Australian Book Launch & Tour

As I type the wife is running around the apartment, deciding which of her countless pairs of shoes she won't be packing for the trip back to Australia next week.

We leave Paris mid-next week, endure the world's longest plane flight and arrive back in the homeland just in time to get stuck into the Aussie launch of A Town Like Paris.

The good folk at Hachette Australia (my publishers) have organised a three-city book promo tour - complete with book signings, cocktails and canap├ęs. I'll be variously bunkering down in bookstores or propping up a bar in a city centre near you - it would be great if you were able to pop by and say hello.

The details of my bookstore signings - plus the details of my Sydney launch event - are listed below:

Hi,
I have just read your book. I grabbed it quickly to take away on a work trip without knowing anything about it. I loved it!! It was laugh out loud material. I always love an Aussie living/travelling in Europe story. They are usually formulaic so I know I will usually enjoy it even though it is predicatble. But this book broke that mould, which was great and made it all the more enjoyable.
Thanks for the great read.
Susan
