August 1st was my youngest son’s birthday and he’s just turned 16. This means he is old enough to start learning how to drive. Having been though this with one kid, I am a bit more Zen about it than last time but even so, I am letting my husband do the first ten hours as the supervising driver!
He is my baby and it seems appropriate that on his birthday, Mills & Boon Australia re-released my first four novels …my book babies…in eBook format. They titled the anthology, Fiona Lowe’s Babies. Australian and NZ readers can buy it now. Amercian readers only have to wait until August 12th….not long! 🙂
The weather in southern Victoria is truly atrocious at the moment with wind and rain and hail and snow so it’s perfect reading weather. If you’ve only been reading my books in the last few years you may have missed Pregnant On Arrival (2006), Her Miracle Baby (2006), The Nurse’s Longed-For Family (2006) and The French Doctor’s Midwife Bride (2007).
Set all around Australia from the red dust of Broken Hill to the lush rainforest of the Otways, and the snow of the high-country, these four books feature second chances, new begingings, lots of medical drama and yes, there are babies 😉
It’s been really chilly here with mornings of zero degrees Celcius and below. Here is a picture of Maggie-May, cow-dog extraordinarie who featured in Picture Perfect Wedding, standing on the lily frozen lily ponds and not impressed at all by the white frost!
On Thursday, I am setting off to Sydney…where I am told it is warmer… for the Australia Romance Writer’s Festival and the Romantic Book of the Year awards. I’m looking forward to catching up with readers and fellow writers….it’s always great to refill the well.
