Hi – a quick update of happenings in January.
Lakwi’s Lament Launch
I’m thrilled to be hosting a e-launch of Lakwi’s Lament on Facebook , Saturday 4th February at 2-4 pm (Queensland time, UTC +10).
There will be competitions, giveaways and glitter (well, maybe not the glitter). We had a hoot at the Heart of the Mountain launch last August. This time I will be joined by other fantastic authors. I would be chuffed you and your friends can join us – to accept the invitation follow this link.
Lakwi’s Lament: a short story (By the Light Books, Jan 2017) follows the adventures of Princess Lakwi. Suitable for ages 12+ it is set in the world of The Herbalist’s Daughter & the Akrad Legacy Series. It is aimed at a younger audience than my other stories, though entertaining for older readers too.
Lakwi would love to read the books in the Royal library, but girls aren’t allowed inside. Her passion for books attracts the attention of her dashing older brother, Prince Rokkan, and her suave cousin, Lord Haka. Will her drive for knowledge lead her into more trouble than she can handle?
Lakwi’s Lament originally appeared in Like a Girl Plan Anthology (Far Horizons, 2015). Like a Girl celebrates and supports education and opportunities for girls and women. Like a Girl anthology is also available on Amazon, with stories from a range of Australian and International authors.
My stories and books can be accessed at Amazon Central page .
Apart from getting ready for the launch of Lakwi’s Lament – I’ve been participating once again in the Month of Poetry (see here) – writing a poem each day in the month of January. I’ve also deep in edits of Akrad’s Children (Book 1 of the Akrad Legacy Series) with view of publication later this year.
This coming Saturday I’m attending a workshop by award winning Karen Tyrrell – author of Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness, Bailey Beats the Blah, Songbird Superhero and other books.
On February 11-14 – I’ll be joining with over a 100 authors will be showcasing their books on Facebook at the Our Books Are Not Free. You can participate here
The sequel to Heart of the Mountain – Blood Crystal is also in progress, as well as a couple of other short story ideas. Watch this space!
Looking forward to seeing you all at the launch
