Viva Brisvegas... and other points south and west

The blog road show continues apace (is that a word?), Legion of Fans (LOF).

Hot on the heals of well-attended (if I do say so) speaking engagements in the very south of New South Wales (at Albury and Wagga) and the very north of Victoria (Wodonga), I can now release more dates of the SILENT PREDATOR tour of libraries, bookshops and pubs of Australia.

A short word of thanks, if I may, to the Northcott Society’s Wagga branch and its charming honchos Graham and Jenny; the delightful Magpie’s Nest Restaurant; the very friendly people of Albury and Wodonga; the excellent chef and attentive staff at the Quality on Olive Hotel, Albury; and my very good friends at Collins Booksellers in Wagga and Albury.

And now, without further ado, I bring you my next engagements. Come one, come all, because Mrs Blog needs to one day be the wife of a rich and famous author (and I’d like it to be me)…
