Wow, what an exciting week it’s been. I’ve had some great news on the publishing front, but those details will have to wait for a little longer 🙂 (Love teasing!!)
I’ve seen the drafts of the new covers for Burning Lies and Half Moon Bay. Obviously Penguin has had a visit from the cover fairies as the covers are beautiful! Can’t wait to share them. (Soon!)
But the really big news of the week is that GW, Zeus and I have embarked on the next stage of our lives. My friend Liz calls it a ‘dot point of life’ when things dramatically change. We’re now the very proud owners of ‘Roo-Bin-Esque’ – a sexy, chubby French Lagoon 400 – a 40 ft catamaran – that’s going to be our new home. It’s going to take another month to organise our life so we can sail her north to Cairns, but once we do that we’ll be packing up our house and turning into live-aboard yachties. (So if you know anyone wanting to rent a beautiful 3 bedroom house that’s conducive to writing send them our way!)
It’s a seachange on a grand scale. I’ll still be flying my beautiful Dash 8 aircraft for Qantaslink and hopefully having more time to write. GW will turn hunter gatherer (apparently) and rival Bear Grylls with his prowess. In his spare time he’ll be tinkering with a yacht – which is apparently part of the fun of sailing. Zeus is yet to decide whether this is his dream or not, but hopefully having his humans in close quarters he’ll be happy as a pig in mud, or a staffy in water.
All this means that my blog’s going to have some new stories, different views, and some interesting locations. I hope you enjoy our new journey as much as we plan on doing!
