Things are gathering speed around me as the launch date of Cassie (way too long to type out every time, and ‘the book’ sounds so impersonal) comes closer.
The Thursday before release I do a pre-recorded interview for Sydney ABC Nightlife, so it’s time to do a bit of prep – so reading the book will be a start!
Then comes the official launch at Candelo Books in Bega. This is a fantastic bookshop. They’ve been in the business for several years now and know their business thoroughly; there are regular events there, and I’m pleased to have Cassie’s launch there. Here is your invitation – just change the venue to any of the below.
I’m doing an ‘in conversation’ at Booktique Merimbula, with Gordon Beattie in control of the conversation, on Thursday 22nd February @ 5.30, for anyone in the area then – or if you’re in Wangaratta on March 7th, I’ll be at Booktique, 51 Reid Street, for a really long discussion with Michelle, the owner, who likes to push conversational boundaries.
AND – one that’s always a good time all around – there will be a gig or two at Clunes Book Town on the first weekend in May. If you’ve not been there yet, make a point of going, not because I’ll be there although it’d be lovely to meet FB friends, but because it’s a unique festival in Australia, and a member of the hard-to-get-into International Organisation of Book Towns.
I’m hoping to be in Springwood soonish, so watch this space, mountain peeps.
