Read an Excerpt

I took off down a dirt ridge that ran along a culvert which brought water out of the town. The stench of sewer was ripe as we roared through the open space. When we reached the river the woman said, “That way, towards the highway.” I turned the bike at the top of the hill, my bare leg glowing in their headlights. On my thigh the thick ridge of a scar from the last time I got shot stood out puckered and pink.

Two scooters left, one with two guys on it. I wanted to send them into the sewage that sulked by but there was no way… unless I got off the bike and faced these ignorant fucks right there. I revved the engine watching their approach.


“What are you doing? We need to go!” the woman on the back of my bike said, squeezing me around the belly.


“Do they have guns?” I asked.


“Yes!” she squealed. “Come on.” She pushed on me. “What are you doing?”


I revved the engine and this time let it catch sending us shooting along the dirt road past the neatly lined crops. I sped up headed for the tree line, my engine roaring. We hit a bump and got some air; I felt the breath rock in my lungs, my heart jump in my throat.

 About Sydney

So who’s Sydney Jamesson?

Seldom does a writer appear out of the mist, fully formed and equipped to introduce the world to their ‘perfect’ prose. More often than not it has taken years and, in the case of Sydney Jamesson, decades to come to the point where she can say: “I’m ready. This is it, I’m done!”

Now is that time.

She has always scribbled things down; in her home is one enormous waste paper basket full of discarded phrases, opening lines and pieces of dialogue that have hit her like lightening in the middle of the night or whilst parked up at a set of traffic lights.

She has worked in Insurance, Fashion and in advertising as a Copywriter and Commercial Journalist and loved every minute of it. For the past 15 years she has been an English Teacher. But, for as long as she can remember, she has lived with The Story of Us in her head.

The fact Elizabeth Parker is an English teacher should come as no surprise: novelists write, initially, about what they know …

Yet, she confesses, Elizabeth is not her but rather that young, sensitive and naïve woman we all were or still are.

So that’s her, furiously typing away until the early hours, creating an epic tale that covers an 18 month period; taking three novels to unveil the intricacies of a 21stcentury fairy tale.

TouchStone for play is just the beginning …

[Cover Reveal] Girls Are Players by Ingrid Seymour

Girls Are Players by Ingrid Seymour
(G.A.P. #2)
Publication date: December 4th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Jessica Norton is a villain in the body of a gorgeous, rich, college girl. She cheats, lies, plays with people’s feelings, and purposely breaks unsuspecting hearts to avenge a personal loss. She’s the kind of girl people love to hate—even if it’s just because she has it all. Except . . . she doesn’t have it all. What she wants most is the love of her high school sweetheart, Taylor Drennon, the guy who got away, the one who left without telling her why and caused all her bitterness.

Not surprisingly, Jessica’s evil has made her a pariah. Alone, without friends or Taylor’s love, her college life is a nightmare. She’s haunted by her own mistakes and drowning in lack of direction. Something needs to change. So when the first opportunity to turn her life around presents itself, she takes it. Home for Christmas break, Jessica runs into Taylor. His unexpected friendliness seems like an invitation to rekindle their love. Inspired by a drastic idea that will both distance her from her heinous reputation and pull her closer to Taylor, she decides to transfer to OSU where he attends under a football scholarship.

Confident she can regain his heart, Jessica reenters Taylor’s life with a splash. Failing to naturally lure him closer, she is then forced to rely on her old games and underhanded scheming. Though Jessica’s heart is in the right place, it is hidden from Taylor by her blunders.  More than once their powerful chemistry takes control, leading Jessica to believe she’s winning. But, it’s a hot and cold affair, and she’s not the only one to blame for their stormy love. If Jessica can only coax Taylor into explaining why he doesn’t want her, maybe she could finally walk away from him for good, maybe she could finally be happy.
