Bottlebrush and Friarbirds!

You know summer is on the way when the noisy friarbirds reappear in the garden! They are such funny-looking birds, but their calls are so weird they’re cute. They’re constantly chatting to each other.

This Bird!

I know young birds are supposed to be scruffy, but this is ridiculous! This poor currawong turned up in my garden recently, and is getting picked on by the bigger, older birds.

Book News!

Escape Cover Brief Header Sonya Heaney Second Book March 2020

^^^

As much cover information as I can share at the moment!

The first lesson any author learns about publishing is that you’ll go weeks without hearing from anyone – and then you’ll hear from everyone at once.

It’s been a busy twenty-four hours, with a tentative title for my next book decided on (I’ll share it when I know for certain what it is), and the information for my cover designer submitted.

So, I thought I’d share a few pieces of information about the next book:

 

  • It will be out in March 2020.

  • You haven’t met the hero yet.

 

  • The story begins in September of 1887, which is two years after the first book ended.

 

  • There is more engagement with the Indigenous community than in book one.

 

I actually didn’t set out to write a trilogy. However, after I got working on the first one I realised there were other characters whose stories were unfinished. “Second Book Syndrome” is a term in the publishing world to imply the second one is the hardest. I’ll see how I go!

HOME!!!!

Sonya's Stuff

So, I’m back in Canberra, and the sun is shining (strongly), all the birds I’ve known since they were babies have reappeared on the front and back decks and have been looking at me desperately for food (it’s baby season in the Southern Hemisphere, and they had to eat CHEESE until I could get them some raw mince), and two paperback copies of The Landowner’s Secret were waiting for me on my front doorstep!

It was a fantastic decision to end the overseas trip in Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital – and where I’d been only a few weeks ago – because it’s such a friendly city, full of great food, lots of culture, and some great cats!

I made great friends with this half-grown black kitten. I wanted to adopt him! This is me with him on our front balcony in Tbilisi two afternoons ago. Also: check out the steep streets in the old town!
