Hello, what is this, another book?


That's right! I just couldn't leave you hanging for too long, not with how book one ended. Don't worry, book two will be better, I promise. (I don't. I'm lying through my teeth.)


Book two is jam-packed with even more drama, even more danger, even more love-hate relationships... Just more, more, more! And it's here!


Here, actually << click it, go on. You know you want to.


As always, it is available as part of a Kindle Unlimited subscription.


I will be bringing you news about book three fairly soon. In fact, there's a cheeky pre-order already up... but no cover or blurb yet. No spoilers, muahahaha!



And if that hasn't slaked your appetite yet, don't forget about JADED!



That's all from me for now. See you soon!

REVOLUTION




Blurb:

Freedom comes at a price. When the time comes, will I be able to pay it?

Danger is stirring in Bale Rocks.


Maddock’s arrival seems to have triggered something. Light is shining into the cracks of our society, and more skeletons are being exposed than I could possibly have imagined.


Percival and the Aces have spies everywhere.


The mayor seems to be collaborating with notorious slave traders the Black Hands.


The Iron Fists’ grip on power is slipping with every day that goes by.


As I battle to keep myself and my sister safe, the mistakes begin piling up. It seems like if I make one wrong move, my whole life will go up in flames. The answer lies in convincing Bas of the secrets I’ve uncovered, but after what I’ve put him through, I don’t know if he will ever trust me again.


As things come to a head, can I find a path to preserve the peace in my town and keep my family safe, or will the price of my freedom spell disaster for the people I care about?

It's that time again!


(Do I start all my blog posts that way? I think I do. Oops.)


Oh well. It is once again time for a cover reveal, and, you guys, I think this might be my favourite cover of all of my books. It is so beautiful. I had the idea for it ages ago--there's a major clue to the plot on it (squint and you might catch it), and I am just so in love with how my cover designers brought it to life!


Isn't it stunning?


REVOLUTION is crash landing at Amazon on the 1st June. It's a pretty tight timeline, not going to lie, but don't worry, the book is done and in editing. I can't wait for you to read it. This one is jam-packed with action and romance, and it was so much fun to write. It has some of my favourite moments in the series so far. Also, the end is *chef's kiss*. Trust me. I just wrote it.


*innocent smile*


If you don't want any spoilers for book one, I recommend you don't read the blurb. If you've already finished book one and are hankering for more, I've thrown the blurb and links in at the bottom of the page.


See you soon,


Margot


P.S. Don't they look so pretty together?

I don't usually do much in the way of life updates on my blog, but something happened this weekend that I wanted to share with you guys.


On Sunday, I had the opportunity to meet Jeffrey Archer!



I honestly wasn't sure what to expect--Mum is more of a fan than I am (not really my genre). But he was doing a talk at a local literature festival, so we went along, and ohmygod, you guys, I was blown away!


He is a phenomenal storyteller.


(Incidentally, that was what the talk was about--how to write a bestseller.)


He had the entire audience hanging off his every word, and the best thing was that he actually turned almost the entire session into a Q&A. I love it when authors do that--it means we get to ask the questions that are important, and really engage with them. He managed it really well and told some lovely stories, too.


If any of you ever have the chance to see him live, I really highly recommend it. You'll have a great time.


Afterwards, he did a book signing, so I even got to meet him and shake his hand. He asked everyone about themselves, what they do, so I even got to tell him I was an author, which *squeals*. Might be the highlight of my author career so far (he wished me good luck!!!).



Alright, alright, I'm done fangirling. :)


During the session, he was talking about how to tell stories, and he shared his famous hundred-word story, UNIQUE, which he wrote for a challenge by the Reader's Digestl. The challenge was to tell an entire story, in just one hundred words (including the title). The story had to have a beginning, a middle, and an end, and he had to finish it in 24hrs.


(Scroll down to the bottom of that page to find it.)


Yep, that's it, just a hundred words. Including the title. And it really does tell a whole story, doesn't it?


He broke down how it worked for us, explaining every single word choice and how it provided the reader with context and intrigue, and guided us through the piece. Then he challenged us to write our own.


I couldn't not give it a shot.


Here's mine (and it was, in fact, written in 24hrs, even though I'm only posting it today):



What I learnt:

  1. A hundred words is really short. Really, really short. And when you take into account that it has to include the title... yeah. Really short.

  2. This kind of short story is like producing a surrealist painting. Show it to a hundred people, and ninety of them either won't understand it, or won't like it. (#unpopularopinion, but yeah, there you go).

Anyway, that's it for me today. What did you think of my 100-word short story? What do you think it means? And can you write your own? I'd love to see them!
