Hi all! Here’s a link to the Second Life book club event I’m doing in one hour! Should be awesome. It’s streamed to facebook, youtube, and can be enjoyed in world too. The video can be watched afterwards if you’ve missed out 😀
This could have been a terrible moment… but it wasn’t! It was the best! @cakeandmadness is an #ownvoices reader who share’s Peta’s diagnoses/neurodivergence. I’m so relieved she rated Peta Lyre FIVE STARS!!!
I cried happy tears when I finished reading – it was so good and so validating to feel SEEN; to see someone like me written BY someone like me.

Pre orders are open all over the place, including Booktopia!
On Thursday last week I had a *creative life moment* when my name reached print for the first time! Allen & Unwin held the #YAFanFest19 superproof event in Melbourne, and I was lucky enough to have the first two chapters of Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal included!
The list of authors on the panel was impressive: @elliemarney, @AmieKaufman, @garthnix, @garthnix and @AstridScholte!!!! And check out the other names on this contents page – Scott Westerfeld? OMG.
Here is me looking big on a big screen….
Some great friends from my #6amAusWriters twitter group were there and sending me sneak previews of the superproof (thanks Belinda and Kate!). My awesome agent does the best Insta posts!
All in all, it was an incredible event and I’m so lucky to be supported in this way by my publishers <3
(also, yes, I’m clearly not a blogger, this is just news, straight up!)
