Shadows is off to press

Shadows: Book 1 of the Rephaim series has gone to print.

I’m not sure I have the words to truly capture how that feels (some writer I am). But there’s definitely a lot of gratitude and joy in there. There may have been a few tears.

I’ll experience a whole other melting pot of emotions between now and the release date (2 July) – and beyond – but right now, I’m off to crack open a wine and celebrate.

So, here is the FINAL cover of Shadows. It’s pretty awesome.

About Me

Iโ€™m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, Iโ€™m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If youโ€™re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. Thereโ€™s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
