Happy autumn!

March. And Melbourne is finally deciding to have a streak of consistent warm weather after a coolish summer. I think we need to club together and agree to just move the seasons all forward a month (though that would put my birthday in winter which would give me sadface). In other news, the new kitten is growing like a weed and The Forbidden Heir has a cover (and is about half done!)

August…

August always makes me a bit happy because 1, it’s the last month of winter and 2, it’s usually when Romance Writers of Australia have their annual conference. This year I’m off to Adelaide for that but am only attending a couple of things at conference, so won’t be doing the ARRA signing (I will be at the Melbourne ARRA conference next year (at this stage). I had a lovely time in San Diego at the Romance Writers of America conference in July. Ten days of lovely weather and sunshine was just what I needed.  This month I’m working on .The Forbidden Heir, the sequel to The Shattered Court and hopefully will have the cover to share soon.

In other news, the evil twin has a new book out this month. Playing Fast (book 5 of the New York Saints series, is out on August 30. Here’s where to pre-order that one.

Not to be all Game of Thrones but Winter isn’t coming, it’s here

We had a very mild autumn in Australia (in fact, weirdly warm is a better description). But as soon as June arrived, so did Winter, making it extra hard to adjust to my least favorite time of year. It’s been an up and down couple of months. I lost one of my cats to cancer and there has been odd life stuff going on. So I have been trying to write in between everything but am a bit behind schedule. I am working on The Forbidden Heir, the sequel to The Shattered Court and hopefully will have the cover to share soon. Next month I’m off to San Diego for the Romance Writers of America conference (The Shattered Court is a finalist in the Best Paranormal Romance category of the RITA awards) so it will be extra exciting (and nervewracking).

In other news, the evil twin has a new book out, so go check that out if you’re a romance fan, a baseball fan or both. Her next book, Playing Fast, is out in August, so you can pre-order that one too.
