The Brides of Rollrock Island (UK) cover
Apologies for a slack month's no-blogging. Was I really that busy? Well, there were the two book talks, both of which went off very well. There was the proofreading of Sea Hearts/Brides of Rollrock for both the Australian and the UK editions, which fortunately could be done together with a bit of funnelling of extra corrections either way. I had a noice toime meeting sales people from bookshops with Allen & Unwin a week or so ago, and recording a book trailer. And I worked on the short stories that will come out in February (I hope—I'm still finishing off the last one) from Twelfth Planet Press.
So, yes, there was quite a bit on, when you add day job and beach weekends to that. November looks quieter, except that I'm trying to have a good go at the next novel, the NSW colonial fantasy. So far my hero is dallying in Ireland, waiting for a chance to murder someone so that he can be transported. Move along, man!
