Good News Round-up

Lots happening so I’ll combine it all in a quick round-up post 🙂

Dead Heat is out! The official release date isn’t until next week, but it’s in the Big W and Target catalogues (and on their shelves) this week, it’s been spotted in Kmart, and some bookstores already have copies. Oh, it is so good to have a new book out at last!

As well as the Armidale book launch next Thursday 29th, I’ll be at Collins Booksellers in Tamworth on Sat 31st to meet readers and sign books. If you’re in the region, do come along to one of the events!

I’m a guest over on the wonderful Mandy Magro’s blog this week, in her Awesome Aussie Authors series. Do come over and visit Mandy’s blog and find out what my favourite Australian saying is, and other fun things about me – and also about Mandy and her great books.

I’ve also been over at Booktopia last week, answering their 10 Terrifying Questions, and also in the Romance Buzz newsletter, answering Nine Naughty Questions for Romance Writers. (Sorry I didn’t post about these earlier – my unexpected trip to Canberra distracted me.)

I’ve drawn the winner of my newsletter-subscriber giveaway: random-org picked the number 40, and the subscriber on row 40 of the spreadsheet is Rosemary G. Congratulations, Rosemary – your signed book will be on it’s way to you tomorrow!

I’m interviewed in this month’s Bookseller and Publisher magazine about the appeal of rural romance. Do let me know what you think about it!

Kate Cuthbert reviewed Dead Heat on her blog – and highly recommended it 🙂 Kate also reviewed it for Bookseller & Publisher; unfortunately I can’t link to that review (subscriber only) – but it does have 4 stars and includes the words… ‘genuinely chilling…a well-crafted novel that makes excellent use of its wild setting’.

There’s just a couple of days left to enter the GoodReads giveaway for Dead Heat – so be quick!

I’ve started an author Q&A on Goodreads – if you’re on Goodreads, do come and have a chat about Dead Heat, my other books, and writing and reading in general.

I think that’s the important things for now! I’ve got an urgent couple of jobs to finish this week, so now I’m going to get off the internets and go and do them. I’ll be back when they’re done 🙂

  1. Such fabulous news Bron… I may or may not have been at said K-Mart yesterday, and may or may not have altered the placement of some pagecraft items to ensure one Ms Bronwyn Parry was on the top shelf of the ‘new releases…’ – mine should arrive in the mail tomorrow – can’t wait!!!!

  2. Really looking forward to meeting you on Saturday Bron:) Congrats on having Dead Heat in the shops now!

  3. Congratulations Bron! Have a wonderful day tomorrow for the launch. I can’t wait to get a copy 😀

  4. Bookseller+Publisher have published pie charts of the reviewing of women’s writing in Australlia in 2011 – the results speak for themselves

    No wonder we don’t even pay attention to what our readers are doing if they might be looking at what will be assumed to be an all women’s readership such as anything with the word ‘romance’ in the genre title.
