Australian Author (as well as client of mine and really nice person) Kirsty Eagar today launched her new look WordPress Website. Her new book, Night Beach, was launched this month. Check out the trailer below.
From the judges of the Ethel Turner Prize for Young People’s Literature:
In this gripping novel published by Penguin Books, Kirsty Eagar gives a uniquely Australian slant to the vampire thriller. The story follows teenage surfer, Jamie, and his friends, as they set out to enjoy another summer in the quintessential beach-side town of Rocky Head. But this year, vampires are out and about and they’re heading for the annual music festival.
Using the historic backdrop of the 1629 wreck of the Batavia, in Western Australia, Eagar crafts a story that blends the contemporary lives and desires of a group of teenagers with the craven blood-lust of an ancient cartel of Dutch vampires.
With its clever and audacious plot, and the strong and believable characterisations of the principal teenage characters, this novel instantly engages and entertains.
