I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since I posted about something other than food or cooking. Not that there’s anything wrong with food and cooking. No way. Food is good! Cooking is fun! But change is like a Belgian chocolate truffle. It does the soul much good.
After a month of wrangling boxes, building new bookshelves (oh, thank you, IKEA!), and generally smacking things into some form of organisation, my office is at last looking like a workplace instead of a forgotten back garden shed. I now have a semi-tidy desk and planners on my wall, and my white boards are looking suitably scribbled on with character notes for my next book, up-coming promos and important things like conference and book release dates.
Yes, I have a release date for my next rural set romance, Heart of the Valley. April 26th is the big day and the start of what will be a very, very busy but fun month, with a library tour of South East S.A. and guest blogging like there’s no tomorrow. I’ll make sure to keep you up to date on all my adventures via my website, Facebook, Twitter and, of course, here.
In the meantime, I’m knuckling down to my next book in between appearances in blogland. This Saturday sees me over at Mission: Romance as part of their “In The Paddock With…” series, discussing places that really resonate in your heart, like home towns. Drop by and share the place that means the most to you and you could win a signed copy of Promises.
Speaking of home towns, if you’re interested in a bit of history then check out this wonderful mini documentary of a typical day in 1960’s Mount Gambier. The film was part of the Department of Immigration’s “Life In Australia” series and it’s incredible to see how much the place has changed.

And watch out for Heart of the Valley’s blurb and cover. Coming veeeeery soon!
