Because this is the first novel I've ever written from start to finish, let's celebrate! Fictional (because as a student, it's all I can afford) cake, alcohol and confetti all round!
Please consider leaving an honest review on Goodreads and letting me know what you thought. Your feedback is instrumental towards helping me to learn and grow as a writer, and I'd love to see what you thought! The old version of this story is called Queen of the Ashes, but you can find the Queen of the Night edition with the new cover on Goodreads too.
Thank you to all of my readers, voters and commenters, for one final time. You mean the world to me. Truly, if it weren't for my friendships with you, your enthusiasm for my work and your stellar feedback, I never would have been able to finish this book. My dream of completing a novel, wished into existence by dandelion puffs and birthday candles, has finally been realised.
If you have any questions for me, relating to this book or otherwise, please don't hesitate to ask in the comment section of this chapter. Otherwise I can always be reached via PM!

King of the Mountain
Book 1.5 of the Witchfire Series
(optional but recommended)
Growing up werewolf is brutal. The schools are remote, the internet connection is shitty, and to top it all off, students have to battle each other for a social rank that determines their quality of life after graduation. Enmities can last a lifetime. Death lurks in the woods...
Expelled from her old school for a crime she didn't commit, Ivy Thatcher must leave everything behind to start a new life at Ridgeview Academy, the most prestigious werewolf finishing school in Australia. But being the new kid isn't easy. The 2015 graduates have more secrets than years to them, a serial killer is picking off students one by one, strange doorways start appearing in her mind, and even more frightening than all of that: Ivy finds herself falling for one of her classmates...
As secrets are unearthed, telepathic bonds are forged and war ignites in the shadow world, Ivy must decide who and what is worth risking her life for.
Will anyone manage to survive Year 12?
*warning: this book contains some coarse language, violent themes and devastatingly attractive characters*
