Hidden by Marianne Curley →
This was such a well-written review with intelligent insights I wanted to share it on tumblr where I have my own blog, Old Magic Mountain.
Images, Songs and Finishing Revisions
Hi everyone It’s been a while since I wrote in my Blog, and that’s because, as you may have guessed, I’ve been frantically busy writing. I had my editorial revisions for Book 2 given to me at Christmas time. I couldn’t start working on them straight away because Christmas is a time for families, and in the new year mother nature intervened in the form of the Queensland...
Thank you to all who braved the weather and came to Hidden’s launch yesterday at Marks & Gardner Gallery & Bookshop on Mount Tamborine, it was a wonderful, intimate event and I can’t thank you all enough. I met some amazing people there, too many to name, and signed a lovely mix of brand new and well-loved books from my deep past! It poured rain the whole time, but in a way it...
hayliemyers asked: I love your books. Just found out your releasing your new book very soon. Can't wait. Your Guardians of time trilogy are one of my favourite series I have ever read. I also enjoyed old magic. Can't wait to read your new series. Haylie

Six Weeks Until HIDDEN is Released
Hello everyone, I hope you all had a lovely time over Christmas and 2013 is off to a great start for you. My Christmas was spent with family and was exhausting but very special. My grandchildren Zach and Josie are becoming more adorable every day. And 2013 is up and running and keeping me ridiculously busy. A day or two before Christmas I got my editorial revisions for Book 2....
Old Magic for Taiwan
Hi everyone I had some lovely news yesterday, that Old Magic is going to be released in Taiwan in the Chinese language by Core Culture Group. It will be available in Hong Kong and Macau too. I mention this just in case you’re travelling there and want to spruce up your Chinese. Actually, I had quite forgotten there had been an offer way back in April last year, so it was a gorgeous...
Supernova Expo Brisbane 2012
Hi Everyone Last weekend I spent in Brisbane at the Supernova Pop Culture Expo and had a fantastic time, thanks to Sonia at Bloomsbury Australia for her amazing support and organisational skills, and my daughter Amanda, who was my assistant for the entire weekend and did an amazing job. We stayed in comfort and style at the Sofitel Hotel, which was just lovely and I would definitely stay there...
Last Minute Cover Change for Hidden
Hi everyone It’s been a long time since I last posted on my blog. I have no excuse except that I’ve been really busy doing what I love, and you all know what that is! So now Hidden is all complete and ready to go to the printers. But at the last minute my publishers decided to change the cover, so Hidden will look completely different than the cover I showed you earlier. I have...

HIDDEN - the Cover is Out!
Hidden will be released March 14, 2013. I can’t wait! For those of you who have been with me from the very beginning, when Old Magic was first released in October of 2000, followed by The Named, The Dark and The Key in 2004, you will know how long it has been. 2004 was the year I found out I had bone marrow cancer. Now I am eight years cancer free and eight years since my last published...
The Birthday Party
Hi everyone, I had a great time at my grandson’s birthday party yesterday. Even though he was sick with an ear infection, and was a little quieter than usual, and didn’t wil pass the parcel, he was a good boy. He played all the games, and shared his shiny new toys with all his friends who came and had a good time. I really enjoyed catching up with the lovely mum’s and...
Hi everyone I have just returned home from a very sad trip to Sydney to farewell my amazing mother who passed away on the 27th of April, 2012. At 88 she lived a long life completely devoted to her family. She had four children, of which I am the youngest, 14 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. She was loved by all who knew her and will be dearly missed. And waiting at home was an email...
Been too long...
It has been far too long since I last wrote on my blog, and I apologise for this. I have had a few personal issues to deal with as well as my final revisions for Hidden and working hard to make Book 2 a reality. Book 2 remains untitled at this stage but is progressing well. On the personal side, both my husband and my Mum are in hospital and have been for weeks. Actually, my mother has been in...
The Guardians of Time Book Trailer →
This book trailer for the Guardians of Time was created by Nancy Králová, a friend of mine from Facebook. The music is by E.S. Posthumus. I liked the trailer so much I asked her if I could put it up on my Blog. Thanks Nancy!
Busy Start to New Year
Hi everyone, hope your new year has started well. Mine has been busy with writing Book 2 of the Avena Series, anxiously awaiting my line edits and hopefully the last lot of revisions on Hidden (Book 1). Since Hidden is going to be released in July and August, depending on whether you live in the UK, Australia, NZ or the USA, time to complete revisions is growing tight now, so the pressure is on! ...

HAPPY NEW YEAR
Hi everyone, Happy New Year. It’s 2012 and the start of a new year brings hope to one’s heart. Whatever is in your heart, whatever you truly wish for yourself or others, I hope your dreams and aspirations come true this year. From my own experiences, I can tell you two things happen in life. One is how hard you try, how much effort you put into your dreams will go a long way to making...
NEW WEBSITE COMING
Hi everyone This is my first ever post and I’m excited to announce my new website is almost up and running. I’ll post again when it is officially up.

I have a few special people to thank, the most integral of those is Danielle, my daughter, who is an Interior Designer by profession. She took her designing skills...
