Thought it was time to catch you all up on some bits and pieces. Firstly, I’ll be at CONQUEST, the Brisbane Star Trek con, this Saturday from 9.15 to 10 am. I’ll be a giving a general writing chat. The con is at the Park Regis and I’m looking forward to catching up with a few people I haven’t seen for a while.
The following weekend is the Redlitzer Gala Event where we’ll be announcing the winners of the Redlitzer writing competitions. Louise Cusack, Rowena Cory Daniells and myself will be awarding the prizes for the different categories. On the Saturday, I’m booked in to do a world building workshop at QWC. Need a set number for that to go ahead and I think there are still some places left. If you’re interested check it out here:

On the 25th October I’m speaking at the Victoria Point library. The details are as follows. Please come and support this event and say hello:
An evening with Marianne Delacourt
In website news, Joelene will be attending the red carpet event for Judge Dredd (thanks to The Spotlight Report), so look forward to an exclusive on that. We have Embrace by Jessica Shirvington as our Burn Bright Book Club Book this month and a Burn Bright interview with Jessica to accompany it.
For those that haven’t realised STAGE FRIGHT is now out and the reviews have been heart-warming. Grab your copy for the Xmas stocking.
Also not long until SHINE LIGHT hits stores. I will (finally!) have some news for you before the end of the year on availability of the Night Creatures series in the US.
Sadly, I will not be in Adelaide or Brisbane for Supanova. Family commitments have taken priority (my son only turns 21 one time!), but I have spoken with Ineke and I will be in GC and Melbourne next April. Sorry for those of you coming to get books autographed. I have bookplates available that I can post. Let me know below in the comments section or email me through the contact form.
That’s about it for the moment!
