Everyone came to the Sydney Sea Hearts launch!
Melina Marchetta did the honours, flattering me mightily and then drawing me out on all matters selkie-related, with a bit of process-porn thrown in. Then we broke a bottle of champagne against the bow of the good ship Sea Hearts and drank to her long and glorious voyaging.
It was a grand night. Big thanks to the Alien Onions for the flowers, and to Allen & Unwin, and Allyx and her Kino crew, for all the organisation, including the equipment for the continuous selkie-scrapbook slideshow.
