UK readers can win a free copy of No Other Darkness (Marnie Rome book 2) over on Goodreads right now (ends 10 April so be quick). Here's a new review, to whet your appetite:
An emotionally intelligent read, this story pulls apart the complexities of an unconventional family life; sometimes the danger to those we love is much closer to home than we can ever possibly imagine. The twists and turns that follow from the first gripping page to the final heart-wrenching conclusion had me reading this book in every free moment; it was utterly compelling from beginning to end and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Great-Great Uncle Arthur's ANZAC diaries retold in real time over on Facebook, alongside nine other people who served in the campaign. Watch it unfold, day by day, with photos and memories and snippets of personal and world history. Amazing. Until the team responsible got in touch about a month ago, I had no idea that Arthur had emigrated to Australia when he was just sixteen or that he'd lived quite the life there until (and after) he enlisted. What a great way to bring this history back to life. The Australians have a unique talent for capturing histories and making them feel relevant and poignant. Wonderful. Do follow the stories as they unfold over the next few days and weeks.
