Welcome to my first blog!
This is something I have wanted to start for a while but I have never found the time... until now! I hope to post to the blog a couple of times a month. Hopefully, you find it interesting and it gives you a little insight into the wonderful world of me (and my books, of course)! I'll be sharing behind-the-scenes sneak peeks, release updates, and any news I have.
I hope you enjoy it!
ALL ABOUT ME...
For those of you who don't already know, I'm Lianne, and I live in a small town in the Midlands in the UK, with my lovely two children and husband. I have been writing for seven years (wow, where did the time go?) after deciding to take the plunge and write my first book back in December of 2013. Reading has always been a huge part of my life and I love nothing more than escaping into a good (angsty) book. I still can’t quite believe that my passion for reading has turned into my career, talk about lucky!
What I have been up to lately:
For the past nine months, we have been eagerly (and stressfully) waiting to move house. Finally, that date arrived and we moved in a month ago, so life has been very hectic lately! I have loved putting my new office together and I have to say, it’s a dream come true. It is the perfect place for me to spend my days writing (and procrastinating, I'm really good at that!)
ALL ABOUT THE BOOKS...
Reckless Games (Rixon High 2.5) is due to be released this week! This is an expansion of Bryan’s story and I hope you will all love reading it, as much as I loved writing it. It's available for pre-order on Amazon, with other vendors being added soon.
I am also currently working on Ruined Hopes, the third book in the Rixon High series. This is Ashleigh Chase's story, and it is due to be released in November. You can pre-order it here.
Narrators have recently been cast for Blurred Lines, Tragic Lies, and Saviour of Regrets with production happening in the coming weeks, so watch this space! If you want to check out what audiobooks I currently have available, you can find a list here.
I have lots happening with foreign editions at the moment, which is very exciting. I have just had my first German edition go live (The Trouble with you), and Wicked Lies recently released in Portuguese. I have also signed a four-book deal with a publisher to translate Rixon Raiders into Hebrew, which I am super excited about. If you want to check out what's available in which language, all of my foreign editions can be found here.
After twenty months of no signings or author events, I'm excited to be attending some signings across the world in 2022. The first will be in RARE Paris in April, followed by Tattooed Bad Boys in York, England, and then Wild and Windy in the City, Chicago in May. I hope to see some of you there 🙂

ALL ABOUT WHAT I'M ENJOYING...
Being a full-time writer as well as a full-time mum doesn't leave much time for reading and binge-watching TV, but a girl's got to find time now and again to indulge, right?
What I've been reading:
I'm on a huge single dad romance kick at the minute. I just finished Reckless by Lex Martin and really enjoyed the small-town ranch vibes and angsty relationship between the two main characters Tori and Ethan. It gave me all the feels and left me with a smile on my face.
What I've been watching:
Me and my family are just getting over COVID, so what better way to make myself feel better than a Twilight marathon. I was a huge Twihard back in the day, so it was nice to revisit one of my favorite series of all time. It still gave me all the feels and I'm still firmly #teamedward
That's all for now.
Until next time,
