I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be attending RARE2020 in Edinburgh next year! The dates are June 26-27th which THANKFULLY coincides with my kids’ two-week school holidays so we could even consider it (my daughter will be in her final year and these holidays are just before the midyear exams). I need to plan the whole trip, but at the moment it looks like I’ll be taking my kids because a trip to Europe from Australia is the trip of a lifetime, right? 😉 Well, that and there’s NO way my daughter would let me go without her LOL and my son is suuuuuper excited as well. They’re old enough to explore the city by themselves during the signing, but I’m hoping we can squeeze in some sightseeing after even though the trip is going to be extremely short and jam-packed.
I want to see EVERY country in Europe but obviously that’s not possible on this trip. Or probably ever, given I live on the opposite side of the planet. 😛 But I’m seriously STOKED to be invited and attending RARE2020. It’s going to be a huge event – a gazillion fabulous authors from all genres. Reader’s are in for an absolute treat!!
I will post more information when I have it. I’m not certain about pre-orders yet, or any finer details yet. I have a LOT to organise first, but fear not. I will be yelling it from the rooftops when I know. So please stay tuned!!
Release day for The Hate You Drink is getting closer!!! I’m aiming for May 23rd but that’s depending on a few factors. But I will keep you all updated if the date changes. It will be in KU first and then it will go to other retailers.
We’re slowly getting my new website up and running. The whole website debacle has been one nightmare after another, and I’m much happier now it’s back in my hands… and when I say ‘my hands’ I mean my awesome assistant Jenn is doing it for me LOL But no, I definitely won’t be using a “web-master” or “site-designer” ever again. They can all sod off, as far as I’m concerned. Considering my odds are two for two, I’ll take a hard pass on ever trusting anyone else to do it ever again. LOL
In WIP news, I’ve sent my last WIP to some beta-readers who have given me some great feedback. I’m letting it simmer for a bit, and I’ll be starting a new one this week!!! I’m really nervous about this one though – I was supposed to write it in 2017 but I freaked out and put it on hold. I think it’s their time now… hoping their resolve holds (and mine) and I can do it justice 😉 I can say it’s a cop/cold case story that I *think* will be a trilogy. Not sure…. just getting the trilogy vibe. LOL
Okay that’s enough from me. I’m off mid-week taking my daughter and her friend to Post Malone in Sydney <best mother of the year>
Have a great week!! <3
