Hi and trust all is well with everyone. We have a short story appearing next Saturday (3rd December) on Capital Radio 101.7 around 11.00 am on the Capital Events Show with Tony Howes and Dale James.

We’re also offering special prices leading up to Christmas on my three novels, particularly if all three are purchased. As those who’ve read them know, they offer a different view on race relations, reconciliation and shared responsibility in Australia . Apart from enlightening some Australian to some of our history, feedback from those from other nations is that they find them entertaining and instructive. Feel free to let other people know about this offer.

Purchase prices until December 24th are as follows (provided orders are placed as instructed below):

  1. Purchase of any novel: $25.00 (15% off RRP)
  2. Purchase of any two novels: $45.00 (25% off RRP)
  3. Purchase of all three novels: $60.00 (33% off RRP)

(NB: A postage fee of $8.00 for one novel or $14.00 for two or three novels will apply unless other arrangements are made.)

If you prefer a copy of “The WILUNA Solution” as an audio-book rather than as a hard copy, just request when ordering.

To order, follow the instructions below:

  1. Email dave@aussieyarns.com with your desired order and titles
  2. State if the preferred copy of The WILUNA Solution is an Audio-Book
  3. Give your address for postage or state if you wish to collect. If it’s the latter, between us, we’ll arrange a date and time.
  4. We’ll forward an invoice for tax purposes and payment methods, and on receipt of payment, will confirm forwarding arrangements.

And finally, the first draft of novel number four, “Life Sentence” is nearing completion. It excites me as a story, particularly following Elaine fry’s lovely review of “Turn on a Light” in the West Australian. The new novel, more than any of the others, embodies her comment about my novels each being “an extension of reality”. It’s starting point in 1900 on Rottnest, an escape to the mainland in wild weather, an overland journey to the Pilbara, and the search for evidence to overturn the wrongful continued internment of an old Aboriginal man. Each of areas is based on historical detail and reality and has involved a lot of research. This includes the modes of arrest and sentencing of Aboriginal people in the last four decades of the 19th Century, their internment processes, the politics of government and the penal system, and the development of towns and the pastoral industry in the north of Western Australia in the same era.  I am now at the point of finalising the draft and getting ready to do the first sharing and revamp of the document. I hope to have it ready during 2017 for publication.

All the best for Christmas to you and your loved ones, thanks for your interest and support over the last three years in terms of my efforts in writing fiction, and all the best for 2017.
