This is about my fourth year attending the Logan Library SF Month finale day. It’s always a fun time and has grown enourmously in the last few years. Here are the details for the upcoming panel. Hope to see some of you there!

As part of Helen Lowe’s guest author series, celebrating the launch of her new novel, Heir of the Night, my thoughts on why I love spec fic are now up for you all to read and ruminate over. Perhaps you feel the same way? Perhaps you don’t? I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts.

The series has been really interesting and has featured a bunch of great Antipodean authors including Nicole Murphy, Gillian ‘Pink Fluffy’ Polack, Annie Hamilton, Tim Jones, Juliet Marillier, Kim Falconer and MORE.

Who watched Castle on Sunday night? If you did then you will have seen Castle arriving at his book launch like Brangelina at the Oscars. I nearly choked over the ridiculously played out misconception of how it is for authors – even the very successful ones.

It makes me wonder if the screenwriters are having a lend of the audience, or whether they’re just indulging a wet dream (Charlaine Harris, Stephanie Myer or JKR, feel free to disagree with me). Does anyone else get annoyed by this?

It may be tongue in cheek but there’s plenty who would not see that.

Fortunately, I love Susan Sullivan!
