Countdown: Day 8

The countdown continues!

Countdown: Day 9

Something is coming! Follow the countdown this week and enjoy quotes from DIVIDED!

DIVIDED cover is coming!

ImageD is for DIVIDED! Ooohhh~

This week I received my first draft of my book cover for DIVIDED from the very talented author AND graphic designer K.A. Last (Kila Designs) and I am ooober excited. I know ooober isn’t a word but there are no words for the feeling.

I’m considering opening pre-orders for DIVIDED so that those who are really interested but won’t be able to make Brisbane Supanova can get their hands on a copy early!

I know I mentioned wanting to go to Oz Comic Con in Brisbane. Unfortunately the idea came to me too late (even though it’s in September) so I won’t be getting a table. But I will be in attendance checking it out for next year! Let me know if you’re thinking about going too!


Don’t forget I have some events coming up! Check out  for details!

June Update

Mellea by Me 🙂

Hi all!

June is here and that means it’s winter in Australia. This year was a pretty hot summer making the wind extra nippy when you’re not used to it! I do enjoy the cold though as it motivates me to read more. For some reason. And perhaps even write more, which will be a relief to hear to those waiting for DIVIDED. 

The manuscript is currently with my editor and I have a paper copy myself which is going through edits. The December release date is still good with advanced copies HOPEFULLY available for those attending Brisbane Supanova. I know December feels like forever away, so I do have a small surprise. The cover for DIVIDED will be sneakily going up on the goodreads profile for the book in a few days. I say sneakily because it’s not the ‘official’ cover yet, but it’s very, very, very close. Like only very small changes will be made. I’ve done the artwork for this cover and the pretty details will be done by my graphic designer!

Some News:

If you are a Brisbane resident and you’re not doing anything on the 12th of July, come see me at the Victoria Point Library as I will be doing a Q&A forum and it would be so sad to be talking to like 3 people. It’s free, you simply have to call and book your plastic chair. 

If you live in the Moreton Bay Region, BOUND is now available to borrow at the Caboolture & Arana Hills Libraries! SWEET!

Blurb for DIVIDED

Here is the work-in-progress blurb for DIVIDED (The Guardians #2) I’m really excited to share this book with the fans that have supported BOUND so far. I really think they’re going to like where the story is going – or at least I hope!!
