Reviews and a favour to ask of you


There’s a lot going on at the moment, and I must be feeling a wee bit stressed, because I’ve had the sudden urge to number things.

1. Two more reviews have come in for Night Beach.

Book’d OutNight Beach is a novel that got under my skin, complex, breathtaking and compelling, I can only insist you experience it for yourself. This is a story that stays with you, haunts you and despite its young adult label deserves an adult audience.

Spellbound by BooksI’ve read everything she’s written so far, and this is by far my most favourite read.

Thanks to both Shellyrae and Melissa for taking the time to read the book.

2. And due to a late scratching, I’m going to be blogging all this month at Inside A Dog – the Centre for Youth Literature’s website for readers. The CYL have been phenomenally good to me, inviting me to Reading Matters last year, and taking me to Geelong, and now this. And my only response to date has been to steal their Facebook photos. So I’m going to try really hard to be a good Writer in Residence for them.

3. Which leads me to the favour. If you’ve got a chance, I will love you forever if you visit me over there and leave a comment or ask a question, or get involved in the GIVEAWAY I’ll be running. (It’s a separate giveaway to the one that’s happening here on the 27th of May).

Okay, that’s all for now. Have a great day. This is what I’ll be listening to:
