… too busy to blog. Sorry.
A crazy month or so. It started with the Melbourne Writers’ Festival in late August which was great but pretty intense. Or maybe it started the week before that – Book Week! That was when I went back to my childhood public library in Nunawading, and talked to a lovely group of women of all ages about reading and writing. And then after the Festival, I spent a couple of exhilarating days as Writer in Residence at Kilvington Grammar School.
Since then I’ve been making final revisions to the manuscript of Tragédie, the novel I’ve been working on as part of my PhD. It’s to be published by Fourth Estate in the middle of next year under the new title Goddess. It’s in the kind hands of my editors now.
I’ve also been teaching Writing Fiction this semester at La Trobe University which is stacks of fun – but a lot of work.
And as you may have noticed, The Sultan’s Eyes has come out recently too.
So I can’t report on all the fabulous books I’ve read lately because I haven’t had a moment spare for reading.
But it’s a great deal better than being bored.
