Where to Start ... aaahhh ... Stage Fright!

So much cooking the next month or so. Am still writing to deadline but time for SwanCon is creeping closer. Among the many fun things I get to do there, is to launch the new anthology from Ticonderoga Publications called Damnation and Dames. Liz Gryzb and Russell B. Farr have been friends of mine forever and a day and I’m excited to be in town and available to launch this for them. Later next week, I’m also having an interview with Ian Nichols for the West Australian.

After I get back there are all sorts of appearances coming up, including Bundaberg Writefest and the Golf Coast Literati event. But before I go, I get to cross swords with my mate Alex Adsett and others on a ASA panel on digital rights.

So much fun stuff, and timely. I feel like I need to get out of the house. Finishing up two books over the early part of the year has meant living a very routine life. So ready for time out!

And speaking of my books, today I got the new cover for the next Tara Sharp novel. This is a departure from the previous look and I like it a lot. in this episode, Tara travels to Brisbane to help out a music promoter with his troublesome client. Sharp madness ensues!

The book will be released in September. For a big, close look at it, check out the Tara Sharp tumblr page.

See what y’all think!
