Illnesses and interruptions

August 5, 2018 at 2:48 pm

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to blog but I thought I’d better make time, especially now I’m getting back in the saddle, so to speak. In the middle of the celebrations for the fifth anniversary of The Heir’s release in June, I injured my hip to such an extent that I was hospitalised! Fortunately, the online marketing I’d planned was already organised, so it proceeded on its merry way while I convalesced. However, the hip problem had an unexpected snag that has proved difficult for someone who earns her living editing and tries to spend a good […]

Supanova Gold Coast!

May 2, 2018 at 4:14 pm

Last weekend I attended Supanova Gold Coast with Jeanette O’Hagan and Adele Jones. We had a great time and especially enjoyed (as usual) seeing what everyone was wearing. Jeanette and I were keeping tabs on the different Doctors, and we think the only ones missing were Patrick Troughton, Colin Baker, Paul McGann and Christopher Eccleston. There was certainly no shortage of long scarves, long coats and bow ties! I wore my new costume, which I talked about in last month’s blog. The tiara received several positive comments and I took it off a few times so that someone could have […]

Help me find a crown

If everything goes well, Adele Jones, Jeanette O’Hagan and I will be attending Gold Coast Supanova in late April! 🙂 We had great fun when we went to ComicCon in September last year and enjoyed seeing everyone participating in cosplay and getting into the swing of it. We did our best to join in – I had a dress with stars on it (and a TARDIS) to lend a sci-fi theme to my costume, and I also wore my old wedding tiara to stand in for a crown, as is featured on the cover of book two in the Verindon […]

It’s that time of the year again!

Merry Christmas, all! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, mainly because life has been insanely busy on all fronts. Finally, I get a chance to wish you all the joy in the world this festive season. I’m happy to say I have been busy with my books and have done a number of book events since Comic Con. I’ve also made a few good contacts and have some things already lined up for next year. I’m hoping to get to Supanova on the Gold Coast in April, especially since Peter Capaldi’s going to be there. He’s from Doctor Who, […]

Exciting Times

October 1, 2017 at 3:58 pm

Last weekend I went to my first ever Comic-Con event right here in Brisbane, and I’m hooked! I was at the Intricate Worlds table with two author friends, Adele Jones and Jeanette O’Hagan. It was a great idea to share a table, as it meant we could not only share the costs but also man the table if one or other of us wanted to take a break and see all the great things on offer at Comic-Con. I’m happy to say that all three of us were pleased with the response our books received. We gave out so many […]

Feast or Famine

August 27, 2017 at 3:19 pm

Up until now, this year has been a quiet one as far as author opportunities go, even after the release of Once Confronted in late 2016. So I went looking for opportunities and thankfully I’ve found some. 🙂 I find that sometimes an author has to keep her nose to the ground when sniffing out new ideas for marketing, and fellow authors can be a great help with that. It was through two other authors that I found some US radio shows that are happy to interview authors from all over the world. I was interviewed by one a couple […]
