More Melbourne …

View this post on Instagram So @justinelarbalestier and @scott_westerfeld are such seasoned campaigners. Today they showed me how to block the exit of @avenuebookstore to subtly remind escaping customers to BUY OUR BOOKS. Huge thanks to Sophie who helped me hold my book, because as we all know it's a weighty tome. Signed copies of #mysisterrosa #zeroes and #summerskin are now available at

Melbourne …

View this post on Instagram One of the reasons I love my publisher @allenandunwin is that the people there give you great career advice. So, like, this is my new author head shot, because according to Lisa Watkins (super rep) using your book for ears and downlighting is the way to go. Thanks to Lisa for the solid. #summerskin #melbourne #dymocksmelbourne #writinglife #ontourfortoolong

Sydney Morning Herald YA round up

View this post on Instagram #loveOzYA peeps – if you haven't already seen it, @frantatkinson has done a great round up of the year ahead in this weekend's Spectrum and Age. It says Oz YA has a 'first class reputation' so that made me proud. Then I got scared because @willkostakis looks so bad ass. Then I got happy because they used a

Summer Skin playlist

It’ll give you nearly 3 hours of auditory pleazzzure. But – plot twist! – it’s not 100% correct. The real playlist is the chapter list.

So what’s different? Spotify wouldn’t

Afterwards we went and toured the Booktopia warehouse because we
