Phew, what a busy last few weeks! Apologies for the lack of blogging, but life has been full. I didn’t realise how long a break I’d had until emails starting arriving asking if I was okay 🙂 Very happy to report I’m fine, my computer is fine, but my boss expects me to keep working even when I’m in the middle of copy edits… (Inconsiderate or what? 😉 )
The Yungaburra Book Fair was a lot of fun. My panel partners, Barb Hannay and Elizabeth Martin, were wonderful, the crowd filled the tent, and the carrot cake in the little coffee shop on the corner was divine! It was great to catch up with the NQ RWA girls. (And a very big congrats to Alice who will be working with a major Australian publishing house on her latest project!)
A huge ‘thank you and well done’ has to go to Sarah Braund from the Yungaburra Book Village for putting the day together. It was wonderful to see so many people browsing through books. We’ll be back next year!!
If you’re in Cairns and looking for a literary moment tomorrow (9th October), Elizabeth is launching her debut novel, The Coffeeholic and the Cafe, at the Coffee Bean on the Pier at 4 pm. For more details check out her website at http://www.thecoffeeholicandthecafe.webs.com It’s a lovely romantic comedy/chicklit set in North Queensland and perfect to read lingering over a great NQ Gold coffee!
Editing is progressing and I am, as always, so very grateful to Ali and Bernadette for their insights and diplomacy. I thought I’d banished all the words I tend to over use… It seems I’ve simply found new ones to torture…
I should have a couple of new covers to show you very soon and some exciting news about Border Watch! And now, it’s back to editing and I promise not to leave it so long between blogs 😀
