A few photos from the Burn launch

As you’ll see from the photos below, I had an awesome night when Marianne de Pierres and I launched Burn at Riverbend Books in Bulimba with another of our annual chats.

We had a great crowd and the buzz was fantastic. Thank you again to Marianne, the team at Riverbend Books (especially Vicky, Pauline and Lachlan), Text Publishing (especially Steph Speight), and everyone who came along and made it such a great night.

First look at Burn (Rephaim #4): a teaser

It’s only a month now until Burn – the fourth and final instalment in The Rephaim series – is released in Australia and New Zealand (24 June 2015 – release dates for other parts of the world are below).

Hard to believe we’ve come to the end already.

I’ve had quite a few requests for a teaser, so…here it is! (Click on link or thumbnail)

Back cover blurb:

Gaby remembers everything.

For a year she believed she was a backpacker chilling out in Pandanus Beach. Working at the library. Getting over the accident that killed her twin brother.

Then Rafa came to find her and Gaby discovered her true identity as Gabe: one of the Rephaim. Over a hundred years old. Half angel, half human, all demon-smiting badass—and hopelessly attracted to the infuriating Rafa.

Now she knows who faked her memories, and how—and why it’s all hurtling towards a massive showdown between the forces of heaven and hell.

More importantly, she remembers why she’s spent the last ten years wanting to seriously hurt Rafa.

Australia/New Zealand: 24 June 2015 (Text Publishing)

Shadows gets a new look for Turkish edition

Shadows is about to make its debut in Turkey in a Turkish translation published by Yabanci Yayinlari (I’m in good company – among its excellent list of authors is fellow Aussie Jessica Shirvington).

Here’s the cover (which makes me grin every time I look at it):

Turkish edition

Shadows (aka Golgeler) is out in Turkey 16 January 2015. (And yes, I get a buzz seeing it in a language other than English!)

Shimmer release dates for Australia, NZ and UK

Here they are, confirmed release dates for Shimmer (Rephaim #3):

  • Australia and New Zealand (Text Publishing): 25 June
  • United Kingdom (Indigo): 3 July

(Indigo also distributes the Rephaim series – English language version – to a number of countries in Europe and Asia and other selected parts of the world.)

ShimmerI’m really excited for you guys to read Shimmer. There’s a still a bit of tweaking to do (mostly line edits) but it feels like it’s pretty much there now.

Meanwhile, I’ve also been busy working on Burn (Rephaim #4) and I’m over half-way into the first draft. This will be the final book in the series and a lot of threads need to come together (and work!). So far so good… 🙂

Shimmer blurb and the title of Book 4

Text Publishing has come up with a fantastic early cover blurb for Shimmer (out in July), which I’m busting to share. So here it is (warning – there’s a spoiler if you haven’t read Haze):

ShimmerGaby thought her life couldn’t get more complicated.

She’s almost used to the idea that she’s not the nineteen-year-old backpacker she thought she was. She can just about cope with being one of the Rephaim – a 140-year-old half-angel – whose memories have been stolen. She’s even coming to grips with the fact that Jude, the brother she’s mourned for a year, didn’t die at all.

But now Rafa—sexy, infuriating Rafa—is being held, and hurt, by Gatekeeper demons. And Gaby has to get the bitterly divided Rephaim to work together, or Rafa has no chance at all.

It’s a race against time – and history. And it may already be too late.

And now, drumroll for the title of Book 4 of the Rephaim series (the last one)…

Burn

Hope you like it. 🙂

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.
