Book Promotion: It’s a Family Affair

I’m going all out, over the next few months, building my email list ahead of my second book. I don’t promote freebies on here much, but thought the readers among you might find something in this general fiction promotion that my Taniel: A Corrangorachian Fantasy is in.

“It’s A Family Affair” celebrates Father’s Day, held third Sunday in June each year in USA, Canada, UK, France, India, China, Japan, Philippines and South Africa. (In Australia, it’s in September.)


My story is a bit on the melodramatic side, well, maybe more than a bit, but hey, it has fans.

Despite the fantasy and magic, my underlying theme is family and all point-of-view characters have a some sort of relationship with the Taverner’s daughter. During the final rewrite, Taniel’s father ended up playing a far bigger role than I had anticipated, so Taniel slots in well with a Father’s Day theme.

There are over 50 books on offer, some might be samples,  delivered by BookFunnel, and since the promotion is aimed a list-building, you exchange your email address for the book/s of your choice. Of course, you can unsubscribe from author’s lists at any time.

On of my favourite pictures of my dad, taken by me with a Box Brownie in the early 1970s.







Some local scenery, behind town, taken a few days ago with my old Nokia Lumia 520 Windows Phone. It’s cold in southern Australia. Winter is well and truly here!

Thanks for looking.



Other Stuff

Stormy skies & kanagaroos


These pictures were taken back when I took the other kangaroo photos. There’s always one or two big ‘roos hanging about on their own. Keeping an eye on things, it seems.


When we had that small one in our yard, I wondered what they eat when there isn’t much grass about. Apparently they eat dried grass. After all, I suppose it’s like hay, except still standing in the paddock. They don’t like really scratchy stalks though, it hurts their mouth. Also, one can buy kangaroo pellets from stock-feed stores to feed starving animals. Handy to know.



Thanks for looking.
