Shimmer launch, UK release, guests posts, reviews…

It’s been a busy few weeks, with Shimmer releasing in Australia/New Zealand and the UK. Here’s quick wrap-up of what I’ve been up to.

Shimmer Australian launch
I had such a great night last Thursday at Riverbend Books, when the fabulous Marianne de Pierres and I sat down for a relaxed chat as part of the official Australian launch for Shimmer.

We covered a broad range of topics, from the appeal of angel mythology to the challenges of writing ‘hot’ scenes. I always enjoy chatting with Marianne (with or without an audience), and I loved the chance to meet readers and celebrate with my always supportive family and friends.

Thanks to the great crowd who came along on the night (so many of you bought books – and not just mine!). Thanks again to Marianne and Riverbend Books (especially Dave), and Text Publishing for making it happen (thanks Steph!).

Guest posts
I’ve had a couple of guest posts this week, as part of Shimmer’s release:

  • Kids’ Book Review : where I talk about why I chose to tell the Rephaim story as a series
  • Sister Spooky : 20 random questions
  • Wondrous Reads : an in-depth Q&A including questions about THAT scene in Shimmer (warning: some spoilers if you haven’t read Haze and Shimmer)
  • Dark-Readers : fun guest post featuring bonus details about Rafa and Jude

And a few early reviews of Shimmer:

Thanks to everyone who’s sent messages and left comments after reading Shimmer. I really appreciate it.

Now, back to writing Burn (Rephaim #4).

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 Brisbane 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.
