Welcome to the blog tour of Twisted Bloodlines! This amazing debut novel is being republished through Moon Rose Publishing on the 5th June 2013, and is one worth picking up. Were-creatures, horror, romance, suspense, this book has it all! Why not scroll down and find out why you may have a new series obsession…we’ve even got a guest post from the author, about what famous people she would include at a dinner party!

Twisted Bloodlines

Megan has never had what most would call a normal life.

Her childhood and teen years were spent on the run with her family, hiding from a horror so great it defines their world. Friends and homes are traded at a moment’s notice to escape from their worst nightmares.

Years pass, and her mother settles down with her new step-father, a kind man who does his best to protect them. Life lulls into a safe pace, and Megan finally feels as though she has control of her future for the first time in her life. But that peace is shattered with the arrival of a new family member, one that bears a striking resemblance to a savior of her past…

Confused by her deep emotional connection to him, things unravel fast. She learns that the people she lives with, even her own family, are not what they seem. Her only friend who helped her piece her life back together changes overnight, and she is left dealing with the fallout on her own…

As events unfold, Megan finds herself face to face with the horror that has haunted her since childhood. But will she be able to escape from her twisted bloodline?

And now for the guest post!

Why I Began Writing

I’ve always been a lover of books. As a child I used to spend my time either reading or writing stories of my own. I only recently began writing again, since I now have a little more time for myself, as my youngest is coming up to her sixth birthday. Not quite grown, but less demanding. I’m not the most confident of people, and have been toying with the idea of writing a book for many years now. My mind would often wander off, thinking up different ideas for a storyline, but I was never brave enough to put my ideas to paper. I think the final decision for me was after making several bad choices in books. I would begin reading them, but found that page after page was full of useless information, and the only interesting part came in the last few chapters. My own story ideas, as brief as they were, began to appeal to me more than the books I had been reading. It was almost as though I couldn’t settle until I actually put pen to paper.

I got myself a couple of notebooks and sat down, letting my ideas flow onto the paper. My first attempt wasn’t perfect, but I kept going back, making adjustments here and there until I got it to where it made sense, and had finally completed my first rough draft. I gave it to my mother so that she could read it, and let me know whether she thought it was good enough to continue perfecting it. She agreed that it was, and urged me to continue, and with added detail my story slowly came to life.

As a writer, anything is possible. You can escape from reality and create and mould your own little world, however you would like it to be. We have all at some point wished life could be different. Well, I have anyway, and writing is the perfect way to achieve this. I love writing, seeing how my characters develop as the story unfolds. The sense of accomplishment was amazing when I held my finished book in my hands, knowing that I created it. Writing is not just about putting pen to paper, there are a lot of other factors involved, and it can become very frustrating and time consuming. But I wouldn’t change a thing. It has all been a huge learning curve for me, but one which I have no intention of giving up. I enjoy it far too much. *grin*

More About The Author

Linda Jackson

I was born and raised in London, which is where I still live now with my husband and children. As a child I always had my nose stuck in a book. I started out reading mysteries such as Nancy Drew and then soon moving onto Agatha Christie. I then found a love of the horror genre, Richard Laymon being my favourite author among a few others. When a friend introduced me to the paranormal romance/fantasy genre I soon became hooked, building myself a very impressive to read pile and a long list of favourite authors. I would say both of these genres have influenced in the way I write and combining them is where I came up with the idea for my book.
