What a busy couple of months it’s been.
Omega Writers Book Fair
I had a great time at the Omega Writers Book Fair with an exciting range of other authors, workshops and giveaways. Looking forward to the Book Fair next year.
Supernova Gold Coast
Young Adult Spec Fic authors Lynne Stringer, Adele Jones and I were at Gold Coast Supernova last weekend – under the Rendered Realms banner.
Lynne looked particularly dashing in her Verindon Overlord dress and tiara (the Verindon trilogy). I went as Delvina (Under the Mountain series) and also as Kupanna Mara (Akrad’s Children).
I was excited to have Stone of the Sea the third book in the Under the Mountain series available. I also managed to snag an amethyst crystal that fits in nicely with my Under the Mountain series and hopefully enhances the display. And Lynne had copies of Challenge Accepted available – a charity anthology for the Special Olympics with awesome speculative fiction stories, including one by me, Lynne and Adam Collings.
We enjoyed catching up with other authors like Sam Colbran and Naomi Eccles-Smith (Kinseeker series). Naomi did a brilliant commission of Veridnon’s Sara against a Verindon skyline. While Adele was so fired up that she finished up her spin-off story from the Blaine Colton trilogy on site.
And, of course, it is wonderful to see all the creative and awesome cosplay over the two days of the convention.
We are booked as Rendered Realms at the Oz Comic Con Brisbane in September. So if you’re planning on going, don’t forget to drop in and say hello.
The Sparkly Badgers Easter Egg Hunt!
I’m participating in the Sparkly Badgers Easters Hunt.
The hunt will start on Good Friday, 19th April on Claire Buss’s website. The links will go live on Good Friday. Find the egg on Claire’s website, write down the letter it contains and click the egg to visit the next author. Search for the next egg in the hunt. Once you’ve found all the eggs and collected all the letters, unscramble the anagram and post your entry in the event. (Don’t forget this website). Join the hunt here.
Everyone who takes part will win an ebook of their choice from one of our eggtastic authors. One lucky person will win a chocolate Easter egg and all the ebooks!
Good luck and may the eggs be ever in your favour!
What else am I up to?
I’m currently editing Caverns of the Deep, the fifth and final book in the Under the Mountain series. We’re looking at a May/June release.
So far, four of my books are available to print – Akrad’s Children (Amazon), Heart of the Mountain, Blood Crystal and Stone of the Sea (Amazon & Ingram Spark). Over the next few weeks, I will be working on the print versions of Ruhanna’s Flight & Other Stories and then Shadow Crystals.
Next post – a character interview with Zadeki (from the Under the Mountain series).
Wishing you all a lovely and blessed Easter.
