    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!

     

     

Win a copy of A Kingdom Besieged!

A Kingdom Besieged has hit the top ten bestselling books in Australia this week. Win a copy (see instructions below)!

 The Darkness is coming …

The Kingdom is plagued by rumour and instability. Kingdom spies in Kesh have been disappearing — either murdered, or turned to the enemy side. Information has become scant and unreliable; but one thing appears clear. Dark forces are on the move …

Since Pug and the Conclave of Shadows enforced peace after the last Keshian invasion, the Empire has offered no threat. But now factions are rising and Jim Dasher reports mobilizations of large forces in the Keshian Confederacy.

As the men of the West answer the King’s call to muster, Martin conDoin — left as caretaker of Crydee Keep — will suddenly be confronted with the vanguard of an invading army. He reminds himself that he is a year older than his legendary ancestor, Prince Arutha, was when he stood firm against the Tsurani invasion, but Arutha had an army to command, and Martin is left with old men and young boys.

Massive events are about to unfold, events which threaten the future of all human life in Midkemia …

We’re celebrating by giving away a copy to the reader who answers the following question creatively:

Australia is divided into  kingdoms by state and territory lines: The Kingdom of South Australia, the Kingdom of the North, The Kingdom of Victoria etc … Which Kingdom would you rule, and which Kingdom would you attack, and why?

Congratulations to Linda, our winner!
