Exciting Announcement

Not long now before my short story, Birthright, will be published in Make Believe and released into the big wide world on 3rd December. So exciting!!

A couple of early reviews have already trickled in and I’m thrilled to say they are all positive. One that was specific to my story brought on a massive smile and a happy dance in the middle of the room:
“…the enigmatic Jack really takes the spotlight. His enthusiasm for his museum and Christa is exciting. I could easily read a novel-length version of this piece.” Danielle Villano. 
Pop on over to Danielle's blog at The Reader’s Commute for a full review of all the stories.

Make Believe Blog Tour
I’ve finally posted the Make Believe Blog Tour list.
You can see it in all its glory on my Blog Tour tab HERE

A huge thank you to everyone who has generously given their time and enthusiasm for celebrating this event, and sharing the news. I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: You are all so awesome.

Unfortunately I won’t have internet access for a week before the launch, so this is my last post before the anthology’s launch. Eek! Consequently I’d like to send out a special thanks to all who have already signed up to celebrate the release on launch day, 3rd December. Extra virtual cake for you! And MORE!

Announcement: I'd like to GIVEAWAY an ebook copy of Make Believe to one lucky person who has signed up and helps spread the word about Make Believe on Launch day (I'll also include those signed up for the Blog Tour). I'll draw a name from a sparkly hat and announce the winner on 5th December*

Note: In case of late sign-up, or I can’t get an email out to you in time, everything you’ll need for launch day should be on my Make Believe Tab.

*If you haven’t signed up for launch day celebrations and would like to, there's still time and I'll enter you into the giveaway. Please sign up below.

  2. Forgot to say that I saw Life of Pi and I think you would appreciate the spiritual message.
    Oh, and you DID sign up for the blogfest! Thank you. I appreciate that, especially since you'll be on tour.
    One more thing - don't enter me for the free copy. I'm buying mine!

    1. As far as I know, Life of Pi isn't available in Oz yet, but hopefully it will arrive soon.

      You should see my calendar in December... it's a mess with scribbles all over it so I don't forget any of my committments, lol.

      And thanks

  11. Hey Lynda, I just signed up, but my Link name as shown above is incorrect, it was supposed to be Murees Dupé, from daily drama of an aspiring writer. I don't mind, but I just thought you should know. Sorry about that.
