The story

Is the romance of the majestic Snowy Mountains enough to heal the wounds of the past?

The last time Katrina Delaney saw Jack Fairley was the morning after a one-night stand. Seven years later, she dreams of a missing boy – Jack’s son. Frantic with worry, Jack is willing to do anything to find his son, even though neither Katrina nor Jack have any reason to trust each other, or the attraction that flares between them.

Praise from Aussie bookbloggers for Snowy River Man

A nice mixture of suspense and romance, with a gritty plot and delightful characters; the word pictures painted of the countryside around the Snowy Mountains, the chill in the air, the blackness of the night sky plus the vividness and brightness of the stars – all was exceptionally well done. – Brenda Telford, Goodreads

Lovers of the outback and overseas audiences will enjoy the luscious settings, and the romantics will certainly appreciate this love story with a difference. – Deborah Cook from Debbish

With a dash of suspense, a sprinkle of romance and bucket loads of just great fiction you will be quickly immersed in this short, sharp and sweet tale that will warm your heart and leave you feeling content with the world at large. – Jess from The Never Ending Bookshelf

A quick, engaging read offering an appealing tale of love, betrayal, forgiveness and family… – Shelleyrae from Book’d Out

Correction: By Her Side out Dec 8

By Her Side largeJust goes to show you shouldn’t believe everything you see on Facebook.

When a writer friend congratulated me on today’s release of By Her Side earlier today, I didn’t question it. I just assumed the publishers had put it forward a week. Turns out she had the date wrong, not me.

Apologies if you rushed out to buy a copy only to find you had to preorder one instead.

If you didn’t see this morning’s post, you can read all about the new novel – and preorder it, if you’d like – here.

Launch giveaway winner announced

imageThe winner of the launch giveaway for Snowy River Man is Catherine McLean.

Catherine originally entered Book’d Out’s Australia Day Blog Hop giveaway, so I’m glad she won this time round.

So far, Snowy River Man has attracted several 5-star reviews on AmazonUS and an average of 4-stars on Goodreads.

If you do read and enjoy the book, I’d encourage you to write a review. It helps to get the word out there.

I’m surprised – and gratified – how many readers have found the book engrossing. Here’s what some have had to say:

I read this book in one night, it’s a real page turner, the plot is full of suspense, mystery, and when you’re sure of what is going to happen next, the author changes the direction and leaves you again, desperate to know how things are going to resolve! (Julia Damatto)

There is a lot of plot packed into Snowy River Man, which made for a fast, page-turning read. (Sam Still Reading)

I guess my love of suspense shines through. Even a confirmed crime reader enjoyed it. (You can read her review here.)

For everyone who missed out, you can buy Snowy River Man for around the price of a cup of coffee from Amazon USAmazon UKAmazon AustraliaBarnes and NobleBooktopiaBookworld, Google Play,iBooks StoreKobo, and the publisher: Escape. Remember, it’s in ebook format only.

Thanks for participating and happy reading!

Today’s the day – Snowy River Man released!

imageMy debut romance novel Snowy River Man is released today.

Snowy River Man is the story of city girl Katrina Delaney who dreams of a missing boy. She discovers it’s the son of a man she met years ago with whom she had a one night stand, Jack Fairley, a grazier from the Snowy Mountains Shire. Katrina is determined to help find Jack’s son, despite the painful memories that begin to surface, taking her back to a time in her life she would rather forget.

Here’s what one reviewer had to say:

I thoroughly enjoyed Snowy River Man which is the debut novel for Aussie author Lizzy Chandler. A nice mixture of suspense and romance, with a gritty plot and delightful characters; the word pictures painted of the countryside around the Snowy Mountains, the chill in the air, the blackness of the night sky plus the vividness and brightness of the stars – all was exceptionally well done… I have no hesitation in recommending Snowy River Man highly, and will be looking out for the author’s next title with interest. (Read the rest of the review here)

You can buy a copy of Snowy River Man at Booktopia, BookworldAmazon US, Amazon UK, Amazon AustraliaBarnes and Noble, iBooks Store, Google Play, Kobo, and Escape. (Note, it is available as an e-book only.)

I’ll be posting my about the writing of Snowy River Man over the next few weeks, but I can’t mark today without acknowledging my partner, and my friends and family. You’ve all watched me pursue my dream of publication for many years – years which have seen me abandon the dream and return to it time and again. Without your love, support and encouragement, I would never even have re-submitted this novel, let alone seen it published. Thank you – and I hope you enjoy the story!

First review of Snowy River Man – and it’s 5 star!

imageSnowy River Man, my debut romance novel, is being released on Sunday and the first review is out.

Over the past few years, I’ve heard a lot of warnings from authors, “Don’t read the reviews!” But when someone tags you on Facebook and says they loved your story, it’s very tempting to check out what they have to say. And I’m glad I did!

Brenda, a Goodreads librarian, writes:

For a first review, it couldn’t get much better and I’m thrilled. I’m so glad someone loved my characters and setting. When I read it out to my mum she said, “That sounds like a book I’d like to read!” I’ve always been a bit nervous about my family reading my work, but maybe it’s time to get her an e-reader?

Snowy River Man will be available from this Sunday, 22 February. You’ll be able to buy a copy at Escape, Booktopia, Bookworld and Amazon. (How come they’re all different prices?) I do hope you’re temped to read it.

Note: Book bloggers can still request a review copy on Netgalley for another four weeks, but you must use this link because it won’t appear on a search. Let me know if you have any trouble!
