The Week: 29th April – 5th May

Autumn colours in Canberra.

Argh! It’s May. What is going on?!

I voted on Wednesday. The Australian election is not for another fortnight, but I’m going to be at the ballet in Sydney on that day (voting is compulsory here). I also met my candidate at the polling station. Now, could I please be spared all the trashy political ads for the next two weeks?!

I’m on!

Overnight I Googled myself to find my blog, and instead discovered I now have (so far, mostly empty!) author profiles on and I also discovered that the tentative release date for my first book is the 4th of September. I hadn’t known until then!

Not exactly exciting news, and the title of my book is only the working title – we’re still yet to have a conversation about changing it – but it’s a start…

(If you remember my announcement that I sold my first historical romance book in March, and are wondering why I have a Harlequin contract and a HarperCollins profile, it’s because I write for a romance imprint of HarperCollins that runs their contracts through Harlequin Australia. Yes, you’re allowed to be confused!)
