Newsletter Blast Off

I’ve finally sent my first newsletter! Plans to send it in January were derailed by RL and computer woes, but now I’m in business I’m aiming for quarterly with extras inbetween if I have something exciting to share.

This newsletter has a free short story called No Place Like Home which was my entry for the QSF Flash Fiction contest a couple of years ago. It’s an exclusive to this newsletter as I won’t be sharing it on Drops of Ink until after my next newsletter in June.

If you have any ideas of what you’d like to see in future newsletter I’d love to hear from you.

And also… I’m still trying to find a title for a series I want to write about a group of guys with psi powers set in New Zealand. So if you could help me out with that I’d really appreciate it. Everyone I’ve come up with either doesn’t really work or is already in use. It’s current working title is Outliers

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
