Today and next week

Hello everyone! We're still in the Blue Mountains and yesterday Hanno, Tricia and I drove out to the little heritage town of Millthorpe. It is a beautiful town, untouched by modern development with many old homes and shops. We had lunch there and came back via Bathurst. A lovely drive.

Today I'll be on 2GB Sydney radio with Chris Smith, talking about the book. After that, we'll drive over to Glebe to sign books at Gleebooks on Glebe Point Road. We'll be there from 3pm so if you're in the neighbourhood stop by and say hello. We'd love to meet you.

Kerry and Sunny are at our place at the moment. Sunny's mum and sister and her children are visiting from Korea so they're there too.  Yesterday they went to the mall at Maroochydore and saw my book on sale at Collins book shop. Kerry took a photo of it! I loved that he did that. My whole family is proud of this book and while I have been thinking of it as my book, I now know it's our family book.

I've had a lot of people ask where we'll be so here is the itinerary, including the radio, TV, magazines and newspapers:

  1. Putting 2 March on the calendar. So glad you are able to make a stop in Wollongong :) Off to transplant baby banana plants now (always seems a crime to just compost the spare suckers).

  3. Gosh. I'm exhausted just reading your itinerary Rhonda and Hanno! LOL
    I'm a first time poster but long time lurker. I do love this blog.
    My copy of the book arrived in the mail today and I couldn't be more pleased with it. It's wonderfully informative, an easy to read format and the photos are simply beautiful. Well done!

  9. Well done! Looks like you are absolutely everywhere right now :) I was hoping to drive down to Canberra and catch you, but unfortunately we will be away camping (fingers crossed with the weather) on that date. Wishing you all the best of your tour and looking forward to seeing you on Today Tonight.

  13. I just bought your book in Kyneton, Vic today. I spotted it in a bookshop and raced in. The owner said that it had only just come in, so I suggested she ordered some more! I'm really looking forward to spending time reading it this weekend. Congratulations!

  20. Oh my goodness! What an itinerary. As you said recently, a few years ago - who would have thought?!

    Great to see your book is also being reviewed in young women's magazines like Cosmo and Madison.

    Sending you lots of strength, love Candice

  22. Hi Rhonda, It was lovely to meet you and Hanno yesterday (although it was a bit hectic for me, with that open door!)

    Thank you for making yourself so available on your tour! Take care and make the most of it as you travel home.
