Four more sleeps until publication day

On Monday, August 29th The Monsoon Bride will hit bookshop shelves both real and virtual. While that once sounded far, far away, it is now only a matter of days.  Reviews are scheduled. Interviews too.  On Tuesday, I had my hair cut in panicked anticipation of a phone interview this morning (true).  And a dental splint fitted because I’ve been grinding my teeth so hard, a pointy bit broke off.

All this excitement peaks on September 14th at the launch for The Monsoon Bride, which takes place at Readings bookshop in Carlton, Melbourne. Kate Holden will preside (I highly recommend both of her memoirs).

It is especially nice to launch the book at Readings.  The Readings Foundation actively supports writers and readers across Australia. Together with the Wheeler Centre, they instituted and funded Fellowships for all three authors shortlisted in the unpublished manuscripts section of the 2010 Premier’s awards. That fellowship made a big difference to me during the final months of editing The Monsoon Bride for publication.

I am very much looking forward to the launch. Would love to see you there.
