I stepped into the Dymocks George Street store in Sydney today and was thrilled to see 'Someone's Listening' was pride of place on their shelf . The journey to this point has been a time coming and I must give a ‘big shout out’ to Dymocks for stocking my book. As an author it is heart warming to have such a prestigious bookstore ‘give it the thumbs up’ …A very proud moment and cause for a little dance..
It was a great night at the Kirribilli Neighbourhood Centre for the launch of my book. Fabulous food and fabulous company to the sound of champagne corks popping. Thanks to all those who came to celebrate my writer's journey.
The official launch of, Someone's Listening, has not been decided but within the next fortnight is a good guess. Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to an interview with, Diana Koprinkova at SBS Radio. The interview will go to air on the 29th June at 7-8pm. It is my first book interview and I feel my writer's journey is now entering a new stage. Though in some way I also feel a little loss that the pages have run out and the fun side of conjuring up the next chapter is no longer… well not for this book anyway. Though I must say it did spur me on to tickle the keyboard once again and start another manuscript. I’m not sure where it will take me. Then again I can say that about, Someone’s Listening, for it too was a revelation. In writing it, I journeyed to the other side of the world, to a country I knew little about, Bulgaria, and met the most interesting people that in a normal day I would surely have missed.
Often it’s muted that one should write about what one knows but I find it’s more fun to begin writing about something you may not know. In doing this, the world opens up an exciting challenge to explore new territories and untrodden paths.
