Well, I see LJ is having problems so I am wondering if that's why no one has updated... unless no one has updated, in which case I hope you're all okay.
I am on the tail of the two week break and I wish it could last forever. Still, at least I had a break and now it's time to think about work seriously! Much as I don't want to...

Nick has a new book a new book A NEW BOOK NEW BOOK NEW BOOK coming out this week, called The Fix. Perth Liz told me about it. I am planning to order a copy. I am very excited. I looked at his fb page but all these people actually met him over there so I got jealous and slunk away!!! They met him. Dammit. Any time I was in Brisbane I'd imagine he'd just, you know, walk down the road past me and I'd casually say to my children, hey, that's Nick Earls...
His books don't even seem to come here which really annoys me. I'll have to order a copy. Postage is a pain though. Can you imagine buying something for, say, $15, and then being charged $15 postage. Aaaaaaaaaargh. It's the only time I wish we didn't live on an island at the bottom of the world! Anyway, I'm looking forward to The Fix. I can't wait.

And while I'm on the podium, I'm so frustrated by the starvation in Somalia. Why can't the people in charge LET THE FOOD THROUGH. OMG. Children are dying. Constantly. It's so wrong.

p.s. sold 85 copies of Safe on Smashwords! Time to do some better writing, I imagine! That was really just practice. I hope I CAN write better...

Have been unable to post, comment, or read. Sometimes unable to log in... I think that's been fairly universal but a bit erratic so people have had little windows of hope and eagerness!!

85 copies is actually quite good for a book that hasn't been 'marketed' in any real way.

Have you tried http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/ as I think they deliver free to NZ? I checked and they have Nick's books in stock.

Ooh thanks! Nick was just saying how hard it is to get a book into our market. He's doing well getting invited to five states in Oz for this book!

I haven't had LJ problems here but the site overall admitted some huge problems so that explains some of the quietness!

Yeah, my only marketing is your review LOL!

OMG love that icon! Intense cat!
