Receiving emails from readers who’ve enjoyed Wings of Fear (Border Watch) has been one of the unexpected joys of my publishing journey. Last night I found another one – library visits!
Graham and I flew down to Sydney then drove out to Camden for a library talk. It was a lovely intimate gathering with people who’d read and enjoyed my first book and wanted to chat about Shattered Sky. To hear them talking about my characters as if they were real was very special. Thanks to Virginia for organising the event, to Heather for helping out, to Michelle from Angus and Robertson for her support, and a huge thanks to those who came along (especially to several who drove so far!)
It was wonderful to see such a vibrant library supporting not only the community and but also writers. Their visiting writers programme is fantastic. In March new writer, Jaye Ford, is dropping by to talk about her new release Beyond Fear.
On Virginia’s recommendation we finished the night at Enzo’s Italian Restaurant. It was superb. The food was divine, the service attentive without being intrusive and D’Thierry the maitre’d was wonderful. The sambucca with gold leaf he generously shouted us topped the evening off perfectly.
All I have to do is angle to get an invite back next year 🙂

So pleased I could provide a friendly face!
Thanks, Amanda. I really appreciate the effort you went to with driving such a long way after a very busy week. It was lovely to see you, and you asked such good questions 🙂
You were fabulous! And it was so wonderful to do something for you, for a change! Glad Tamworth went so well!!
Yeah, that’s always the downside of gift vouchers… ‘Spend them fast’ is always my motto!
Maggie is snarfing loudly, she now has a useless book voucher, her Xmas present from her boss
It was fun Sandy! Got to do the Tamworth post today but am a little tired….
Cathy, I think the ripples will keep spreading for some time. Of course many airlines have emerged leaner and meaner from Ch 11 so who know!!
Helene, what is your take on the Borders fiasco?
What a wonder moral booster! And you’re in Tamworth today for more. Aahh, colour me green with envy. 🙂
