Novels in the Wheatbelt

We’re off again on another tour to promote two published novels and the almost ready-to-publish “Turn on a Light”. The overall itinerary is outlined below, but we are immensely grateful to the personnel in the Community Resource Centres (CRCs) for their willingness to be involved and for their support and promotion. We may be wrong, but we believe a top programs funded through Royalties for Regions is a CRC, which gives a meeting place and a communication centre. Karen and I recall going to the Goomalling CRC for a presentation last year to see it had continued to publish the community newspaper we founded through Goomalling DHS in 1986 called “The Endeavour”. I was principal then and to see the paper surviving 30 years later was a warming thing.

Anyway, the itinerary (and we present at the CRC is each town with refreshments provided) is:

Merredin, Monday 11th April, 10.00 am

Kellerberrin: Tuesday 12th April, 2.30 pm

Southern Cross: Wednesday 13th April, 2.00 pm

Bruce Rock:  Thursday 14th April, 10.30 am

Quairading: Thursday 14th April, 2.30 pm

Cunderdin: Friday 15th April, 10.00 am

What appeals to us about these trips is reconnecting. As a child, I spent time in Tammin, nestled between Cunderdin and Kelleberrin when my father, Frank, was principal. I spent time in Southern Cross as principal of the district high school. I recall coaching Tammin in football more years ago than I care to remember and playing against Quairading, Cunderdin and Kellerberrin – and surviving even Danny Malone.

So if you know people in these towns, please pass the information onto them. We’d love to see them. And let them know, if they like the game, that Australian Rules Football plays a major part on one of the novels. And romance and my views on Aboriginal culture are also present.
