First chapter of Jacaranda

Posted on 15 May, 2012 at 20:47

G'day!

Hope you are having a glorious day. It was 10 degrees here in Dimbulah when I woke up this morning...freezing for us Northerners! I know, nothing like the winters down south but our homes aren't built for the cold. Well, that's my excuse anyways! :)

I am thrilled to be sharing the first chapter of Jacaranda with you all today. Only 8 more sleeps until the official 
release date! Although, I have heard there are some stores with Jacaranda already on the shelf...not that I'm complaining about that of course! 

I have also changed my book signing tour. Instead of travelling down the coast I will be flying straight to Brisbane and doing signings around the city and also in places like Toowoomba and Ipswich. It's going to be lovely to meet the readers! I will post the dates up on my website and also on facebook over the next week. 

So, without making you wait any longer, here it is, the first chapter of my second novel, Jacaranda. 


Until next week, keep smiling and dreaming
Mandy :) xx

Hello Mandy, loved Rosalee Station and look forward to reading Jacaranda when I see it in the shops here where I live on the north coast of NSW. Love reading about living on Aust farms and stations. We live on 181 acres and enjoy the lifestyle very much.
Thanks for writing the books and I look forward to many more.

Hi! I downloaded the first chapter of both your books, but I'm too afraid to read them. I usually know by a book's cover + back if I'm going to like it or not, and I just know that I will love your books. I'm on a holiday here in Australia and I haven't got much space left in my bag so I can't buy your books yet. Will do so before I leave so I have something to read on the flight back home (30 hours). Am really looking forward to reading the books! I'm just glad that I found them today in Dymocks Brisbane. Saw that you will be doing a in store signing there soon, but unfortunately I will be leaving Brisbane on the 10th and can't make it. Anyways, keep writing!
