Zoe's Muster , the first book I wrote for Penguin Australia, is currently reduced to $2.99 at amazon and kobo, iTunes and any other ebook stores. If you haven't tried my longer books, why not grab this one while it's such a great price.



Also, I'm thrilled to say that Moonlight Plains is back in the book stores today with a lovely new cover starring Kitty and Ed. :)

I loved this novel's bleak, crazy, brilliant intensity. For me, it embodied the mysterious atmosphere of the Brontës and their novels and it perfectly echoed the morbid curiosity about this family that so many of us share.

Topics Mentioning This Author

George Sand
“One is happy once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness: simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.”
George Sand, Correspondance, 1812-1876, Volume 5

Carol Shields
“Open a book this minute and start reading. Don’t move until you’ve reached page fifty. Until you’ve buried your thoughts in print. Cover yourself with words. Wash yourself away. Dissolve.”
Carol Shields, The Republic of Love

Ira Glass
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
Ira Glass
