Thanks very much to Paperchain bookshop, Manuka and the fabulous Kaaron Warren for hosting the Canberra launch of Lotus Blue and Crossroads of Canopy last Thursday night.
I attended Swancon in Perth last weekend and co-chaired the Aurealis Awards with Glenda Larke. Managed to slip in another launch for Lotus Blue, despite the fact that Stefen managed to sell all copies before guest launcher Sean Williams had a chance to utter a word. It’s always such a treat to catch up with my Perth buddies.
Last week the Lotus Blue and Crossroads of Canopy launch trail wound its way to the fabulous Avid Reader bookshop in Brisbane. A big thanks to events manager Krissy, superstar Isobelle & everyone who turned up on the night.
Thank you to the many folks who turned up to the double launch of Thoraiya’s Crossroads of Canopy and my Lotus Blue at Kinokuniya last Thursday night – and to Galaxy bookshop on Saturday afternoon. Three cheers for Kate Forsyth and Margo Lanagan for doing the honours!
Over at John Scalzi’s Whatever blog, I’m talking about the enduring power of stupidity, and what it takes to save the world from it… or not.
Hey Aussie readers, Lotus Blue is now available for purchase from Booktopia and Dymocks – and all good bookshops!
