It’s Almost Time…


…the Anteater said.

As regular followers will know, tomorrow is publication day for my novel CHILDREN OF THE DIFFERENT, an Australian Young Adult post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure. Visit the Amazon page here.

I announced this project back in April, but I have been preparing for publication since January (the actual writing of the novel started way back in 2012). So, it has been a long journey, and we are nearly there. Thanks to everyone who has helped or encouraged me along the way.

Advance reviews have been very encouraging; on Goodreads, CHILDREN currently has 27 ratings and 24 reviews, with an average rating of almost 4/5.

A similar pattern appears in the reviews that have appeared on sites so far:

“Children of the Different is trippy and surreal, and is a thought-provoking adventure.” – Books Without Any Pictures Read the full review here

“What I found…was an interesting world with intelligent characters, always an enjoyable combination for me.” – Rachel Noel (Purple Owl Reviews) Read the full review here

“Children Of The Different is a bright star in the sky that will light up your imagination!” – Red Star Reviews Read the full review here

“It was an interesting story that had me hooked.” – Books for Life Read the full review here

“At times, it was beautiful and strange, and at other times I was biting my nails in anticipation of what would happen to our heroes.”Dab of Darkness Read the full review here

“I really enjoyed the book. Siblings are still a rather rare choice for protagonists and both Australia and the dream world were interesting settings” – Mervi’s Book Reviews Read the full review here

The audiobook version is already out on Audible and reviewers are loving the performance of narrator Stephen Briggs (so do I).

I was very pleased that Tor.com included CHILDREN in its latest roundup of publishing in Australia/NZ. The artwork chosen for the article looks very familiar… .
