I’m back from the writing retreat. We had a fabulous time and I reached the halfway point of the first draft of The Ambassador’s Mission. Now I have a few frantic days to catch up and prepare for the launch of The Magician’s Apprentice at the Aurealis Awards on Saturday.
It’s all getting very exciting! This morning I received the first report of a ‘sighting’ of The Magician’s Apprentice in a Melbourne bookstore. And yesterday the schedule for my Brisbane visit arrived. I’ll be signing books in these shops next Tuesday (the 27th):
9am Angus & Robertson Morayfield
Shop 62 Morayfield Shopping Centre
Morayfield QLD 4506
10:00am Dymocks Chermside
Shop 249 Westfield Shoppingtown
Chermside QLD 4032
11am Mega Books
Toombul QLD 4012
12:00pm Riverbend Books
193 Oxford Stree
Bulimba QLD 4171
1:30pm Dymocks Indooroopilly
Level 3, Indooroopilly Shoppingtown
318 Moggill Road
Indooroopilly QLD 4068
2:30pm Dymocks Brisbane City
Cnr Queen & Edward Streets
Brisbane QLD 4000
So if you happen to be at one of these locations while I’m there, come up and say ‘hi’ and I’ll sign your books personally. (Or your autograph book. Or your bus ticket. Or your arm.) Otherwise, pop into the shops when you can for a signed copy of The Magician’s Apprentice. And probably as many other books of mine that I can sign in the time we’ve got.
Toury dates for Canberra and Sydney are now likely to occur in late February and early March. I’ll post ’em when I know ’em.
