Here is my schedule for the week. Would love to see some friends there!

MDP author talks will be held at: Arana Hills Library from 6.30pm on Monday, March 28; Strathpine Library on Tuesday March 29 from 6.30 pm; Narangba Library on Wednesday March 30 from 6.30pm; and at Redcliffe Library from 10am on Thursday March 31.

“Multi-faceted author Marianne de Pierres will bring her blend of fantasy, humour and crime writing talents to a series of talks at Moreton Bay Region Libraries later this month.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Lifestyle and Amenities spokesperson, Cr David Dwyer, said the popular author had just released her first novel for young adults, Burn Bright –  which delves into the world of glamour and the darker aspects of teenage anxiety.

“Marianne de Pierres has a strong and dedicated following and her talks from the author’s perspective are always riveting,” Cr Dwyer said.

“It’s your chance explore the world and influences of a well regarded author in the comfort of a local Moreton Bay region library.”

Marianne de Pierres’ previous works include the multi-award-nominated Parrish Plessis and Sentients of the Orion series as well as the Tara Sharp humorous crime series written under a pseudonym, Marianne Delacourt.

Bookings are recommended and can be made through individual libraries.

Followed by:

An evening with Marianne de Pierres
Victoria Point Library
Thursday 31 March, 6 – 7pm

Come along to hear Marianne talk about her writing across both science fiction and crime genres and her new venture into young adult dark fantasy.

Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to Anne on 3884 4011.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Angus & Robertson Victoria Point.

Tara Sharp is back in two more novels coming to you in 2012 and 2013. You can read all the details over at the Marianne Delacourt site. Needless to say I’m pretty excited about it!

Over at the Burn Bright site, were getting a bit crazy with only 12 days until the book is out. Over there you can see the photos of the staff with their special copies, and I’ve just updated the music page with the cover image for Yunyu’s song, Angel Arias. I’ve been adding some reviews as they come in, and you can now read chapter one for free. Don’t forget to tune into the podcast and listen to the premiere of Yunyu’s amazing song.

Also, I’ve got a couple of events coming up:
