Release day: Bindarra Creek Makeover
Today is the official release of Bindarra Creek Makeover by SE Gilchrist (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
With the help of an isolated country town and the government grant meant to rebuild it, she’ll secure new identities for her sickly daughter and herself. Desperate to escape the nightmare stalking them, it never enters her head she’ll fall in love – not only with a cop but an entire community that makes her feel like one of their own.
With his career on shaky ground after his ex-partner is charged with fraud, Constable Dylan Myers (aka Dodge) returns to his hometown of Bindarra Creek. What he finds is a community struggling to survive. When an attractive young woman presents a proposal to the town council, his internal cop radar is activated. Something isn’t adding up about Tessa Gibson. No matter how much she makes his pulse race, Dodge doesn’t need or want any complications – especially in his love-life, which is just fine as it is.
But neither Tessa nor Dodge are a match for his grandmother and her CWA cronies. They’ve got their own ideas on how to draw new life to Bindarra Creek … and not even the monster from Tessa’s past will stop them.
SE Gilchrist dropped by today to tell us a little about this book and series:
In early 2015, I approached several writers and writer friends and sounded them out on the idea of an anthology centred around a fictional country town. The core concept of the town is of a very small rural community struggling to remain alive in a difficult economic climate and keen to bring people, and life, back to Bindarra Creek. And so, the Bindarra Creek Romance series was born. We currently have thirteen authors and the idea is to have one story published each month over a period of thirteen months, beginning July 2015. I’ve been awed, amazed and down-right thankful for the talent and sharing of resources, ideas and individuals’ skills in the development of our fictional town, Bindarra Creek. It’s been a fun and challenging journey and our stories will cover the spectrum of drama, intrigue, suspense, humour, real-life struggles, adventure and, of course, romance. There is a cast of colourful characters who walk on and off within our books, including a cockatoo and a donkey. And a rural town wouldn’t be authentic without the determined members of the Country Women’s Association.
