5 Stars, Baby!

Greetings. I have some exciting news to share with you all.

First of all, Sassy Book Lovers reviewed my novel, Pieces of Us, and gave it 5 STARS!!! I'll be honest and say that I was blown away by this. I had to read the review several times before it sunk in. I thought I would share the link with you so you can all read it. -  http://networkedblogs.com/u9zZe?a=share - It's so exciting!!

In other exciting news, Omnific Publishing released a compilation of short stories last year with all the money going to breast cancer research. This project was a huge success and we were able to raise thousands of dollars for cancer research, which is a cause close to my heart. Omnific, being the generous publishing company that they are, are now releasing all those short stories as FREE ebooks. That's right, folks - FREE! You can download my FREE ebook, The Second Sunrise, here -http://omnificpublishing.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=38_40&products_id=69

In other exciting, but not writing related, news the city I live in, Cairns, undertook a Guinness Book World Record Attempt on Tuesday this week. We wanted to have the greatest number of people doing a Zumba class in one location, at the same time. The previous record holders were in the UK with 2012 people doing a Zumba class. Some people in Melbourne made an attempt at this record recently and only got 1500 people attending so we were all nervous that Cairns wouldn't make the cut. So, after work on Tuesday afternoon I headed to the designated location and was counted into the arena, met up with some friends and Zumbaed our asses off in the rain. It was a great time with lots of cheering, laughing and calories burned away. After the class, we were informed by the Guinness officials that we had managed to get 3105 people!! We smashed the previous world record by over 1000 people!! GO CAIRNS!! Here are a few pics that I took on the day -



Update on The Time Walker -

I finished my second read through/edit and am working hard on polishing the writing. It's all very exciting because it's actually starting to resemble a novel.

Talk to you soon,
