Literati on the Gold Coast Event

I’m delighted that I’ll be taking part in the Literati events on Queensland’s Gold Coast at the end of this month, organised by the Gold Coast Libraries.

The Literary Feast is on Friday, 29 May, at 7pm at the Gold Coast Arts Centre; around 30 authors will be there, moving between tables to talk about books, writing and reading with the other guests. Tickets for the dinner are $75.

The following day, Saturday 30 May, there are a series of author talks at the various Gold Coast libraries. I’ll be on a panel at Broadbeach Library, at 10am, with authors Toni Jordan and Karen Foxlee. Our topic is writing a follow-up to a best-selling debut novel. (Technically mine isn’t a best-selling novel – not yet, anyway! But it’s doing quite nicely.)

The full program of events – and there are some great authors participating – is available as a PDF file. The author talks are free, but bookings are essential.

And, in a nice gesture, I received a parcel yesterday: Text Publishing, who publish Toni Jordan, had sent me a copy of Toni’s novel Addition via my publisher. It looks like a great read – as soon as my copy-edits are finished, I’ll delve into it!
