Hi Rose - I am in the Dandenongs, you're offer is very kind - didn't realise that the Scarlet Stilettos were upcoming - I think I'm starting to feel the pull of Leo's :) The book was fabulous - I got my copy from Borders in the end - same as you I was digging around all over the place and then bang .. it popped up in Borders at Knox City, just when I'd about given up hope of seeing it :)
I shall have to negotiate some time off for good behaviour with himself - I confess that my next door neighbour and I are booked to see Ian Rankin and Shane Maloney at the Collins Street Baptist Church (she does the city much more often and doesn't seem at all fazed by the idea of being there amongst all those people! :) ) so I'll have to see if I can beg another outing!
(We're joint babysitting a very ill dog at the moment, normally this sort of thing doesn't require "permission")
Hi Rose - I'm not a member (but I should be). I've always been too much of a sook to head down off the mountain to Leo's Spaghetti Bar - I only got to the city for the writer's festival and if I'm dragged kicking and screaming [VBEG]
Rose, best of luck to you in the pursuit of your dream to become a writer. I started writing again when life handed me a golden opportunity--my job got outsourced overseas, and I finally had more time to write. I loved turning a lemon into lemonade, lol.
Just wander. The forums are broken down into categories and the latest 3-4 of each show. But press view all and you can scan tons of topics. Same with the blogs. It is a great place for learning about everything crime writing. Cool input from a lot of very focused and motivated people.
I can't believe you found your way here. What a wonderful surprise! Welcome aboard. Snoop around and you'll see why I rave about this place. It's my home away from home away from home!
Hi Rose. Welcome! I'm still learning how to maneuver around here. I enjoy clicking on everyone's pics and reading their bios. If they have a website or blog, sometimes I check it out too. However, I'm probably Queen of the Prostinators...or maybe Princess Time Waster. :) There are some good discussions. Be sure to check out the contest.. It has to do with around Australia so might enjoy entering. :)
