Anyway… the shooting of the segment for the SBS doco was a HUGE amount of fun. Julie Zemiro really was a fabulous host and the production team were friendly and helpful. Sean, Karen and I had our ten cents worth about how sex will be in the future and I believe the documentary will be aired mid next year, so you’ll have until them to find out what we think! Kaaron and Sean were a little more optimistic than me about the notion that we will retain a need for connectedness and romantic love.
I got a ridiculous thrill just being in the replica space shuttle even though it looked like something from a Star Trek set. The photo above was taken there on Sean’s phone, so a little blurred.
I stayed in the heart of China town at the Quest apartments. Managed to tick two weeks on my internet instead of twenty four hours and had a nasty surprise when they tried to charge me $135 when it should have been $20. Was great to be able to wander into the Sussex Food Court and have dumplings though.
I also popped into Random House and had an exciting meeting with sales and PR about my forthcoming YA novel, Burn Bright. All sorts of good stuff in store for you all. Then had lunch with my publisher at Allen and Unwin, which was a great catch up as we plotted the next Tara Sharp books.
Did a fly-by of Galaxy Bookshop to sign some books and had a nice chat with Mark Timmony. Tara Moss had been in signing The Blood Countess, her new paranormal novel, the night before and I just missed catching up with her which was a shame. But the evening was spent well with Yunyu working out out project details for next year, which we should be able to talk about soon.
I was delighted to discover that Gloria Jeans had free wifi and then remembered that my battery was buggered, so I read for the free hour I had in between meetings.
Back home then and immediately forced to forget that I even have a writing career… it was all, I think, a dream…
