In order to motivate me to finish my Trilogy, I have decided to give away my eBook of HYBRID for FREE for one day only.

Click on the links below on WEDNESDAY 29TH MAY 2013.

Seeing as I am looking after my kids on their school half term break and I will have limited writing time, it would make my day if loads of you (who have yet to read it) would download HYBRID and give it a chance...

If you check out the latest reviews via the tabs on this blog you'll see why some readers call it the next big read.

The writing journey for this Trilogy has been emotional, confusing and unbelievable. I never dreamed I would do something like this. Whatever you make of it, I am already proud of what I have achieved...

So, PLEASE spread the word, tell your friends & family, help me out and download! It would put a massive smile on my face!

As a thank you for your support, I give you my chocolate muffin recipe! ENJOY


3 eggs
125g margarine
125g caster sugar
150g self raising flour
25g cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder


Mix everything together with an electric mixer (if by hand do eggs, margarine & sugar first).

Spoon into muffin cases.

Bake at 180 degrees (170 for fan ovens) for about 10-15 minutes.

Once cooled, cut a hole in the middle, scoop out, and split the "lids" in half for the butterfly wings!

Spoon in chocolate buttercream (made with margarine, icing sugar, a small spoonful of water, and cocoa powder - I mix to taste! Quantities vary!) or melted chocolate.

Place the wings on top, sprinkle to decorate, and then share and EAT!

Have a great week,
Vanessa :) xx HUGS
