Crossings Launch


Crossings Launch

Last night was the local launch for Crossings right here at my library – who were fantastic and very supportive. I had a blast (despite the pressure of performing dialogue!) and hope everyone who came along did too :)

Thanks again to everyone who attended and helped out and to those who grabbed a copy of Crossings (or any of my other books for that matter) and if you weren’t able to make it – you can still buy a paperback via the link above or by contacting me here!


Buy Direct Option (for fiction)

Just a quick update to say that I’ve finally organised purchase links for my City of Masks site – so you can now buy signed paperbacks and ebooks directly from me!

All you have to do is visit a book’s page (via the images above) and choose between print (with either AU or international shipping) and ebook, using the PayPal ‘Buy Now’ buttons :)

is actually arranged to interrupt light
and the apple-worm is a pinkish-white finger

Holst, Mars (06 August 1945 – present day)

crushing rail, vehicular, and pedestrian traffic
is a semi-autobiographical novel
by another confectioner’s son

struck by a laundry truck
full of dirty atoms

(does an oven mitt have a liver?)

or a legacy of bones

the only food colouring in the factory is pink. Walter used it.

Here’s a poem with cut-up elements that I wrote a while back – the LANGUAGE Poets influence might be visible? I’m not sure but here it is, a blast from a few years back :)

‘Crossings’ Giveaways

Crossings (a dark fantasy) is in production as I type and will be on sale in October, so I wanted to open a few giveaways during the lead up – you can check out the details below :)

crossings - ebookIn the Australian bush, wildlife ranger Lisa Thomas must uncover the truth behind a giant white kangaroo and the strange deaths connected to it, while dealing with the return of her abusive ex, Ben, whose rage is quickly growing out of control.


I’m offering 3 ways to win a copy during the lead up to the release of Crossings:

1. Visit Goodreads and add the book to your ‘to-read’ shelf and you’ll be automatically notified when the Goodreads Giveaway goes live. (This one opens in Nov.)

2. Visit the ‘newsletter’ sign-up page in the top right of the site and that’s it – you’re in the running to win an e-copy of Crossings and you’ll also receive the eBook for A Whisper of Leaves upon sign-up. (The newsletter comp will be announced in Oct.)

3. Visit the Crossings page and check out chapter one (or click here, it’s probably quicker) and answer a simple question:

What does Lisa find on her doorstep?

Once you find the answer, just let me know by leaving a comment on this post OR by sending me an e-mail to mountain0ash[at]gmail[dot]com. The first two people to answer will win a print copy of Crossings :)
