Cyberlaunching

Today I have my fancy dress on - the one with the shiny things on the front, my coloured glass jewellery (more shiny things) and gold sandals - OK I'm not much of a fashion follower - but I do have an important job today. I'm launching a book. Not just any book. A book by a very talented Australian writer who is also a friend. A wonderful verse novel by the author of one of my favourites, Pearl Verses the World.

So drop in here to attend the cyber launch of Sally Murphy's Toppling. We're partying all day.

Today is also the release day for a book I've been looking forward to ever since I saw the cover and read the blurb. Gabrielle Wang's Little Paradise. So it's busy reading evening for me.

I'm also celebrating one more thing- keeping the bubbles inside for the moment but watch this space... Today is also the release date of my latest book Jaguar Warrior, an adventure story set at the end of the Aztec Empire. the Spanish have risen against the Aztec people and Atl must take a message for help... But why should he? Until they needed his help he was a slave imprisoned for sacrifice. Even as he runs, another warrior hunts him down. Should Atl run for help or run for his own freedom? Read the Book Chook's review here.
