Special Delivery!

July has started with a bang! The #STRAY cover reveal happened on July 1st. A fun simultaneous interweb blasting from the #SparkArmy as multiple YA bloggers participated in the BIG share. Check out the Twitter hashtag here.

It was particularly exciting to read reactions to the blurb and its hints of high drama:

Stray final cover

The first copy of Stray was delivered to my home on July 6th. Here’s my happy hand clutching the bookish goodness. THANK YOU Walker Books Australia! I LOVE IT!


I spent the afternoon stroking the beautiful laminate cover and sitting it next to its older sister to admire it from every possible angle. They just look soooo good together.


Check out the spines. See how they form a picture of the tree? Fancy!


Close-up! So, so preeeeeeetty!


And there’s more to look forward to in the build up to September 1st when #STRAY is released in bookstores throughout AU & NZ. At the end of the month Walker Books Australia are releasing my new short story Black Room. Follow the countdown here.
