He's the fella who inspired the character Dave Sutherland, so there will be opportunity to grill Dave over his background and get his thoughts about his Intrepid namesake too...

DEFENDER MUSIC VIDEO

Flashback Friday

In 2011, legendary Aussie rock band Bullethead released the extended version of their popular song 'Promise Made' as a tribute to the black-ops Interpol Intrepid agents, otherwise known as Defenders, or defenders of the faith.

This high-octane video film clip interprets some of the book's meatier scenes in Defender and now has more than 100,000 enthusiastic views on Chris's YouTube Channel!

WONDER WOMAN

There are occasions in our lives when we have the good fortune of meeting people who are genuinely making a difference in the world, every day, without attention, accolade or reward. Sadly, those occasions are all too rare but when they do happen it is quite simply a privilege. When I deployed to East Timor in late 1999 on a humanitarian mission for CARE Australia, I met an incredibly humble, quietly spoken, hard-working, ridiculously smart Canadian nutrition specialist who had devoted her life to changing the lives of others. So, when I learned that this issue of GLOSS was to be all about ‘Game changers’, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to introduce you to a great friend of mine and real-time game changer, and there’s no better way for you to get to know her better than in her own words. 

So, ladies and gentlemen, please meet Allison Tuffs.

THE BEST OF INTREPID 2013

MOST POPULAR BLOG POSTS

With secret movie business underway, signed to Peony Literary Agency in Hong Kong, a trip to London & Los Angeles, and now to completing Avenger, my year’s been well and truly action-packed.

Around this time last year, I’d just re-released Defender and Hunter through Momentum.  

Soon, it’ll be the same for Avenger and I just hope that you'll enjoy this new story, featuring the first female Intrepid agent putting Alex Morgan through his paces as they track down the architects of human trafficking.

With the year that was, I'm looking forward to finishing Intrepid 3 and having a float around on the pool for a few hours, but this blog is a throwback to the posts you enjoyed the most.

CELEBRATING THE LAUNCH OF AMAZON.COM.AU

Amazon heads Down Under

Here at IntrepidHQ we see that Amazon have recently launched their amazon.com.au website - meaning you can now buy eBooks in AUD and there is a developing local presence for Aussie authors to party Amazon style.

CNet has reported that there are over two million ebooks with prices in Australian dollars — with over 700,000 titles under $4 and over 1.4 million under $10.

Amazon Kindle vice president Neil Lindsay says, "The new Kindle Store is customised for Australian customers, with local best sellers and curated lists relevant to Australians and many titles from local publishers and authors, such as Tim Winton, Karly Lane and Kate Morton."

So, we've come up with a new competition to celebrate Amazon Down Under. It combines some of our favourite things: talking about books and drinking beer.

Kapyong Day, & Remembering Our ANZACS

April 24 is Kapyong Day, the day in 1951 when my old battalion 3RAR fought back thousands of Chinese and Korean soldiers in one long and desperate night. I feel incredibly proud even to this day for having been at one time a custodian of the great legacy forged by these men. There's a great description of what happened in the Battle of Kapyong in The Age from 2011 at this link if you'd like to learn more.

While 24 April is Kapyong Day, a very special day for my former battalion, this post is equally to mark ANZAC Day on April 25 and pay my respects to all the diggers and officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
