If you're wondering if I'm out gardening or baking or knitting. The answer to all is "no". This is what I'm doing and I think I'll be doing it until I pack it all up to go to a meeting this afternoon. Signing books is not hard work, but it's repetitive.
Don't get me wrong, I am really grateful to have the opportunity to sign books, but at the moment there are a lot of books to be signed, packed and posted. If you have ordered and paid for a book, I'll probably be in touch sometime today. We hope to do the mail out tomorrow.
We'll be hitting the road on Saturday morning and driving to Byron Bay to have breakfast with Megan who will do an interview for her local newspaper, The Northern Star. From there we'll head to Tricia's in the Blue Mountains where we'll rest for a couple of days after a very hectic week. I don't have the itinerary yet but this is where we'll probably be: Sydney, Melbourne, Ballarat, Castlemaine, Bendigo, Albury-Wodonga, Canberra, Wollongong, Springwood, Blackheath and Bathurst. The Queensland launch will be at Rosetta's in Maleny when we come home again - their link is on my side bar. I'll have more details for you when I have them here.
Hanno and I hope you come to see us if you're close by. We are driving and not flying, as is the custom, so we can meet you, not just because of the book but because we feel connected to so many of you. Let me know if you can meet with us. And if you're in between those towns on the main route and there are a couple of you, maybe we could stop to meet you in the library or the local park.
Luckily we have friends who are housesitting, so I have a bit of organising to do yet so they'll be comfortable while we're away. Think of us on Saturday morning as we choof off down south. It's going to be a memorable few weeks.
