I got to sleep in a little on Thursday morning, then spent some time gazing at the view. Which mean I managed to catch a fairly rare occurrence: the opening of the Pyrmont Bridge.
On Wednesday I flew to Syndey, where Nicola met me at the airport. I’d told her on Monday that I’ve aways wanted to be greeted on arrival at an airport by someone holding up a sign with my name on it, and she obliged.
I’ve had a busy week touring in Canberra and Sydney, and there are going to be a few new posts appearing here over the next few days as I catch up on reporting.
Last night I had a wonderful dinner at the Boathouse restaurant with booksellers, an editor and reviewer, and some of the Orbit team.
The big news I’ve been waiting for the right moment to post about is that I’m going to be a Guest of Honour at Contact: Swancon 2009, a convention running over the coming Easter weekend in Perth.
I’ll be doing the full range of guesty duties, including signings, speaking on panels, a guest speech/presentation, participating in ceremonies, partying at the Masquerade and more! You can buy a pass for the day, or come join us for the whole convention. For more information check out the Contact website linked above.
