So it’s been a week since Leeds, we can’t quite believe it’s all over!

After all the months of planning, chatting and being part of the fabulous Leeds family we had an epic time with you all last Friday and Saturday.
It was pleasure to finally meet each and every one of you, authors , readers, bloggers and supporters.
Thank you , thank you for making Leeds the most amazing couple of days for us.
We have been amazed and truly humbled by all the lovely messages , posts and tags we have received . We are just pleased it was a successful weekend for you all.

We are changing the Leeds group to an Hourglass group so you can keep up with our plans as they evolve plus we have had lots of laughs chatting with you and don’t want to lose that!
We love what we have been doing as Hourglass and we can’t wait for the next chapter to unfold in the form of the Darker Side of Fiction 2017! Although there will be other plans and events along the 😉
Look forward to the next time we meet.
Love Rachel and Jo xxxx

We would like to welcome Hazel Robinson to the Leeds signing!

12376280_725844384182715_6500119734426142319_n

Hazel is the UK author of ‘The True Love Series’ book 1 Something Missing is available.

I published my first novel ‘Something Missing’ with Little Bird Publishing House on May 30th 2014. I also founded After The Scars – A Second Chances Anthology. A charity anthology with myself and 9 other writers
Favourite Books
Take this regret , lost to you, when we collide, pulled, 50 shades series, night world, dark heroines, hush hush series, fallen series and too many more to mention.
I’ve always had a passion for reading but over the last several years it has become an obsession, a few months ago I decided to put fingers to keys( or pen to paper!!!) And write “something missing” a story I had hidden away in the back of my mind for a long time.

I’m a massive fan of reading, lover of paranormal romance and adult romance. I’m also a fan of TV series supernatural and vampire diaries( something to distract my mind)

We would like to welcome Heather Shere to the Leeds signing!

1484108_559486654216880_792415278657270949_n

 

The words you type have the ability to bring your mind to life.


Romance writer with a fancy for everything thats bad for you.

Heather Shere is a wife of twenty some odd years and wants you to know that you get less for murder. She’s also the mother of two adult shaped kids, who she thinks she messed up just enough to make them highly successful individuals, who are also hilarious.
She has a masters degree in snark and nothing entertains her more than someone who can word battle with her. She considers herself an awesome cook and an expert baker but wants to eat out most days, however nothing is made ‘the right way’ unless she makes it herself.
When she gets bored she likes to tinker with different hobbies like crocheting, scrapbooking, stamping and card making. Her newest and most fulfilling passion is writing and she welcomes you into the deep dark depths of her mind.

We would like to welcome Louise Bay to the Leeds signing!

11144493_955923597782450_8897203433026757226_o

USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read. Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series and What the Lightning Sees. The novels and together each series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.
Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!

 

 

Here are some of Louise’s links to peek at.

We are so thrilled she will be joining us in Leeds next year.

Sure you will all give her a warm family welcome

We would like to welcome Charlotte E Hart to the Leeds signing!

 

12063386_937347963011846_3100904852874288252_n

 

 

Charlotte is an erotic romance author living in the heart of the Shropshire countryside in Great Britain with her partner and daughter. She’s lived all across the United Kingdom due to her previous employment as an Event manager but finally settled in a small town that still reeks of old school England. She graduated from college with a degree in Business and her Horse Riding Instructors Qualification which eventually led her into the very bizarre world of outdoor pursuit’s event management where she trained to instruct all sorts of equipment. Some of which included crossbows, shotguns, quad bikes, 4×4 driving and archery, she’s not entirely sure how any of it happened but knows that she adored every minute.
Her love of reading started in college but the call to writing came much later in life after the birth of her daughter when she finally had the chance to put pen to paper for the first time. Writing has become a revolution for the soul and she cherishes every second that she’s sitting at the laptop and tapping her way into a new character.
When not writing she enjoys socialising with close friends and travelling to all the major cities across the globe, travel has always been a constant companion to reading throughout her life and only increases her thirst for stimulation.
With the release of her novel Seeing White, the first part of the White Trilogy, she intends to spend the next year enjoying every element of being a published author and learning as much as she can. She also very much looks forward to hopefully meeting some fans at some point.

We would like to welcome Nikki Groom  to the Leeds signing!

 

1618707_816050848488043_4968003304537306990_n
Nikki Groom is a hopeless romantic, lover of all things happily ever after and firm believer that love makes the world go around.
In her spare time, you will find Nikki laughing with her very treasured family, walking with her beloved dog in the hundred acre wood or curled up in a cosy corner with words and wine.
She lives in East Sussex with her husband and two children. Having turned her hand to many things over the years, Nikki is now proud to add ‘author’ to that list.
Having always been a dreamer, Nikki’s imagination stretches far and wide, which enables her to get lost in faraway places and imaginary people.
Her debut novel is ‘Holding Aces’ which will was released late Spring 2014.

Nikki loves to chat, especially about books! You can find her here…
