Never Enough Time

Why is there never enough hours in the day?

Well this morning I went to the car auctions with hubby, had to leave him there as I wasn't feeling well, 5 minutes after I left I received a phone call from my 9 year olds school to say he had an accident and was in sick bay.

Im not one for the whole things happen for a reason, but I am not feeling fine. so wondering if inside I knew something had happened.

Anyway, face into someone else's shoulder is never going to be a good ending. Thankfully there was no blood just a sore nose, sore teeth and gums. Poor kid. He is now dosed up on pain killers and watching TV in bed.

It is a miserable day here at the moment, no rain yet but i'm thinking it isn't too far away..

I started working on some card inserts for the friend who is having her baby shower (the invites I recently made) She has decided they do not want gifts so asked for something to go inside the card to say so. I mentioned to her that I seen something on Pinterest only a few days ago about bringing a book for the baby instead of a present. She loved the idea! So I am now designing the cards to go inside the cards. They are looking good so far but no pictures to show just yet :-)

Time to get on with Mummy duties ... hanging out washing (we have a clothesline under our pergola for days like this) and then a vacuum..then hopefully I can work on these cards :-)

Catch up soon,

Deni x

Dark Deceit - Cover Reveal

My Friend Lauren has just written a new book check out the cover reveal!
It is such a special day for Lauren, it is also her 30th Birthday! So we wish her a wonderful birthday xx




The time of the Aesir gods is over. Now they live among the humans in their bustling modern cities. Their brutal dominion over the gods and humans may have ended, but their actions have not been forgotten.

Korvain is feared like no other. His ruthlessness and cold heart are legendary, but when he is given the task of killing one of the most fabled goddesses of all time, he is left with an undeniable desire to make her his own. Failure in his task means only one thing: death. Will he follow his orders, or will he follow his heart?  

Bryn’s whole world crumbled when she left Odin’s service to protect the other Valkyries. Now living with the humans, she is the only thing standing between them and total destruction. But her beliefs are about to be shaken to the core when she meets Korvaina completely irresistible Mare who threatens to take away more than just her innocence.

 

Dark Deceit Excerpt/Teaser: 

Stepping past one of the only humans she actually liked, Bryn opened up her office door and stopped dead when all the air came rushing out of her lungs.

Korvain was sitting on the edge of her desk, his black eyes glittering in the overhead lights. Although he was sitting down, she could tell he was taller than her by more than just a few inches. His skull-trimmed hair was black, matching his eyes and the dark slashes of his eyebrows.

He was bigger than any other male she had ever seen. His arms were as big as her thighs, crossed tightly across a stomach so well defined the muscles of his abdominals threw their own shadows from under the material of his shirt.

Her eyes took in the breadth of his shoulders, the size of his chest. Bryn swayed suddenly, her hand shooting out to catch the door jamb to keep her balance. Gods, the scent of the male was intoxicating. She had a sudden vision of having his body on hers, pressing into her. She gasped to hide the groan that wanted to push its way free from her throat.

She watched as his eyes seemed to grow darker, his luscious mouth parting in the most seductive way. Bryn shook her head and cleared her throat.

‘Korvain?’

After a long, hot, lingering look, he nodded.

Her eyes slid shut as another flash of them touching intimately assaulted her. Letting out a breath, she pinned him with a look that usually sent most men into hiding. ‘Mind getting your ass off my desk?’ she snapped, stalking past him to sit in her huge leather chair.

 


 

 

With the release date set for July 1st, be sure to enter the giveaway below to get yourself in the running for some awesome Dark Deceit swag!

 


 

About Lauren:

Lauren Dawes is an urban fantasy/paranormal romance writer and the author of the Half Blood Trilogy. You won’t find any friendly vampires in between the pages of her books; just blood, teeth and violence. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or teaching. She currently lives in Victoria, Australia with her husband and cat.

Large Smile

I have such a large smile on my face at the moment, I just found out that I won 5 digital stamps from Kenny K they have such gorgeous digital stamps :-)

I have requested a couple of boy ones to add to my collection and 2 girl ones, I can't wait to get them and play :-)

My friend Jess is coming over today to give her final ok on her baby shower invitations so I can go ahead and make the rest of them for her. She has seen previews so im sure that she will love them.

Trying to get onto a few design teams at the moment, need to get my stuff out there so I can sell a few more cards and things, business is a little slow at the moment which makes it hard when designing
