Dawn Summers is dying. It’s 1853 and as the seventeen year old continues to fade away she has visions of the father she never knew, urging her to fight for her life.
In the small village of Fandova the only medical care is in the form of the mysterious Dr. Moralus who has a known penchant for bloodletting. Thomas, Dawn's fiancé, is warned against inviting his intervention, but feels he has no choice, he pleads with the doctor to save Dawn’s life…whatever it takes.
Whatever it ‘takes’ has some consequences neither of them expected. Now, it’s a hunt to the death, with both Dawn and Thomas determined to win.

My Ten Favorite Ways to Procrastinate
In an ideal world I’d write solidly pretty much all day long. But there are just so many temptations pulling me away from my laptop that some days I struggle to just focus on taking the words from inside my mind and capturing them on the screen. So I shall share with you the ten main offenders for robbing me of precious writing time;
My equal devotion to both McDreamy and McSteamy is a constant distraction from writing. I love watching Grey’s, there is something about the drama of life saving surgery that is impossible to ignore! I own all the seasons on DVD and regularly re-watch them when I should be writing…
Rollo is my beloved dog and I think that I enjoy going for walks more than he does! I live near some woodland which is really nice to go walking in and take in the abundance of nature. It also gives me an opportunity to clear my head. I do some of my best thinking when I’m out walking with Rollo.
If a friend calls up suggesting an impromptu girly lunch I can never turn them down! I love spending time with my friends. I’ve grown up with them all and we are like a little family. Seeing them always brightens up my day.
I adore the Final Fantasy franchise and have just bought the latest installment in the series. The games are amazing but so immersive and they require a lot of time and dedication, which I happily commit to but sadly it is often at the expense of my writing!
Animal Crossing New Leaf
Animal Crossing is just so addictive! Every day you have to log on and tend to your village through watering plants and helping out your residents. I easily lose an hour a day to my little town! I feel bad if I neglect it for too long and so delay writing to go catch virtual fish…
Having a bubble bath is easily one of my favorite things to go. I love lying back in the bubbles and just letting all my troubles of the day drift away. In the evening, when I should be finishing off my writing I’m usually switching my computer off early so that I can indulge in a long, luxurious bubble bath! The more bubbles the better!
Cups of Tea
Being British I love my tea and my days are centered around them. I regularly stop writing to go and make myself a nice fresh cup. I like to curl up on the sofa and watch one of my other procrastination causes; Grey’s Anatomy!
Idly browsing the internet became such a big problem for me in terms of drawing my focus away from writing that I had to disconnect the computer where I write from the wi-fi system completely. I shut myself away in my study and can only write on my laptop. I have another computer downstairs which is connected to the internet where I can do virtual window shopping to my heart’s content!
Don’t get me wrong, household chores are extremely important. I’m very much a tidy house, tidy mind sort of person. But a day spent hovering, washing and polishing my house is a day spent not writing. So as essential as cleaning may be, it does force me to procrastinate from my writing.
One thing that can keep me away from my own stories is a really great story written by someone else. Usually I read only at night before I go to sleep, but if a story really grips me, my reading time bleeds in to my day and instead of writing my own stuff, I’m hungrily reading through a fantastic story! But reading wonderful stories also helps as it inspires me to want to up my game and create memorable books of my own!
