Thanks Amber for the suggestion to have a thread for just Aussie author new releases:) It certainly would be easier to find them, if you are looking for just our Aussies. Please post any you find!

He was here in Canberra last November for a book signing and to publicise Angels of Vengeance. Hopefully he'll be back soon. Actually, he used to live and work in Canberra before he was 'famous'.
