Congratulation Phil. A bit of concern with the Amazon Australia GST issue. PNG has similar problems?

Your new novel interests me. My next project will be something similar and based in the colonial times involving an Administration officer and indigenous highlanders. A novel this time.

The next one is about an Aboriginal girl in the 1860s who goes on a revenge spree after her tribe is massacred - called 'Black Huntress'. Based on fact.

Congratulations Phil. You could have asked me to do a beautiful book cover for free. Maybe on your next book?

Philip Fitzpatrick

For Australian readers the hardcover version of the book will take a little while to get to the Amazon Australia website.

Amazon USA etc. sells the book but has fallen foul of the new GST arrangements brought in by the Australian government. Australian writers campaigned against these arrangements without success.

My second book, after Bamahuta: Leaving Papua, was an Australian novel called 'The Dingo Trapper' and featured Aboriginal characters. My next book will also feature the conflict between Aborigines and Europeans in early Australia.

For reasons I can't explain my books sell mostly in the USA, Europe and UK.
