And so, dear friends, the big day has arrived! Four in the Morning has officially been published :-) For now it is available as a Kindle e-book on Amazon.com and I am hoping to publish it in print very soon.

If you would like to download a copy, you can buy it here: http://www.amazon.com/Four-Morning-Story-Break-Heart-ebook/dp/B00WMIVXV8/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1435731312&sr=1-1&keywords=four+in+the+morning+james

If you have read the book already and you would like to post a review on the book, I would be OVER THE MOON! Amazon rates reviews very highly and this will push up the book's rankings. My hope is that this story reaches as many people as possible and that its message, that life is full of second chances and that we are all vulnerable on so many levels, touches the hearts of the world.

Just copy and paste your review into the reviews box on each site and voila, the rankings will climb :-)

A final request… I would love it if you would also share your review on The Good Book Appreciation Society’s Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thegoodbookappreciationsociety/?fref=nf – You can insert a link to the book on Amazon.com at the end of your review by pasting this link in: http://www.amazon.com/Four-Morning-Story-Break-Heart-ebook/dp/B00WMIVXV8/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1435588212&sr=1-1&keywords=four+in+the+morning

And the finally chapter of my book Four in the Morning​ has been posted! I am so excited that I have reached my goal in the nick of time!

Please read (and please vote) for the final chapter (plus acknowledgements) to push its rankings up. My dream is to be able to crowdfund the cash to publish it in print this year.

"Sometimes the heart needs more time to accept what the mind already knows.

It was still dark outside. The moonlight pierced its way through the clouds, fighting against the approaching morning light.

Claudia checked the time. It was four in the morning.

Alex’s mobile phone had been vibrating with alerts for most of the evening and Claudia had slept restlessly, wondering who could be trying to reach him so late into the night..."

Claudia’s father had returned home and Kyle and Ross had gone back to school. Claudia had begun the arduous process of packing her life into boxes in preparation for her move out to the holiday house with the children. The weeks ahead became a series of secret, stolen moments for Claudia and Alex while their normal lives played out in the background. And those stolen moments were fraught with tension, the fear that they might be discovered and t...

So, in exactly 3 days my book Four in the Morning goes on sale on Amazon as a Kindle e-book (cannot tell you how excited I am to be at this point!). If you would like to pre-order a copy, especially if you did not follow the story on JukePop Serials and want to read it all in one go, you can pre-order it here and you will be among the first to receive your copy on the 1st of July: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WMIVXV8/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=26YMP0YPG3QIX&coliid=I37H5PPUQFJZRR

For those of you who have taken the time to read the story and would like to support me one last time by writing a review (long or short) on Amazon on the 1st of July, I would be over the moon grateful. Your review will really help push up the book's rankings on Amazon. Please email me at phillipa@rpbc.co.za if you're keen and I will send you the links.

Finally, and this is a HUGE request, I am short about 60 votes from hitting #1 on Jukepop this month. All I need is 3 people who haven't voted for the book on Jukepop to click here and vote on every chapter (it will take you less than 5 minutes). I would be thrilled if I could have my book launch on Amazon AND be at #1 on Jukepop in the month I completed the book. Here is the Jukepop link if you're keen to help smile emoticon http://www.jukepop.com/home/read/6269?chapter=0&sl=960

Thank you to each of you for your support in bringing my book into the light and I hope that it will touch each of you in a small (or big) way XXXX

It's chapter posting time! And there are only two more to go after this. Three weeks until my book goes on sale on Amazon, eeeek!

Please read and comment if you like (and please remember to vote). The book is still oscillating between #3 and #4 on Jukepop's top 30 :-)

Thank you to each of you who are reading my book, I am deeply grateful!

Here is the link to this week's chapter (if you have fallen behind, just scroll back chapter by chapter from this one):

On the book's web site: http://fourinthemorning.co.za/chapter-21/

"Claudia checked her speedometer. It read one hundred and seventy kilometres per hour. In an eighty zone. On a euphoric high, she was on her way to meet Alex and were it not for a fear of incarceration she would have stepped down harder on the pedal.

Alex was standing outside the house waiting for her, catching raindrops on his tongue. The thunder rumbled in the distance and Claudia walked up to him with her arms outstretched and they hugged and kissed and breathed into each other, savouring their precious moment in time."...

Chapter 20 of my book Four in the Morning has just been published :-) Thank you to each of you (again) for voting and keeping the story in Jukepop's Top 30!

"Darkness. A strip of cloth tied around the head, blotting out the light. Patterns and shapes weave their way through the thin lines of intermeshed thread but until the blindfold is removed, the world on the other side remains fuzzy and indistinct.

Standing outside a house, listening to the noises emanating from the four walls that enclose those who live behind them, sifting through clues, signs and symbols, we think that it is possible to construct a picture of what is going on behind those closed doors. We paint our own pictures. We sign our names at the bottom. We frame them. But those pictures are merely an artist’s impression of what we believe to be real.

Claudia dialled her sister-in-law Sophia’s number. They had not spoken since the day Andrew had arrived to collect Gareth’s belongings from the house. Sophia had not judged Claudia in the same way that the rest of the family had judged her. But there was so much that had been left unsaid."

"Uneasiness. It creeps in under the skin and closes its icy fingers around the heart’s tender arteries and pinches until the pulsating rhythm slows down, and then slowly, very slowly, the blood runs cold.

The mind has an uncanny way of prompting us to sit up and take notice when something is not quite right.

Gareth’s parents were bitter and angry. They were trapped in their heart wrenching denial and clung to the sadness like a tick clings to its host, drawing on its life force until, swollen and bloated, it capitulates and falls to the ground in a state of self-digesting gluttony."

Another Sunday morning reading alert! Chapter 19 of my book Four in the Morning​ has been published online :-)

Please remember to vote when you read a chapter as every vote brings me closer to raising the funds to publish the book. It's just one little click :-)
