In honour of the day that’s in it, I’ve reduced my boxset – The Coming Home Series – to 99 cents. The price reduction will last till the end of the month and all royalties will be donated to The Red Cross Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine Appeal.
The Coming Home Series is my little box set of three novellas based in Ireland. Each story features the main character returning to Ireland to reconcile with their past.
In Remember Me, the very gorgeous billionaire Flynn Murphy returns to exact revenge on those who wronged him in the past but he gets way more than he bargained for.
In Unfinished Business, Liberty Rose returns to Ireland for the wedding of her daughter to the son of her ex. Old passions simmer beneath the surface, secrets are revealed and Liberty is forced to face up to the reality of her own marriage.
In Over Your Dead Body, Ryan Kennedy returns to Ireland to face the past that haunts him every day. He needs to confront those who destroyed him but he doesn’t know if seeing them again will prove to be his salvation or ultimate undoing.
Each story takes place against the backdrop of the beautiful west of Ireland. So if you’d like to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Emerald Isle – today’s the day! Just click the link below to be taken to the sales page.
I’m afraid I have to run now and get ready to go to the pub. Saint Paddy’s Day celebrations await! I hope you have a great day. Lá Féile Phádraig shona duit!
As of December 2020 – ALL my books are in Kindle Unlimited!
I’m not usually a Kindle Unlimited author. However, in recent months I’ve had a number of potential readers contact me to see if my books would ever be in KU. They explained that due to financial pressures as a result of COVID the only way they can afford to keep reading at the moment is through KU. So, in order to give these readers a chance to read my books and others who may be struggling financially, I’ve decided to put my books into Kindle Unlimited for now.
Someone To Come Back To and All The Little Pieces – Books one and two in the Omega Security Series are in KU and all my novellas are there in The Coming Home Series Boxset. My individual novellas remain outside KU so that if anyone wants to try and sample my writing and storytelling style, they may do so for minimum cost by buying a single novella.
I’m not sure how long I’ll leave my books in Kindle Unlimited for – three or six months – but it definitely won’t be any longer than that. To be in KU Amazon insists authors can’t list our books on any other retailer sites and I’m afraid I take issue with this policy. So, if you or anyone you know who has a KU subscription, want to try my books – then now is the time! Just click on the links at the bottom of each image to get started.
It’s official! Book three in the Omega Security series is in production and it has a title! I can’t tell you much about it at this stage, only that we are headed back to the Adirondacks (where the series began!) and book three will focus on Sam (the Little Creek mechanic from book one who lends Maggie his old F150 truck) and Gina (Maggie’s defence lawyer). The sparks are already hopping off the page between these two!
Of course some of the other Omega characters will make various appearances and that pain in everyone’s ass – Joker – will be up to his usual tricks.
I can tell you that book three has even more romantic suspense elements and a nasty piece of work who is hellbent on getting his revenge on Gina. However, he doesn’t bargain on going through Sam Taber and the Omega Security crew to get it. Oh and then there’s Gina’s Nonna and her four-legged fur ball of fury!
The publishing date has yet to be set and there’ll be an update on that soon but in the meantime I can reveal the title of Book Three in The Omega Security Series is – drumroll please! – The Games We Play.
So, I released another book… yup, All The Little Pieces – Book Two In The Omega Security series released on 19th July 2018. Hadn’t heard? Well that’s no surprise really because I didn’t tell anyone!
In keeping with my reverse marketing approach, I hit the publish button and that was it. This wasn’t intentional and as a matter of fact I had a totally different release strategy planned for this book (yes, I had an actual plan this time). However, my impulsive nature got the better of me (again…) and I changed the plan about three quarters of the way through and decided to set up a pre-order on Amazon. Unfortunately, when I did this, I didn’t realise it would then lock me in to the date I had set for publication – the 19th of July.
Then, of course, life decided to kick my ass and things other than writing had to take priority, so it was all I could do to just meet the publishing deadline. Marketing and promotion efforts went out the window and things became quite manic!
Throughout it all I had my lovely editor – the wonderful Sheryl Lee – waiting patiently for the finished product. I thank heavens for her incredible understanding and patience!
The lovely and ever so patient Sheryl Lee!
In keeping with tradition, I asked her to give her editorial opinion of All The Little Pieces on release day. It’s a bit late but here it is.
“Nobody writes a book about damaged people finding their way better than Roisin.
From the very beginning your heart bleeds for Ruby and you’re in her corner, willing her to let out her pain so she can heal.
Ruby and Snake are two people with troubled pasts. Ruby is a complex person, a person who can’t allow herself to face her demons and overcome them. She is pretending she has put her terrifying experience at the hands of terrorists behind her, but inside she is a broken mess.
Snake could have followed a very different, dark path in his life, but instead he chose the
higher, perhaps more difficult way. He is strong, protective, caring, and perceptive. He sees through Ruby’s façade into her broken heart and he wants to help her to heal.
The situation is complicated, there are secrets on both sides, and Ruby has a long, long way to go before she can be part of a couple. Snake is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her safe and help all her little pieces become whole again.
Roisin writes from the heart. Her characters are not perfect, they are three dimensional, real people. Ruby and Snake come off the pages and into your heart, and you won’t forget them for a long, long time. Fortunately, you don’t have to as there are more books to come in this series, and Roisin has given us a tantalising glimpse into the direction the series is headed, and it’s a cracker.”
So there you have it! All The Little Pieces – Book Two In The Omega Security Series is available at all good digital retail outlets a click away from you and in paperback on Amazon.
It’s currently on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and ibooks and will be on Kobo soon. Just click the links below.
The last day of 2016 is here and I, for one, am ready to bid it farewell. It’s been a year of fantastic highs and some hard-hitting lows – a true rollercoaster. However, there is one thing I achieved this year that I had dreamed of doing all my life and that is publishing my first full length novel – Someone To Come Back To.
Someone To Come Back To – Book one in the Omega Security Series
I’m a great believer in marking special occasions – as life is simply too short not to – and celebrated the launch of the ebook online with a wonderful party. A few months later the paperback version was released and the first copies arrived in Brisbane and how wonderful it was to finally hold my baby in my hands! I decided another party was needed but this time I needed to pop some real corks! Below are a few photos of the event back in August. I’d like to thank all those who have supported me on my writing journey so far – from all over the world! It means so much to me that you love my stories. I’d like to wish you all the very, very best for 2017 – much love, Roisin.

The blog tour for my novella, Over Your Dead Body, is kicking off today and I was doing up some promotional material over the weekend. This involved me trawling through a number of stock image sites looking for appropriate photos.
Over Your Dead Body – the story of one man’s need to resolve the past so he can have a future.
Over Your Dead Body is the story of Ryan Kennedy and how he came to realise he was gay and the challenges he faced and the choices he made in relation to that realisation. So, naturally enough I was searching for images that involved some male on male action. It was the weekend so of course the kids were in and out of the office, wondering what I was doing and when I was going to be available to play with them. My seven year old son had wandered in a few times, not particularly paying attention to what I was doing but then he came right up beside me and looked at the images on the screen.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
I explained about the blog tour and that I needed to make up a few promotional images in relation to the story.
“But why do you have photos of a man kissing a man?” he asked.
I explained how the story is about a man who is attracted to men. (He understands the concept. When homosexuality is referred to in our house it is in the same context as heterosexuality, it’s just a matter of who you want to be with – whether that’s a man who wants to be with a woman or man who wants to be with a man or woman who wants to be with a woman. It doesn’t matter. However, he hasn’t yet seen a man kissing a man.)
“What happens to the man in the story?” he asked.
I explained how some people don’t accept homosexuality and that this man’s mum and dad didn’t love him any more after they found out he was gay and this had a huge effect on his life.

My son’s face fell and his eyes became sad.
“They didn’t love him any more? he whispered, like that was the worst thing that could ever possibly happen.
“No,” I replied.
My son turned to me, his little face blighted with confusion and sadness for this man in the story.
“And what happens if I love a man when I grow up” he asked, “will you and Daddy still love me?”
I pulled him to me and kissed his little cheek.
“My beautiful boy,” I said, “whether you love a man or you love a woman, me and Daddy will always love you.”
He smiled, threw his arms around me in a monster hug and walked happily out the door.
Over Your Dead Body encompasses all the pain and suffering I have witnessed over the years of friends and acquaintances who have had to face rejection and even abuse by those closest to them, just because they were gay. Ryan eventually comes through it all and finds his happy ending, sadly this is not the case for all.
