Watch out for the crowds hurrying behind you, but they're in a hurry to come and see me at a couple of public events in New Zealand in the next two months.
Back in December I received an email inviting me to be part of a group of New Zealand authors who were planning a large joint book launch. That launch has now taken on a life of its own, and will see me flying to Wellington on the 18th February for a three hour event at Meow Cafe with six other amazing New Zealand authors for the first Kiwi Book Feast.
I know that through Facebook and Twitter, there are many of you I've interacted with online, but which I have yet to meet. I would love to finally meet you at Meow on the 18th February. We're providing nibbles, naturally, and there will be live readings, prizes and our books will be available to purchase, which we will of course sign for you.
And now I have a booking for March. As part of the Auckland Arts Festival, the Eden/Albert Board invited local artists to be part of the White Night on the 18th March. They specifically mentioned involving the iconic Dominion Road. I was all over that invite like a non contagious rash.
I'm happy to announce that Antique Alley will be open the evening of the 18th March, from 6pm to 11.30pm, and I'll be there, in the shop, doing live readings from my books and book signings. Both sides of the shop will be open, with my brother manning the business side of things.
What will April bring?! Should I pencil in April the 18th for some future event?!
So...who is going to come and see me in action in Wellington on the 18th February, or in Auckland on the 18th March?
