Mrs Poynton, who just LOVED Bella's Run and came to buy Hope's Road.
Actually as I post this I'm in NSW, but when I dreamed up this blog posting, I was heading there... I think.
I am VERY excited (and lets just say that is the understatement of 2012) to say that BELLA'S RUN has been named by the editors at iBookstore as one of the "Best of 2012" for romance. There's ten books chosen with Australia's very talented and fabulous Fiona Lowe (Boomerang Bride) and the New York Times bestselling queen of romance, Stephanie Laurens (The Lady Risks All) also on the list . The other eight selected are US authors like Kristan Higgins and - OMG I can barely believe I am about to say this - Nora Roberts!!!
As Patty would say, "Yee HA !!!"
After couple of weeks of floods, an earthquake and a monumental frost, I thought I'd try and deliver some good news today.
I’m home. The whirlwind touring to promote my debut novel, Bella’s Run … has finally come to a halt. I got to meet some absolutely lovely people, visited some beautiful places, met new friends and caught up with old ones. We sincerely had a ball even when driving through flood water in Southern NSW.
I know we shouldn’t have but where else were we to go .. the book tour must go on!
Whilst particularly thrilled to see the very positive comments about BELLA'S RUN in Passing Muster in The Age / Sydney Morning Herald over the weekend, it was equally as pleasing to see Australian Rural Writers get a mention in "the big smoke".
