New releases from members this August

It’s August – the last official month of winter. Sometimes wind and rain sweeps down. Sometimes the daffodils come early. Always there is the RWA conference to motivate and inspire a novelist. If you’re looking for something to read on the plane on the way to Brisbane, your fellow members have obliged with a swag of new releases.

June new releases

Congratulations to all our members with new releases out this month. The temperatures have dropped nationwide, so now is the perfect time to pick a few good books, cuddle up under your doona and get swept away in worlds of adventure, intrigue and romance.

“The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.”
– Emily Dickinson

Happy 1 September everyone. I can certainly feel Spring in the air, taking the chill off mornings and extending daylight in the evenings. This means, of course, more light to read by 🙂

February New Title Releases

February is the month of love. As we look forward to Valentine’s Day, here is a snapshot of some of the new releases available from our members. I’m already poised to click ‘purchase’ on my laptop for several of them!

Remember that we would love the opportunity to hear about your new release and  let all your RWA compatriots know about it too. You can upload covers through the member section of the website. Please login, then go to Published? under the MyRWA drop down menu and choose the ‘send new releases to Hearts Talk‘. Your cover will also appear on the website and be posted to Pinterest.

The deadline for covers is the 8th of the month prior to publication (e.g. If your release is 1 March, your email must be received before the 8 February). This service is available to MEMBERS ONLY. If your cover runs late for any reason, you are welcome to submit it the next month.

February 2016 New Releases

January New Releases

Happy New Year everyone. Isn’t January the most wonderful month in Australia? The skies are blue, the mood is sunny and the books are fabulous! This month our members are offering 37 new releases covering every genre and written by established favourites and hot new authors.

I plan to crack open a bottle of bubbles, peruse this list at my leisure, and then choose at least one title by a favourite author and one by an author I’ve never read before. Why don’t you do the same and help to spread the love?

January 16 New book releases

November new title releases from RWA members

Can you believe it? November already, and the countdown to Christmas is quickening its pace and squeezing 24 hours into 20 hours max. At least, that’s how it feels to me. If you need to take a deep breath and a time out amidst all the mistletoe madness, try one of these new releases. As usual, there is something for everyone. Enjoy.

If you’re looking for some additional inspiration, look no further than your fellow writers. To be a writer is to be a reader and there are plenty of good new books available in all the sub genres this month. Happy reading 🙂

I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the country, but here in Sydney it is cold and wet, the sun rises late and sets early. Uggh! The only good news is that all the extra hours indoors mean more reading time.
