Let’s kick off the blog tour!

As one of the original Ten Penners and co-ordinator of the group, I am pleased to announce our upcoming book launch and kick off our big blog tour!

My blog host today is the lovely Dimity Powell. Dimity blog host day 1use

Dimity blog host day 1 lit

A very talented author of several books. I am very humbled that the blog tour is starting with Dimity interviewing me!

This is such an exciting time for any author and when you have a group of eight ladies who all have very different writing styles on offer, well, we all just get that little extra excited. I can’t wait for the book launch! We have a colouring-in competition for the kids and the best of their age category will win a fully signed copy of our book Mystery, Mayhem & Magic! We will be dressing up with a little cosplay from our characters inspiration and having some light refreshments too.

It sounds like a party? It is! It’s a celebration of seeing our hard work develop into a tangible paperback. And we are proud to be launching at Broadbeach library on the 4th November 10.15 am to 11.15 am. All our pre-sale books and books sold at the launch will be $15.00 (not the rrp of $19.95!).
