Galactic Inferno: release date!!!!!!!!!

It's official! June 13th is the release date for Galactic Inferno, book 2 in my Alien Hunger series.
Here's the blurb:

Ally Grayson believes she’s the last person on Earth after aliens arrived, bringing with them a deadly virus that wiped out mankind.

Somehow surviving the annihilation, she hides in a Sydney house with her dog. She knows she has to leave before the “eyes in the sky” detect her and have her captured, but she never expects an alien to save her and Bonnie from the jaws of a ravenous, feral dog. Never expects to be drawn to Renate, the alien male who seems more human than any man she’s ever known.

She fights an attraction she can’t win, and soon enough she’s in his arms, under his hard, amazing body. Except their unearthly desire might not be enough to keep them together when Renate’s alien comrades close in.

Galactic Inferno: edits done!!

So edits are done (nice light ones so I'm very pleased!) and the blurb has been sent to my new editor! A release date should be announced soon in Ellora's Cave 'coming soon' pages! I'll post the official blurb along with its release date as soon as I know.

I can't wait for this book's release (short novel) - I loved writing Ally and Renate's story (some might recall Renate as being the rather aloof captain of the mother ship). Ally was a heroine who seemed 'normal' in many ways, but she's extraordinary in my eyes, with so many layers. And lets not forget her 'best friend' - Bonnie - her dog... =))

Holiday shots, part 1

So I've finally got my act together and showing a few of my holiday snaps!

Photo one: is the apartments (Lanai) that we stayed at in Mackay, right near Canelands shopping centre and the Blue Lagoon swimming pools and big bucket (kids loved it!). If you look at the tallest apartment, left corner at the top, that's where we stayed. A 3 bedroom penthouse suite that had beautiful views of the river and city, and a huge spa upstais with glass windows - downside, it had some "weird" stuff happening - doors slamming shut, footsteps all night that was especially obvious in the room my husband and I slept in. I remember waking up one night, half asleep, seeing something (wish I could remember exactly) dropping back onto the mattress from lack of sleep - and the door immediately slamming shut.

Photo two: That's my daughter Shannon (14) in her high high heels beside my mum. I had to take the picture for a bit of a laugh. The room on the right is where I slept. The stairs there lead up to the spa.

Photo three: From Macky we took a drive to a few other towns - on of the places we visted was Calen, where I spent a few years in highschool. The burnt out shell in the photo is the once Calen pub. Sadly it had just been renovated. I'd like to say I'd had some drinks in there (like my sister lol) but it never happened...

Photo four: couldn't resist another photo of my new granddaughter. Isn't she cute as a button!!!
