Big Girl Squee!

I’ve been sitting on this news for a while and now I can finally tell the world. Just as readers don’t only read in one genre, writers don’t only write in one genre.

I’ve been a fan of the crime thriller with paranormal elements for many years. I loved Laurell K Hamilton’s early Anita Blake books. I devoured Simon R Green’s Nightside series and I’ve always admired Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books.

I’m delighted to announce that  Clandestine Press  will be releasing The Price of Fame (approx March 2012). This is particularly thrilling for me because the publisher, Lindy Cameron,  is an award winning author in in her right and a founding member of Sister in Crime.

Lindy will be one of the Australian Guests of Honour at SheKilda, held in Melbourne, 7-9th October. Kudos to Lindy for starting her Indy Press Genre publishing house, Clandestine Press.

  1. Congratulations! Where do you find the time?

    Great news, and fantastic cover too. Different enough from the usual Paranormal-Whichever to really stand out.

  4. Wow. Did you base it on any bands of the time? Will there be an accompanying 80’s sound track.

    One of the best covers to come out of Clan Destine, too, Rowena: nice job! And what a lovely lesson in perseverance and hard work!!

    • Thanks, Jason. My DH, Daryl, did the cover. He and I both used to do covers back in the 80s in Melbourne. He’s going to do a book trailer for it, along the lines of the one he did for Trent’s Death Most Definite.

  6. Include it as some ebook extras 🙂

    Wow. Nice work. Started when you were 23 …. 10 years in the making, huh? 😉

  8. Congrats!! Very striking cover. When do we get more details?

    • Thanks, Glenda. I have a page on this blog with the back cover blurb. I’m just glad to see the story in print. I get very fond of my characters and if they don’t see reach reades I feel like I’ve let the characters down.
