Launch event


It's been a busy few weeks - so much so that I forgot to mention the launch event we had for the PaperBooks edition of The Grease Monkey's Tale a fortnight ago.  The idea was to compensate for not being able to attend its UK release by having a celebration at Blarney Books & Art in Port Fairy and to get people to start recommending it.


We did it in style: wine, a couple of tables of nibbles, a wonderful introduction by Dmetri Kakmi (author Mother Land, international essayist, occasional contributor to The Age, senior editor of YA and children's fiction), lots of guests, a great venue... and a short reading.  And that Word-of-Mouth thing does indeed seem to be working.


A very big thanks to Dmetri for travelling from Melbourne for the weekend and for his very kind words, and to Jo and Dean for the venue and setting up such a wonderful evening, and to everyone who was able to turn up or pass on their best wishes.
