Hello Gorgeous Readers – are you ready?


Hi my gorgeous readers,

The latest newsletter has a fab new look. Are you ready to read about the upcoming release of Elephant Creek?

Here’s some of what you’ll read:

I have exciting news. Yes, the new book Elephant Creek is almost ready to send out Advance Review Copies to my editors and beta readers. Yay!

This means I will meet the deadline of March 25th for the release of Elephant Creek. It happens to be my anniversary too. Yep, I have my own love story (32 years of it in fact).

So, I’m introducing Noah Cooper. Okay, for those of you who’ve read The Zanzibar Moon and Kendwa’s Secret you may be thinking – what the – ?

In this stand-alone story of Noah and Emma I do conclude all things ‘Zanzibar Moon’ and here’s a secret – Noah Cooper is Kendwa’s brother (yep, Toby) and it’s complicated but it will all make sense when you read the book. I promise.

If you’d like to pre-order it would make my day and you’ll get a signed copy and new bookmark when they do. I may even have a competition.

Yours truly in love-stories, happiness and writing,

Donna

P.S. There will be more news about release dates, book launches and other events soon.

A wonderful review, new life and working for RWA


Sorry I’ve been absent from this blog. To say a lot has been going on is an understatement. I made a big move, began new jobs, decorated a lovely home (including home office), helped the dog adjust to the move (she’s snoring under my chair right now. I guess that means she’s settled), finalised some ghost writing jobs, tried to add to my manuscript (unfortunately not often enough), worked long hours, took in the sights of the new town, had visitors, celebrated another birthday (mine), saw more of the grandchildren and numerous other things that seem to keep me from this blog.

I promised myself a couple of weeks ago that I would write a post. Finally here it is.

In April I took on the role as Administrative Assistant at RWA (Romance Writers of Australia). Wow, I could hardly believe I could get this dream job and another with Design Stuff. Working from home with the collaborative, wonderful bunch of people at RWA has been amazing. I love that I get to help other writers live their dream, guiding them to an OWL (Online Writing Lab), which Facebook or Google group to join, how to become a member, what the membership provides and how to purchase tickets for the Melbourne Conference 2019 among other things – is a joy.

So you can see I have been busy but yes I am still writing. I am an author. The next book will be finished (eventually) and published for you to read. Bear with me.

At one of the events I was involved in this year Books by the Beach (Mooloolaba) I met lovely Ann-Maree Howarth. When she said she reviewed books I offered her a copy of The Zanzibar Moon. Here is her excellent review:

Ann-Maree Howarth‘s review

May 31, 2019
really liked it
What an adventurest tale this book was from a heartbreaking New Year’s Eve to all the wonders of Africa. This has been the first paperback I have read in a while and I must say I really missed this form of reading. Donna Munro is a new author to me, an this is the very first book she has published. As an Australian, I really enjoyed the Australian lingo and quirks along the way. The flow of the story was good, it will hold your attention and keep you wanting to read and find out more. The author did also include a lot of African words and meaning to give you a very authentic feel to the story and you just might learn a few new words of African along the way. This kind of reading might be a bit of a distraction at first but stick with it the story will flow better after the author has given us a full description of Africa and the characters within it.
During this story will find our heroine travelling from her little suburban home in Australia to the dynamic country of Zanzibar where she is volunteering to find herself again. Alkina finds herself an empty nest and a too-time cheating husband at the start of a new year so she decided to fulfil her dream of going to Africa.
Dr Don Cloutier wanted Ali.
Kendwa wanted Ali.
Shaun wanted Ali.
Even Roger wanted Ali back.
Ali fell in love with the magic of Zanzibar and loved her job at the shelter helping the single mothers open up the old resort to support themselves and their children.
Will she find magic in the arms of another man? Could she just have a holiday romance and then return home to her children and friends? Or will this working holiday change her life forever?
“Maybe there is magic on Zanzibar after all.”
This book is full of wonder, magic, sadness, hope, regret, strength, sorrow, joy, love, chemistry, family, heartache, wildlife and most of all adventure that will fill you as you read. There was some part of the story I went really……but it was not my story to tell but the authors. It was a lovely change to the books I have been reading and I totally enjoyed this book even though I have had it sitting next to my bed for the last few months.description
Thank you Anne-Maree, you made my day when I read this review.
