Tonight I received an email from Tiffany D. and she told me she finished reading The Howling Heart. She loved the story and I’m happy to announce that she plans to create a fanvideo for it. For those of you not familiar with Tiffany, she’s a talented video editor from Australia and very popular on YouTube for her Twilight fanvideos. She also created an amazing and realistic trailer for A Rose to the Fallen. She told me she has three weeks left of college and then she’ll start working on the video. I’m so excited and I’m highly anticipating it! Tiffany already created a beautiful video about Tristan & Bridget. I can’t wait to see what her imagination creates for Riley & Paige.
Today I received a review for A Rose to the Fallen from Alicia at Shooting Stars Mag. She liked the book and gave it 4 out of 5 stars. I’m so glad she emphasized the fact that my book is Adult because some people are under the wrong impression it’s Young Adult.

Until recently, my novels have never been mentioned on news and entertainment websites. It’s cause for a little excitement because it’s nice when someone recognizes my work. Not to mention, I can use the publicity. A Rose to the Fallen was mentioned in an article from Telegraph.co.uk about Toby Hemingway, and The Howling Heart was mentioned on Crushable in an article about Alex Pettyfer. Unfortunately, both articles posted some false information about me. I’m neither a best-selling novelist or an “aspiring young adult novelist”. I could only dream of having a best-seller and I do NOT write Young Adult.
Taylor Swift ‘inseparable’ from British actor Toby Hemingway
Toby Hemingway, the British-born actor, was delighted to be cast as Taylor Swift’s bridegroom in the pop video for the American singer’s latest release, Mine.
So convincing was Hemingway, 24, who has appeared in the television series CSI: Miami as well as the forthcoming film Black Swan, that he is said to have now won over the singer, 20. “They have been inseparable since filming,” says my man in New York.
The dashing actor was born in Brighton but moved to California with his mother, the author Annamaria Hemingway, when he was 13.
This is not the first time that Hemingway has proved stimulating. April Bostic, the bestselling novelist, said he was the inspiration for her book A Rose to the Fallen.
Swift’s spokesman says: “We don’t comment on Taylor’s personal life.”
I just received a wonderful review for A Rose to the Fallen from Raven at VampireBooks.ca. You can read her full review on the Reviews page by clicking the link next to the quote. She gave my book 5 fangs out of 5 and said she hopes the book is made into a movie. That makes two of us. I want to thank Raven for taking the time to read and review A Rose to the Fallen. I’m so happy she enjoyed Tristan & Bridget’s love story.
I appreciate when people take the time to make things for my stories. That’s why I like to showcase fanmade work. It’s a good feeling to know I’ve inspired readers to make videos, wallpapers, a Facebook group, write fanfiction and song lyrics. Today I’m happy to share a piece of poetry. ‘One Heart’ is the first and only poem about my characters Tristan & Bridget that anyone has sent me. It was written by a young woman named Britt who I’ve known for a long time. Her poem was first showcased a few years ago on my old Toby Hemingway fanfiction website. I spoke to her recently and she was kind enough to remind me about it. The artwork was designed by an old LiveJournal friend of mine named Mystik Rose.
I wanted to make a post about some things coming down the pike. I’m anticipating two reviews for A Rose to the Fallen. I spoke to each of the reviewers and I think their reviews will be positive so I’ll be posting them here. The most exciting news I want to share is that Tiffany D. is currently reading my second novel The Howling Heart and she might create a mock trailer for it. I spoke to her recently and she’s enjoying the story so far. Tiffany did an amazing job on her mock trailer for A Rose to the Fallen and I can just imagine what she’d create for The Howling Heart. Stay tuned!
