I NEED to get rid of these last few copies of Feral Bells to clear the way for my second novel. If you would like a signed copy of Feral Bells, put $20 into the account listed below (this includes $7 postage so REALLY cheap!) and email your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once I confirm your payment, I’ll post the book(s) out the next day.
And if you’re in a book club looking for an economical read – I will drop the price to $100 for 10 copies (postage and handling not included).
Name: Peta Whitney
AUTHOR and mummy blogger, Peta-Jo, is launching her second book this year.
The award-winning Queensland writer released her debut novel, Feral Bells, in 2012.
The romantic-comedy won a scholarship before being picked up by Four Ingredients’ co-author Rachael Bermingham and her Sunshine Coast-based distribution company.
Feral Bells is a “laugh out loud” funny story of a young north Queensland woman trying to make it big in Brisbane. It explores the funny – and sometimes painful – ties that bind us.
Proceeds from book sales will help women who have suffered miscarriage.
For more information, phone Peta-Jo on 0400 255 116.
Feral Bells can be distributed to bookstores around Australia. Be sure to ask your local book store to order it in. Please contact Bermingham Books if you’d like to stock copies.
If you’d like to review the book, arrange reader giveaways or have Peta-Jo do an in-store appearance, please email email@example.com
