Today I was taken around to sign stock and meet booksellers in Perth by Todd, one of the local accounts manager. First stop Dymocks Garden City:
Perth Bookstore Tour
Where Justin brought out a nice big stack of books for me to sign while he and I talked writing and good characters. Then a trip into the city followed, to Borders.
Where Stefen Super SF Seller recommended some good books while I signed mine. Next up was Dymocks Perth:
Where the lovely Tyne posed for a photo with me. And then we scooted off to Planet Bookshop in Mount Lawley, which is an amazing shop with a vast range and (my favourite) couches or cafe seats so you can sit and relax.
Where I got a shot of Paul, my partner, and the very friendly and insightful Todd. Here we signed more stock…
And Robin and I had a fascinating chat about fantasy publishing in Australia. After a lovely lunch with another Robin (this time an accounts manager) we headed back to the city to White Dwarf Books.
Where I hung out, laughed and had a really fun time with Peter the Wonder Goth, Sha, Tanya and Tim. We dragged ourselves away to our final destination:
Fantastic Planet and a cuppa and Tim Tam thanks to the lovely Elaine.
