Sheriff Luke Atwell, a religious man, doubts his occupation after
accidentally shooting a female bystander during a gunfight. The violent
deaths of lawmen and criminals that follow heighten his questioning and he
joins the priesthood to counter evil as a man of peace. However, his
lawman instincts remain as he deals with crime in his inner-city parish.
Temporarily relieved of his priestly obligations, Atwell returns as sheriff to
the changed, now crime-ridden Kansas town to rethink his calling, joined by
unlikely reinforcements—an experienced but alcoholic deputy and a youthful
banjo player. The team, often outnumbered, confronts thieves and killers in a
series of gun battles. As Atwell fights lawlessness, he struggles with his
feelings toward a recent widow. Eventually he must decide:  keep the badge or again wear the clerical
collar.

COVER REVEAL AND PRE-ORDER Christmas Presence – Lisa J Hobman

On that very first fateful day when I stood on the Bridge Over the Atlantic at Clachan Seil I would never have imagined that I would, someday, have three books published all connected to the place. But as of November 6th that should be the case!

The actual Bridge Over the Atlantic in the Highlands that inspired my debut novel

The actual Bridge Over the Atlantic in the Highlands that inspired my debut novel

After finishing Bridge Over the Atlantic and Bridge of Hope I missed the characters so very much. Being a HUGE fan of the festive season I felt what better way than to spend more time with them than at my favourite time of year.

I have stepped out of my comfort zone a little (again) with this book and have branched into the paranormal. Not somewhere I ever thought I would go but that’s the thing about writing. You set out on a journey never really knowing where the characters will take you.

Christmas Presence should be read after the other two books although the others can be read as stand alone stories if you wish.

Cover and blurb:

Mallory got her happily ever after, but haunting loss in the past has her running scared that she will lose her beloved yet again. Can anything…or anyone make her realise she needs to let go of the past and live for today?

Lovely new cover for my upcoming Christmas release. Thanks to www.estrellacoverart.com once again.

Four Days Until The RoNAs – How nervous am I?!

RONA R Contemp

It is so hard to believe that in twenty two days I’ll be celebrating the one year anniversary of the release of my debut novel Bridge Over the Atlantic. How time flies and how things change.

I started out on this journey just to prove to myself that I could complete something as lengthy and time consuming as a novel and one year on I have published two further books and have another three contracted to be published within the next year. It’s completely staggering and very humbling.

Autumn landscape

In five day’s time I go to London to attend The RoNAs. This is the annual awards ceremony rung by The Romantic Novelists Association to find the Romantic Novel of the Year. And my debut novel is on the Contemporary Romance shortlist. As I type those words it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet – and if I am completely honest I am not sure they will until I am on the return journey from London having met my idols and brushed shoulders with some very talented people. Me. How bizarre!

RNA Awards 2014 Contemporary

This past week has been a roller-coaster of press and panic! I was interviewed by Emma, a journalist from The Daily Record’s Sunday Mail paper. It was a ‘Peek Inside Your Pad’ piece and was very positive; my house looked remarkably tidy for once!

But my word the panic! The nerves are jangling now I’m counting down the days until my trip to London.  I’m under no illusions about winning the award – I’m shortlisted beside some of my favourite authors and so I have to be realistic here –  but just to have been shortlisted has been wonderful. Anything else will be the cherry on the cake!

I have my outfit prepared and thankfully got my parents approval on that – they are my rock and so I had to ask 🙂 But the next few days I think are going to be very emotional for many reasons. Not least because of that monumental trip south to discover how my book has done. 

I will no doubt report back once the dust and my ragged emotions have settled. Bridge Over the Atlantic now has a companion novel signed up for publication in October. It tells the story from the main male character’s POV and has much of his back-story in. I wrote this book on the request of my readers who had simply fallen in love with him and I happily obliged. I loved writing it and I can’t wait to share it with the people who want it the most.

quote-graphic-bridge-of-hope-3 (1)

I can never say thank you enough to the people who continue to read and enjoy my work and to the other authors who have taken me under their wing, showing support.

As for my readers – many of whom have become really good friends – I can’t wait to share the book that I wrote for them and can only hope that Bridge of Hope does them proud.

Awesome October!

Well hello there!  And welcome back to my blog.  The month of October is shaping up to be an exciting one for me.  Why is that?  I hear you cry!  😀

Well…it’s all about the books folks.  From October 1st 2013 the eBook of my debut novel Bridge Over the Atlantic is being reduced in price to $0.99/£0.77 for the month.  IF YOU DECIDE TO PURCHASE PLEASE CHECK THE PRICE PRIOR TO PURCHASE IN CASE OF ANY DELAY IN THE PRICE REDUCTION.  So if you love contemporary romance then why not check it out?!  Although it’s not classed as erotica it’s really only aimed at readers aged 18+.

bridgeovertheatlantic-21.jpg

Here’s the blurb for the book:

Mallory Westerman is a full-figured, successful, young business woman living in Yorkshire, England. Though very career minded, she is extremely self-conscious about her ample curves and so her love life tends to pay the price.

Concentrating solely on her business, she has almost given up on finding someone to love. That is until she literally trips into the arms of a stranger who becomes her Knight in shining armour.

The immediate sexual and romantic spark that blossoms into love and the events that follow, irrevocably change Mallory’s life-path and self-image forever, but only go to prove that the road to true love is never smooth and that things don’t always turn out how you expect…

So what else does October hold in store?

On October 11th I get to share my THIRD book cover with you all!  Book number three is set to release January 2014 and I am loving my new cover!  Viola Estrella has once again worked wonders with my copious notes and has created something that I will feel proud to have my name upon.

Also in October I am on tour!  A virtual tour that is 😀  I will be travelling around other blogs for a week with a variety of posts that I’m hoping you will really enjoy.  You will discover snippets of useless information about me, discover the story behind my second novel Through the Glass and you will get a little more insight into one particular character who has proved rather popular.

Anyhoo…if you would like to read my debut novel at the reduced price then here are the links you will need can be found HERE.  PLEASE CHECK THE PRICE BEFORE PURCHASE IN CASE OF ANY DELAY IN THE REDUCTION TAKING PLACE!!

Something in the Scottish air?

Well it’s a hat trick folks!  I have just signed my THIRD publishing contract!  I am sure there is something in the Scottish air as I never in my wildest dreams would have expected this when we relocated just over a year ago.

I am still working with the ever growing independent publishing company 5 Prince Publishing who continue to show the most wonderful support and faith in my abilities; which both delights and humbles me.  Getting one contract was immense…two was astounding and now…words ALMOST fail me 😉  But you know that I have a tendency to ramble so there’s not much chance of complete silence.

Lisa Book Covers

So here I am again, thinking about book cover designs!  You know me.  I get my priorities a little skewed.  Instead of thinking of the edits and the content at the moment all I can think is “How pretty is it going to look?”  As this is another stand alone book I think I am leaning toward a similar style cover to my previous two, with my name in the same font as before.  I believe it’s referred to as branding.  A new concept to me but one I am fast becoming accustomed with.

IMG_20121211_185028

Now speaking of the Scottish air, the temperature has dropped significantly today!  I have even resorted to turning on my central heating!  Shock horror!  It would be lovely to think that this was a temporary blip but having lived here for just over a year now I am guessing that perhaps winter is well and truly on its way.  And in all honesty I really don’t mind.  I am quite a fan of autumn with its rusty reds, golds and browns.  And so it is with a big smile that I will pull out my woollies and boots and set them back in my wardrobe to replace the thinner items there at the moment.

We had out very first harvest of veg from the plot in our garden this week too which was wonderful!  Onions, carrots, potatoes, apples and blackberries.IMG_20130915_130848

It’s quite a sense of achievement for Hubby considering he has put so much work into it this year.  And there is something rather satisfying about eating fresh produce straight from your own garden!

Well, that’s my news for now folks!  So bye from my little corner of Scotland.  I will share more news when I have it.  Oh and if you read and enjoy Through the Glass or Bridge Over the Atlantic (which I really hope you do) then please leave a review and spread the word!

One Crazy Week! Bridge Over the Atlantic Nominated!

Hello everyone!

I just thought I would post a little update on how things are going with me and my venture into the world of romance novel writing!

Through the Glass out now!

Through the Glass out now!

It’s been quite a week to say the least.  As you will know if you read my blog regularly, my second novel Through the Glass was published at the end of last week!  It’s so surreal to see my name on the front of a book and in online stores.  But it’s wonderful to hear from people who tell me they have read my books and have enjoyed them.  The reviews are starting to build up which is fantastic.

What made this week such a wild ride was discovering that Bridge Over the Atlantic has been nominated for a Novel Grounds Literary Award for BEST ROMANCE!!  To say I was over the moon when I found out is probably an understatement!  I was so happy I wanted to share the news!  This is a really big deal to me and even if I don’t win (and boy is competition tough!) it was so wonderful to know that people enjoyed Bridge Over the Atlantic enough to nominate it in the first place.

Bridge Over the Atlantic is nominated!

Bridge Over the Atlantic is nominated!

There are several different categories to vote in so if you get a chance pop on over to Novel Grounds and place your votes for your favourite book.  One vote in each category is all you are allowed.

I am now awaiting news on my third novel which has been submitted and I will post more info when I can.  And so the excitement continues!  Thank you so much to everyone who has read my books and continues to support me and read my blog!

 

 

Lisa J Hobman (that’s me!) Second novel Through the Glass published!!

It is with great excitement and a huge lump of emotion lodged in my throat that I can announce the publishing of my second novel Through the Glass!  The words ‘Yipeeee!’, ‘Squeeeeeee!’ and ‘Yay!’ spring to mind 😀

Anyhoo…here is a little info to whet your appetite…

EXCERPT :  For ages 18+

Chapter 1

February 2009 – The break up

“So, that’s it then, Flick?” Jim raised his arms in exasperation. “You’re leaving? You’ve completely given up?” He was past trying to convince Flick that they could make a go of it; work things out; get through this and come out the other side stronger. The past few months had been one argument after another and Flick had spent less and less time at home.

“It’s for the best, James. And please don’t call me Flick,” she sighed. “It’s not my name. Not anymore. I grew up. It’s good in the adult world you should visit sometime, you might like it,” she snorted derisively.

Jim shook his head; sadness oozing from every pore. “Aye, well you’ll always be Flick to me. And I’ll always be Jim. What’s with all this ‘Felicity and James’ bollocks anyway?” His accent always became stronger when he was angry. This was one of those occasions when the true Scotsman came out fighting. His chest heaved as he tried to calm the storm raging beneath his skin.

He almost didn’t recognise the woman standing before him in their bedroom; her fitted designer clothes complete with pearls and a shoulder length smooth sleek hairstyle. Such a contrast to the girl he fell in love with. Back then it was all flowing blonde waves and long, floating skirts. She was softer then; in every way.

“Well, as I said James, Felicity is my name…Flick was left behind at university. She was doe-eyed, foolish and rash… Look, there’s no point us going over old ground.” She pulled the handle up on her wheeled suitcase. “I’ll be staying with Polly and Matt for a while whilst I figure out my next move.”

Matt had once been Jim’s closest friend but that friendship had somehow fizzled as his relationship with Polly had intensified. That saddened Jim.

Felicity went on, “Nilsson-Perkins have offered to help find me a new place near the city centre so I can be closer to the main gallery.” She wandered over to him and placed her hand on his arm. “It’s for the best, James. I think you know that deep down.”

He looked, pleadingly, into her eyes, his chest still rising and falling at a rapid rate. “For whom? For me?. I don’t think so.” His voice cracked as he shook his head; he stared intently and for several moments she seemed caught in his eyes. He thought he saw her shield begin to melt but she shook her head and looked away.

Turning back to him she shrugged her shoulders. “It was inevitable when you think about it. We’re from two different worlds…we want completely different things, James.” Her voice softened as she squeezed his arm. Her blue eyes, however, that were once full of love, were ice cold.

She wheeled her case toward the bedroom door and turned back to face him one last time. Her eyes were glassy with unshed tears now and Jim was relieved to see some, albeit small, expression of human emotion from the woman he had witnessed, slowly, becoming some kind of hard, Siberian robot.

“For what’s it’s worth…James…I do love you. You were my first love and so I probably always will. I just feel like…” she paused, clenching her eyes closed as if to find the strength to carry on speaking, a tear escaped. “Like maybe we’re not good for each other. We’ve grown apart. I’m ambitious and you…you want babies and the white picket fence thing…I’m just not ready…I’m not sure I ever will be. In a way I’m doing you a favour.” A sob escaped her throat as she spoke, “This way at least you get to meet someone new and have children and do all the family things that I’m just not capable of.” She sounded to Jim as though she was trying to convince herself.

Jim’s lower lip began to tremble. “I don’t want anyone else…it’s you. It’s always been you.” He clenched his jaw. “What I don’t get, Felicity, is that you wanted those things too. We were both on the same page. I don’t understand how we changed.”

“We didn’t change. I did. Like I said, I grew up.” She shook her head. “I know that you haven’t changed.” She snorted. “Sorry, Jim but it’s true. In all these years you’ve kept the same hairstyle, the same clothing and the same laid back attitude. You still work in the same second hand book store, you still drive that ancient Land Rover and you still take that bloody dog everywhere you go! You’re not a student anymore, James. Maybe I want more, huh? Maybe I want someone who makes an effort!” Her voice gained an octave as her emotions began to get the better of her.

Jim widened his eyes in horror. “Whoa! Now just hang on there, lassie!” He held up his hands and his stomach knotted at her stabbing words as they sliced at his heart.

He stepped toward her. “You can’t say that I don’t make effort. Just because I’m in no way materialistic doesn’t mean I don’t care. I love you. I always have. You are my world! I don’t need things, Felicity, I need you!” His heart ached as it bombarded theinside of his chest. “I’ve done everything in my power to make you happy. I don’t know what else I could have done. And for the record, I’m not the one who’s given up here!” He raised his voice too, finally giving in to the pent up frustration he’d been harbouring.

“James, we want different things, accept it. Move on…please!” She opened the door and he made a grab for her. She swung around and crashed into his arms. Without thinking he took her face in his hands and kissed her with all the passion he could muster. To his amazement she didn’t slap him; she kissed him back. Dropping her suitcase she seemed overwhelmed by desire, anger, passion, lust, whatever the hell it was; she grabbed at his dark, shaggy hair as he ran his hands through hers; desperate to express his love for her; desperate to make her change her mind.

He moved from her mouth to her neck, his kisses urgent. Her head rolled backward and she moaned, grabbing at his T-shirt and pulling it over his head in one swift aggressive move. Before either could realize what they were doing or how they got there, they staggered backward and tumbled, wrapped around each other, onto the bed; their lips locked as their tongues danced and probed each other’s mouths.

I hope you enjoy Through the Glass 🙂

Belladrum & Gairloch…All in the name of research…again…well mostly ;-)

On Thursday August 1st we set out for our favourite spot, The Scottish Highlands.  The reason for this journey was threefold:

  1. It was our annual family holiday
  2. It was the Tartan Heart Festival at Belladrum
  3. We were visiting the places that feature in my second novel ‘Through the Glass’ which is released on August 30th

It was a two tent adventure!  We used a small tent for the festival and then our larger tent was erected for our trip to research the Gairloch and Sheildaig areas.  I will share a few pics of both events.

Tent City!

Tent City!

Now being a communication junkie and also having the task of promoting two books you can imagine my frustration at having very limited internet access and a constantly dying phone battery!  But…I was determined to continue as normally as possible and so it was an interesting venture into the world of internet hotspots and sitting in the car whilst the phone charged enough for me to check in!  My debut novel Bridge Over the Atlantic has been reduced for the month of August and so I was hell bent on getting the news out there somehow.

When we arrived at Belladrum on Thursday it was in the midst of a pretty torrential downpour and pitching a tent in these conditions is an experience to say the least!  Once we were all sorted, however, the kettle was on and we set about deciding on a plan of action for the three days we would be there.  And there comes a point where you are so drenched you can’t really get any wetter!

The following morning saw a break in the clouds and we all laughed as an enormous cheer and thunderous round of applause erupted throughout the whole camp, as the sun began to peek through the grey.  The day ahead suddenly became more exciting!  There were some fantastic bands playing.

The Lafontaines were absolutely awesome.  How these guys are not topping every single music chart is beyond me.  They’re talented musicians and have the unique factor of a Scottish rapper.  Kerr Okan hails from Motherwell and has an amazing way with words.  His poetry and the bands overall talent made this an exciting gig to be present for.

The Lafontaines

I experienced a bit of a dream come true.  One of my musical heroes is Dougie Maclean.  Sadly he was playing at the same time as Twin Atlantic but we gave them a miss to enjoy a sing along with Dougie.  He was wonderful.  I mentioned one of his most famous songs, ‘Caledonia’, in Bridge Over the Atlantic and was delighted when he sang it.  It was a very emotional experience hearing the audience sing the heartfelt words at the tops of their voices.  The whole gig was great fun as Dougie tutored the crowd in singing the guitar solos and backing vocals.  Wonderful!

Dougie

Washington Irving were as brilliant this time as when we saw them at the Black Isle Brewery’s Jocktoberfest last year.  We bought their CD this time and have listened to it lots since.  The Peatbog Faeries had everyone jigging along and thankfully their performance on the garden stage was blessed with bright sunshine!

Toby Michael’s Rolling Damned are another favourite of ours and their performance this year was excellent.  Toby is a born entertainer and arrived with a bright red painted face!  Their rendition of ‘A Little Bit of What You Fancy’ had everyone singing at the tops of their voices!

James are a band that I was a huge fan of back in the 1990’s and Tim Booth’s voice still has the capacity to send shivers down my spine.  Hearing everyone chant the words to ‘Sit Down’ really took me back in time and I left the gig with a rosy glow.  The fireworks were spectacular!

Other bands we saw and enjoyed: The Whiskey’s, Nina Nesbit (she sang The Proclaimers ‘500 Miles’ which is one of my all time favourite songs and another I nention in Bridge Over the Atlantic.  The Elephant Sessions – their fiddle player bears a strong resemblance to a young Tom Cruise (in my opinion!) They were great fun!  And the Noisettes who really had the crowd in the palm of their hand!  Amazing stage presence.  The selection of food available was fantastic and the toilet facilities were kept clean.  The Black Isle Brewery tent was our favourite place to drink!

Nina Nesbit

After we left Belladrum, still buzzing from the wonderful atmosphere and the fantastic experience, we set off north to Gairloch.  And what a stunning place it is.  Photos really don’t do it justice at all.  Being there was simply something else.  The views…wow!  The larger tent, complete with kitchen area dontcha know, was set up on the most stunning site we had ever stayed on.

We took a drive to Sheildaig where Through the Glass is set.  Being there made me feel very emotional indeed.  I could imagine Jim walking down the main street with his dog Jasper in tow.

I will post some photos here…these photos are ones that I think Jim would have taken himself had he been real

August is a pretty big month for me!  It marks the release of my second novel Through the Glass.  I still can’t quite believe that I have ONE book published, never mind two!  I still have to keep pinching myself that it’s really happening.

Through the Glass

I am still so overwhelmed and grateful to my publishers 5 Prince Publishing for taking a chance on a new author and to my wonderful editor Bernadette for teaching me so very much along the way.  This whole thing, since I relocated to Scotland just over a year ago, has been a huge learning curve but I have to say that as long as the ideas are flowing I will keep writing.

In the run up to the release of Through the Glass you will be able to read my debut novel Bridge Over the Atlantic in eBook at a VERY reduced price!  This is only happening for the month of August so grab it whilst you can if you haven’t read it already.  The story is only suitable for ages 18+ due to mature content so please bear this in mind!  

I will post the purchase links on this blog.  If you do read it I sincerely hope you enjoy joining Mallory on what has been called a ‘rollercoaster of an emotional journey’.

Since relocating to Scotland just over a year ago I have become a writing machine!  It started with a blog, then a magazine article and now I am writing my fourth/fifth novels!  (It was originally my fourth but there was too much to the story to contain in one book so it has now been split into two!  Yikes!)

Bridge Over the Atlantic was published in April 2013 and I’ve had some wonderful feedback from people who have read and loved the book.  It’s the best feeling when people tell you they love what you have written and that it has meant something to them.

Anyway, the weather over the weekend here in my gorgeous part of Scotland has been glorious!  We spent a little time at the beach at the weekend soaking up the rays and watching the world go by.  On a couple of evenings we have taken a picnic there too.  It really has been wonderful.

I had a little break to spend some quality time with my family but thankfully it left me feeling refreshed and raring to go!
