Lauren Dawes Street Team


I'm looking for new members for my street team!

I've tried having a street team before, which didn't go too well so I'm trying again. 

If you'd like to join, and get exclusive sneak peaks of my current WIPs as well as competitions and giveaways, all you have to do is click here

What do I have to do in the street team?

It's simple, really. All you have to do is be a fan of my books and writing. When I have a new book coming out, tell everyone about it on as many social media platforms as you like. Retweet, like and share images I share on Twitter, Facebook and here on my blog and Google+. If you're creative, make teaser posters or book trailers for my books and share them around.

I'd also love to hear what you have to say. Share your ideas with me, whether it's about a potential plot line, or an idea for a competition. 

And of course, all team members will receive ARCs of my current and future books for review.

Unfortunately members who are inactive, or abuse their privileges  will be removed promptly from the group.

I hope too see you all there!

Book Spotlight: "Let down your Hair" by Fiona Price

At 22, Sage Rampion has barely spoken to a man, but she’s read a lot about them. She was raised and home-schooled by an expert on the subject: her grandmother, a Professor of Womyn’s Studies (spelt with a Y).

When Sage meets the male nude model she saw from her grandma’s office window, her sheltered world begins to unravel. She starts asking questions about how she was brought up, and the teenage mother who abandoned her. It looks like the battle of the sexes is way more complex (and far more fun) than she’s been told …

About Fiona...

Fiona Price has a lifelong passion for words. She has studied multiple languages, talks too much, and spent her teens exchanging long letters with penfriends all over the world. After declaring she was going to be a writer, aged six, she began work on her first masterpieces: a novel about a wild pony and an incisive satirical song called ‘Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep’. Since then, she has attempted just about every form of writing, from bush verse and screenplays to elegies and academic articles.

When not writing, Fiona uses her storytelling skills as a cross-cultural trainer and public speaker. She runs workshops on cultural diversity issues, is a member of Toastmasters, and was MC at the 2014 Chinese New Year Dinner for the Museum of Chinese-Australian History. Her non-fiction book Success with Asian Names was published in 2007, and she was a co-author for the HarperCollins International Student Survival Guide in 2014.

Fiona is plotting further novels based on fairy tales, and is currently working on a fantasy trilogy for young adults. She has an Australian father and a Chinese mother, and she lives in Melbourne by the sea.
