 Reviews from the Blog Tour:


“Tina O’Hailey nails it. She has a great talent, a gift. Character development is exceptional, the scenes are set so carefully that I found myself immersed in each.” 
–Ken Bangs, author of Guardians in Blue

“…the author has really put a lot of thought into how the time theme would work and she has managed to do it in such a way that it was understandable.” “It is a paranormal, time dimensional, friendship and love story, it was an intriguing and very interesting read, one I would recommend to other readers.”
–@yvonnembee, Me and My Books (vonnibee.wordpress.com)

“Tina has borrowed bits of myth and made characters and a world that is truly her own… Throughout the book you feel like something is coming, something big – it just keeps building and building to its ultimate crescendo.” 
–@purplekizz, Over the Rainbow (overtherainbowbookblog.wordpress.com)

“…couldn’t help but hold my breath during some of the incredibly tense cave diving scenes. I thoroughly enjoyed Absolute Darkness, it’s a fresh and intense read with a fine mix of the supernatural and real world elements. The idea of other beings able to manipulate the time stream of our lives is one with so much potential for further books and I’d love to see this world expanded upon” 
–@karlou, Hair Past a Freckle (hairpastafreckle72.blogspot.co.uk)

“Bloody hell this story took off at speed and I found myself gasping, feeling frustrated and loving every minute of it.” “It is heart in your mouth scenes with those adrenaline rushes with heart melting moments of romance to balance it all out. This author has got it perfect for me. The story will totally entertain you in every possible way. Very unusual setting, super love story and heart pounding pages. Super read!” 
–@susanhampson57, Books from Dusk till Dawn (booksfromdusktilldawn.blog)

“beautifully written” “The world building is great” “descriptions are literally breath-taking” 
–@richarddockett1, Welcome to my Worlds (richarddeescifi.co.uk)

“…a wonderful story with a hint at a prequel.” “…made me feel right there with the women as they explore.” “…a great change from the regular paranormal characters.” 
–Jessica Bronder, JBronderBookReviews (jbronderbookreviews.com)

“a romance but with a paranormal twist.” “The premise was something that I had never come across in a book before so I really enjoyed seeing the time aspect explored and what Alexander was capable of.” “I loved all the descriptions of caving even if I felt a little light headed when the tight spaces were described.” 
–@rae_reads1, Rae Reads (raereads1.blogspot.co.uk)

“keeps you engaged and I was hooked from start to finish.” “very different from the normal books in this genre and it made for a really exciting read!” “Five stars from me for this one – very highly recommended!!” 
–@dmmaguire391, DonnasBookBlog (donnasbookblog.wordpress.com/)

7 Ways to Help the Author in your Life

I couldn’t have said it any better myself. Look at Hannah’s book. Could it look any more delicious? She’s not kidding: cats and baked goods. I’ve people watched at book signing events and they always stop at the covers with cats and sweets.

This past six months of hanging out with indie authors and getting an education on the indie publishing world has been such an eye opener. It’s been great to learn from everyone. The hard work that goes into indie publishing has changed how I approach my reading list. I actually read more now, on the treadmill, before I go to bed, all the time. 90% of my reading list is indie authors. The result: I appreciate indie books so much more.

Today, I dropped by my local public library and donated a copy of my book, Absolute Darkness, and the nice librarian there asked me, “Do you make money writing?” I had to explain that this is my passion side-hustle that I hope breaks even. Sure, if you keeeeeeep at it, study and hone your craft, pour all of your passion into it—some people do make it big. I’m fortunate that the text books fund the novels and the love of the narrative form in animation, film and written fulfills my obsessive nature. I HAVE to write. It isn’t about the money. But seeing people enjoy the book, LOTS of people. That’s what drives me. I want you to read this. I want you to take this journey I’ve created and then tell your friends.

Certainly, one hopes that the multitude of friends and acquaintances will take a moment to appreciate this work. Reward us with a good review on amazon and goodreads so that the books can have a chance at being seen by everyone. It takes time to read. I know. It takes time to write.

Hannah’s blog post below gave me a literal gut laugh. She’s a riot. Buy her book next week and take a picture with a doughnut to promote it. That’s a win-win for everyone. Read the book on the treadmill if that makes you feel better. —happy indie reading, everyone. …tina

All The Way YA

This list comes to you from someone who has ridden the roller coaster of publishing more times than I would like to discuss or think about… mainly because I get very nauseous on roller coasters. This list is meant to be entertaining, yet there is a very serious message that I absolutely mean at this stage of both my life (I’m 43…you know, all that mid-life-I’m-not-bullshitting-anymore stuff) and this stage of my writing (so-called) career:


7 Things YOU Should do right now to help (me) the author in your life:

Here we go:

  1. BUY a copy of my book. Listen, I know you want me to just give you a copy because we’ve been friends for years (either virtually or in real life). Or, maybe you have some rule about never buying books because you want to save a tree? Whatever your…

Alexander speaks! Absolute Darkness character interview. Picture Cumberbatch. I did.

Alexander speaks! #AbsoluteDarknessBook character interview. Imagine Cumberbatch. I was hesitant to write a romantic interest, then I cast him. T’was easy after that!
