Hey ya!

I’ve been having a blast at the Somerset Literary Festival. I really love getting to know authors, and there’s heaps of them here 🙂

Some of them I’ve met before like Leigh Hobbs and others are new, like Felice Arena, who I saw today. He’s cool and engertic, after all this time in the book business!

It’s a thrill to be among keen readers and writers today. I had a steamy talk in marquee 2, sweating like crazy, cracking jokes.

Then I went over to sign anything, books, bags and hats. Somebody even asked me to sign their shoe, weird!

I was joined by other authors like Deb Abela, here’s her latest book, Ghost Club *shameless plug* at the tables. Best part of the festival, signing away!

I’m listening to Karen Brooks right now, she’s a real inspiration and I love how she honestly reveals her writing life to her crowd.

Another cool thing was the writing wall, where a blog is hosted up on a projected screen for all to see. Anybody can contribute, and I was chuffed to see many nice things said about me 🙂

Tonight is the launch, more photos and news soon!
