~~SUMMARY~~

Fix You 3d

You’ve found the one, but what if life has other plans?

London, 31st December 1999

At a party to toast the new millennium, Hanna meets Richard. He is a gorgeous, wealthy New Yorker. She is a self-assured, beautiful Londoner with no interest in clean-cut American men. They are from different worlds and have nothing in common… except for their instant – and mutual – attraction to one another.

As the clocks chime midnight it is a new year and the beginning of a wonderful romance.

New York, 12th May 2012

Hanna, the girl who broke Richard’s heart, walks into his Wall Street office – and back into his life – to reveal an explosive secret.

He was sure they were meant to be together forever, but she broke his heart so completely the last time, can he find a way to let her mend the pieces?

Warm, witty and a perfect piece of modern romance, Fix You is a love story to melt your heart.

Celebration Time!

Fix You is being released today. It’s a book — and a story — that is close to my heart, and I’m so happy to finally be able to share it with you.

I hope that if you read it, you enjoy the story and the characters as much as I did when I created them. 

I want to thank all of you, my readers and friends, for signing up for showing your support. Your enthusiasm, comments and messages mean everything to me. Thank you so much for making this writing gig fun.

From London to New York, from 1999 to 2012, Fix You follows the story of quirky, music-loving Hanna and handsome, driven Richard as they fall in love and are torn apart. Their tempestuous relationship leads to an explosive revelation that threatens to destroy them both.

Emotional and touching, this is a story of second chances. Is their shattered love beyond repair?

Why I love Pinterest

I love pinterest 2

Do you ever have those days when the words just don’t flow right? Those sad, lonely mornings when your characters refuse to do anything other than stick their tongues out at you? I’ve discovered the cure for this and any other writing-related woes …

Get pinning.

Seriously. Some may say this is a time-waster. Others may tell you that all you are doing is pinning a few pretty things onto a stupid website. To these naysayers I say

I love pinterest

I’ve already created a lovely board for FIX YOU which you can find here. I’ve also created a mood board for my work-in-progress (31,000 words and counting), which I have set to secret so only I can see it for now. But as soon as I’m ready to publish (um sometime in 2014) I’ll be able to make it public and SHAZAM one ready made pinterest board for all my readers (okay, my mum and Kate) to see.

In all seriousness, it may be a bit of a time sapper, but what it does is create a ‘mood’ for my writing which I can go back and look at again and again. When I’m lacking in inspiration I can find something to latch onto; a character, a scene, even a building. Sometimes that’s all it takes. And the beauty is, when I’m ready to publish, I can share that mood board with EVERYBODY. That makes me happy.

So, if you are currently pinning, drop me a line and let me know where to find your boards. And if you aren’t, it’s so easy to set up a profile. You can follow other boards, make your own and generally have a great time. Hopefully I’ll see you there! And if you want to follow me, my profile is: http://www.pinterest.com/carrieelks1/

Have a great day.

Sneak Peak – Fix You

To celebrate my facebook page getting 500 likes (511 as I type – and if you haven’t liked already, the link is here: http://www.facebook.com/carrieelksauthor) I’m posting a sneak peak of Fix You. I love this excerpt. It’s set in Hyde Park, which is my favourite of the Royal Parks in London, and sees Richard and Hanna drinking a little too much wine and being playful. I hope you enjoy it!!

Picnic 2

THEY WERE RESTING near the statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, blanketed by the warm summer air. Richard lay back, his head propped on his rolled-up jacket. Hanna lay curled up beside him, her cheek resting on his chest. An empty bottle of expensive wine lay on its side next to them. They were both feeling a little drunk.

“Ruby will be home soon,” he murmured, his hand tangling in her hair, playing with her loose tendrils.

“Mmm.” Hanna’s eyes remained closed. He could feel a slight moistening of his t-shirt where her mouth was.

“Are you dribbling on me?” He lifted his head to get a better look.

“I don’t dribble.” She was suddenly awake, whipping her head around to catch his eye, surreptitiously wiping her lips with the back of her hand. Richard laughed at her tell-tale gesture.

“Come on, admit it, I make you salivate.”

“Your modesty is scaring me.” Staring up at him, she bit her lip to restrain a smile before poking her tongue out and licking his t-shirt. “But if you’re going to accuse me of something I haven’t done, then I’m going to do it, anyway.”

Clocking the expression on his face, she jumped up and grabbed her bag, running over the open grass. She passed the statue in the middle of the lawn, heading toward the wooded area surrounding them. Grabbing his coat, Richard ran after her, his long, fast strides allowing him to catch her before she even reached the first oak.

“You’ve got no chance,” he laughed. Hooking his arms around her waist, he pulled her body back to his. He could feel the softness of her stomach rising and falling in line with her short, sharp breaths.

Hanna tried to wriggle against him, tugging at his arms, trying to escape. He held firm, keeping her body contained within his embrace, fighting off her attempts to get free. Her breathing slowed. He could feel his own heartbeat starting to calm after the unexpected burst of activity.

RELEASE DATE – FEBRUARY 2014

It’s Sunday night, and I haven’t blogged for a while so …

Hey hey, how is everybody doing? So, I’ve been a little bit absent the past couple weeks (cover reveals excepted, because the lovely authors / bloggers tend to do all the work for me.) But I haven’t been totally useless, I’ve been busy ferreting away behind the scenes because …

…I’ve been getting ready to publish my second book. Most of you already probably know this from Facebook and Twitter, not to mention GoodReads, but just in case you didn’t:

Fix You Lucia Banner 1

Apart from getting Fix You ready to publish (which takes a large amount of my time up) I’ve also been writing up a storm. I’ve finished the first draft of Unexpected, a New Adult novel, and I’ve written the first few chapters of another full-length contemporary romance which is tentatively titled When You Come Down. On top of that I also have Halfway Hidden #2 to write! It’s a good job I love my laptop.

I hope you are all having a great weekend. Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow to see the Fix You Cover Reveal and let me know what you think.

Best wishes,

Carrie Pink
