Peta Andersen from Walker Books Australia advises about a Twitter chat with one of their top authors
Just thought you'd like to know we're doing a Twitter chat with author Alison Croggon about her new book, Black Spring, later today. It's at 8pm AEST, so around 10pm NZDT, I think. The hashtag is #blackspring. We also have an exclusive Facebook chapter sampler up on our page, facebook.com/walkerbooks aus – or you can get it at bit/ly/blackspring (or even by clicking the image below).
And, of course, here's a little more about the book and Alison:
Lina is enchanting, vibrant but wilful. And her eyes betray her for what she truly is a witch. With her childhood companion, Damek, she has grown up privileged and spoilt and the pair are devoted to each other to the point of obsession. But times are changing. Vendetta is coming. And tragedy is stalking the halls of the Red House. A stunning new novel by Alison Croggon, inspired by the Gothic classic Wuthering Heights.
Alison Croggon is an award-winning poet whose work has been published extensively in anthologies and magazines internationally. She has written widely for theatre, and her plays and opera libretti have been produced all around
