Also go to Romance at Booktopia’s facebook page, and share the post about me on facebook by midnight Monday 8th July (today) for your chance to win one of three copies of ‘The Sunburnt Country’, thanks to Penguin Books Australia.

I get emails from people asking to buy signed books. This is not a problem. I love the fact that you want my books, and I’m honoured that you would like them personally signed. I have just set up an ebay account so if you prefer to buy them that way, just search for the books or here are the links to their pages. The Family Farm Heart of Gold I will have The Road Home up, close to its release date. Alternatively you can send me an email requesting a book and providing me with your address. I will then get back to you with costs, including postage and my bank details. Once payment has come through I will post your book/s straight off. Although don’t expect a speedy delivery. To Perth sometimes can only a few days but over east could take up to two weeks. Snail mail
I was very excited to stumble across my book on the German Random House website. (Even though I know NO German, I still managed to navigate to the authors page and find my book) It was great to see it for the first time. They re-market it, so The Family Farm became The Luck of the Red Earth. (I google translated it and then took it next door to my German neighbour to double check lol) It will be released in Germany on April 1st. I love the colours, even though its nothing like where the book is set but I understand it’s made to stand out as ‘Australian’. Heart of Gold has also been signed up with the Diana Verlag imprint of Random House. I’m not sure when it will be out, but they took two years to get The Family Farm out, so I won’t hold my breath for any time soon. Now I look forward
For your chance to win a signed copy of my book, along with some bookmarks, fridge magnets and a Gum Tree Tavern stubby holder just answer the following question to me by email email@example.com (Those who have read The Family Farm will be familiar with the ‘Tree’ as I wrote about it in the book – now is your chance to have your slice of the Tree, be it in the very important form of a stubby holder and magnet) The question is – Who was your favourite character in The Family Farm and why? And for those who haven’t read it yet…just answer why you would like to read it instead. I will be drawing a winner at random from the emailed entries on Wed 28th July. Goodluck!
For those of you wondering what the ‘tree’ looks like, that I talk about or wrote about in The Family Farm, here is a picture. I did this up for a special friend leaving the district and I wanted her to take something of Pingaring with her. Everything in this photo frame came from the ‘tree’, the bark; bottle tops, stubby holder, gumleaves and even the dirt and rocks, and a picture of her send off night. It mightn’t look like much but it’s still a magical place.
Whilst on holidays I spotted this in the local paper and couldn’t believe it. Talk about a surprise! I feel very special to be sitting in 5th spot for the week.
For those of you who can’t wait till next week for the release of The Family Farm there is an extract (the first chapter) to read online. Click here for a direct link.
I’m having the launch for The Family Farm next Friday — July 3 — at the CWA in Pingaring from 2.30pm. If you’re nearby, come in for a cuppa and a chat. I will gladly sign the book, if you really want my scribble in it. It will be great to catch up with everyone. See you there!
It was very exciting to get a box full of The Family Farm. The kids thought the little bits of foam padding were much more fun and Blake likes to eat them! These copies will be going to those special people in my life who helped me on this journey.
Today I got the mail and there it was. Finally I could hold The Family Farm in my hand. Its very exciting and overwhelming. Now its waiting for its release date (June 29) and to see what you all think. I will have no nails left by then, I’m sure!
