I'm happy to see that my new novel "Gifts of the Peramangk" is beginning to receive some great reviews out there and one in particular I wanted to highlight was Wendy Hines' critique which went live over at the "Minding Spot" this past week.
Wendy praised the novel as "a poignant, thought-provoking novel that deals with the real issue of racism, and with characters that are so well developed, I wept for them and I cheered for their triumphs, however tinged they may be with diversity and hopelessness."
The Minding Spot is running a give away for a copy of the novel in digital format and I've pledge to send the winner a personally signed 'Peramangk' lobby card as an additional prize.
Likewise, the team over at the "Reading Lark" is featuring "Gifts of the Peramangk" and are offering their own giveaway of the novel in digital format. Again, I have offered to sign a lobby card for the winner and send it out to them.
This past week, author Rob Guthrie welcomed me to his RABMAD family. What's RABMAD? you ask. Well RABMAD stands for "Read A Book, Make A Difference". Essentially, it's a group of authors who have decided to give back by donating a portion of the sales of their books to a favorite cause. My chosen cause is the Michael Rice Center for Paediatric Haematology and Oncology here in Adelaide, South Australia. For more details on my RABMAD cause, hop on over to my page and take a look.
This coming Sunday, I will be signing copies of "Gifts of the Peramangk" for readers at Venturas Visions Gallery in Auburn, South Australia. If you are in the area, or are thinking about a day trip from Adelaide, why not stop by. I'll be conducting a talk about the novel as well as answering questions for readers.
For now, that's about it. But I'll be back soon with some new features.
