Corruption blog tour finale

Well, it's here - I've reached the final day of the blog tour for my new release Corruption and where better to spend it than in the company of the Ninja Captain himself, Alex J. Cavanaugh. Hope you can check out my post, where we're meeting the villain of the piece.

I've had a lot of fun over the past couple of weeks, and it's been great to reply to all the positive comments and see the reaction. Thank you! I'm going to take a quick breather before getting back to business with the next IWSG post next Wednesday. See you then!

Corruption Release Day

It's here! The second part of my young adult dystopian trilogy, set in a sinister future version of Earth, has made its way into the world. Here's all the details...

Title: Corruption
Author: Nick Wilford
Genre: YA dystopian
Series: Black & White
Series #: 2 of 3
Release date: 11th February 2019
Publisher: Superstar Peanut Publishing


Wellesbury Noon and Ezmerelda Dontible have found themselves in a position where they can make their native land somewhere that lives up to its name: Harmonia. However, they’re setting their sights further afield for their number one task: eradicating the disease that has plagued the neighbouring country of Loretania for generations and allowed the privileged Harmonians to live in a sterile environment.

After dispatching a team of scientists to Loretania, armed with cratefuls of an antidote and vaccine and headed up by their friend, Dr George Tindleson, Welles, Ez, and Welles’s brother Mal – who grew up in that benighted nation – start to worry when they hear nothing back, despite what they had agreed. Commandeering a fishing boat to follow the science team over the sea, they soon find that, while the disease may be on the way out, a new kind of infection has set in – the corruption they thought they had stamped out in Harmonia.

Can they get to the root of the problem and eliminate it before even more damage is done to an innocent people?

*** Warning – this book contains themes that some sensitive readers may find upsetting. ***

To help celebrate, I'm kicking off a two-week blog tour from tomorrow. Hope you can join me. It'll be a lot of fun!

IWSG February 2019

It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's time once again for the group posting of the Insecure Writer's Support Group. It's a safe haven where we can share our fears and insecurities without fear of being judged. Hosted as ever by Ninja Cap'n Alex J. Cavanaugh, today's awesome co-hosts are Raimey GallantNatalie AguirreCV Grehan and Michelle Wallace!

My main insecurity right now is getting everything ready for my blog tour, which starts in - gulp - five days! I've been rather behind, but I'm getting there. One more guest post to write!

So what is this month's IWSG question? It's "Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have?"

Well, I've been focusing on writing for the longest time because when I get time to be creative that's my priority. When I was younger, though, I tried drawing, acting, and even songwriting (with pretty terrible results). Don't know if I'll ever get back to those, but you never know! I've definitely got ambitions to write something in the dramatic field, maybe for stage or screen.

So without further ado let's see what's happening with the IWSG right now.

The next IWSG anthology, Masquerade: Oddly Suited, (YA romance) will be released on April 30, 2019.

The authors are looking for blog tour hosts. If you can host a day and help spread the word about the anthology, sign up through Google Docs.

You can also pre-order either print or eBook: Barnes & Noble / Amazon / Dancing Lemur Press LLC
Print ISBN 9781939844644 $14.95
EBook ISBN 9781939844651 $4.99

Plus show your support and add Masquerade on Goodreads.
