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

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’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 you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
