Pick of the week

I am honoured that my new release Abigail Cottage has been named Pick of the week by thriller writer Lorrie Struiff

Check it out!!

Abigail Cottage

When Abigail falls in love with Justin she can’t begin to know the world of hurt she is heading into. Gorgeous, kind, rich – he’s the man we all dream to meet. BUT, all is not what it seems because Justin is a true demon from hell, disguised as a mortal being. He wants her and will do, kill or maim anyone who tries to stop him. Namely Shaun the real hero, who wants Abigail more! So what does a mortal man do against a demon? He enlists the help of a gypsy of course. But not any old gypsy. Rosa knows Justin very well and has the powers of the spirit world on her side to fight him. Using crystals as a powerful weapon, the light of the spirit world to lead them, they embark on a battle with the whole of the underworld. Many loved ones will lose their lives. This isn’t a book where everyone survives. In real life, bad things happen. In Abigail Cottage, terrible tragedies occur too. Believe... not every story can have a happy ending.

  1. I'll be answering any questions you have here today and tomorrow, so please ask away...

  2. Hi Ami
    Do i need to buy all these books to understand the story or does each book stand alone?
    PS Hi mags. great post.

  3. Good Acfternoon ami
    It says on your website to read your books chronalogically, so am I right in thinking each one needs to be read to get the gist of the story?
    I do rather like your website.

    Mags, what do you suggest? have you read any of these books?

  4. I enjoyed the post mags. Off to check out ami's website. A girl in my office just ran to her computer to look too lol
    Hello Ami. Great books/post

  5. I'd be interested in hearing about the plot and the characters, as well as the proper way to read the books in order to get the most out of them. Which came first for you - the plot or the characters. And what was your influence for this series?

  6. Love Ami's Shifters Books have had the great pleasure of reviewing 2 of them in the past and have no doubt this one will be just as good. Personally from the ones I've read they do stand alone as novels... but I can pretty much guarentee where ever you jump into this series you'll want to read the rest of them anyway lol x

  7. Hi sissy, Peggy, I have not read them, but Ami is a fabbo writer and her paranormals always stand out from the crowd. Let us know what you think of it if you buy one.
    Hi Lucy, thanks everyone for your 'love' lol

  8. Peggy- You don't have to buy them all. They each stand alone, except Hybrids. Hybrids should be read AFTER Shifters. Other than that, you may read what you want ...I recommend Shifters, Hybrids, and then you choose the past or the future

  9. Sissy- please see my answer for Peggy. The website actually says you can begin in the middle with Shifters, or read them chronologically. But you may actually read them in any order.

  10. Julie- What came first. Good Question . I saw April and Arquet first while tending to my garden teaching in Thailand. My Siamese cat jumped around on the trees and a vision came to my mind of humans who could shift into cats. I worked on that concept a bit more and the story was born...and then the story and other characters developed as I wrote.

    the proper way to read the series is one: chronologically OR two: Begin with Shifters first and then Hybrids and then choose the past or future.

    I wrote the middle first and then the beginning and now I am working on the ending. But each book can stand alone, except Hybrids.

  11. This release of the first book in the series, The Invasion of 2020, will allow readers to engage the series chronologically as well.
