Not long until Brimstone, the first book in my new Firewatcher Chronicles series, is in the bookshops.
1 September 2018, to be precise.
So you can get your hands on it soon.
In the meantime, here are a few events I have on my dance card.
The new And Then… adventure story anthologies will be launched (there are two hugevolumes) on 5 August at the Rising Sun Hotel in South Melbourne. A whole lot of the authors will be there, including Kerry Greenwood, Sulari Gentill, Alison Goodman and me.
(This is the anthology – Volume 2 – which includes my first ever ‘Boots and the Bushranger’ story).
Also in August is Bendigo Writers Festival, a terrific festival – always a great line-up, thoughtful programming, and a wonderful host city. It’s schools program, Text Marks the Spot, is equally fab. I’ll be there (10-12 August), talking about podcasting, interviewing some lovely authors, and launching Rachel Nightingale’s new novel, Columbine’s Tale.
On 28 August, I’ll be speaking alongside Linda Weste and Ali Alizadeh on History and Fiction, as part of the History Council of Victoria’s ‘Making Public Histories’ seminar series.
Phew. That’ll keep me out of mischief for a couple of weeks, anyway.
I’ll update you soon on events to celebrate the release of Brimstone.
PS Did I mention I’ve just been on holiday in Berlin and Prague? Oh my. So many story ideas. So much fascinating history.
