It's been a great three years, blogging here and getting to know a lot of great people, many of who I now consider friends (you know who you are). But I must admit my enthusiasm is now lagging, and more importantly I need to focus on writing my novel.
It's been a year since All Windows Open my novella and short story collection, was published, and what a year it's been. Although it isn't exactly flying off the shelves, I have had some great feedback and received support from many unexpected places. Thank you firstly to everyone who bought a copy. Really: Thank you!!! And to everyone who has mentioned my book on their Facebook page or blog, or written a review - you are ACE!!
Being short listed for the NSW Premier'sLiterary Award was HUGE, and getting a review in a national paper was FAB. But now I want to take the next step and write a full length work. I have been fortunate to work with a terrific mentor Maria Tumarkin who has been talking to me and skilfully guiding me toward what I really want to write about. Now that I am on my way, I want to give it my full attention. When I am done, or if anything very exciting happens: I will be back!
Meanwhile I will still be updating my Facebook page, so please find me there and keep in touch!
If you would like a copy of my book, it really is available everywhere: Amazon, Booktopia, InfiBeam, Book Depository etc. The eBook is ridiculously cheap: about $2 or $3.
Stay safe, happy and healthy everyone!
