Book Tour Presentations

We’ve just returned from a good time in the South-West, taking in the libraries of Capel, Busselton, MargIMAG0010_BURST001aret River and Australind. Our thanks to the delightful librarians for their assistance and support and the many friendly people who attended to IMAG0008the hear the presentations. Below are photos of two presentation groups showing a sample of people from each one.

Launch of Turn on a Light

Just a reminder that the launch my third novel, “Turn on a Light” will be at 5.00 pm Monday 11th July at Mr Walker on the Mends St Jetty. Refreshments involving drinks and nibblies will be available, as well as the opportunity to buy the novel at a discounted price. In fact, all three novels will be available at a considerable discount, but only for Monday night. If you’d like to come and haven’t yet let me know, email to to express interest and let me know the number of people coming as well. There are just a few spots left, so be quick.

Audio Books

I’ve been told the audio-book of The WILUNA Solution is just on completed and will be available very soon. I will let you know when the production is finished, as well as how to purchase it and the two formats it will be in. (I believe one format is CD and the other is mp3, but as I say, I will let you know.) My thanks, however, to Dinesh Burah who is the Manager, Information and Education Services and Susie Punch as the Audio-Production Officer, both at VisAbility. In addition, I must compliment Elwyn for the marvellous job of reading the story and his constant search for correct pronounciation and Jane for her role in supporting that. For those who don’t know the production process, it’s time-consuming for all those involved, but done with immense care and attention to detail within sound studies at VisAbility. And my knowledge is that the readers of the stories are all volunteers which I deeply admire. I also have been told that Hiding Place is due to commence production on the next few weeks which is very exciting.

Formats for Novels

Each novel is available as a hard copy which can be purchased from me or from certain booksellers (email and I will let you know the cost and other details). Alternatively, email me on the same address for the ISBN so your favourite book-seller can make contact, or give him or her the email address. As a third option, “The WILUNA Solution” and “Turn on a Light” are available in ebook format on Amazon, and I will be putting “Hiding Place” up in the same format in a few days. Again, I will let you know.

      Thanks for commenting and there is a blog which deals with Pidjin English, which remote Aboriginal speak and use. Most of what we think you are calling spelling problems are because a lot of conversation stories are written in Pidjin.
