First LIBERATED character poster revealed!

Over on Facebook I put it out to the fans to decide who they would like to see first in a new and final (ahhh cry!) line of images for the Guardian Series. I’m shocked and happy to say Blue has won! There will be more reveals to come. The choices are: Mellea, Leo, Noran, Doctor, Anrella, Demmi and Soren. Who do you want o see next?

The new character images are being released early to meet up with new promo materials being launched at Gold Coast Supanova!


Heading to Readers and Writers Down Under Tomorrow!

I’m out on the open road tomorrow, heading for the Gold Coast to prepare for RWDU 2015! This is my first time at the event as an attending author. I enjoyed myself so much last year as a guest I wanted to bring my books so badly!!

I can’t wait to meet everyone and there will be a big blog and video coming over the Easter break of what went down!

Talk soon!


Limited Copies of Divided at RWDU

Hello there!

For all those attending the Readers and Writers Down Under event on the Gold Coast next Saturday, I just wanted to give you a heads up. Createspace, one of my printers, has informed me that I won’t be getting my extra copies of Divided before this event, leaving me with a mere handful.

I did order them with the intent that they arrive before Supanova Gold Coast, not RWDU, but I had my fingers crossed. So if you are thinking of getting a copy of Divided please let me know ASAP, and I will put a copy aside for you.

It will be first in, best dressed if not! 😀

(Pray that they arrive before Supanova! No one wants to see an author cry, it’s really ugly.)

Also, the voting for the RWDU event has now closed. Thank you so much everyone for voting and I can’t wait to see what happens and enjoy the event! Huzzah!


Last chance to VOTE!

Hey everyone!

Voting for the RWDU Reader’s Choice Awards ends on the 21st March at 12pm EST. It’s you last chance to get those votes in (or vote again!!) ❤

BOUNDNomThank you so much to everyone for being such an amazing support so far! The event itself is on the 28th of March on the Gold Coast. It’s a physical awards night held after the event, at a red carpet night! It’s an amazing opportunity to share BOUND with book lovers!

—- Info from previous posts if you missed the deal:

I’ve been nominated for two categories in the RWDU Reader’s choice awards. Number 16: Favourite Young Adult Read and Number 18: Favourite Sci-Fi / Fantasy Read. You can vote more than once so if you have already, feel free to vote again!

A little bit of news…

Hi everyone!

I just got a letter in the mail to say that Bound was given a Highly Commended in the FAW Christina Stead Award presented by the Fellowship of Australian Writers!

It really is an amazing honour and I’m a little bit amazed BOUND made it so far, considering it was probably up against some pretty strong competition! It also makes me feel pretty nifty as an author.

Unfortunately as the ceremony is in April and because of commitments (RWDU in March and Supanova in April) I won’t be able to physically get to Victoria from Queensland [without my work killing me] to receive it. However, it will be posted and I will show some pictures! Squee!
