‘I’m leaving, on a jet plane…!’
Today I’m packing up my old RM boots and my new bag and I’m heading to Sydney!
I feel like I’m saying ‘I’m going to Paris’ or some other exotic location, when I say I’m off to Sydney, because I haven’t been there since I was about seven! So to say I’m excited isn’t a slight exaggeration!
I’m not only excited, I’m nervous, shaky, feel sick, have butterflies and ever other possible emotion. You see, tomorrow I get to meet my whole Allen and Unwin team, plus my agent and my amazing web guru, Nyssa. These people are the ones who have made my debut into the publishing world so easy and wonderful.
I’m also going up to the Snowy Mountains, a place I’ve dreamed of going ever since I saw the movie ‘The Man from Snowy River’ (I still have heart palpations over Tom Burlinson!) and I get to meet some of you who have made Red Dust and Blue Skies the success that they’ve been. I can’t wait for that!
So, my three days in NSW are going to be filled with wonderful, although nerve-wracking experiences.
Catch you all, when I get back!
