Just a few links - blowing my own trumpet I guess. Everyone else seems to be doing it!

Here's where you can buy a hardback copy of Coming Home:
Yes, you can still buy from TBD even though it has been bought out by you know who. Or you can buy it from http://www.amazon.co.uk/
And in January you'll be able to buy it direct from Robert Hale Ltd as an e-book.

Oh yeah, I'm on Goodreads. Got quite a few recommendations for books I've read on there. See if you like the same stuff:

And that's quite enough trumpet blowing for today. In our family it's usually my husband and son who do the real trumpet blowing (some of it not so good). BTW, I'm on authonomy too, but you don't really want to hear about that...

Here's a picture of the New Zealand bushland so your visit to my blog is not QUITE such a waste of time. This is in the Waitakeres, the hills just outside Auckland where my LETHAL REFUGE is set. You can read all about it on 13 January. Being released as a paperback by The Wild Rose Press.

Aurora Regencies at Musa Publishing

It is a year now since Aurora Regencies were launched (under the AMP banner). Now they are all under the Musa Publishing banner. Celina Summers is editor extraordinaire when it comes to assessing Regencies. She won't allow 21st century mannerisms to creep in nor allow improbable circumstances to sully the quality of Aurora Regencies. Have a look on the Musa Publishing site. I really, really enjoy writing for this company; they are so good at what they do.

They're Heeeee-re!

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!! Musa Publishing opened its doors and we had a cyber party. Bevvies consumed, rubbish talked...the usual.

See this excellent post by Annie Seaton if you want to know all the nitty-gritty about this "new" publisher:  http://www.annieseaton.blogspot.com/

This gives an clear overview of what Musa stands for and shows the range of genres that readers can dip into, some of them cross-genres.

Enjoy! Musa will be around a long time.
