It’s still a long way off, but I am thrilled to let you know about a new and exciting readers’ festival coming to West Australia next year.
It’s the West Coast Fiction Festival, put together by a great group of top-selling WA authors and it’s featuring brilliant traditional-published and indie-published writers from all across the country, (and some international authors) coming under the one roof at the Rendezvous Hotel in Scarborough on November 3, 2018.
And guess what? I will be there… just perhaps not with my pink beanie (it will be almost Summer in Perth by then and my ears would melt!)
What is really exciting is that I will have at least one new book out before the Festival, to join The Vineyard In The Hills as print paperback releases. I’ll also be there with Who Killed The Bride? From my Butterfly House series, to wow everyone with what I reckon will be the most unusual book cover in the Hotel that day! (Yes, I am biased!)
The idea of the Festival is to bring along your own books written by the signing authors (for signatures), plus there will be new books to buy (of course); and authors to meet, greet and have a chat and photo with, if you like 🙂
You can find the list of authors at the Festival’s web page, or click here. There is also a Facebook group set up to give people information about the Festival. Join the group here. And there is also a mailing list you can join by clicking here.
Besides connecting readers with their favourite authors, and new authors, the goal of the event is to raise money for Share the Dignity – a charity which supports homeless women in Australia.
For all the information, go visit http://www.wcfictionfestival.com.au/ and bookmark the website.
Plus there is dancing… but more about that later 🙂
I can’t wait to be part of this great initiative for fiction in Western Australia…
