The birth of the a new website is a big event on MDPWeb, and this time it’s our crime site that gets the overhaul. We’re thrilled with the great job by Austin Designworks who are also responsible for this site and the Burn Bright website. Thank you ADW!

The third Tara Sharp novel will be out in September, so head over to the new look site and tell us what you think!

So much cooking the next month or so. Am still writing to deadline but time for SwanCon is creeping closer. Among the many fun things I get to do there, is to launch the new anthology from Ticonderoga Publications called Damnation and Dames. Liz Gryzb and Russell B. Farr have been friends of mine forever and a day and I’m excited to be in town and available to launch this for them. Later next week, I’m also having an interview with Ian Nichols for the West Australian.

After I get back there are all sorts of appearances coming up, including Bundaberg Writefest and the Golf Coast Literati event. But before I go, I get to cross swords with my mate Alex Adsett and others on a ASA panel on digital rights.

So much fun stuff, and timely. I feel like I need to get out of the house. Finishing up two books over the early part of the year has meant living a very routine life. So ready for time out!

And speaking of my books, today I got the new cover for the next Tara Sharp novel. This is a departure from the previous look and I like it a lot. in this episode, Tara travels to Brisbane to help out a music promoter with his troublesome client. Sharp madness ensues!

The book will be released in September. For a big, close look at it, check out the Tara Sharp tumblr page.

See what y’all think!



Thought it was round up and upcomings time. Very excited to say that Marv Wolfman – the legend – will be my next Super Creatives guest here. Following Marv will be Tom Taylor Made – so stand by for much comic goodness.

Over at the Burn Bright site we’ve got HEAPS happening. Have just taken on our new teen reviewer Lisa Smith (US-based) and we’re looking forward to her bright and breezy input to our team. Hot on the heels of Lisa’s arrival is another new regular. Sydney-based costume designer, Rena Nero, will be talking about cosplay and costume and will have lots of gorgeous pics to whet your appetites. Bel and Jamie have another swarm of dating tips, Cel’s is still Supe-ing and there’s the usual range of great reviews and interviews. On top of all that there’s the big Publish Burn Bright Worldwide Campaign which is picking up momentum thanks to readers. Lastly, you can also look forward to a guest vlog from TheReadables (Priscilla) who’ll be talking you through how to become a successful book vlogger.

The Marianne Delacourt site has also got some upcoming interviews with Tara Moss and Lindy Cameron and a bunch of reviews on the boil and regular updates on Tara Sharp’s  latest exploits.

My Events calendar is filling up again – so if you wanted to catch up and have a book signed or say hello, check these links for dates: Brisbane Writers Festival, SheKilda crime convention, The Gold Coast Writers group Literary Luncheon, Logan Library Mega Panel, Supanova Brisbane.

I’d like to say thank everyone who supported the first issue of Peacemaker. I am learning, clearly, but I hope you’ll stick with us for issue 2. Brigitte’s wonderful illustrations are so worth it!
