Welcome to my tour stop for Striking Out by Scarlet Bennett! The tour runs August 17 – September 11 with reviews, interviews, guest posts, excerpts and giveaways.
Striking Out is an adult Australian contemporary. The dialogue and and characterizations are distinctly Australian. Check out the tour page for more information.
Scarlet Bennett spent her formative years in regional Western Australia, and it shows. Years of city living have softened her broad accent, but the slang she’s stuck with. After earning a Masters degree in Psychology, the colourful characters of her childhood – and that irrepressible Aussie spirit – found their way onto the page. She is a graduate of Allaboutwriting’s mentoring program, and lives in Canberra with her husband, kids, and far more animals than can reasonably fit on a suburban plot.
Review of Striking Out
Review (3.5 Stars): I liked Shazza’s character because she was a strong woman that wasn’t afraid of anyone and was a bad-ass female. I loved her experiences with musicians at the different shows as she was finding her way through the music world. She had been through so much and you could definitely see that through this story.
Striking Out was an entertaining and fun story and I enjoyed the time that I spent with Shazza. Loved the Australian backdrop and I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.
