Kate Where is the Sydney bookstore event for Quintana in October, if you don't mind me asking?

message 3: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Yay for the small Perth event! Trust me, there's plenty of interest!

message 4: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Pleeeease come to the Austin Teen Book Festival in September! You have many, many fans here! :)

message 5: by Heather (new)

Heather We'd love to see you here in Brisbane if you have time!

message 6: by Melina (new)

Melina Marchetta Kate, the Sydney event will be either in the inner West or CBD. We decide that in August.

And Amanda, it would be way too indulgent for me to travel to the US two times within three months, but Austin is so at the top of the list that I hope I get a chance to go one of these years.

Fingers crossed for Perth, Taneika and Rebecca.

Heather, I usually get to travel to a city if it's part of a publicity tour or I'm invited by a festival or organisation. I hope I get to speak there again. I had a fantastic bookstore event for The Piper's Son at Riverbend Books in 2010.

message 7: by Anna (new)
