It’s been a month out of the box, filled with bookish news.
Today THIS happened for Fairway To Heaven!
There was of course, much squealing in the computer room, as I called out to my hubby and my kids that my book had reached No. 15 in the Amazon Australia store and Number 2 in Contemporary Romance.
So then Mr 7 (who is almost Mr 8) said: “That’s great Mum, but how’s it going on Amazon US?”
Me: “Okay, I’ll check.”
And the answer is: 208,000th, but who’s counting 🙂
That’s how my kids keep me grounded! They’re good at doing that.
Fridays are always wonderful in this house (#AllTheWine) but today got extra special. My new novel, So Far Into You, is up for pre-order and it’s now on pre-order sale, just 99 cents for Australian Amazon readers 🙂
This story begins in Margaret River and moves to the Adelaide Hills (much like I did, only I came back to Margaret River a few years ago). The book is very close to my heart because it’s set in two parts of the world that I love, and the bones of Seth and Remy’s story was the very first story I ever tried to write. (Not that you’d recognise it now…)
So I’m extra excited this Friday, can you tell?
If you’re interested, you can pre-order So Far Into You from these providers below:

My novella, The Goodbye Ride, has come off the cyber shelves for a while.
Today, I signed a Contract with Escape Publishing for the book, and took The Goodbye Ride down from Amazon where it has been self-published since May 2013.
Hopefully it will be back in publication in 2016 with a new cover, and maybe a few edits and tweaks. But, it will always be Liv and Owen’s story set in Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills over the June (Queen’s Birthday) long weekend.
I also have big news about Fairway To Heaven. Fairway is a ‘Kindle Monthly Deal’ for August. It’s been discounted to $1.09 (Australia), about 72cents in the US. Today it cracked the Amazon Australia Top 100 – which is virgin territory for me.
I took a screen shot to prove it!
It has been a wild, wonderful, crazy week – and there is more news to come for Fairway, but the powers-that-be at Escape won’t let me tell anyone yet 🙂
I love surprises – when they’re good ones. Not such a fan of bad surprises!
But this was very welcome this morning. The good fairies of Amazon have put Fairway To Heaven on sale for $1.49 at Amazon Australia and when I woke up this morning it was ranked 220!
Right now, I’m sitting beside my wonderful author friend, Jennie Jones, side by side with The House On Burra Burra Lane and 12 Days At Silver Bells House. It’s got to be said, I don’t often get to sit beside Jennie, unless we’re drinking champagne!
Somehow, that makes my day even more special!
The trick here is, it’s impossible to know how long the sale lasts. So please make sure you check before you click, just in case it’s all over red rover 🙂
