HTDYF in Australia

How To Ditch Your Fairy will be published in its shiny new paperback Australian edition next month.

So. Very. Soon.

If you go over to the Allen & Unwin Alien Onion blog you’ll see what it looks like.

And guess what? I’ll be doing a wee bit of a mini Oz book tour. I’m dead excited.

Two of my events are in Melbourne, including the actual book launch:

    22 Feb 2009, 2:00PM – 3:30PM
    Me and Simmone Howell in conversation + cake
    State Library of Victoria – Conference Centre
    328 Swanston Street
    (Entrance 3 on La Trobe Street)
    Melbourne, Victoria
    Go here to book

    24 Feb 2009, 6:30PM
    Australian launch of How To Ditch Your Fairy
    My book will be introduced by the lovely Lili Wilkinson!
    Readings Carlton
    309 Lygon St,
    Carlton, Victoria

Please to come out and see me, oh lovely Melbourne peoples. Bring your friends! Bring your friends’ friends!

Then I’ll be at the Perth Writer’s festival. Not sure of my exact schedule yet, but will post as soon as I know it. I haven’t been to Perth in an age so it will be fun to catch up with my sandgroper friends. Here’s the dates I’ll be there, if not my actual schedule:

There may also be a Sydney event in March, but nothing definite yet. Fingers crossed. I would hate to slight my home town.

Can’t wait to see some of you out and about in the real world.

    Will be there (sans bells).

    It’s a shame you can’t come to Canberra. Both you and Scott have a large fan base in Canberra. Maybe in another trip you can go there. Please!

    Sir Tessa: Yay! Though I really think you need to bring bells.

    Jesi-la: Nice to know we have fans in Canberra. Thanks! But I just goes where Allen & Unwin sends me. My life is not my own . . .

    How exciting! I’m coming to the launch, even though I’ll be a little bit shy in your oh-so-gracious presence.
    And we get Lili Wilkinson too? Extra awesome!

    So i know that this is really late, but do you think you could do a reading in Sydney on time? You and Scott could come?
    Twould be great if you could 🙂
