I just pressed ‘send’ on Healer Moon

I’m all nervous and fluttery. I’ve just done that hugely difficult thing – pressed ‘send’ to my editors and agent on the novel I’ve been working on for the past year. Blood sweat and tears (both mine and my fabulous critique group – thanks especially to Marnie, my Beta reader on this one) has gone into writing and redrafting and … Read More

Guest Post – Magic Thursday and #DarkMoon

It’s Thursday, and over on Dark Side DownUnder it’s Magic Thursday. It’s a particularly magical Thursday for me, because I was invited to talk about my new novel, Dark Moon.
