Recording the day…

‘Twas a busy one. Though you’d not know it to look now, had a big clean up this morning, got some groceries to tide us through the week, picked up some more book boxes from the removalists, then came home to start packing again. The truly awesome   (and Benji!) came at midday and we got all the big bookcase and knick knacks (time consuming, with all the little fiddlies having to find their own boxes – A said it was like an IQ test!) cupboards packed. Thank goodness for  , because it would have taken three times as long without her I’m sure! Yakking does make the time, and work, go faster 🙂  We also went over the proof copy of Horn, and fixed a few final minor issues, and the redo of New Ceres Nights. Look for both at Conjecture next weekend! Horn looks freaking AWESOME – you should go order it 🙂

Friends from Queensland (over for treatment for lung cancer) also visited, which was lovely. They were supposed to be staying with us but between the various illnesses we’ve had and the move, it was easier for them to stay with rellies in South Perth. They might come stay for a few days once we’re in the new house.

And I think I’m all about bed now. Been a busy day!

New Ceres Nights LAUNCHED!!


It was most prettiful and good, thanks to the costuming creations of  , catering of  , and the support of some wonderful Swancon people ( and Maia particularly) and  helping set up, and the wonderful readings by  ,  and  (and the babysitting by the totally awesome super dad Matty Chrulew!).

Pictures by   on my pitiful digital, but I’m sure more will be posted soon from the bigger, better cameras of  and  !

Posting comics does not equal LJ updatery…

 And it’s not like nothing has happened this week! Firstly the house debacle – the sellers refused to sign a mutual termination of contract, so I called their bluff and just said, well we’re not buying it. We won’t sign transfer papers. On Friday, the solicitor rang to say they had a signed termination of contract from the seller! Woot! Win! Unfortunately, the other house that I’d asked the owners if they’d be interested in renting to us for six to twelve months was a no too, although the owner said they’d let us know when they got an offer to see if we were interested in counter offering then. We’ll see…

Work’s been busy – have a praccie this week who has been worth his weight in gold, and things are all pretty good right now, although for some reason it feels like I’ve been getting into trouble for doing my job a bit lately! Twice in one week I’ve been chipped by deputies for something that we’ve previously been told to do! Very strange… Anyway, trying not to let it get to me. Four working days til holidays!!

We’ve been over to Rottnest for the first time today. A bit much for the kids with all the walking, but they were okay. If/when we go again, we’ll hire bikes 🙂 Glad to be able to say we’ve been at least. We lived at opposite Fraser Island and never went! And when I lived in Rockhampton in QLD I only went over to Great Keppel once in three years, so at least we’ve managed this one within 18 months 🙂

This week (well, Thursday particularly) saw a couple of hiccups with our local New Ceres Nights printing and Lulu printing options. Yes, BOTH of them, on the same day! Looks like both are resolved now, and we’re a go go for launch on Saturday next week!   has been baking and organising madly, and it’s going to be loads of fun.

I think we’re going to go see Monsters Vs Aliens at the IMAX tomorrow, which should be fun. Am hanging out for holidays though. Desperately. LOTS to do between now and Swancon, so holidays afterwards will be VERY welcome!

NEW CERES NIGHTS presales!

If you are a non-Australian resident (particularly in the US), and you think our New Ceres Nights project sounds like fun, you might be interested to know that the anthology is now available from Lulu! 

http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/new-ceres-nights/6608237

For EVERYBODY, it’s also available in HARDBACK (very pretty and swishy) from:

http://www.lulu.com/content/hardcover-book/new-ceres-nights/6606776

Both those links also have the option to purchase a PDF download (so YOU can be one of the first to read New Ceres Nights, even before it’s officially launched at Swancon at Easter!).

If you’re in Australia, you might prefer to purchase direct from Twelfth Planet Press (and this is definitely the cheaper option for paperback in Australia), and you can visit New Ceres Nights – now preselling to get in early!

Yay! My work here is now DONE!
