Thanks for the welcome Karen (have been a fan austcrimefiction.org for a while), and hope you enjoy the book (if you need a review copy let me know). Looking forward to acquainting myself with crimespace better over the coming days...cheers...
Hi Karen, nice to meet a fellow Aussie from the bush! I hope the Vic fires didn't effect you too much, we had our own here in 2007 and almost lost everything. There's nothing like country air to fuel the reading bug is there? ;)
Hi Karen, Thanks for the heads up for AustCrime, have already joined and had a recon. If you lived in the city before the 'Tree Change' you will know how it feels to stand outside and hear, well, very little.... Just luv the head space, enough noise going on in there without suburbia butting in... he he. Have you had the lovely rain, hope so, think central west needs it. Joining up with the two sites produced half a chapter yesterday, that's progress. Now, just someone down here for coffee and chats...
Hi Karen....it was great to hear from you. I must admit to being a bit on the lazy side when it comes to my writing but I have been getting plenty of research down, alsoi loyts of books of notes but I have been quite sick with visits to hospitals. I know Ovoca quite well....the nightmare of pulling a two horse float on an empty tank of petrol from there to Ballarat. We did stop the panaic attacks by playing two up to see which one of us was going to get a horse from the float and ride to Ballarat to get a Jerry Can. LUckily I got to drive the car and the horse trainer rode in the panic seat. lol
Hi Karen, thank you for the welcome, yes, loved Layer Cake as well, and I don't watch many movies either. Have paid attention to your authors and looking forward to checking them out. Glad to have found someone else who enjoy tartan noir !
It's not out yet, still a w-i-p, but thanks for the add. Enjoyed hearing Lisa Unger and Gregg Hurwitz at "Crime Pays" at Brisbane Writers Festival today with Briz writer JJ Cooper. Blog to be posted on it tonight!
Thanks for the welcome Karen. I posted a couple of comments on your AustCrimeFiction website, about your reviews of Tropic of Death and Fear the Worst. Not sure if they posted correctly though. In short I too was disappointed with ToD, and thought FtW was a great thriller.
