Come Over to The Dark Side....DownUnder

Welcome, welcome, welcome to our official launch of the 
Dark Side DownUnder blog!!!

We are happy you could join us on this fine Halloween Day. And an appropriate date to launch, don't you think?

Dark Side DownUnder is a blog of writers who are part of the Romance Writers of Australia's Paranormal e-group. We decided we wanted to showcase our members and the speculative fiction and romance genres, so here we are. There are both published and yet-to-be published authors in our group, so you get to see the two sides of the publishing fence here.

And what a line up we have coming up. Instead of having just one huge prize as our launch, we decided to spread it out over the coming weeks! It is going to be a blast!

So how will the blog work?

Well to start off with we will be having Good News Tuesdays, Magic Thursdays (initially giveaways), and Darklight On Saturdays. The first two are self explanatory. The last one -Darklight On- is a spotlight on a DarkSider.
So we hope you can join us in the coming weeks. We are set to have fun!

Here is the Giveaway program:
  • 4th Nov- NYT Best selling author Keri Arthur -  First 3 Riley Jensen Guardian Books: Full Moon Rising, Kissing Sin, Tempting Evil and a copy of Kelley Armstrong's Haunted.
  • 11th Nov - Mel Teshco - Stone-Cold Lover, Ice-Cold Lover, and Carnal Moon e-books.
  • 18th Nov - Maree Anderson -  Even Demons Get the Blues e-book.
  • 25th Nov- Christina Phillips - Forbidden or Captive (if you can wait until February next year)
  • 2nd Dec - Nicole Murphy -  Secret Ones
  • 9th Dec - Tracey O'Hara - Death's Sweet Embrace - e-ARC
  • 16th Dec - Erica HayesPoison Kissed
  • 13th Jan - Shona Husk -  How to Breath Fire e-book

So that's quite a line up and giveaways!!! Join us for your chance to win.

Now we have confirmed the following for the Saturday Darklight On:
Please come along and support our members.

In addition, we have pages with our Bios, Latest Releases, Upcoming Releases, Book Trailers, Free Stories, Web links, and also some Agent names who represent different areas of speculative fiction. So have a look around and enjoy!

To celebrate our launch we are giving two commenters the chance to win prizes!!!!!

They are 1) Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder and a small jigsaw puzzle of a space scene
and 2) a copy of Kelley Armstrong's Haunted.  
Just leave a comment to be in the running!!! Comments close on Tuesday 2nd November.
