Win a copy of The Sunburnt Country

Friday, 25 January 2013 by

The power is back on and the generator is stashed away. (Although I just found the long extension cord chewed to bits by the dog. Not impressed!!) So I have for you today the first chapter of The Sunburnt Country. I hope you enjoy it. Don’t forget to read how to enter the competition to win a signed copy of my new book at the bottom. ūüôā Enjoy and have a happy Australia Day! (I’m a proud Aussie) Hot westerly winds rattled the old tin roof and blew a small eddy of dust into the workshop. Jonelle put down the container of coolant and reached for the radiator cap that was resting on the car‚Äôs motor. She should have been more careful but it was too late: her dusky-pink nail polish chipped on contact with the motor. ‚ÄėOh, crap. Nae‚Äôs gonna kill me,‚Äô she mumbled. Her nails were hardly worth doing, always kept short out

Yes, it’s all over. Two full days sitting behind this table chatting to people from all over and signing books. Three nights camping in the freezing cold, thank goodness for eletric blankets!¬† And most of all thank goodness for mum who came along to help. Bringing regular hot cuppa’s and watching the stall while I ducked off for a look-see. (Thanks mum!) It also helped sharing our stall space with two lovely people,George and Gabby.¬† I didn’t get to see too many people I knew but the lovely Rachael Blair (Rach Johns) and her three gorgeous boys, stopped by for a quick hello. I ran a competition for those who wanted to enter for a chance to win both my books and I drew it yesterday. The winner of both books is : Liz Marcus from Greenmount. Books will be posted at the start of next week Liz. And I also did a runner up

My¬†next book is at the editing stage…not long after that comes the cover design and looking for a great picture.¬† I thought I would put the call out, as some of you may have a great¬†photo that you have taken yourself and it would be great to¬†see your own photo on a book. As the book¬†may be called The Road Home we are thinking of a photo of a road, like the one above.¬† But maybe with a clear blue sky or sunsets. It could be a straight or bent road…whatever you think looks great.¬† So if you would like to share your photos with me, please email them to¬† and I will put them up on my website for all to see.¬† Now I can’t guarantee that one of them will be used as the cover, all I can do is pass them on to Penguin for the graphics department to have a look.¬†
