Thanks to Eden’s Exchange for having me over for a chat. Also thanks to Soul Dancer for two Blog Talk Radio chats. I introduced myself to Soul Dancer, host of the program, Gay Souls, on the first broadcast. On the second I was joined by two fans of my writing. How’s that for an ego boost?

Click here for the first broadcast, and here for the second.

It’s now official. Both ‘Drama Queens with Love Scenes’ and its sequel, ‘Drama Queens with Adult Themes’ will be released through Wilde City Press. The contract for the first novel has just been signed.

At this stage I’d like to thank Charles River Press for first releasing the original novel. And big thanks also go out to my late editor, Mary Belk, and the talented graphic artist, Laurie McAdams.

You all made my book come alive. Now it’s time to leave the nest.

The t’s have been crossed and the i’s all dotted on a new contract signed yesterday with Wilde City Press for the Drama Queens sequel.

Yes, it’s a long awaited sequel, but it will still be a little while as polishing it up with my assigned editor will take some time.

It’s now official. Drama Queens go New Orleans! I’m leaving on a jet plane in May to be one of the speakers at the Saints and Sinners Literary Festival.

This festival takes GLBT authors from all stages of their career, so with such a great opportunity I’ll be making sure I take advantage of the Master Classes offered by Edmund White and Felice Picano.

A big thank you to the organisers, and if you’re in town, come and say hello.

My likeness has been added to a comic strip (kinda cheeky but nice) by talented cartoonist ‘Chaz’ who delights in drawing his Twitter followers. He has his own books out, so make sure you check out his work here.

To view the comic in all its glory, just click on the image.

Thanks to author Kirsty Vizard for having me over at her blog, All In One Place for a chat.

May 13 2013

I’ve just found out that the editor for my novel, passed away. Although I never met her personally, the work and enthusiasm she showed through emails back and forth was always a delight, and her mentor-ship was second to none.

We both learnt (learned) the differences in US and Australian spelling and grammar, and continually clarified both versions of English to each other.

I have a folder on my computer full of advice, changes, and suggestions, which I have shared with other upcoming authors.

Although I only had an email relationship with you, Mary Belk, I felt I knew you as  you helped make my writing what it is today.
