The nights have been cold and this winter has not been mild.
Nope. Melbourne continues to deliver its iciest blast.
But my readers have showered me with warmth and love.
In June, it was my privilege to speak with the wonderful women of NewHope Baptist Church, in Blackburn. These girls sure know how to manage an event. Every corner of the room was festooned with details inspired by Carry Me Home.
A million thanks, to my beautiful team…Fiona, Surette, Laura, and Robyn.
From shells to tea cups, lanterns and candles, to olde worlde books and nostalgic touches like handmade bunting… the entire room glowed with such attention to detail, I thought I may have walked into my own story-world.
And notice the carefully chosen tablecloth, matched to Finella’s skirt! Brilliant!
Many thanks to the beautiful souls who attended this Meet The Author event, and for your wonderful support! What a treat to discover such warm hearted readers.
Meeting you girls was the highlight of my June!
AND… just last week, it was a delight to chat with the good people of Phillip Island in the local library. We talked all things Carry Me Home, Displacement Fiction, and my road to publication. Many thanks to Helen and Jenny for their hospitality.
An Aussie author could easily believe the months of June and July are cold and unwelcoming. Not true. For this debut author, they’ve been a warm embrace.
Thank you, dear readers! Once again, you’ve blessed me beyond measure.
I hope you’re keeping toasty or ice cool… wherever you may be.
