Hi there. This is a reminder about next Saturday morning on Capital Radio 101.7 and to update you on the progress of “Turn on a Light”, the third and latest novel.
Tony Howes and Dale James present Capital Events from 9.00 am to noon on 101.7. Since January, either on the second last or last Saturday of each month, they play one of my short stories, read by our son, Paul. Next Saturday 30th April, they’ll be playing one of my favourites, partly because it provokes a great deal of thought. It’s called “Assimilation” and you may find it a stimulating thing to hear. Then again you may not, but I reckon it says a good deal about our history and the present ways we deal with Indigenous people. Whether you like it or not, however, there’ll be the chance to win either of the novels I have published to date: “Hiding Place” and “The Wiluna Solution”.
As for “Turn on a Light”, it has just gone to the printers, which is exciting. I should get the first proof this coming week. Its major theme is awakenings by organisations, communities and individuals to the struggle needed to overcome social inequities and allow all people to lead full and rewarding lives.
We are now arranging a launch date and site, and will let you know as soon as we have worked all that out.
