Hi Jarad,
Just purchased and read Blood Sunset and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have not been able to get a hold of your first book, Head Shot. Do you know of anywhere that has it in stock? I look foreward to the release of your latest work. Best regards, Mike.

Hi Jarad, I just joined last week so I'm new at this too. It's a great page. Lindy Cameron told me about it. I'm on holiday after this week so I will have time to puruse it better.

Hi Jarad

Good to see you here. I've suggested my writers' group (Lazy River Writers, based in Belgrave) invite you as our guest speaker later on this year. The Writers' Centre supports us financially each year with an all day workshop and I think it's time crime had a go.

Cheers

Jackie

Hiya Leigh
Nice to hear from ya! Yes indeed, both A&U babies now.... been a long time coming but worth it. Are you going to Byron Bay? If so, I'll catch you there! If not, you're on for St Kilda... it rocks, even in winter!
Take care and catch you in June.

Jarad :)

Hey Jarad, great to hear the new book is out. I'll have to get it when I'm back in Australia in June. We are publishing house buddies now! Am still desperately trying to finish number four, but every computer I touch goes into meltdown. I swear I am cursed. Lets have a drink in St Kilda when I'm back. Cheers, Leigh xxx And PS Jarad's workshop is great, I did it in Adelaide!

“…There are cops I know who call it the Blood Sunset: when the sun lowers itself into the bay and leaves the sky over St Kilda a dark crimson. It’s beautiful and threatening at the same time, but the tourists don’t see it that way. They only see the pretty colours and the calm water, the restaurants and the palm trees. What they don’t see are the stabbings and the fights, the brawls and the rapes. These are the things that happen after dark. The things only we see…”
