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!



Well, am heading down to Supanova Sydney and Perth on Friday, so will be on the road for 8 days. Taking Angel Arias edit with me, as publication date had now been brought forward to October 3. Exciting to be on the final edits.

My sekret project is coming together and will be revealed in August. Can’t wait to share it with you!

Work on Tara Sharp 3 (Too Sharp!) is coming along and am meeting with some people in Sydney to help me with my research. Many thanks to those that have emailed me about publication date – as far as I know, it is October next year. If you wander over to the Tara Sharp/Delacourt site you can read some great articles and interviews by Kylie Fox, Mandy Wrangles and Janette Dalgleish. There’s also mention of Tara Sharp’s Driving Tour of Perth. You can find out what that is :)

My Parrish novelette has slowed down with other work taking precedent. I will finish it though, as soon as I get a spare window. Parrish would never let me forget about her!

Lastly, must share with you my new MDPWeb logo, designed by Brigitte Sutherland. Sweet, huh?





Resuming regular broadcast now after all the frivolity and me-time.

Some news that will interest many of you. Aussie bestselling author, Ian Irvine, now has a fan page on Facebook through which he’ll be giving away over 300 copies of his books in the next months. Just search for Ian Irvine, “like” the page, and you’ll be in the running to win.

Also, beginning Monday, I’ll be doing some giveaways across my own sites in conjunction with various news. Some will be YA, and others crime. Check across the MDPWeb so you don’t miss out. I’ll have some news on a great writing workshop opportunity about to hit Aussie shores as well.
