Hello all of you Kiwis.

I am not a New Zealander, but I wrote to your bureau of immigration once in the mid-90's regarding my wife and I relocating there.  You have a drop-dead gorgeous country!  We qualified, but we couldn't bear to leave our already-adult kids here in America, so we decided not to take the plunge.

But hey, Kiwis love a bargain as well as the next person, so get this epic length free download from most any online bookstore today, any format.



Available as a free download at Sony, Kobo, Smashwords, Apple, and most other online bookstores.


This is an epic length paranormal action vampire romance story that portrays vampires in ways that you have never seen.


Happy reading!

Hello everyone after such a long time. Just to let you know that my book, The God Franchise: A Theory of Everything, has been awarded top prize at the Ashton Wylie Book Awards 2012 at an award ceremony held in Auckland on Friday 24 August. I am rapt and humbled at the prestige of the Award as it is one of the top book awards in NZ - the prize is $10,000 so quite significant. It will also make marketing the book a bit easier!

Many blessings to you all, alan

Hi Guys,

I'm so glad I found this group. I'm an author and teacher in Tauranga and am trying to get some traction for my Young Adult novel Through Angel's Eyes. Please check out the trailer . . .

I'd love to do an interview and have you review my book, Angelique.

Please also check out my blog (a definite work in progress). . . but you can take the poll about which decade you'd prefer to raise kids (please do and leave a comment) . . .
