Good News Day!

Welcome to this week's good news...


Keri, M.J., Christina, Kylie S., Erica, Shona, Bec, Rowena and Kylie G. would like to thank everyone who supported the Aussie Author Giveaway and bought books at Rosemary Romance Books, Rendezvous Bookstore and Galaxy Books during the months of June, July & August. It was a huge success. We hoped you enjoyed your purchases and are enjoying some new-to-you-Aussie-authors books!


Keri Arthur's Heart of Darkness (re-release Aug 27th, 2013) and Who Needs Enemies (ebook release Aug 28th, 2013) came out late last month.

Private Investigator Nikki James has a lot to contend with. Her lover, Michael Kelly, walked out without so much as a goodbye, and what seemed like a simple case of stopping a runaway teen brought her face-to-face with another clutch of deadly vampires. But if that seemed bad, it is about to get a lot worse, because when Michael returns, it is not for her, but for the case.
Wealthy men are starting to vanish from a resort in Jackson Hole—which is exactly where Nikki’s runaway teen seems to be as well. Something nefarious is going on at the luxury spa, but what? The last thing Michael needs is a confrontation with Nikki—especially when his control over his bloodlust is still so tenuous. But posing as a newlywed couple at the swanky resort may be the best way for both of them to solve their respective cases. This time, Nikki is determined to make Michael see that life apart is worse than death. Yet before she can make him see the light, a specter from Michael’s past rises that could destroy any hope she has of a future with him. Because this time the threat isn’t physical. It’s a matter of the heart.

Harriet Phillecky is a rare part elf, part siren and wanted by neither race. Not that she really cares. A successful news photographer turned paranormal investigator, she now has a 'family' of friends that includes ogres who constantly raid her refrigerator and take over her TV, and a dragon who drinks far too much for his own good.
But when the only elven relative she has any contact with asks her to investigate the disappearance of a siren, she finds herself unable to refuse.
All too quickly the disappearance becomes murder, relatives come out of the woodwork, and a man she'd much rather forget steps back into her life. Harri wants nothing more than to run—especially when the evidence beats a path to the doors of those who'd long ago abandoned her. But when the life she's created for herself comes under threat, Harri has little choice but to hunt down a killer—before everything she holds dear is destroyed.

Carlie Simonsen has released two short chapter books.

Wings: Wings #1 (Released on 20 July, 2013)
Wings is the first book in the Wings series, which follows a family of people who have wings and bird-like feet. They have lived as normal a life as possible, concealing their not-so-human aspects as best they can. So far they have been successful, but that’s all about to be turned upside down.
Jack has wings, but he keeps them well-hidden. When a new girl comes to school and does not hide her own wings, what changes will she bring to Jack’s life?

Wings is available from Smashwords, Amazon-Kindle, Kobo, Nook, DriveThruFiction and iTunes.

Flying with Friends: Wings #2 (Released 26 August, 2013)
Jack has been looking forward to the Christmas holidays. Not just because it is a break away from school, but because, this Christmas holidays, he is going to learn to fly. The only thing that mars his trip is the flash of blue he sees behind them on a remote dirt track. Why would someone be following them way out here? Is he seeing things?
Flying with Friends is the second book in the Wings chapter book series, set around a family with wings and bird-like feet.

Flying with Friends is available on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iTunes, DrivethruFiction, Smashwords and as a print-on-demand title.


Christina Phillips has received a 5 star review from A Readers Review for Tainted:

Adina West received an 8.5/10 star review from Fantasy Fiction for Dark Child (Omnibus Edition):
"I enjoyed this book a lot. After Twilight I wasn’t expecting to be able to tolerate these creatures ever again, but Adina West has convinced me to give them another chance. I would also love to thank her for writing a story about vampires and werewolves without once mentioning those words. Brilliant!...Dark Child is a smart, fun adventure with characters I enjoyed spending time with and a plot that actually went places. Regardless of the over-saturation in the market of the creatures involved...this book was everything that [Twilight] wasn’t—in all the best possible ways."

The Blood She Betrayed by Cheryse Durrant has received a 5 star review from 21st Century Once Upon a Times & Booknut 101.
"Brawls, wicked intentions, romance, destiny and magic collide in a novel that is sure to have you hooked until the very last word.
 With effortless humour, vivid detail and a cast of relatable characters, Cheryse Durrant's The Blood She Betrayed is a refreshing change from your usual YA fiction, reshaping myths and creating worlds that will entice and engage readers across the world. 
Taloners may eat your heart. But humans can steal it." 
Full review here. 

The Blood She Betrayed has also been reviewed by Bundaberg NewsMail Editor Christina Ongley, who writes:
"A book bursting with complex and likeable characters as Durrant deftly fuses modern-day and centuries-old worlds in a classic good-versus-evil action story. The Blood She Betrayed is not without its lighter moments as Shahkara’s old-world language and her efforts to grapple with modern technology bring regular amusement, but at the heart of this story is her steely resolve to carry out her mission to destroy, regardless of the huge personal cost. Durrant peels away the layers to reveal a tantalising climax."
