Happy Publication Day – ‘Dark Mode’ By Ashley Kalagian Blunt

Happy publication day @akalagianblunt DARK MODE – what a fantastic year for new fiction and already another one of those books that you need to read – no spoilers, my blurb below but it is an excellent read with a story and ideas that haunt you…

‘Wow. Page turning, chilling dread that kept me guessing until the end. Ashley Kalagian Blunt hits it out of the park, creating a dark world where your worst fears aren’t the worst thing to fear – not even close.’

Not. Even. Joking. 🫣

Congratulations @akalagianblunt 🤩Huge! 🖤 DARK MODE is out today in Australia /NZ @ultimopress 🚀📖

Sneak Peak – Happy Millionth Birthday

Another sneak peek thanks to my awesome publisher 😍💖REPOST • @larrikinhouse We’re being a little bit rebellious revealing preliminary illustrations of an upcoming picture book before they’re ready, BUT HOW AMAZING ARE THEY???

The Nancys author RWR McDonald knocks it out of the park with this cheeky book full of dark humour and unexpected endings!

This book is an ABSOLUTE RIOT, and will be available later in the year!

Illustrated by the super talented Alexandra Columbo (My EXTRAordinary Mum) it has been extremely cool watch this one emerge!
