Shimmer – teaser chapters!

It’s less than a month now until Shimmer hits shelves in Australia and New Zealand on 25 June (with the UK edition soon after on 3 July), so now feels like a good time for a teaser.

Here are two early chapters from the Text Publishing edition. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚

(WARNING: there are spoilers, so if you haven’t read Haze, don’t click!)

    Is there a way to pre order shimmer from Australia or New Zealand and shipped to the United States… I read the 2 chapters and i’m dying to have the book ASAP!!! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Maylene,
      Obviously, my North American publisher would love you to wait, but if you REALLY can’t (and I’m assuming you’ve read the first two books), you may be able to pre-order for O/S delivery from my Australian publisher: ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Maylene says:

        I couldn’t wait. Thank you for sending the link for pre-order, i’ve already purchased the book and of course i’ve read the first 2. LOL ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. paulaweston says:

          Happy to help! Hope you enjoy Shimmer as much as the first two. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Alexandra says:

    I genuinely have the day off work to read Shimmer ๐Ÿ™‚ Can not wait, these are one of my favourite series of all time, thanks Paula!

    1. paulaweston says:

      Thanks Alexandra. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you enjoy it (and the day off).

  3. Place says:

    1. paulaweston says:

      And there are still some surprises in there for you… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reblogged this on Inside My Worlds: R.L.Sharpe and commented:
    I love this series so much, can’t wait to read Shimmer!

  6. Oh.My.Goodness.
    I can hardly wait to get my hands on a copy of this when it is released. I will be torn between reading it slowly to savour it…. And ripping through it to find out what happens!
    Well done Paula – this is one of my all time fave series.

    1. paulaweston says:

      Thank you so much. I hope you enjoy Shimmer. (It’s such a scary time before a new book comes out…) ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

Paula Weston
