"A unique and captivating story": ABC review

Another radio moment in the Nemesis Train adventure. My book was reviewed on the Saturday morning breakfast show on ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) radio in Brisbane this past weekend.

Of course, it all comes down to contacts and moments. The regular host of Saturday mornings was the MC at a publishers awards dinner at the beginning of October of which I was part. I had previously crossed paths with him and chatted to him for a couple of minutes on the evening. I took a long shot and asked him if he reviewed books on his program and that my new novel was set in Brisbane so could fit. He was interested, I sent him a couple of copies and so it goes.

You can check out their 3.5-star review at their blog.

There's a couple of good lines I will be able to cut-and-paste—with the weight of the ABC brand behind it—"a clever and talented writer" ... "a unique and captivating story."

Great to hear. Is it available at the ABC state or church)? I tried buying online from your publisher but their paypal stuffed up and they asked that I email them my credit card number - as if!
