Coming Soon! New Book! Into the Dark!

June 12, 2014 at 11:52 am (Magic, News and updates, Publishing) (, , , , , )

ImageOn June 27, I’ll be launching Into the Dark, the sequel to Into the Mists, at an online launch with magical author Felicity Pulman, so feel free to join us…

Into the Dark…

A best friend. A forever love. A promise… A betrayal. An ultimatum. A choice…

Carlie coped with moving from her home in Sydney, Australia to a small village in England to live with a stranger. She battled her way through the mists she thought would drown her, and emerged transformed. She was even starting to think she’d survive the death of her parents. But now an old diary, which promises to reveal the mystery of her mother, threatens to tear her world apart. How will the words she reads affect her? Will she wish the truth had died with her mum? And what is the connection to her own life hidden within the pages?

In the second book of the gripping Into the Mists Trilogy, a new relationship with her grandmother is opening Carlie’s soul to the energy and power of the earth. A new friend is opening her mind to the magic and potential within her. And a new love is opening her heart to the sweetest enchantment of all. Yet betrayal hovers around her, and she will face an ultimatum, a sacrifice and a cruel choice that might just break her.

Will Carlie find the courage to go into the darkness of her own heart and seek the wisdom and strength she needs to survive, or will the tragedies and the pain of her life break her into a million little pieces?

My first novel…

May 30, 2013 at 9:12 pm (Magic, News and updates, Publishing) (, , , , , )

Cover_Mists_smallOn May 11 I released my first novel, Into the Mists, with an awesome online launch with amazing artist and author Selina Fenech, who was releasing her new book Hope’s Reign, the sequel to Memory’s Wake.

Despite my computer meltdown we had a wonderful time chatting to people from around the world, and giving away lots of beautiful prizes.

In the weeks since, I’ve been so blown away by the amazing response to Into the Mists – so much so that perhaps I’ll put my next non-fiction book on hold to write the sequel… Things to ponder!

About the book: Enter the swirling mists of an enchanted land, andopen your heart to the mystery…

Carlie has the perfect life. A wonderful family and a best friend she adores. A house by the beach so she can go surfing after school. A clever, rational mind and big dreams of becoming a lawyer. A future she’s excited about and can’t wait to begin.

But in a split second her perfect life shatters, and she is sent to the other side of the world to live with a stranger. In this mystical, mist-drenched new land, she is faced with a mystery that will make her question everything she’s ever known about her parents, her life and her very self. A dark secret that made her mother run away from home as a teenager. An old family friend who is not what he seems. A woman in blue who she’s not convinced is real. A shadowy black cat that she’d swear is reading her mind. A deserted old cottage she can’t always find. And a circle of wild-haired witches who want her to join their ranks.

Will she have the courage to journey into the mists, and into her own heart, to discover the truth? And can she somehow weave together a life that she’ll want to live – or will she give up and allow despair to sweep her away from the world forever?

The book will be distributed nationally, and is also available from Amazon and other international retailers, as a paperback and an ebook, and from SereneConneeley.com.

“Cannot put down Serene Conneeley’s novel, Into the Mists… It’s so compelling and beautifully realised – so much magic – absolutely recommended!”
Lucy Cavendish, author
