Today there is a very amusing guest blog up at my Burn Bright YA site by Belinda Hamilton, entitled When Cool Loses its Cool. Meanwhile, over at the Marianne Delacourt site you can grab some Tara Sharp wallpaper or badges for your blog.

Here, things are quiet on the surface but underneath this calm exterior I’m plotting my next MDP adult project. What will it be? Though I’m still nursing a hankering for my cowpunk series, it will have to wait until someone loves the idea as much as me. Soooo… I’m thinking strip clubs, demons and a protagonist that can use her voice as a weapon.

The Marianne Delacourt site has relaunched with a fabulous design by Austin Designworks. I was particularly happy to be able to find some galah images that we could incorporate into the look. I have three galahs and Tara Sharp, the protagonist of the Delacourt books, has two. Five galahs between us amounts to a whole lot of things being chewed, and a whole lot of noisy mischief.

In addition to this site, I run two others: Marianne Delacourt and Burn Bright (my YA site). I’m hoping that each site will offer readers of my books slightly different things. Burn Bright (managed by Bec Stafford) is running a host of excellent interviews and profiles on interesting people. The Delacourt site will host the ongoing, free Tara Sharp whodunnits (in conjunction with Facebook) as well as book recommendations, golden oldies and book blog recommendations. This site, however, is the hub – the cornerstone. Here, I’ll be running regular competitions, and blogging my personal writing journey. I hope you’ll join me as I spread ‘word love’ across the intrawebs.

So … be sure to check out Bec and Burn Bright’s excellent profile piece on Morbid Pop Princess Yunyu, as well as recent interviews with wonderful YA authors Margo Lanagan, Kate Forsyth, Alison Goodman, Isobelle Carmody and Richard Harland. Meanwhile over at Marianne Delacourt reminisce about the ultimate road novels, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and On the Road.
