This has been one helluva year for me! For the first time ever, I got to experience what it feels like to be a real author - I attended two amazing book signings! The first event was Indie Authors Down Under (read about my experience here) and then there was the Sydney Author Event (see my last post here). It was such an honour to be an 'attending author' at both of these events! I loved meeting some of my favourite authors and readers, and making new connections, too.
Some of the very best people I have met this year are my street team members. Megan’s Minions have made this year one to remember! Their kindness, friendship and support mean the world to me and I'm so happy to be able to share this journey with them. They have given up their time to pimp my work, read and review my books, and make me some bloody awesome teasers, too. (Check out my Pinterest boards to see what they have done by clicking here.) One in particular stands out for me, it makes me get teary whenever I read it...
There is nothing I love more than to hear from a reader that has connected with my characters and stories. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to every reader that has picked up one of my books and given it a whirl. Thank you to the ones that have contacted me, by commenting on my page or sending me messages, to share their thoughts. A particularly large thanks to those that have taken the time to leave a review. Words cannot express how life-changing you all are!
Somehow this year I published six titles, entered the Top 100 Erotic Romance Authors on Amazon a couple of times and my books reached Number 1!!! more than once in different genres on there too, and I still managed to work on upcoming projects. (Yeah, I was a little busy!)
Next year promises to be even bigger! I have another two signings - You can catch me at Readers and Writers Downunder (now taking pre-orders for this one here) and Fictionally Yours, Melbourne. My goal is to publish another five titles in 2015 (we'll see how that goes!) each a little different from the last. Lots of exciting surprises in store!
As the year comes to a close I just want to wish each and everyone of you all the best for the festive season! I hope your holidays are spent with family and friends and are full of laughter and love. Thank you for your support.
I'll see you all next year!
I'll see you all next year!

I think the organisers of the Sydney Author Event started planning about the time I started writing! All that hard work certainly paid off! SAE was a wonderfully put together event. The Ivy was a lovely place to hold the signing and the cruise at the end of the long day was a stroke of genius! I had an absolute ball interacting with fellow readers, some I'd met before and plenty I hadn't. It was a great way to meet some of my street team too! As with all things that you look forward to so much, the event kind of went by in a blur - the day ending far too quickly!
A personal highlight for me was being seated next to the fabulous Raine Miller. I was more than a little starstruck to beside Mr. Ethan Blackstone's creator!
It was amazing for me to be in the same room as my idols! I was a bit tongue tied to meet R.K. Lilley and Samantha Young...
Of course, I didn't get nearly enough photos on my camera! Or enough books signed for me, but I sure did sign a lot of things that day! It was fantastic to see all of the photo books people made but when I came across this particular scrapbook I was blown away (maybe even a little teary).
Thank you Phillippa Taylor, you sure know how to make a girl feel special!!! I appreciate all of the time you put into creating something so awesome!
Thank you to the organisers of this event that I will never forget! And thank you to the people that stopped by my table to say hello, the day was filled with smiley faces!
I would like to give a special thanks to my beautiful daughter Madi for helping out on the day and to Leann for keeping us both organised. And to Sydney for the beautiful weather, views from the boat and the fireworks!
