Book Glut


Okay, yes I'm having a bit of a book glut - but it's my birthday soon and I'm buying some books dammit!!
I've decided to do a catch up on one of my favourite authors J.R. Ward, and though The Black Dagger Brotherhood is by far my fav series, I still want to read the Fallen Angels series - and check out her other pseudonym too (Jessica Bird) which I've been meaning to do for ages... And just so it's not a complete J.R Ward blitz, I grabbed a Kresley Cole novel too.  

Got to love the free postage of The Book Depository...all these books for under 50 Aus dollars.

A Hunger Like No Other: Kresley Cole
An Unforgettable Lady: JessicaBird
Lover Mine: JR Ward
Crave: JR Ward
An Irresistible Bachelor: JR Ward
Envy: JR Ward
Lover Unleashed: JR Ward

Brief update...

~While I'm waiting on the edits for my 3rd gargoyle novel in the Winged & Dangerous series, I have sent off the contract and can not wait to see what cover the brilliant art dept come up with!

~Now that I know I've made it into the Something Wicked This Way Comes anthology, I'm eagerly awaiting news of its release date. And yes, my first (eventual) print book!!!! And my only dragon hero so far =)

~Hopefully some more publishing news soon, but in the meantime I'm still trying to get myself back into the writing mode after feeling like a deflated balloon the last few weeks - anyone got one of those Limitless pills, by chance??? BWG

~Want an insight into the Claytons conference? Go to the Lovecats for an overview =)

Claytons...done and done!!


Well it was a FULL ON three days at the online Claytons Conference and everyone was exhausted by the end of it, but from all reports it was a resounding success! =)
I'll be posting on Friday at the Lovecats about the experience and a bit of an overview. Hope to see you there! ...in the meantime... life intrudes and banal things like housework scream for attention, yes, it needs catching up on big time, oh, and I intend lavishing some attention on my kids!!!! 
And then, back to writing, full steam ahead!

Movie of the month...


LIMITLESS

Okay, this movie had me from the moment the hero was a contracted writer - who was struggling to type even one word. Then he meets his ex-brother-in-law and things start looking up...or down, depending on your perspective, from there. He's given an illegal pill called NZT-48 - and he's gone from the usual brain power percentage (darn it, what is that percentage again???LOL) to using the full one hundred percent capacity.
I won't give the whole story away, but needless to say, being THAT smart apparently clues you in on fighting techniques, recalls long repressed information that suddenly makes sense, and gives you musical abilities in just hours of practise. Putting it like that is sounds kinda corny and silly, but it all came together brilliantly - as long as you're comfortable with the pill popping benefits this movie almost justifies...

Preliminary Cover


Yes, it's only the preliminary cover, but I wanted to share this great cover for volume 1 of Something Wicked This Way Comes. The green reminds me of the Incredible Hulk - very cool!!
If this is preliminary, I can't wait to see what the real cover looks like =))

!!!!CLAYTONS!!!!



As the Romance Writers of Australia conference draws near, those of us not attending look forward instead to the online Claytons conference! 
We've got some fantastic presenters including editors from Ellora's Cave and Samhain, authors such as Tracey O'hara, Eleni Konstantine, Diane Gaston, Michelle Diener, Anna Hackett, Erica Hayes, Natalie Anderson, Sami Lee and Darlene Gardener (phew!!) - and some great writing challenges which include blurbs, synopsis' and short stories. (I'll be looking after the blurbs and short story crits)
This will be an amazing online experience for any RWAus member who wants to participate, and one that *almost* makes up for not attending the real conference. There are lots of cool book prizes, and it will be FUN!!! (And did I mention it's FREE!)
I'm really looking forward to meeting the 50 odd participants =))

New Release: BARON

It's release day for BARON, Dragons of Riddich book 3! So excited to finally see this story out in the world and tell a little more ...
