Hi Carolyn

I'm really sorry, the timing on this one is unfortunate. The books officially went out of print this month, and so the publisher have taken them down from all e-vendors just in the last few weeks. I am currently looking at my options with a few other publishers, but I'm also putting some serious thought into crowdfunding to release my own editions in e-book as well as print.

I'll definitely make any announcements on a new edition here on GoodReads, and you might also want to sign up to my newsletter for updates on new releases http://tansyrr.com/tansywp/books/fake...

I'm so sorry to have such a disappointing answer! Having my rights back for these books is excellent in the long term but not great in the short term.(less)

Quotes by Tansy Rayner Roberts  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There's something beautiful about the perfect hashtag. Never underestimate what can be accomplished with a few carefully chosen characters strung together behind a number symbol.

At its purest, the hashtag contains and defines and reduces a massive idea down to a single word or phrase. The best ones offer subversive commentary on themselves.

Truly, the hashtag is the epic poem of the 21st century.”
Tansy Rayner Roberts, Girl Reporter

“Wine and conversation were all very well, but books were books were books.”
Tansy Rayner Roberts, Unreal Alchemy

“cum tantum sciat esse basiorum. (”

Talie Helene Hi Tansy. :-)


Rowena Daniells Hi Tansy,

Arghhh, another pass word!

Not sure what I'm going to do with this Good Reads thing.

I'm reading non fiction for research at the moment. A history of QLD. Believe me, Brisbane was like the Wild West (the real Wild West) in the 1850s.

Cheers, R.
