July 2014 – Quick meeting roundup

Guests:

We welcomed Kimberley Clark, an author we first meet at the Indie Authors Down Under event in March 2014. Kimberley joined us to chat about the upcoming events for Supanova in Brisbane and Adelaide later this year. Kimberley attended Supanova on the Gold Coast in April and found it well worth while.  Kimberley’s book called, “The Species Within” is Book #1 of the Battles in the Dark series. The next book in the series, The Ultimate Killer will be out in time for those events.
