Hello? Is anyone out there? It's been so long between blog postings, there's a very good chance I am shouting into a vacuum with this posting -- but in the event there are a couple of London-based or London-bound ATLP fans, this one's for you.
'A Town Like Paris' is finally being published in the UK and should be available in bookstores from mid-January.
To mark this most auspicious occasion, the Showgirl and I are popping across the Channel for a special launch event.
Australian author in London, Kathy Lette, has kindly agreed to perform the honours and give ATLP its official UK launch at a soirée in the venerable Marylebone bookstore, Daunt Books.
There will be Aussie wine (thanks to Thompson Estate) and in keeping with Aussie tradition, a real-life raffle of a hamper of Aussie delicacies (courtesy of The Australian Shop)
We're welcoming all-comers -- so if you happen to be in the vicinty, don't hesitate to drop in and say hello.
UK LAUNCH EVENT DETAILS
Thursday 29 January
83 Marylebone High St
London W1U 4QW
Hope to see you there ...
PS: Yes, the photo above is the new Aussie cover. Another fantastic photo from the exceedingly talented Carla Coulson - whose new book, Paris Tango, has to be seen to be believed. It's a photographic triumph!
