Successful Book Fair

Thank you to all the wonderful people who stopped by and chatted with me at the inaugural Mt Gambier Rotary Club Book Fair over the past two days. Thanks, also, to the Rotary Club who organised it all. It has been a wonderful weekend and I have enjoyed meeting everyone, and the conversations had.

The highlight of the weekend for me was certainly the joint presentation I did with Wendy Altschwager, another local author, on How to Write Fabulous Fiction. We were very thrilled with the feedback from those of you who listened, with some of you voting our talk the best of the day. We had an hour together in front of a copiously note-taking audience, as we shared from our own learning during two very different writing journeys, and with very different styles of fiction.

If you haven’t already met Wendy or heard of her and her books, she writes Australiana fiction, writing humorous tales that capture the essence of the unique lifestyle, language and culture of rural life. She grew up in the country and has lived firsthand many of the experiences that she writes about. You can connect with Wendy here.

I am almost at the end of the first print run of Mine to Avenge, and will soon be planning a second printing. If you want to be in the running to track down the elusive typo in my book, and win yourself a $50 Amazon gift voucher, time is running out to get yourself a first edition copy, because the error will be corrected for the reprint. If you fancy yourself as a proof reader and want to play ‘Hunt the Typo,’ you will need to get in fast to get one of the remaining first edition books. (See details below)

I thank those who bought my book, Mine to Avenge, and hope that after you read it, you think it worthy of your time.  Keep watching this space for some more photos of the Fair, which I hope to have available very soon.

The typo in Mine to Avenge is not a spelling or grammatical error, but is an error of relationship. To explain, Mine to Avenge is a generational novel with multiple characters. There is one part of the novel where I incorrectly state a relationship between two people, which has been stated as something else throughout the story, for example, where the two characters might correctly be brothers throughout the story, there is one place where I call them something else, for example, cousins, or brothers in law.
Please note: Australian readers only. The book is $25 and postage within Australia is $15.
