Wind from Danyari

I've just made Wind from Danyari, into a Kindle download. It is the first book in my saga about the Hennessy family and their sheep station, Walara.
Walara is set in the Carnarvon district of Western Australia. It begins with the wreck of the Dutch East Indiaman, the Zuytdorp, which was wrecked on the coast of WA and continues to the beginning of WWII.
When Joe Hennessy saw Alicia Pennington, the beautiful spoilt daughter of one of Perth's leading businessmen, he fell in love with her. But would she make a suitable wife to take to Walara, his sheep station in the north west of Western Australia.
Wind from Danyari is also available in a print version from various outlets online.


  1. Congratulations, Laurel. I hope this first novel in your saga does very well as an ebook and in print. Having read and enjoyed chapters while you were writing some of the future books I'll be interested to see how it all began, in Wind from Danyari. I know the family and their experiences are fictional but it sure does seem real to me. There is gap regarding the younger generation for Sam's story to be told. Have you started that book yet?
    BTW, 'editing' at moment is hindering my reading, but I have started your Crossroads at Isca and I'm enjoying being drawn into the Roman Britain experience.

  2. Congratulations Laurel on getting Winds of Danyari out as an ebook. I still have my paperback copy. Was it difficult to do? How did you do it? Did you do it through YWO? I ask as I would like to convert Ferryman into an ebook. Do I have to go through YWO? Best of luck with the rest of that series, Laurel. Looking forward to seeing it out there.

  3. I just put it up on Kindle myself. It was very easy. And you can also look to see if you have any sales. Substitute Bride has sold very well. I think I'll have to write another Regency.

  4. Congratulations Laurel, Way to go.. with Kindle. Now I have an even longer list of ebooks I want to buy and read.

  5. It looks very handsome, and I am sure readers will love the way you make Western Australia almost a character in the series. Well done, Laurel - may you sell a zillion ebooks. I have a new Kindle, so I shall certainly have a look.
