    What do you mean you’re leaving KU? aka How will I read your books?

    Over the coming three months, I will be removing my books for Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited (KU) and I have had some readers tell me they will no longer be able to read my books. I’ve had some authors question my sanity. And I’ve had some moments when I’ve wondered if  shouldn’t just quit writing entirely.  The truth is this wasn’t a decision I took lightly – and it’s one I’ve been considering for several months. If you love to read MMRomance, chances are you know about KU. Part of the Amazon platform, KU is a subscription service by which a reader pays a set monthly fee (paybale monthly or annualy)…

      Well it’s a drizzly Monday morning here in New Zealand and while I do have coffee, I sadly do not have cake. That garden variety head cold I was battling last week is still hanging around and kicking my ass. I’ve spent most of the past ten days curled up in a blanket with hot blackcurrent tea and bad television. While I’m still not 100%, I am a lot better this morning so have embarked on operation catch up. I have had a heads up that there is another box of books being released from customs – so hopefully some time in the next six weeks they’ll land. I’ll…

    Yes I know, I’m hitting your screen a little late. In my defense, my eldest son got married on Saturday so I have been a little distracted. If you are a member of my FB reader group, Cocktails and Denim, there are some lovely photos of the day. After a fairytale day, during which I seemed to spend my time alternating between bursting with pride for all three offspring (my other son was best man, and both he and my daughter spoke at the reception) and pretending I was NOT crying, I woke up yesterday with a stupid cold; today I feel very much like I was hit by a runaway…

    ​ It’s ANZAC day in my corner of the world. A day when we remember the Australia & New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) soldiers who fought at Gallipoli – and subsequently those soldiers who have been sent to other wars throughout the years – and the many who didn’t come home.From small areas around New Zealand young men were sent to the other side of the world to fight. Two young men from my partener’s family lost their lives on August 8 in the battle of Chanuk Bair. In that same battle on that same day, a man by the name of Ernest Jurd also gave his life – some…

    Gosh it’s good to be home again. After ten days with my mum, I am now in catch up mode as I face nine weeks of complete and utter insanity. Visits with doctors, thesis submission, three books to finish and release, and most importantly of all my first born kiddo is getting married in two weeks – and apparently the mother of the groom is expected to be sort of normal. I don’t know gang, maybe he should hire a stand-in. I’m surviving mostly on pizza, coffee, and sheer bloody mindedness at this stage. I’d really love to add a yoga routine to the insanity and if anyone knows of…
