Melbourne Supanova, Book Launch Date & eBook Promotions

Melbourne Supanova is coming…

Between 20th and 21st, April I’m road tripping with three other Adelaide Indie Authors, KE Fraser, Kylie Leane and Matt Pike.
And we’re planning a special treat for Melbournites attending – an exclusive gift bag (one on Saturday and one on Sunday) with items from all four indie authors by joining Aunt Enid in her favourite pastime – bingo! – with our Indie Author ‘bingo’ game.
Each author has added items from their merchandise stash (one complete set on both Saturday and Sunday of the event).My contribution to the gift bags are:
  • an original artwork (by me) mug -different mug on each day. (RRP: $20)
  • Smashwords voucher for an eBook copy of Doctor Jack (first novella in The Adventures of Viola series) (RRP: US$2.99)
  • Octoarm bookmark (metal hook bookmark with a dangly) (RRP: $5)
  • original artwork badge (RRP: $3)

Other items in both loot bags include:

  • Three tins of Monster Slime and/or Magic Slime (Matt) (RRP: $15)
  • Monogrammed cotton tote bag and 3 cord wraps (to wrangle pesky electronic cords) – made by Katie (RRP: $15)
  • a Semyueru (or Sami – a cybernetic fairy) plushie character from Kylie’s fantasy series, Chronicles of the Children. Each is unique in design, made by Kylie. (RRP: $40)

So, If you are in Melbourne, come along to the Supanova Artists’ Alley, say hello and play our Indie Author bingo. And don’t forget to  tell your friends!

Aunt Enid updates:

Work on Aunt Enid is chugging along but taking longer than expected. The official launch date has been rescheduled to the original: 14th May, 2018
(but I’m still working on getting her to print before Melbourne Supanova.)
I’ll be posting information on how to pre-order books (within Australia) in the coming weeks.

Gnomes have been elusive to find. I have 12 so far. Some will only be with me for a holiday. My friend, Adam, has offered to 3D print me some to add to their numbers. I’m hoping to have the book trailer out late April/early May.
