Keep Up, Kaz!!!!! You can Pre-Order! Duh!!!

The Reluctant Jillaroo can be pre-ordered! And is it bad of me to want to go and order 50 copies!!!?  100?

Okay, so I’m always behind the eight-ball. The world always seems to steam ahead and I’m left coughing up dust wondering what just happened.

Take this week for example: What did I do? I revealed my cover to the world. Well, at least to my precious family, friends and readers.  Proudly, I  let you all into my big secret. The secret of my gorgeous cover. The cover that no one had seen.


WRONG! (Can you hear that heart-sinking ‘bong bong’? You know the one…  It’s the one that accompanies every wrong answer on every television quiz show ever invented.)

Why? What happened?

Well, after I’d proudly performed the cover reveal, I did a random Google of the title because, well – there’s no because. I just did.  I expected to find nothing.

 I didn’t. In fact I found heaps! Images of my secretly held cover are everywhere! And what’s more it’s up for pre-order. And I didn’t even know!!!  Did you? I bet you did… Sigh.   So my beautiful friends and readers who live too far away to join me at one of the launches either here or in Scone – you can pre-order! Right here at Booktopia if you’d like.

Forgive me for seeming pushy – those of you who know me know that’s not the way I operate. But you know, I just love this book so much that I sooo want it out there so others can share and hopefully love it the way I do. I want to keep looking at it, I want to talk about – and I want your opinion!

And if you somehow missed the hullaballoo last week – here’s what it’s all about. For those of you who celebrated with me, be warned. It’s happening again. I’m revealing all over again! 😉 I told you I’d be hopeless about this book! So, quick! Close your eyes! But most of all – don’t forget that competition. I’m off to a book launch tomoz (at MacLeans Bookstore) and I’ll be searching for the best titles to add to those bookpack prizes!

Remember it’s still open until the 23rd  which is next week! (Because I can’t count and I thought today was going to be the 23rd. Good thing I write books and don’t write Federal Budgets. Because, you know, of the ‘not being able to count’ thing…Then again, fiction is fiction. Right? 😉  )

The Reluctant Jillaroo

Kaz Delaney
AUD $16.99
 Surf-loving Heidi impersonates her horse-mad twin to help Harper get a scholarship to attend the much sought-after agricultural school in this rural romance from Australia’s queen of teen, Kaz Delaney. Suitable for teen readers of Rachael Treasure.

Harper Gage has won the opportunity of a lifetime – ten days at Winmaroo Jillaroo and Jackaroo school. The camp could give her the recommendation she needs to go to the exclusive Agricoll for years 11 and 12. But when an accident leaves Harper hospitalised, her twin sister, Heidi, goes in her place. The only problem is that Heidi is not much of a country girl – not like her sister. And to make life even more complicated, her sister’s biggest rival Trent is going to be there. Will she be able to fool him?

And then the reality of the school hits Heidi hard. It’s all dust, snakes and heat – a million miles away from the surf she loves. When she meets the fun and handsome Chaz, life at the school suddenly doesn’t seem so bad, although with Trent acting up and trouble brewing with the other students, Heidi’s not sure how long she can keep her identity secret. And if her secret is revealed, will Chaz ever be able to trust her again.
