Keepers Book 3: Path of Beasts
July 20th, 2011
Hooray, I’ve just handed in Book 3! I finished it last week, did a final read-through on Monday, and emailed it to my agent Margaret Connolly yesterday morning. Now I am feeling both pleased at having finished, and slightly bereft. I suspect it’s a bit like seeing your youngest child leave home. 🙂
While I wait to hear back from the various publishers, there’s plenty to be getting on with – including organising the October launch of Book 2: City of Lies. We had the first book launch at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, which was perfect. But that’s being renovated so we’re scouting around for another interesting venue. And thinking about how to make the launch fun.
At the moment I’m thinking masks. Big masks, little masks, cat, pigeon and slommerkin masks. They all turn up at one point or another in the book, some concealing good and some concealing evil. So it would be nice to have lots of them at the launch. Hmm, what else, I wonder …
I’m actually having two launches this time – one in Hobart, southern Tasmania, where I live and one in Launceston, northern Tasmania, where I grew up. The Hobart one is on Sunday October 2nd and the Launceston one is on Saturday October 15th.
