As a newish arrival in Australian I think Australia Day is a good day for me to launch my book from my Website…
Australia has been good to me and I like to celebrate that on Australia Day. Whatever day the powers-that-be-choose will be fine with me. I am one of the many new residents here who want to thank the country for welcoming us.
Mayhem in Melbourne -Behind the scenes at Caruthers Real Estate.
My book is beside me on my desk and every time I look at it I want to shout ‘whoopee’ and ‘wow’ and thrust it in the air and wave it about. I need someone around to high five with me. There is nobody with me as I write this. Writing is something I do on my own like all writers. It’s a solo activity.
When I look at the book I am over whelmed with memories. The fun times, the frustrating times, all the times I said, ‘I can’t do this’ then the excitement and wonder when I looked at the first copy. There was so much emotion and hard work before I thrust my completely formed and finished ‘baby’ into the world.
The gestation took years– how long does it take to write a book? How long did you take to write yours or are you still writing? What about the next one?
At the moment it is only in on-line books so my challenge now is to get people to find it and read it. My friends and family? Yes! But how about all those other people in the world who I’m sure would laugh as they read, possibly not cry but certainly be entertained by the hijinks and stories of office life and the life of a property manager in a Melbourne real estate office.
Here’s the link to Mayhem in Melbourne on Amazon. It’s available in all on-line books shops.
It is a wonderful sunny day in Melbourne for Australia Day, about 25 degrees and life is good.
These sunflowers that live next door to me have their beautiful faces heavy with our much needed rain during the week. I’m sure their bent heads are saying ‘Namaste’ to the rain gods.
