Latest Event Updates
The year is progressing. Valentine’s Day has been and gone.
With works still busy with print books and also creating the large font print books for low vision, or as I would say, books which are easier to read! My two WIP are still going strong, and soon I will start posting little snippets.
Another big announcement for this year is, I have finally added a new page to my website!
I have been extremely busy with clients and assisting them with their book files. From there they have now published in print and eBooks. Both fiction and non-fiction.
Even though my name is not mentioned in their books – well they are not my book babies to begin with. I still feel proud with the knowledge I am behind the reason why these books are available to the public today.
So if you have been debating what you should do with your completed manuscript and wanted to turn it into the digital files required for uploading to be a Print book or an eBook, send me a message and we can work out the best course to go. I can also provide advice to becoming an indie author in this big scary world of publishing.
How have you been coping with all this hot weather? Today it is already hitting 40 and the wind has picked up. The sad part is, the temperature is meant to be increasing, until the cool change hits.
The plan for today to head out and try and complete all tasks before the temperature is too high. Then spend the rest of the day on my current WIP, with a cool drink beside me and the air conditioning blasting.
Tomorrow is Australia Day here in Oz. Not sure if we will be attending one of the many breakfast BBQ’s or lunch. Whichever way our day will be spent, please take care out on the roads. Traffic will be heavy, take plenty of drinking water with you.
For those of you in the bushfire area’s, big hugs to you all. Take care and leave early. Don’t risk you life, it is not worth it. A house can be rebuilt, you will be missed, but you can never be replaced.
Edits for Kept In the Dark Of Love and Lust are still moving forward. Fingers crossed they will be complete soon. And the book will be released to the public. Getting excited and I cannot wait for everyone to read it.
With the postponed authors signing on the 19th January, fingers crossed there will be a new date soon.
As for this weekend, have a fantastic time, keep safe and be careful out on the roads.
P.S – If you are out and about on Sunday and in Victoria, down towards Phillip Island, take a detour and visit the little beach village – Kilcunda for their lobster festival.
A great day out with many different stalls of goodies to be purchased, including the chance to win your own cooked crayfish!
Welcome to January, 2019.
My first bit of news, my ebooks are now in PRINT!
They look fantastic and I am one happy little girl.
On a sad note, my first book signing for this year, has now been postponed.
Yes, the Berwick Author Signing, which was meant to be held on the 19th January, Berwick, Victoria, has been placed on hold. Keep posted. When I find something out regarding new dates, I’ll let you know.
On the writing front, I am still busy with edits and the WIP. Lot’s to do and not enough time to do it in.
I better go, just a quick note to say “hi”
ohhh. Look at the clock, it must be cuppa time
Happy New Year, everyone.
Today while I sit in front of my trusty computer, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the weather is fantastic.
This year will be a busy one.
First off, I have books on order! Yes I have ordered printed books… Yay me.
As for the books for POD, I am still going over the eProofs. Looks like I might require a new cover.
This year I will start the year off with two book signings, one on the 19th January and the other in March. I cannot wait to see some of the gorgeous people who take the time to read my books. I will also have available for sale, necklaces, key chains, coffee mugs and many other items.
With more books waiting to be completed, written and edited, all going well, I will aim to release three if not four books this year. Fingers crossed for me.
So another year has ended and another has just started, what are some of things you have planned for this year?
Oh, look at the time… It is cuppa time already.
Go and put the kettle on and grab a good book and sit back for while and relax, on this the 1st day of January, 2019.

Bookbaybz – interview with MC Dalton
M. L. Tompsett has been creating worlds to escape to since she was a little girl. And years later still enjoying her writing in her imaginative make-believe worlds with interesting characters and steamy scenes. Finally moving forward to the big wide scary world of publishing in print and the new world of digital eBook publishing.
M. L. Tompsett is married to her childhood sweetheart. They live in Victoria, Australia and have two fully grown, handsome and extremely talented in their own way – sons.
A tea drinker and a lover of fine chocolate, okay nearly any type of chocolate, especially milk chocolate covered liquorice. (YUM) M. L. Tompsett enjoys drinking from her designed author’s mug while typing away on the next manuscript.
With her first series, out on the digital shelves and in print (softcover). M. L. Tompsett is excited to see something she has been working on for far too long become a reality in the published world.
From the blurb of the third book – You Never Know.
Leaving her family behind and turning her back on her destiny, Alex Smithlyn is a Dark One princess, living in the human realm. Recruited by the head of The Corporation, both Alex and Branx Rayden work as partners in the SFD or the Special Forces Department, in the City. Solving crimes, catching the bad guys and the bad paranormal entities gone rogue. Fighting for good, capturing and eliminating the evils of this world, until someone close to our young couple decided Alex is next on the list for extermination.
Captured and tortured, Alex uses her hidden abilities to escape with Branx. It soon becomes apparent, Alex was not meant to live to tell about it.
As a mysterious man appears, who is he? But more importantly, why is he looking for Branx and why did he want to capture, Alex? Secrets are revealed, shattering one family and changing their lives forever.
With Branx by her side, is the love they share strong enough to survive the evils around them? Will they live long enough to find out the truth before it is too late? Alex must survive if she is to become the next Queen of Darshia.
Who said the life of a Princess, is ever easy?
