The Basics of Life - Book Launch!

Not only did I have my first ever short story published, but I scored the national book launch too!!

I managed not to cry, even though I was talking about why I wrote the story - my dad being diagnosed with terminal cancer. I actually had more sales of the book from other people than the number of copies I bought myself



I remember to thanks the awesome Ian and Karen at Collins Booksellers in Mackay for hosting the event and stocking the book (they rock!).

And I remember the plug:
You can order THE BASICS OF LIFE feature me! and Sophie Masson plus other great authors through Collins Booksellers Mackay (they'll post anywhere - even overseas!). (07) 49532777 or email books@collinsbooksmackay.com.au to order now. It will be in other stores (including online stores) soon. I'll update as I have the details. At $17.99 it's great value.

And finally - if you are an emerging Australian author check out auslit.net for anthology and competition opportunities as well as author interviews.

  3. BlueHost is ultimately one of the best hosting provider with plans for any hosting requirements.
