The Girls and Boys Cover is FINALLY HERE!

It feels like I’ve been working on Girls and Boys for forever, but it finally has a release date. Before we get to that, I need to reveal the cover.

 

Here it is…

 

 

How amazing is it? J.C. Clarke of The Graphics Shed has blown me away once more with her graphics. I ADORE this cover.

Now, down to brass tacks.

Girls and Boys will be released on 4th July 2017 – I will be getting a pre-order sorted over the next few days, but for now, you can add it to your TBR list over on Goodreads.

And, to whet your whistle a little, check out the playlist I have created for the book over on Spotify. It certainly takes me back to my mid to late teenage years.

I hope you love the cover as much as I do!

Wow… time certainly flew around pretty fast and already it’s cover reveal day for Gage’s POV. I really hope you like it, because I adore it and think it tells the reader so much about the story inside.

Synopsis:

It Started in Texas, but as we all know, “…Gage Charles Weston will not start something without thinking about the consequences.” In this companion novella to the story that started it all, get a peek inside Gage’s head and find out what he was thinking and experiencing while Charlotte was turning his world upside down and vice versa.

**Praise for It Started in Texas**

“The banter between the girls is hilarious, they have such a beautiful friendship even though they all live countries apart from each other but they support each other so selflessly” – Natalie M (Amazon Reviewer)

“M B just makes all of the relationships within the group work, they feel real, I totally wanted to be in there with them! All characters were so laid back and relatable.” – Stacey G (Amazon Reviewer)

“I love how Charlotte came across as a ‘normal’ person. This author has a great talent of portraying her characters as real and she rocked it with this story.” – Philomena Callan (Goodreads Reviewer)

Cover Reveal – It Started in Texas

 Well, it’s finally here. The cover of It Started in Texas. I absolutely ADORE this cover, and I hope you do too. Also, the pre order is now live.
All the info is below, along with some teasers:
IT STARTED IN TEXAS
Name of cover designerThe Graphics Shed
Official genre of book – Contemporary Romance
Leaving the familiar comfort of her UK home for a weekend in Texas is one of the craziest things Charlotte Evans has ever done. Celebrating her birthday with friends is the highlight of her year until she bumps into her favourite rock star, literally.
Gage Weston is used to having women fall over themselves at his feet … A rock star, an actor, he’s got his fair share of female attention, but what is it about the Brit that grabs his attention from the moment they meet?
Communication issues and crossed wires plague them as they try to work out what is going on with them across thousands of miles. Crazy friends and distance issues aside; can a relationship work, or is it a simple case of ‘a girl in every town’?
“Sounds awesome. I better let you get back to your friends. Mine will come hunting soon if I don’t hurry back; it’s my turn to buy the drinks.” He held out his hand again. “I’m Gage.” I almost burst out laughing as I shook his hand, trying to ignore the warm feeling spreading up my arm.
“Charlotte, it’s nice to meet you.”
“You too. Sorry I knocked you on your ass, I hope it doesn’t bruise.” Oh my God, he actually fucking winked at me. Dare I?
“Maybe I’ll get you to check it later.” Over his shoulder, I could see some of the girls goggling at me trying to listen to what was being said. “The troops have come to rescue me. I gotta go.” With more than a hint of regret, I withdrew my hand from his once again.
“Yeah, see ya.” He looked over his shoulder at everyone watching us before disappearing into the gents. I took a deep breath and prepared myself for the Spanish Inquisition. Walking towards the girls, a huge grin on my face. As soon as I was within grabbing distance, they did just that and frogmarched me back to our table.
I was in the middle of my non-story when I felt a tap on my shoulder. Turning around, I was assaulted by those eyes once more as they looked directly into my own.
“You dropped your cell phone.” Sure enough, in his hand was my mobile. I internally groaned as I remembered the wallpaper was a picture of him from a recent magazine interview that had been posted online.
“Thanks. I didn’t even miss it.” Our fingers touched with a sizzle, or so I thought. It could have been the booze.
“No worries Darlin’. How’s the ass?” I saw mouths drop open around me at the blunt and flirtatious question.
“Its fine thanks. I’ll keep my eye on it.” My words made him grin again. I could get used to seeing that smile up close some more.
“Nice job if you can get it.” He flashed us all another wide smile and then sauntered back to his band mates.

6578767M. B. Feeney is an army brat who finally settled down in Birmingham, UK with her other half, two kids and a dog. Currently at university studying for her BA (Hons) in primary teaching, she procrastinates on her assignments by listening to music of all genres and trying to get ‘just one more paragraph’ written on whichever WIP is open. She is also a serious doodler and chocoholic. Writing has been her one true love ever since she could spell, and publishing is the final culmination of her hard work and ambition.

Her publishing career began with two novellas, and she currently has multiple projects under way whilst Honour, a compilation of her own military based shorts, was released in November 2013 and her short novel, The One That Got Away was released February 2015. Always having something on the go can often lead to block which eventually gets dissolved by good music and an even better book.

 Her main reason for writing is to not only give her readers enjoyment, but also to create a story and characters that stay with readers long after the book is finished, and possibly make someone stop and think “what if…”

 Losing myself in the titles, covers, and blurbs, I faintly heard footsteps behind me.

“Hey, can I help?”

I turned to face quite possibly the most beautiful man I had ever seen. His light brown hair had been bleached by the sun, and the bundle of messy curls made my fingers itch to tangle them among the chaotic strands. The man’s hazel eyes regarded both me and the slim book in my hand. His tall, lean figure was clad in skinny jeans, with an open, oversized shirt over a t-shirt and well- worn biker boots. He looked a little out- of-place among the surfer types I had noticed wandering around town.

“I’m just looking, thanks.” I couldn’t help but blush when he gave a slight smirk at the sight of the Mills & Boon book I held.

“If you’re after more . . . err . . . books in that particular genre, there’s a wider selection over here.” He indicated a bookcase to his left.

“This? Oh, no. This isn’t my type at all. I was just moving it out of the way to get at the new James Patterson.”

He cocked an eyebrow and his smile grew at my obvious lie. “Yeah, okay. I’ll leave you to . . . peruse.” He chuckled to himself as he made his way back behind the counter.

I slammed the bright pink book down so I could grab the James Patterson, the one I’d initially been after, and walked over to pay. “I’ll take this one.” I thrust my card at him and waited while he ran it through. I knew it was a simple misunderstanding, but it rubbed me the wrong way. Why couldn’t I just accept that he thought I wanted the Mills & Boon book? It was an easy mistake to make, I guess.

“Are you sure you don’t want the other one, too? It seems a bit more . . . your style.” He looked me up and down, taking in my denim shorts, skimpy vest top, and flip-flops.

His scrutiny made me nervous. I took a deep breath and ran my fingers through my hair to calm myself. “What would you know about my ‘style’?” I demanded, snatching the book out of his hand and clutching it to me, almost as if it were a security blanket.

I moved to retrieve my card, but he whipped it just out of my reach.

“I’ve worked here for at least five years, and in that time, I’ve become very good at reading people. You are definitely steamy romance material, with your pretty hair and . . .” He indicated my clothes and swallowed, “. . . And your skimpy clothes.”

“Well, it just goes to show that you’re not as good as you thought, then. Please give me back my card.” I held out my hand.

Once he’d returned the piece of plastic, I spun on my heel and walked out. I planned to read my book slowly, because I wasn’t going to go back there.

Not Long to Go…

I’m not at ‘excited’ yet. With 16 days until The One That Got Away releases (hopefully), I’m at the “I feel nervous sick” stage.

A whole bunch of what ifs are floating through my head right now.

  • What if it doesn’t release on time?
  • What if people don’t like it?
  • What if it doesn’t sell?
You see the common theme here?
This book has been in the making from the very beginning for about three years. It started life as fanfiction (I hear the hisses) one shot. When I decided to extend it, I thought it would be easy to change the names/descriptions before adding the rest of the story. Yeah, that’s not what happened at all. I split the original story into three chapters, then decided that the story needed t be told from both characters points of view, so I started to write Shane’s feelings on what was happening with Heidi.
Then, I stopped writing. For a long time, I just couldn’t get into the story, so I worked on other things, things that are still sitting in folders, on my computer, unfinished. Will they ever get to see publication? Honestly, I have no idea. I hope so, because when I start writing, it’s because the story interests me. It’s a story I not only want to tell, but to read myself.

Getting the cover made up helped, but it didn’t quite feel right The above image never really worked for Shane and Heidi after the reunion.It worked for their backstory, but myself and my cover designer, the amazing Grafix Momma and I went on a search. Well, she did, I was writing again. Filling in the blanks. Evenyually, the right cover was created and the story was finished. So I thought.
Three times, since finishing, I have had editors go over the manuscript, and three times there have been quite a lot of changes made. I even sent ARC copies out to a select few, before the story was fully complete. I admit, I got teary eyed over the response the story, my story, received. So, I worked my arse off to make the story the best it could possibly be.
So, now the story is in the final stages of polishing.I’m working on the acknowledgements and then it’ll go through formatting (thanks Rach), and it’ll be ready. Whenever I think about that step, I feel sick. Hopefully, over the next 16 days, I’ll start to feel excitement.
I just want my readers (all 7 of you) to enjoy this book as much as I have, mostly, writing it.
