey, has it really been this long since I’ve blogged? Jeez, where is the time going?!? Anyhow, seeing as The Forensic Killer is a “working progress” i.e. I only have time to write it on a Monday night for an hour or so I’ve been thinking of fresh ideas for future publications. I know there is a few people out there keen to read my current one and I’m sorry that it’s taking longer than I thought but distractions and alone time are few and far between but I can promise you it will be worth the wait.

Anyhow, “new ideas…helloooo? What’s this all about?” I hear you question! Well, forget poetry…as it stands at the moment I can’t string two words together and have them make sense (neeeed sleeeeep!) and this pad I carry everywhere with me has got so many random bits of text in there I’m struggling to put them into sentences let alone paragraphs and god forbid those things called pages! So my current list of future titles is as follows…

  • The Copycat Killer
  • The Devil’s Child 
  • Ghost in the Machine
  • The Network
  • Curse of the Fairground

So, something to look forward to then…all I have to do is write them!

Don’t forget you can purchase a copy of The Ghost Writer on Amazon

Until we blog again!

What is the latest story about?

I was asked that question today by my publishing company. My answer was The Forensic Killer is about a killer who is proficient in forensics. Based in California with great characters and a bigger “Oh my god i didnt see that coming moment!” it’ll be better than The Ghost Writer! They said they can’t wait and if it’s anything like my first attempt then I’m on to a great career. Gee thanks lulu.com, you guys say the nicest things!
Things couldn’t be better. Amazing boyfriend, great future, awesome friends…I love my life!

Happy Valentines Day everyone, I hope you’re all having a wonderful time with loved ones…I know I will…

The Forensic Killer

Well while my gorgeous, lovely boyfriend Daniel Pelling was busy practicing with his awesome bell team I sat scribbling in the corner as I penned the synopsis, main character bios, plot and final twist. I’m very excited at the idea of it; now I just need to turn it into a story. Big thanx to Di Davies for the use of the shorthand notepad as it came in very handy last night…laptops?pah! Good ol’ fashioned pen and paper was all I needed and I will carry it with me everywhere as I guard the secret to The Forensic Killer with my life. I’ve already got pre-orders based on The Ghost Writer so I hope this one lives up to everyone’s expectations.
Thanx guys!

Exciting new story coming soon…

My first book has been published…how exciting! It’s available for £9.99 through www.lulu.com .

Anyway, here is a brief synopsis of The Ghost Writer. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. And thanks to my awesome niece, Becky Joyce, who I will employ as my editor one day! Giving my first autograph yesterday was really cool and something I could get used to (lol, thanks Kat!).

Jack Somerfield is tired of his mediocre life and is fed up with his job. He has been ghost writing for other people and is desperate to make a name for himself but lacks the confidence to do so. Deciding to emigrate to Canada from London to be with his girlfriend and closer to his publisher. When he arrives he settles in quickly but struggles to come up with ideas for a story. Eventually the writer’s block is lifted and Jack really gets stuck into it; working all day and all night. His life is taking a turn in the right direction and he begins to get excited about his new project and the opportunities it could bring. His publisher has always been supportive, as has his girlfriend Lisa. Jack was finally believing in himself. He knew things would be different from now on, he just didn’t realise how different things would be. The lack of sleep was catching up with Jack and was affecting his relationship with Lisa. Then one fateful day, while driving back from town, Jack’s life would never be the same again…
