Good news day

Yesterday was a very good day.

Started well when both GW and I remembered it was our 24th wedding anniversary – who could believe we looked so young when we married all those years ago… ย Unfortunately we both had to work, so that put a tiny dampener on the day. Celebrations were very low key at 10 pm when I finally made it home from a dark and stormy night in the air.

The next big news was finding out BURNING LIES will be released on the 2nd July 2012. That means I can now start organising parties ๐Ÿ™‚

So I’m date claiming 6th July 2012 for those of you in Cairns and the 13th July 2012 for those in Brisbane. ย Venues are still to be decided!

The good news kept coming. Since I now have the benefit of two publishers I have twice the announcements to make! SHATTERED SKY was to be re-released as a B format but Hachette have recognised that the e-book market is storming ahead so instead they’ve reduced the price of SHATTERED SKY’s e-book to reflect that. You can now by WINGS OF FEAR and SHATTERED SKY, in most countries, as ebooks for $10.99 and $11.99 respectively. That means on your e-reader you can have the set for less than the price of one paperback book!

And the final thing for the day? I arrived at work to find I had an all female crew for the second time in a week ๐Ÿ™‚ A very good news day indeed!

  1. Thanks, Rachel. Love flying with an all girl crew. Somehow there’s a different vibe to the aircraft and I have never had a problem passenger on a flight crewed only with women. The passengers seem to be a little more mellow and better behaved. Of course they like to have a little dig about two women pilots but the cabin crew have plenty of witty comebacks ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks, Jenn. I thought I was going to be near your part of Australia in March but alas I’m going to Taree which is a long way south from you… Know any good libraries around Coffs who’d like an author visit ๐Ÿ™‚ (I’m being very cheeky….)

  3. Thanks, Phillipa, I’ll let you know if I make it to Adelaide so we can have a glass of champagne to celebrate. I hope your RSI is on the improve… I can think of nothing more frustrating for a writer…

  4. Congratulations Helene. I look forward to reading Burning Lies in July. And congrats on your wedding anniversary. I hope 2012 is a great year for you!

  5. Thanks, Amanda, I will definitely let you know if I’m celebrating in Sydney. Otherwise we can celebrate at the Gold Coast- it will only be six week late ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Thanks Cathy! Lol, there’s only one resort in the Straits on Coconut Island and I don’t think it takes more than a dozen people!!

    We do two flights to Horn Island a day as it’s the gateway to the Torres Strait. Lots of government staff and teaches, nurses etc so it’s always a busy run.

  7. Wooo HOO re burning lies – so so so so exciting… let me know if there will be a Sydney launch at any stage so I can add it to the diary WAY in advance xx

  8. Happy anniversary! ๐Ÿ™‚ My goodness, now you’re making me feel old.

    Have ear-marked the 13th July for partee, partee, PARTEEEEEEE.
    Glad Hachette are embracing the ebook challenge.

    Go the Girl Power! ๐Ÿ™‚
