There’s a new page on this website. It’s been a busy few days for me (no, Dragon Age 2 is still yet to arrive), but I’ve confirmed a book launch for The Secret of Talmor Manor, entered the People’s Choice Night of the Williamstown Literary Festival, and been invited to be a panelist at the Emerging Writers’ Festival for their Romance Genre panel.
I did a few other things too, but those are the most interesting ones. And as a result, I’ve added an events page to this site so they don’t get lost amongst the flurry of posting on this blog. Or the hopeful flurry of posting on this blog.
So without further ado, this is what I’m up to!

For a bit of fun I’ve entered the Williamstown Literary Festival‘s People’s Choice and Poetry Night, which is an open mic style event for ten short works of poetry and prose, with the audience deciding the winner in each category, with prize money to the tune of $50-$100 each. If you’d like to come along and help me win, your support would be very much appreciated.

Please come down and join me to celebrate the publication of my book, have a drink, possibly listen to a reading, and I’ll be on hand for signings.
I’m also talking to some artist friends about possibly having some artwork auctions or similar for charity (most likely the equal love campaign). I’ll provide updates as details get finalised. There will be a bar open for the launch as well.
