Thank you Books + Publishing for the lovely review for ‘Shockingly Good Stories’ (It goes on sale July 2nd, but you can pre-order now). The whole review is really wonderful so go to Books + Publishing and subscribe if you want to read it all.
I get asked for writing advice all the time. Usually I try to explain my total ignorance of how I manage to carry this off. But when my niece asked me I cracked and recorded this video. It’s all the wisdom I have. If it’s not helpful to you I do apologise. But it is seriously the structure I use myself.
I will be visiting Brisbane in the week of 7th June 2021. If you’d like me to do an author presentation at your school please contact Speakers Ink on 07 3040 8465 or firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m happy to travel as far as the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast or Toowoomba.
Cancel your plans for 2nd February 2021 so you can camp out on the footpath outside your local bookstore that morning. The long awaited 9th instalment of the FRIDAY BARNES series will be going on sale.
I’m super proud of these books. It was great to plot a five book series with a full story arc. I got to write a portrait of my beloved home town. And I got the opportunity to explore so many ideas and issues close to my heart. Plus I got to write some crackingly good fun arguments! I’d say I’m going to miss the characters but I know they’ll be forever rattling around in my head. I hope you all enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed creating them because that was a lot.
To buy your copy visit your local bookstore. It’s so important to support small local businesses in these challenging times. Or you can just click on the Book Depository banner at the top right of this page.
Tomorrow on the podcast I’ll be reading the first two chapters of this book. Check it out here at bedtimestories.buzzsprout.com
