Blackstone Resurrection is available. 

Hi everyone. Apologies for writing this post on my phone, so I’ll keep it short. I’m in hospital at the moment after undergoing a second thyroid operation on Tuesday. The first one was in mid August. In both operations the histology was positive for thyroid cancer. The good news is that I’m pretty sure that my fabulous surgeon (really, he’s a rockstar) got all of it out so this should be the end of it. I still have to ask myself what gives. Seems since 2015 my body has declared war on me, and I still have an operation on my right shoulder looming later this year or early next year. Which is why I’m thrilled to announce that Blackstone Resurrection is available at all retailers. And I must admit that it’s a huge relief to me that I published it on Monday night before going into hospital. Now all I have to do is concentrate on recovery and thinking about writing another book. A stand-alone book, I think. After three trilogies in a row I’m cured of writing more trilogies for now. 😂 LOL.

Again apologies to all of you who have waited so long for this third Blackstone book. Please click on the menu links above to find it at your preferred retailer. 🙂

  1. I am so sorry to hear that Niki! I am a huge fan and can’t wait to read the final book, I know it’ll be amazing as always. Please keep us updated on your recovery ❤️ And I think you’re the rock star with how you’ve coped with everything over the past year.

  2. Hi Emma. Thanks for your lovely words of support. I’ll keep you guys updated on my recovery. Thanks so much for your interest. Just to clarify, Blackstone Resurrection is the final book, but I’m planning a novella or even just a long epilogue like I did in the Driftwood Trilogy. If I do an epilogue I’ll add it to Resurrection directly and ask Amazon to sent updated copies to all who have already purchased the book. Either way, it won’t cost money for anyone to get the updated version or the novella.
    Wishing you a wonderful day. 😀


  3. Hi I know resurrection is the final book, I hadn’t started reading it yet when I wrote that post to you. I’ve only read about 20 pages so far as I’ve been working so much the past few days. I can’t wait for my day off on Sunday to binge read all of it 🙂

    • Hi Emma. Sorry for the misunderstanding. Thanks for clearing things up, Melissa.
      Enjoy your reading on Sunday, Emma. There’s nothing I enjoy more than binge reading until I have to rinse my eyes with ice water to be able to continue. Lol. Happy weekend to both you and Melissa. 😀


  4. Hi Niki, so sorry for your health problems but I’ll do what you’re doing and put all my faith in your rockstar doctor…so mending and writing your stand alone book is what you have to keep you busy. I’ve loved reading all three of your trilogies…Stefan & Marcelle were my favorite people in the world until I met Aidan & Lily…well now I have to wait for you to write your stand alone…and of course hope to God that I can find other books to keep me busy until your next one is ready for us. Please take care of yourself and take it easy until you’re well and able to work again.

    • Hi Sandra. Thank you for your kind words. I’m recovering well from the surgery and will be going for an iodine scan next week to see if they got it all.
      I’m thrilled that you’ve enjoyed all three my trilogies and even followed me as I changed genres to write Aidan and Lily’s story. I hope to create a new couple that you’ll enjoy just as much. I already have two characters percolating in my head, though they don’t have names yet. Yes, even though I’m resting at the moment and not writing, my imagination is never quiet.
      Thanks for commenting and I hope you have a great Sunday. 😀


  5. Hi Niki I just want to say how much I loved the third blackstone book. A final chapter would be good just to see what ended up happening with Lilies friends but even without that I found it a satisfying ending and as usual a totally gripping story that had me hooked from start to finish. It was definitely worth the wait. I hope that the iodine scan went well and that you’re recovering ok 🙂

    • Hi Emma, I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed the third Blackstone book. I’ll get that final chapter out before I start a new manuscript and I’ll announce it here as soon as it’s ready.
      My iodine scan showed that there was still quite a bit of residual thyroid cells after my surgery so I underwent radioactive iodine ablation the weekend before last. It was quite a surreal experience because they give you a capsule of radioactive iodine 131 that kills off the thyroid cells but makes you highly radioactive for three to four days. I had to spend that time in an isolation ward in hospital until my levels had normalized. It made me think a lot about Aidan and how it must feel to know that your presence is a danger to others. The nurses didn’t even enter the room and would talk to me from behind the door of the ward. A mosquito that managed to get into the ward dropped dead right after drinking a bit of my blood. Freaky, for sure.
      But all jokes aside, I didn’t feel very well and the fact that I was alone in the ward with just my phone and the TV for company wasn’t as restful as I had hoped it would be. I had taken my laptop into the ward hoping to get work done, but in the end the brain fog was working against me, because I had already been off my thyroid meds for a month before the scan.
      The good news is that the scan after the treatment showed that the iodine had been taken up by the right tissues so now I just have to wait six months to the next scan to see if I’m clear. And I’ve been back on my thyroid replacement meds for about eleven days and already my brain is feeling much clearer. Despite my plans to leave everything until next year, I found myself opening the manuscript to take a look at the Blackstone Resurrection again and see how I can improve it some more. Do you know that there isn’t a single sex scene in the whole book? Jeesh, how did that happen? 😉 And at least that final scene should have been a good strong scene but I ran out of time. So once I’ve been through everything again I will put out an updated version of the book and Amazon will automatically push the updated version to your devices, free of charge.
      Thank you for commenting and for your good wishes, Emma.
      I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

    Hi Niki I just came onto the website to check in and see if anything new had been posted. I can’t believe that was 4 months ago that you wrote that reply, I can’t believe I didn’t write a response back, that is mad the whole radioactive thing. Really is surreal. And I’m so glad to hear that the brain fog had cleared and everything was looking better. Only two months now until the next scan. As for the book I didn’t actually realise about the sex scenes until you pointed that out lol, didn’t matter to me personally as I was more obsessed as to where the story was going. And once again I still think it was a brilliant final book and I really mean that, especially as you wrote it in a rush. Please keep us updated with how your doing, I hope that you and your cats are keeping well and all is good 🙂


    • Hi Emma, apologies for my late reply. Thanks for your kind words. My health and energy levels are improving every day. Yes, not looking forward to the next scan. Will have to go off my thyroid meds for at least a month before the scan, which will destroy my energy levels again. 😟 And the scan itself is rather uncomfortable seeing as I suffer from claustrophobia (a curse I share with Lily) so really not looking forward to it.
      With ref to the sex scenes, I actually only noticed afterwards that most of the sex scenes were ‘fade to black’ instead of my usual style. I originally attributed it to my state of mind at the time, but upon revising the book I discovered that there weren’t really any areas where it felt right to insert a steamy scene. The subject matter of the book, which lets face it was rather tragic at times, just didn’t allow it somehow. Anyway, we already know that Aidan and Lily are great together.
      Thanks so much for coming back to me and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
