Book Expo Australia!

It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve updated my blog. It’s true, I’ve been a bad boy and neglecting this space while I went and built up Queermance, and that’s still going. But right now I’m on my way back to Sydney, where you might recognise this wonderful window on Oxford Street. I probably …

Queermance 2014

So I’ve been neglecting my little website since November (sorry everyone), but I’ve been doing it for a very good reason – I hope. I’ve taken on the task of Festival Director for Queermance 2014, which is the first of hopefully an ongoing series of events celebrating Queer fiction and Queer Romance. We’re up and …

Still from Confessions of a Drunkard

So it’s the middle of NaNoWriMo, and Matthew has more or less left us to our own devices.

In some places, it’s already started, but here, it’s less than 1 hour away, and I’m wondering if I’m going to be staying up for a midnight start. For anyone in the writing community who hasn’t stumbled across …

Visiting Sydney

It’s been a while since I went anywhere–near on a year actually–and I decided it was high time I had a holiday. And if I could work some actual work in with it to justify the trip to myself and the tax office, so much the better. As it turns out, my ebook cover artist, …

So, we’ve finally managed to pry Matthew’s phone away from him long enough for us to get some of the nifty videos he’s been promising us, and here’s the first one: Adam Bandt, Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens speaking at the Equal Love rally last month. We could talk more about it, bur frankly, …
