Haze is out in the wild

As of yesterday, Haze is out in the wild. Publication day is such a strange combination of excitement and nervousness…a sensation that lasts well beyond publication day, actually.  (Now that I’ve experienced it twice, I figure I can make statements like that.)

My very good mate Rebecca sent me this great shot of her and her family checking out copies of Haze today. Don’t worry, her girls aren’t actually reading it (too young for that content!). Note her hubby is catching up on Shadows first. 🙂

IMG_0547Early response to Haze has been lovely. Here are a couple of reviewers quick off the mark:

Next up for me, aside from working feverishly on Book 3 (title reveal coming soon), will be Voices on the Coast on the Sunshine Coast on June 3 and 4, which I’m looking forward to.

I had a blast at Literati on the Gold Coast last weekend, and met some lovely readers and a bunch of great writers. Here’s me with the lovely LA Larkin at the dinner on Friday night. (Thanks to LA for sharing this one.)

    I loved Shadows but I adored Haze. I already can’t wait for the next installment. Thank you for writing, Paula!

    Hi Paula!
    I came across Shadows by chance on GoodReads, and I’m so happy I did. I love the Rephaim series! It’s one of my favorite.
    I just finished Haze. I read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down.
    Now I’m just sad I’ll have to wait for the next book.
    And of course, I LOVE RAFA!

    By the way I’m Italian and you have a lot of fans in Italy 🙂

      Thanks Angy. 🙂 I’m so happy you’re enjoying the series. And what a coincidence – I love Italy! I’ve been twice and fully intend coming back again soon.

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.

Paula Weston
