Oh my god! She’s still alive!
Yes, yes, I live. I don’t sleep a lot, but I live ;p
There was a launch event for the catalogue’s release last night and Talitha Kalago and I attended. We had a wonderful time talking with fellow authors, QWC staff, agents, and editors who attended and I *may* have pigged out on hors d’oeurves ;p I also enjoyed dressing up and wearing high heels for the first time since the Aurealis Awards last year.
The Books From Our Backyard catalogue contains a massive list of books by Queensland authors, covering every genre(no joke, everything fiction and non fiction alike), so is well worth checking out to help you pad out your to-read pile (because we all totally need help with that!).
The books featured in the catalogue will remain on display at the State Library Queensland, but if South Bank isn’t within reachable distance for you don’t forget 18 is available free online from here
