Note: Only FREE for those in Australia!


Mad Men, Bad Girls by Maggie Groff

Mad Men, Bad Girls and the Guerilla Knitters Institute‘ by Maggie Groff (Macmillan Australia) is available for FREE download on Kindle if you are registered in Australia. *The US Kindle edition is $13.49!

Book Description

When a secretive American cult moves to the Gold Coast, freelance journalist Scout Davis’s investigative antennae start quivering. She sets out to expose the cult’s lunatic beliefs and bizarre practices, but when she learns the identity of a recent recruit, her quest becomes personal. And dangerous.

The cult isn’t the only case on Scout’s agenda. Someone is cutting up girls’ underwear at an exclusive school and Scout agrees to look into it. And the sinister secret behind the vandalism is not nice. Not at all.

But Scout has her secrets too. In the dead of night she sneaks out with an underground group of yarn bombers to decorate the locality with artworks. The next mission ticks all the right boxes – it’s risky, difficult and extremely silly. However, not everyone is amused, and Scout has a sneaking suspicion that the local police sergeant, Rafe Kelly, is hot on her tail.

Mad Men, Bad Girls and the Guerilla Knitters Institute is frequently hilarious, always surprising, and delivered with a strong cast of charmingly eccentric characters.

October 21, 2010 Leave a comment

Hey, time for stop #11 on the international leg of the GlamNation Tour and it’s at the Enmore Theater (Sydney, Australia)! Excited Adam Lambert had this to tweet: “Sydney Show tonight is gonna be wild!” And oh yes it was, with an extra long snog with his bass player in Fever, licking keyboardist Cam, and tongue diving with the audience (here’s a tweet from the fan)! Pity that Matthew Mitcham was already taken or we could have had a liplock with them too! Here’s some PopRepublic coverage of the kiss-miss – great title! Adam Lambert tries to score Gold In Sydney.. lol AND on SameSame: Sydney fans seek Glambert kisses (YouTube vid of Adam at the airport – he was not pleased to wake up & see that fans had been taking his pics/vid while asleep – understandable really). Check out the Music Network review (although it reads more like a recap) and Sydney Star Observer. * Report on Adam’s post-concert activities via News.Com.

(Updated) Adam Lambert Performs ‘If I Had You’ Live at X-Factor (Australia)!

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment

Adam Lambert is scheduled to hold a concert in Melbourne, Australia on the 19th of October, but he made a detour first to Sydney to film a special performance of ‘If I Had You‘ for X-Factor (Australia)! I’m trying to find a good uploaded video, but this video by oxjodixo (YouTube) is the only one so far. I’ll be sure to change it up if a better quality one turns up. (In the meantime, here’s video DL links for MPG or MP4)

Update: SirGaGable has a better quality video up, but it lacks the intro. (YouTube). At any rate, I can now hear Adam’s effortlessly glorious voice! He does sound amazing live… and better than the recording. In contrast, for example, I love Katy Perry’s ‘Fireworks’, but her live performance of it on the X-Factor UK made it seem like it was such a difficult to sing live and it can’t compare to the studio version)

Update #2 : Replaced with great quality unlisted video 🙂

Adam looked good! He truly looked liked a glittery fabulous alien from outer space – fab hair! 🙂

P.S. Adam’s ‘It Gets Better’ video is also up on YouTube now – spread the word!
