New Releases and Events

Upcoming Releases

While no exact dates have been set for new book releases, Lara is currently working on several new projects. 

These include:​

  • A stand-alone mystery suspense novel for adult readers, planned for release in late 2023 or early 2024. This book is set in colonial Australia, paying specific attention to the importance of Indigenous Australians, and is heavily influenced by the work of best-selling author Dianne Setterfield. 

  • A four-book high fantasy series. The draft of this series is currently close to completion, but is not yet scheduled for release. 

Please return to this website for updates on new releases.


Previous Events

The Red Fox series was included in a global blog hop in 2019, organised by Review Wire Media. Blog Hops promote reader-blogger-author connectivity by promoting different books on a number of different blogs and offering giveaways to participating readers. 

Lu Ann Worley, creator of the Rockin' Book Reviews blog, was kind enough to select Red Fox as one of the promoted novels on her blog during the Hello Spring Giveaway Hop.

​Lara Fanning participated as an independent author in the Spring 2020 Young Adult Scavenger Hunt.

The Young Adult Scavenger Hunt (YASH) is a biannual reading event that promotes author collaboration and reader interaction. YASH brings together 80 independent and traditionally published authors and sorts them into groups: red, blue, purple, gold, and green. Each of these authors offer prizes, giveaways, and promotional material to participating readers all over the world.


When the hunt begins, all 80 authors publish YASH-themed posts on their websites or author Facebook pages, which encourages readers to compete in games and contests. Readers may interact with all authors' posts, regardless of that author's group. Each author will provide a coloured number at the end of their YASH-themed post. 


Readers record the number at the end of each post (and its colour). When numbers of the same colour are added together (representing the groups of red, blue, purple, gold, and green), the final numbers can be sent to the YASH organiser, and readers will be eligible to win a grand prize.  

For more information, please see the YASH website:


Guest Appearances

Lara Fanning has appeared in several guest interviews with book bloggers, and has featured in guest articles hosted by writing-related groups. She is extremely appreciative to bloggers for taking the time to read and review her books, for bloggers often receive a huge number of book review requests and rarely have time to respond to all of these. She is also so grateful to the Queensland Writers Centre for choosing to use her dystopian-themed article in one of their magazines.
