If you are here, I have discovered your wonderful bookstagram platform and would love to involve you in an exclusive mail-out I'm hosting next month.

A selection of bookstagrammers and bloggers will receive a copy of ESSENCE - the first instalment of my young adult, fantasy series The Essence Chronicles - in exchange for a shout-out and/or review on Instagram and other platforms.

First - let me introduce myself!

My name is Hayley, and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I studied and worked in the film and television industry for five years before pursuing writing as a career.


The Essence Chronicles began as a seed planted so far back as high school, but six years later, I'm ECSTATIC to finally share this story and these characters with the world - fully developed and neatly packaged.

I've always loved collaboration. I'm invested in forming real connections with real people and artists whether it's within an art department, shooting a short film or working to promote my books.

The series has attracted a loyal following already, but as an indie author I'm always on the lookout for new, exciting avenues in which to promote it.

Hopefully you can be one of them!

You can find more on the series below...

When Abbey Shader is summoned to Ethra, a land where human qualities roam free in flesh known as Essences, her life and the universe as she knows it splits open before her.

With the expansive secrets of humanity at her fingertips, Abbey’s strength of will and heart are put to a test no amount of time or meticulous study could have prepared her for.

Left to decide between the comfort of the familiar and the potential enlightenment of the strange, Abbey is thrust into a journey that demands more of her at every turn. She must learn to trust what she sees, and trust what she can’t.

Due to high shipping costs, I am only able to offer a certain number of physical mail-outs.

If you're a kindle reader, let me know, and I can send the eBook to your preferred email address.

'I have read books about vampires, werewolves, fae, witches, and even incubi, but I have never read anything like this. It was so fascinating and refreshing to read something entirely new to me...'
