Are you curious as to where I write?
Here’s a look at my new office. I still have a bit of arranging to do but it’s almost there. The perfect space to fit a desk, two laptops, trays, folders, stationery, bookshelf, filing cabinets, printer and of course – plenty of books (and pens) (oh, and notepads)!
Another advantage is when I turn around I have a water view – the pool. It’s tranquil and pretty to inspire my next book setting. Stay tuned for that.
Today I had a phone interview in the office (my first). I know it’s Easter Monday but when a journalist calls it’s back to author mode. The lovely Laura of Coolum News was interested in Elephant Creek and we had a nice chat about what inspired me to write it (the old circus elephants of Currumbin Valley, plus the other two books The Zanzibar Moon and Kendwa’s Secret), what I’m doing next (a children’s book and more adult fiction) and other stuff. I’ll post a copy when it’s out. If you live on the Sunshine Coast look out for it.
Surprisingly, because Laura called out of the blue I wasn’t nervous while she interviewed me. It was more like a chat with a friend. I’m sure it will result in a great article. Any publicity is good publicity, right!
I’m also going to be in Seniors news both national and local, so look out for that. Hopefully, I’m also making inroads with local bookstores. Readers are loving the new book and I’m getting genuinely lovely feedback and seeing posts on Facebook and Instagram. Thank you, dear readers.
If you know a bookstore or specialist store (like a beach boutique) who may like to stock my book please tell them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Feel free to ask me any questions about my writing process. 🙂 xo
