I’m back at work now. The back has improved enough for me to be able to work again as long as I take regular breaks and keep my core exercises consistent. This is fantastic because I need to get Blaze Dark cooking, and do my Too Sharp edits. Tara Sharp 3 (Too Sharp) is slated for September release – so that’s exciting. I’ll update you on Blaze Dark when I know.

It’s good to be back in routine after what feels like an eternity away from writing.

Other news reminders are that I’ll be in Perth in April for SwanCon, and at Supanova Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane. Unfortunately have to miss Gold Coast and Melbourne this for family reasons. I’ll also be appearing at WriteFest in Bundaberg and the Gold Coast Literati event.

This year, I’ll be introducing Graphic Novel reviews to this site. Reviews will done by Krista Mckeeth who helps me out on Burn Bright and Delacourt sites. So welcome Krista!

All in all it’s shaping up to be a busy year! On top of that, it’s my youngest’s last year at school, so a lot of focus is going on that.

I’ve finally set up a YouTube channel from which MDPWeb will be broadcasting some reviews and other pieces of interest. At the moment it’s only home to the Burn Bright book trailer and my Doom Con (Swancon 37) introduction (see below).

But that won’t be for long! Things are afoot. I’ll be joined by some of the MDPWeb staff who’ll be giving their face and thoughts to some of the great books being published.

I’ll be in Melbourne next week for more book tour, speaking at a number of schools and some radio and bookshop visits. Alison Goodman and I are also set to do our kaffee klatsch with Braiden from YA Concoction. Braiden has kindly organised the KK, and I’m looking forward to it.

In booky news, Sean the Bookanaut has given Glitter Rose a lovely review at his website. There’s an interview with me over at She Known as Jess and a giveaway of Burn Bright.

Lastly, and most importantly, please watch Tara Moss’s message from Unicef and consider giving to them for Mothers Day.

Thanks for tuning in.



I am so thrilled to say that I will be the National Guest of Honour at Doom Con (Swan Con 37) 2012. The International Guest of Honour is Brandon Sanderson and the Fan Guest of Honour is Chris Creagh. Below is the Doom Con launch video.
