Listen to an extract of City of Lies!
August 26th, 2011
Claudia Black of Farscape fame narrated the audio version of Museum of Thieves. And now she has recorded Book 2: City of Lies! She has done another brilliant job and you can listen to an extract from the very first chapter here.
I only just found this, and it was so exciting to listen to it! Let me know what you think.
Meanwhile we are getting closer and closer to the launch of the book at the beginning of October! I’ve been busy working on the two Tasmanian launches – one in Hobart on Sunday October 2nd, 11 am at the Baha’i Centre, and another in Launceston on Saturday October 15th, 11 am at Fullers Bookshop. Everyone is welcome!
This week I was suddenly sick of winter, and sick of staring at the computer, so on Tuesday morning I packed up my bags and my favourite pillow and headed up the east coast of Tasmania to Swansea for a couple of days.
I stayed at Redcliffe House, which is very close to where my father used to live when he was a boy.
The weather was perfect, and the paddocks were green. On Wednesday I drove up past Moulting Lagoon to Freycinet Peninsula, where I climbed Mt Amos …
… or rather nearly climbed Mt Amos. I reckon I was about 20 minutes from the top when I turned back.
The wind was blowing a gale and the whole thing got a bit too steep and scary. I felt as if I was about to be blown off the face of the mountain.
I came most of the way down on my backside – but still felt very proud of myself.
Freycinet has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world – I haven’t been there for years and had forgotten how lovely and dramatic it was.
On the way down I took some photos of scribbly gums.
