NEW RELEASE!!! “Budgie Smugglers”

Book 4 in the Urban Hunters series, “Budgie Smugglers,” is out now.
Urban Hunters, Budgie Smugglers, Gary Taaffe, Aborigine, Australia, Tony Abbott, The liberal party, politics, the coalition
Kaz tells me this is easily the best yet with Billy and Amber making a great dynamic. Lots and lots of laughs.
Billy’s found a girl! Smack bang in the middle of the city, can he win her over with his hunting skills? Would Amber fancy a fat rump of rat for dinner, or perhaps some feral cat on toast for breakfast? And will his daring attempt at a comforting hug work out? Poor Billy hasn’t got a clue.
Threatened with eviction at the sharp edge of a shovel, the Urban Hunters strike a tasty deal with council-worker Norm to let them stay in the park. But when Norm’s about to bleed to death from a feral cat attack, can Larry, Curly and Moe save him?
And why is Billy so happy to be wearing a bikini? Will Amber be impressed with his budgie smugglers?
Tears, fears, love and guts, that’s Urban Hunters.
Get it here now -

Book 4 Finished Bar the Formatting

Such a relief - I just finished writing Book 4 in the Urban Hunters series- "Budgie Smugglers". That's editing changes and all. This one has been a bit of a marathon. I decided to add a few new chapters and an interesting glossary to explain some of our Australian spelling and colloquialisms. Turned out a really interesting exercise going into the background of our slang and why there are differences between our spelling and American spelling. Who caused the problem, the Poms or the Yanks? The answer may surprise you.

So now I'm in formatting mode which is beyond complex to do it properly. You can convert an MS Word doc but that's for amateurs as it will likely cause problems for the different eReaders. To do it properly I had to learn HTML coding which just about blew a fuse in my brain. All good now though so an announcement won't be far off. :) Best Blogger Tips

5,000 Twitter Followers and Counting

Wow! We just hit 5,000 followers on Twitter. And we're getting about 100 new followers every day. It's amazing. I spend about an hour every morning chatting with fans and I'm loving it. One kid in America said his school teacher set the class an assignment to learn about me and the series. How cool is that? Another kid said my books were the best books he's ever read in his entire life. That was ten year old Andrew from the UK. He'll be happy to know that I'm just tidying up the editing of book #4. I can't wait to tell him it's out. Best Blogger Tips
