• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:


    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

     

     

Kim Falconer and Castle Plaza Books – A Virtual Signing this Thursday!

Kim Falconer Virtual Book Plate

On Thursday, September 15, between 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm something new is happening.  We’re calling it a virtual signing, an innovation thanks to global technology, the internet and great minds thinking alike.

In one reality, this event will be held at Castle Plaza Bookshop
Shop T54 Castle Plaza, 992 South Rd Edwarstown
Adelaide, South Australia.

In another reality, it will be held wherever you are –  anywhere in the entire time space continuum that has a computer and a phone line.

The Virtual Signing is a way for readers to connect with their favourite authors, chat, ask questions, share revelations and get a signed copy of their latest book. Not so new an idea? It is when you take into account the author may be thousands of kilometres away from said reader.

Castle Plaza books, (and perhaps a books store nearer you), are bringing  authors and readers together who can’t physically make it into the store for signings. Instead, they will be having a Skype session at the store! You walk in, browse the bookshelf, select the next book in the series you’re after and sit down in front of the shop computer to chat, face to face in real time, with Kim. She will sign a bookplate (by cover artist Aaron Briggs) just for you that comes with your purchase while chatting about all things Earth and Gaela!

Not in the area to get your book? You can still SKYPE on the conference line and not miss out!Kim on Skype

 Castle Plaza Books says: The first Skype signing will be with the lovely Kim Falconer. All of Kim’s books will be available to purchase on the day and she will be sending out signed bookplates to be put into the books or you can pick up one pre-signed on the day!
Kim is the author of the Quantum  Enchantment and the Quantum Encryption series. Her new book ‘Journey by Night‘ is out September 1, 2011.
