I give up. Two weeks have passed, I’ve sent numerous pleas to support at both FB and IG with no reply and my Instagram account is still under temporary lock. So, here’s my new one if you’re of the mind to keep following me. It’s @julieembletonauthor 

It’s upsetting to know that after 8 or so years of holding an account, spending plenty of money on ads, and always behaving myself that I can get cut off without any response. We’re nothing but data fields to the FB farm, and it sucks big time. 

I’ve missed my #instafam so much and am very happy to be back. I will return to following all of you, but I’ll take it slow so as to avoid another jail sentence. I want to go on a massive ‘like and comment’ spree for all I’ve missed out on over the last fortnight, but I’m likely to get into trouble for that too, so for now, I’ll interact with caution. 

Lastly, but most importantly, I want to say a mahoosive thank you to everyone who messaged, tagged and mentioned me in their stories during my incarceration. While I could see some comments and DMs, I couldn’t respond, so please don’t think I was ignoring you! 

My old account may return, and if it does, I’ll hop back to it, but until then I’ll hang out with y’all here instead! It’s good to be back 🤗

I’m still stuck in #instajail 😭 Maybe I’ll be released on Thursday which is the 2 week mark. If not, I’m not sure what to do as there have been no replies to the requests and emails I’ve sent. 

I miss my #instafam a lot. Lockdown already sucks without losing my chats with you guys. Here’s hoping I’ll be back on Thursday, otherwise I might just set up a new account. 

I hope you’re all keeping safe and well. ♥️

💫This week’s #selfpromotesunday features The Veiling, book 2 in the Voyager Chronicles Prophecy Series.💫

Charlie Fernandez is itching to apprentice as a Gatekeeper, just as his father, Leon, did before him. With Rathan's prophecy now in motion however, he and his family find themselves caught up in the fallout, responsible for the protection of their unexpected house guest who hides amongst them. 

Struggling with the far-reaching action they took to protect Elaria from her enemies, Solomon and the Royal Guard remain in the Second Realm to fight. But with Lorcan's demon army closing in and Elaria's fate unknown, Solomon fears the worst for the prophecy's outcome. 

With sorcerer pitted against sorcerer, The Veiling continues The Voyager Chronicles Prophecy series, where magick is the most powerful weapon and love the most invincible protection

The Dawning, The Veiling and The Claiming are available through all ebook retailers.

Lost & Found by @juliablakeauthor is this week’s review for #indiefeaturefriday 

♥️📚♥️

The charming Luke Blackwood has caught Arianna Santorini’s eye, but when she discovers he has the one thing she believes will destroy everything, she vows to never speak to him again. When terror strikes, Luke is the only person to whom she can turn, but can Arianna ignore her prejudice in order to save a life?
 
As the first instalment of the Blackwood Family Saga, Lost & Found is a fantastic start. I gobbled this up in just a few sittings, and with the fast pace, heart-pounding action and fascinating characters, I think most readers will find the same.
 
Blake never disappoints with her characters, and those we meet in this first book are no exception. Luke and Arianna make an interesting pairing. As a single mother, self-sufficient Arianna seeks control and privacy, so meeting Luke threatens her world of careful order. When she learns the truth Luke has hidden, she stubbornly refuses to consider any further communication with him, slamming the door on their budding relationship. But then the thriller aspect of this tale kicks in and Arianna soon finds herself relying solely on Luke to save the day. Tricky relationships are Blake’s forte, and thrown in with the ensuing action, it cooks up a romance with extra zing.
 
A great start to this saga. I’ll definitely be reading the next two books to find out more about this intriguing Blackwood family!

Hello from Instagram jail. The grub here’s not too bad, but solitary confinement is a bitch. All going well I’ll be released over the weekend. Send bail money. Or wine. Wine would be good right now.

Looking for a meaty #fantasy read ? Longing for feisty heroines, gutsy heroes and a few truly heinous villains? Then check out The Dawning, book 1 of The Voyager Chronicles series available through all your favourite ebook retailers. 

Elaria Winterbourne has supernatural skills. She thinks they’re worthless, but her sorcerer-mentor, Solomon, knows better. He also knows another truth, one he keeps to himself. Hidden in an ancient book, riddles tease a glimpse of Elaria’s destiny. Already overwhelmed by the impending responsibility of her sovereignty, Solomon refuses to add to her strife. 

Rhyan Blackwood’s ambition lies within the ranks of the renowned Royal Guard of Lynan Castle. When a world he thought fictitious is revealed, the gravity of his new role weighs suddenly heavy, made all the harder by his stubborn charge who struggles against the constraints of his presence. 

Treachery surfaces when an adversary of Solomon’s emerges from a century of hiding. Eager for the chaos he can create by taking Elaria’s power for himself, Lorcan unleashes havoc. With Elaria unprepared and vulnerable, Solomon and Rhyan face a choice; trust in an obtuse prophecy, or betray Elaria’s trust. 

But is fate ever anyone’s to control?

Here’s an appropriate word for today’s #wordpornwednesday 

Here I am, still in Instagram jail 🙄 secluded, confined and shut in....sob. It’ll be a week tomorrow, so maybe they’ll let me out early for good behaviour.
