Release Day!

Short, sweet and to the point... 

IT'S FINALLY HERE! My book child, The Sirens of Falkeld, made its debut in the big wide world today! Three cheers and a WOOT, WOOT HALLELUJAH!! Ebook AND print copies are available on Amazon HERE. Fans of Maggie Stiefvater's The Scorpio Races, and Margo Lanagan's The Brides of Rollrock Island will likely dig this... 

Kade Finley, of the Scottish Isles, was raised on legends of the sea. His Gaffer, Toran Finley said, that beneath Muireall’s wind-swept cliffs, deep under the waves, there lived a legend as old as the Highlands themselves. Of Manannán Mac Lir, the sea god, and his beautiful maighdean mhara, who swam the tides, luring sailors to their deaths. 

But they’re not just legend. 

Kade saw one on his ninth birthday. On that day, a fierce storm swallowed half the island, and his da, Aidan Finley, was never seen again. 

It’s been nine years since Da disappeared, and Gaffer is dying. 

Desperate to save him, Kade decides to capture a maighdean mhara, of whom the stories say will grant one wish if caught. But Admiral Gilbert Owen, commander of the island’s WWII naval base, complicates things. In his quest for power, the Admiral has enraged the maidens, making it dangerous to be human in maighdean mhara infested waters.

Happy reading, dear friends!! 

And now I shall go battle down the hatches and wait for the reviews.... *whimpers*... (no one actually tells you how nerve wracking this is... Just in case you didn't know? IT'S NERVE WRACKING).
