Holiday & New Moon

Had a weekend away at Rockhampton where hubby raced his gokart. I did lots of freehand writing for the single title story 'Believe' to hopefully reach my 45K mark, but mostly I explored the area where I intend to set a short story - perfect setting for something paranormal with the 6ft tall dead as dead grass and dry river beds. Anyway, the first night there two of my daughters and I went to see New moon. Shannon who is eleven and devours paranormal books, wasn't fussed at all. For her it was boring with too little action. Teagan who is nineteen and a hopeless romantic, loved it. So did I! There's something about werewolves (particularly in ah, human form LOL) that makes the old heart tick faster...
Rating for New Moon
Shannon: 6/10
Teagan: 9/10
Me: 8/10

LOL. My three went to see it yesterday, and the two girls are now firmly in Camp Jacob! I'll wait until they get the DVD!!

Ooh I can't wait to see it! Hopefully hubby and I are doing the drive-ins on Sat!

I saw it yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I haven't as yet seen it, but I'm looking forward to it. I absolutely loved Twilight.
The setting sounds eerie, dry grass and river beds. Hmmm, wondering what is hiding in that grass?

Christina, I don't blame them. I've been in camp Jacob since book 1 (before movie), I'm disappointed actually where the books head! =(
Enjoy it Rachael, I'm sure you will!
Eleni, glad I"m not the only adult who enjoyed it!
Suzanne, you'll love it too, I'm sure. Yes, this setting really stirred my imagination for next book!

Cover Reveal & Pre-Order of As I Am

I just adore this cover for my latest book, As I Am. This one is sooo close to my heart, with the heroine suffering from the same condit...
