The Lending Rights mail came today! Huzzah lovely money for me based on the number of my books on the shelves in Australian libraries. This is always a lovely bonus each year, but it's such a slow turnaround I have to remind myself it's basically a report from two years earlier. All the work I did last year (and continue to do this year) to get my newer books out there won't be reflected until next year. Or even later. It's like that old shampoo commercial where the model said, 'It won't happen overnight, but it will happen.'
And it *is* happening.
What frippery should I splurge my hard-earned on, folks? Oh, silly me, I know what I'll spend it on . . . MORE BOOKS!
Lots of things are happening and it's a little bit brilliant.
My seventh book, The Girl & The Ghost, is a RuBY finalist. What is the RuBY? It's the Romantic Book of the Year. The winners will be announced at the RWA national conference in August.
Come and share the love. Here’s the full list of Ruby finalists for 2018. When you read one, tag it with #RubyReadAlong in your posts or reviews.
Below you’ll find direct links to buy the books from your ebook retailer of choice. Simply click on the book titles to go to a store.
If you want the paperbacks, I recommend looking them up on booko.com.au.
