Release of Book Two

First things first — Happy New Year! Hope that all my lovely readers have a fantastic time in 2014.

Of course, today is special for me for another reason too. It’s time for Chasing the Valley 2: Borderlands to officially hit the bookshops. Hooray!

It’s such a thrill to walk into a shop and find my series on the shelf. This is my first sighting of Borderlands in a bookshop (at Dymocks Glen Waverley):

2013 was a HUGE year for me. I’ve loved working with the awesome team at Random House. Not only did my first book come out, but I was also lucky enough to experience my first TV and radio interviews, school talks, library visits and even a book launch party.

It’s hard to believe, but 2014 is going to be even bigger. Not only is Book 2 out now, but Book 3 is only six months away! (As Teddy Nort put it: ‘If I’d known the party games were gonna be that full on, I would’ve brought my croquet mallet.’)

Thanks for all your support in 2013. I truly appreciate every email, tweet and review. It means so much to me to hear that people are enjoying the series.

Hope you all have fun reading Borderlands and have a blast in 2014!
