REVIEWS

T.F.Walsh has received two reviews for Cloaked in Fur.
"This well-written paranormal romance is T.F. Walsh's debut novel. It doesn't play shy either. Right away, we're thrown into the story with intense action and a powerful love that sets the mood for the tale. It's dark and fast-paced with hold-your-breath suspense. A wonderful urban fantasy world has been created in the city of Brasov, Romania. Walsh paints vivid images with her descriptions and made me feel as if I were really in the Carpathian woods."

And this one;
"Daciana is a flawed and lovable character. I liked her spunk, wit, and smart ass comments. Each chapter added to the suspense. And the ending left me wanting more."

Maree Anderson’s latest YA release, Liminal, has been selected by iBookstore Australia/New Zealand editors as one of their Best Books of August. Here’s what the editors had to say:
“Self-published Kiwi author Maree Anderson has already established a loyal following with her Crystal Warriors series. In this novel, she embarks on a new storyline featuring Wren, a sassy 16-year-old who finds she’s starting to disappear from her life–literally! She teams up with mysterious bad boy Kade and learns a thing or two about living between worlds. This is great young-adult fun for fans of paranormal fiction.”





A swag of Darksiders will be attending the Australian Romance Readers Association Book Signing event at the RWA conference held in Fremantle, WA.

The signing will be held at the Esplanade Hotel, Marine Terrace in Fremantle, from 5.00 to 6.30 pm on Saturday 17 August. Full details, including the list of signing authors, are available here.
