New Year - 2020 News and Sales

Happy New Year!

I hope you all enjoyed Christmas and the start to this new decade has been as good as can be! It's a double new decade for me as I celebrated my 40th birthday a few weeks ago, so I will be going forward into 2020 in a whole new age bracket.

This year has started with an unexpected bang. After a huuuugggge year of writing last year, I hoped to take a little break over Christmas. I managed a couple of weeks before edits landed on my desk, not to mention myriad book sales my publisher has nominated a number of books to be included in.

With book news and great sales already underway, I thought I better let you know all about them, so you can take advantage of the deals while they last.


On Monday, I was delightfully surprised to be informed that my gorgeous Christmas novella, One Hot Christmas, is a finalist in the 2019 Australian Romance Readers Association (ARRA) awards in the members' choice category of Favourite Small-town Fiction.

Winners will be announced at the ARRA Awards Dinner in Sydney, March 2020. Fingers crossed!

If you want more information on One Hot Christmas, you can find all you need here.


I am so thrilled to announce that Bittersweet (Book 1 in my Brothers of the Vine Series and 2 x finalist in the 2018 ARRA Awards and a finalist in the 2019 Romance Writers of Australia RUBY Awards) is going to be released in print during March 2020 as a part of a 3-in-1 bestsellers bind-up titled Under the Vines, alongside books from two fabulous Australian writers, Tricia Stringer and Lily Malone.

Books will start to hit Australian bookshelves on 23 March 2020. It will also be available for order from online bookstores. If you want to secure a copy early, a number of online retailers are offering pre-order. You can find out more information on my publisher's website here.

If you're the type of reader (like me!) who prefers to read e-books and you don't want to wait until March to read Bittersweet, then now is the time to take advantage of some great sales and price reductions on books in my Brothers of the Vine series.

US readers, you can download a copy of Bittersweet from most e-book retailers (Amazon, B&N, etc.) from now until 27 January 2020 for only 99c.

For all other countries, the price of Bittersweet and The Sweetest Secret (book 2) have been reduced from $5.99 down to $3.99 (fluctuations may occur from country to country due to currency exchange differences and VAT).


More great news for books in my Wattle Valley series. My publisher has chosen Meet Me in the Middle (Wattle Valley book 2) to be a part of it's Summer of Love promotion. Until the end of February 2020, you can download this sweet, cheeky but emotional small-town romance for half the price - $1.99. Check out my publisher's website for all the links here.

To further get the word out, Amazon has chosen Meet Me in the Middle to be a Kindle Monthly Deal. You can download this book from Amazon for the same low price of $1.99.

If you haven't started the Wattle Valley series and you want see what all the fuss is about, Book 1, Catch Me a Cowboy, has had its price reduced from $5.99 down to $3.99 (prices may vary from country to country due to currency exchange differences and VAT). If you want more information about this delightful rural romance, you can find it here.


Drum roll please! I am unbelievably pleased to announce the upcoming release of the third book in my Mercy Island Series, Only Ever You. What do you think of the gorgeous cover?

A new, breathtaking Mercy Island novel about finding The One and doing every possible to keep him... I believe you can know your true love even before you meet him. And when you do meet him, he feels so damn familiar it's as though that moment was always meant to happen. As though that one person was always meant to be your One and Only.

But life is known to be unkind. And just because I found my One and Only, doesn’t mean I get to keep him.

Only Ever You is an Amazon Only title and will be releasing on 20 April 2020. If you want to one-click now to secure your copy, pre-order is available from Amazon stores worldwide.
