I’ve just finished the first of a three week tour and am having a weekend breather before Brisbane and Melbourne events, which include two Supanovas. I’m also still trying to find all my passwords and urls that I lost with my computer crash. So forgive me if my posts are a little sparse the next week or so.

To keep you entertained though I have posts coming soon from LA Gilman and Ilona Andrews. So stay tuned.

I would also like to say how delighted I am that BOTH Mirror Space and Transformation Space have shortlisted for an Aurealis Award in the Science Fiction Novel category. The winners will be announced in May. Many friends and colleagues are also on the lists, notably my ROR-ette writer’s group buds, Trent, Margo, Tansy, Richard and Dirk.

With my Burn Bright book tour just around the corner, I thought it was time I put some links up. If you’re in Sydney, Yunyu and I’ll be at Galaxy Books (23rd March, 5.30), Ultimo Library (21st March, 4-5pm) and Kinokuniya (24th March, 6pm).

Following that I’ll be back in Brisbane for a week, visiting libraries. (Look in the sidebar for details). Then back down to Melbourne where events are yet to be confirmed.

And there have been some gratifying reviews for Burn Bright so far, none more than the two at Inside A Dog.

And Marcus has just finished the March newsletter which is a Burn Bright special.

Well I promise that after this post I’ll resume normal transmission. But today was the maddest day!!! Yunyu and I danced and threw gnomes all day with the news that her song Angel Arias went live on iTunes and Bandcamp. Over at the Burn Bright site I’ve said some important thank you’s to people who helped us make this work.

Then by afternoon I saw that the cover for book 2 had escaped into the wild, so I shared news of that as well.

I’ve also had some great new readers join me on FB and twitter and lovely reviews coming in for both the review and the song. Yunyu and I are ecstatic. So now I will stop. But I’ll leave you with the cover for book 2. Thanks you Jaroslaw Kubicki. You are a complete genius!
