Dear friends – I hope to see you next Tuesday 25th at the SA Writers’ Centre at 6 for the Launch of FABLES QUEER & FAMILIAR!
To whet your appetite (or if you aren’t in Adelaide) here’s an interview with the lovely Emily Sutherland of 5MBS:

The First Week has been shortlisted for the 2014 Barbara Jefferis Award for ‘the best novel written by an Australian author that depicts women and girls in a positive way or otherwise empowers the status of women and girls in society’. see Australian Society of Authors
The grannies are going into hibernation for the winter – plenty of pumpkin soup, fireside chats and yoga, but no public appearances until the launch of Adelaide Days – collected and illustrated by the wonderful Chia Moan – to be unleashed on the world in November.
Stay tuned and I’ll let you know about that.
All the best and keep warm
‘The First Week’ is shortlisted for the new writing category of the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards.
