Afterlife Academy is free for Halloween and the next five days!

Afterlife Academy is going on a free promotion! To coincide with Halloween and the start of NaNoWriMo 2013, for which the first draft was written a few years ago, my first YA novel Afterlife Academy will be free to download for the next few days! It’s a spooky, paranormal read so is perfect for this time of year, and from today (October 30th) until Sunday (November 3rd) the Kindle version will be completely free to download from Amazon!

See?

It’s free in all countries so you can grab it from your local Amazon too!

About the book:
afterlifeacademy-350

Even being dead isn’t enough to get you out of maths class.

Dying wasn’t on sixteen-year-old Riley Richardson’s to-do list. And now, not only is she dead, but she’s stuck in a perpetual high school nightmare. Worse still, she’s stuck there with the geekiest, most annoying boy in the history of the world, ever.

In a school where the geeks are popular and just about everything is wrong, Riley has become an outcast. She begins a desperate quest to get back home, but her once-perfect life starts to unravel into something not nearly as great as she thought it was. And maybe death isn’t really that bad after all…

Welcome to Afterlife Academy, where horns are the norm, the microwave is more intelligent than the teachers, and the pumpkins have a taste for blood.

My books now in paperback + a plea for help!

Yes, I have some rather exciting news! All of my books are now available in paperback! How awesome is that?
Look!

WP_000658

They are, of course, available from Amazon and hopefully by the time this post goes out, Amazon will have finished linking the paperback editions to the Kindle editions and making it look all professional and stuff! But for now you can find the ‘real, actual book’ versions here:
Kismetology: UK || US
Creepy Christmas: UK || US
Afterlife Academy: UK || US
Not Pretty Enough: UK || US
North Pole Reform School is ready but not out until November 6th!

The second part of this post is a little plea for help.
On Wednesday (until Sunday) Afterlife Academy is going on a free promotion. The Kindle version will be free to download for five whole days, to coincide with Halloween and the start of NaNoWriMo (the first draft was written for NaNo a few years ago!) Last time I did this was with Kismetology in April, and it was very successful, reaching #7 in the overall UK chart, in no small part thanks to you lovely people who read this and share my ramblings! So, on Wednesday, when the book is actually free, I will be, um, everywhere, talking about it and plugging it. If you have a chance and could mention it on Twitter, FB, or otherwise, or RT any of my promo posts, that would be fantastic! I promise I’ll attempt not to bore you all to death! Also, if you’ve ever fancied reading it but not bought it yet, this is a good time to get it for free, and if you have read and enjoyed it and know someone else who might like it, please feel free to send them to Amazon between Wednesday and Sunday! UK Here and US Here!
Thank you all so much!

The third part of this post is a plug. My friend Ashley has just started up her own blog touring company, so if any of you are authors who need a blog tour, promo blitz, or cover reveal with very reasonable prices, or if you’re a blogger who fancies hosting some tours, check out Paranormal Sisters Touring! I’m slightly involved in it too by designing custom banners for the tours!

A little ‘Easter Egg’ treat from Afterlife Academy by Jaimie Admans

Jaimie:

My lovely friend and fellow author Sharon Sant has allowed me back on her website again. This time I’ve written an extra scene from Afterlife Academy exclusively on her blog! Don’t worry, it’s not spoilery if you haven’t already read the book!)

Originally posted on Sharon Sant:

I’ve got to know Jaimie well recently and have just started to read her books.  She has the most engaging, quirky imagination and I’m chuffed to bits that she has written this extra scene with the characters of Afterlife Academy especially as a treat for you guys:afterlifeacademy-200

AFTERLIFE ACADEMY EXTRA SCENE:

Anthony wants to meet Charlie. I don’t see the attraction myself, he’s just a pumpkin. Albeit a growling, vicious pumpkin that hates everyone who enters the room. Charlie, that is. Not Anthony. Anthony is just a geeky boy who, okay, is maybe a little bit nicer than I have ever given him credit for.

My roommate Caydi is in class when Anthony follows me into the room. It’s weird to have Anthony standing in my bedroom with me. It should be Wade. Except it shouldn’t because that would mean Wade was dead too, and I don’t want Wade to be…

Preparations for Book 3! Afterlife Academy is coming soon!

Oh dear, I’ve neglected this blog a bit, haven’t I?

I have been busy preparing book three for release. It’s called Afterlife Academy – a Young Adult paranormal romantic comedy – no, it doesn’t fit properly into just one category!
It’ll be released on March 15th, with the cover reveal coming on March 8th.
