Poster says it all. Nervous. Excited. Yet its hard to correlate writing with public speaking. Polar opposites really. So I better get on and write a speech.
What to talk about? Bottomless River. The writing and background of it. The process of writing in general. What else?
I believe the Library are filming it so unless it's terrible, I'll post a link to it when it's up.
There was a small article in the local paper too. Here's the online version.
Thanks to Arielle Brogan who took the photo of me.
The book is getting some fantastic reviews. I couldn't ask for better. I'll post some snippets soon.
Until next time,

Though it was State of Origin night and the fact that Sydneysiders are averse to the rain and cold, thirty people turned out for a great night at the funky Green Lounge Bar.
Thank you to those who supported the night and for those who have purchased the book elsewhere in Australia and overseas, particularly the United States.
You can purchase the book directly from me or from the publisher.
Or if you live in Sydney, from Gleebooks or Better Read than Dead, both in the Inner West.
