Caelum’s Bookshelf – May / June 2020

So, I snuck into Caelum’s room while our favourite space deer was asleep, and got the low-down on some new books that are coming out in the next month or so. Some of these are written by authors I know, and some are books I’ve been waiting to get my hands on. Have a look,… Continue reading Caelum’s Bookshelf – May / June 2020

Taking A Breath

My alarm went off at 6.30am. At least, I think it did, because one talent I’ve developed during the Covid-19 lockdown has been the superhuman ability to turn my alarm off without actually waking up. By pure luck, in my zombie fumbling, I managed to push the sleeve of my pyjama top almost all the… Continue reading Taking A Breath

ARR2020 Wrap-Up

Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to attend A Romantic Rendezvous, an author signing run by the Australian Romance Reader’s Association. I’ve been in the past as a reader, but this was the first time I’d had an opportunity to be on the author’s side of the desk. In this uncertain time, with the very… Continue reading ARR2020 Wrap-Up

Tobias Hard Copy Sneek Peak

Yesterday I received the first batch of print copies for Tobias’ Spark. (Excuse my lived in mess in the background... ahem. Author life!) I’m so excited to finally have these in my hand. As much as I adore my Kindle and the whole ebook industry, there will never be anything quite like the feeling you… Continue reading Tobias Hard Copy Sneek Peak

Welcome to 2020, Everything is on Fire

As I sit here writing this, Australia is burning. Even though today is overcast, I'm looking out the window at a smoke-stained sky, and every sunset tints the world orange. The sheer size and destructive capabilities of this fire (fires) are beyond comprehension. The footage and imagery coming out of the worst affected areas is… Continue reading Welcome to 2020, Everything is on Fire

Merry Christmas, 2019

I hope wherever you are, you're enjoying the festive season in whatever way brings you joy. Things have been very busy here, with the end of school term and the run-up to the big day - tomorrow, yikes! I've shopped, I've baked, I've wrapped and labelled, and I think I'm ready. Writing time has been… Continue reading Merry Christmas, 2019

NanoWriMo Wrap-Up

Well, that's it! November is well and truly over and with it, NanoWriMo. I'll admit now, I was pleasantly surprised at the results. I went into the project thinking 50,000 words in a month was probably doable, but it's also coming into that time of year when things start to go a little haywire -… Continue reading NanoWriMo Wrap-Up

In Flight

Rain poured down, splattering so hard against the windshield it was almost impossible for the wipers to do their job. I squinted, ducking down slightly in a futile effort to better see where we were going. It was half past eight in the morning, but the clouds were so heavy it might as well have… Continue reading In Flight
