The great review race!

I am running a month long giveaway. I really wanted some more reviews. Everyone knows that reviews are the lifeblood of an author and I’ve been extremely lucky to have had some awesome reviews already. Theres no beating that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you read one.

I am genuinely touched that people seem to love it. Even if they hate it…it made them feel something, right? 😉

The reason that I have set up this Rafflecopter giveaway the way that I have is to thank the people who have bought and reviewed my book already. I’m grateful for every reader that I’ve already captured, and this is just my way of saying thanks. I don’t want to be one of those authors that only rewards new readers…where would you be without ALL of your readers? Every reader deserves the same amount of attention, past or present.

I’m rewarding buyers past or present with 10 entries. I’m also giving 5 entries to anyone who has already reviewed and giving them the opportunity to spread their review across the platforms available for 5 entries per review. All of these opportunities are available to new readers too!

My book will never be FREE on any platform. I simply believe that it’s far to easy to ‘one-click’ a free book. You’re not investing any time into finding out whether that book is for you by reading the reviews or even reading the blurb. I believe that could result in not so great reviews based on the fact that the reader doesn’t like that kind of book rather than the book is ‘bad’. 

Therefore anyone that wants a FREE copy will have to e-mail me for a copy. I’m even throwing in an entry for requesting it!

Blurb

When Teagan Lewis moves from rural Montana to the bright lights of London with her maker Thomas, she expects to live as harmoniously as she has for the last one hundred-fifty years.

Teagan didn’t know she had a heart or soul until she met Marc Romano.

However, it quickly becomes clear that Marc is forbidden fruit. All the signs that he isn’t human were there from the beginning, but she chose to ignore them…to her peril.

Can she simply walk away from this mesmirising stranger? Or should she risk her immortality to be with the man she has fallen in love with?

Prizes

5 x signed paperbacks – ‘Falling to Pieces’.

6 x $5 Amazon Giftcards (or currency equivalent).

Thats 11 prizes worth a total of almost $80.

Some great reviews

‘This is L.T.Kelly’s Debut Novel and I have to say I’m very impressed, very impressed indeed.

It’s a well written book with a storyline I adored and one I read in one sitting.’

– Passionate About Books. 

‘Just Wow! It is full of sensuality, Sexuality, mystery, and left you sitting at the edge of your seat. I just could not read this book fast enough. I have not read a paranormal romance that good in God knows how long. The chemistry between Marc and Teagan was off the wall.’

– Fictions Our Addiction.

‘They both have this pull and there chemistry is HOT.  Crazy sex with one another and I am completely smitten with Marc.  He is very Alpha but in a controlled manner.  He has a duty to his family and is very torn with his feelings for Teagan.  Did I mention that they have HOT sex?’

-M’s Sinful Reviews. 

‘This book to me should be an over all 60 stars, but the most we can rate a book is 10.  Please go her fan site, blog site and twitter . Contact her find out how you can purchase this book ASAP!!!! Trust me You DON’T. Want. TO. Miss. This. Book.’

-Mousiey Book Reviews 

The main thing I enjoyed about this book was that it wasn’t like every other book that features vampires and werewolves. Instead of a young naive woman falling for the new guy who turns out to be a vampire, the main female character is strong and fights for what she wants, for who she wants. The main male character, Marc is another hot book boyfriend, who you will instantly want to read more about after his introduction into the story. This book has a great storyline with likeable characters and well detailed descriptions, L.T Kelly has done an awesome job and I’m looking forward to reading more of her work.

How negativity can have positive outcomes.

I feel like I can see you, sitting there having read the title of this post and thinking ‘Huh?’

It’s not always a good thing, but I have spent my entire life taking things the wrong way. I take everything personally, or I usually do would be a better way to describe myself. In turn I take every slight on me as a challenge. 

I’m marking today as the day that I’m starting a degree. This is something I’d never have expected that I’d do. These past few years have been full of my own personal set of things I’d never thought I’d do, I have to say I’m very proud of myself.

How has negativity helped me?

As a child I had low expectations of everyone including myself. This was due to things that I shouldn’t have seen or experienced. I took a negative outlook on the world and the people within it. A childhood friend of mines father told me, aged around twelve or thirteen, without hesitation. “Lucy, you’ll be living in a council flat, pregnant at seventeen.”

It was a disgusting thing to say to a child, but if he hadn’t of said that maybe I would have.

I moved schools several times in the pivotal years of my education. I’d just sat my GCSE’s and I knew I hadn’t got any. My mom suggested that maybe I should join the armed services, based on the fact that I was sure I wouldn’t get into college. I was desperate to leave home at that point. My mother and I are so similar that living together wasn’t always great. We now share probably one of the best, open, and honest relationships I’ve ever seen a mother and a daughter have.

Anyway, I didn’t believe I could get into the RAF, I probably wouldn’t have if my uncle didn’t work in the careers office at the time. Nerves were always an issue for my brain performing to it’s optimum.

In turn I got into college and achieved a healthy set of GCSE’s. *face palm*

I was set to go. College was for losers. I was going to the university of life! That I did!

I say that, but the RAF has a great education programme. You sign up and pay for a course and when you complete it they give you 80% of your money back! Three cheers for Lucy!

I took: Accountancy, Law, English Literature and Language, and probably some that I was too drunk to remember signing up for! I only ever completed the English Literature and Language. Considering I didn’t read half of the literature I was lucky that I passed!

I got a reputation for never finishing anything that I started. 

How did I break the habit?

I had my son in October 2008 (see, I could complete a project!) and found out I was pregnant with a girl early in 2010. I always loved cross stitch, but I was terrible at finishing them.

I was excited about having a daughter so I ordered two huge projects and a smaller one for her nursery. I was showing my husband and a friend huge pieces of fabric and talking animatedly about how great the would look. They looked at each other and laughed, “You’ll never finish them, Lucy!” That was probably the reason I did finish them.

That was when life changed for the better.

Obviously, as you start to continually achieve people start to change their minds. Their expectation of you grows into a healthier attitude. 

Now, it’s my own negativity that drives me forward. I wrote ‘Falling to Pieces’ with a mind full of diatribe. I constantly and consistently told myself I couldn’t write a book. I am always filled with self-doubt.

I said I’d never be doing this:

Then when it was out there things changed to ‘No-one will like it. I’ll only get five stars from my friends.’ Maybe thats why I cry every time I get a random review.

You may think this is a very bad attitude to have, but this is what drives me. I aim to blow my own mind with every challenge. When that challenge is complete I allow myself a day to feel happy about it and then move onto the next thing that ‘I can’t do.’ For me this is the only way to live.

So, no, there’s absolutely no way on this god given earth I’ll ever complete my BA (hons) in humanities. In fact I won’t even manage to complete the first section of it.

I hope you’re not waiting for ‘Falling Apart’ because it will never be finished. Plus, what I’ve written so far is a pile of crap anyway. 😉 

This is how I roll 😀
