New Website and Blog


Wow! It’s mid-November already. Can you believe it?

What a year for so many of us due to COVID-19. I hope we’ll all soon put this year behind us (if it’s been difficult) or embrace it (if it’s been good). I’m looking forward to 2021.

One thing I planned to do this year was a new simplified website (more so than a blog). I accomplished that with https://www.donnamunroauthor.com/ Yes, my own little author domain. Please check it out and sign up to my new blog and newsletter. I’ll be concentrating more on the author life than life in general. I have big news breaking soon!

Now restrictions have eased I have a book signing

Saturday November 21st 10 am – 12 noon

With Covid-19 it’s been a while since my last sighing. I didn’t even have a book launch for Elephant Creek which is disappointing. Appearing at Annie’s Books on Peregian is a terrific opportunity to showcase my books. Annie’s is a famous little bookstore with the outside footpath area a perfect place to set up my book-signing table, with people passing by and popping in often.

If you’re a Sunshine Coast local, come pop by and say hi. I’ll have a little competition going to win my books, mouse pad and pen.

Venue address: 8 Kingfisher Drive, Peregian Beach


For Gold Coast locals all books are still available from Karen and Rob at Currumbin Creek Newsagency on Currumbin Creek Road.

With Elephant Creek being set in Currumbin Valley there’s plenty of local spots mentioned in the book, especially Currumbin Creek.

I’ve had some busy months, both with work (admin and graphic design) and writing (which includes marketing my books). The latest manuscript is complete. Yay!  I was lucky enough to polish this story through the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance Manuscript Development Project, with Dr Melanie Myers. Melanie is the award-winning author of Meet Me at Lennons.
The next story is six chapters in and flowing well. Both will be stand-alone books where I’m seeking publication rather than self-publishing. There are many reasons for this move. I’ll keep those secrets for now, but I hope to update you before Christmas.
For those living in Victoria, I’m glad your life can finally get back to normal (the new normal at least). I’ve been thinking of you.
Enjoy Christmas shopping and don’t forget to buy books as gifts. You’ll not only make a writer happy but a reader too.
Love, hugs and reading happiness,
Donna
