“Goodbye Crackernight” Now Available at Melbourne Airport Bookstores – Newslink, Virgin & Watermark!

27 January 2010

Hi, All!  Yehaa.  “Goodbye Crackernight” is now available at Melbourne Airport bookstores!  That means Watermark  Books and all 3 Newslink stores at the Domestic Terminal, plus Newslink and Virgin Books & Entertainment at the International Terminal.

I’ll be flying down there this Friday 29 January to do book signings and address the store crowds.  In fact, I’ll be there all day from about 8am till 8pm, signing and addressing the masses like a man possessed, though the main event should be at Watermark Books, Domestic.

My huge thanks go out to Angelo Aspropotamatis, Lagardere Area Manager, for his invaluable help in organising this.  Also to Laurena of Newslink at the International Terminal for getting the ball rolling!  And to Troy Manniatakis of Watermark Books for offering to set up a signing table/event, and for his excellent local advice.

These Melbournites certainly are a bunch of helpful and friendly souls.

MY NEW BOOK, “NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN”, NOW PUBLISHED IN PRINT-ON-DEMAND (PAPERBACK) FORMAT AT AMAZON!  RAVE REVIEWS RECEIVED! AND NOW AT DYMOCKS, GEORGE ST SYDNEY, CHATSWOOD, BROADWAY, BONDI JUNCTION, ROUSE HILL, MACQUARIE CENTRE & CAMBERWELL (VIC) STORES. AND IN ALL EBOOK FORMATS.

AND NOW AT GLEEBOOKS, BERKELOUW BOOKS PADDINGTON & THE AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL

    Well Folks, my International Man of Mystery jet-setting excursion of Friday 29 Jan went off well: Rose at 4:30am, coffee and hugs from wife, 5:15 taxi to aiport. 6:30 flight to Melbourne, began my rounds of the Airport bookstores at 8:00am.

    Signing books at all 6 stores in the complex, addressing crowds when they came through, I did this till 7pm. Round and round, round and round, round and round and round – If anyone needs a pedestrian map of Melbourne Airport, I can do you one in my sleep. For the staff of Watermark Books, Virgin Books & Entertainment and all 4 Newslink stores, it must have felt like “Groundhog Day”. Towards the end of it, I, personally, felt like Tom Hanks in the film “Terminal”.

    Yet it did go well, store crowd reaction was really excellent at times, and a lot of copies of “Goodbye Crackernight” sold.

    A massive thanks to all Melbourne Airport bookstore staff involved for their co-operation and patience: Cheers to the following…

    Angelo, Lagardere Area Manager. Troy, Manager of Watermark Books. Raeleigh, Airport Book Manager. Courtney, Christopher and Anton of Watermark Books. Alex and Alice of Newslink Domestic. Karen of Newslink Terminal 3. Josie, Anna and Mel of Newslink, International Terminal. Helen of Virgin Book & Entertainment, for placing copies of the book front & centre at the Virgin counter. But most of all, thanks to Laurena of Newslink, International Terminal, for contacting me on Australia Day and saying, “Your books. They’re here!”

    Tired but happy and with sore feet, at 7:15pm I sat at the counter of the Pendulum Bar, Qantas Domestic, and sipped a beer overlooking Qantas aircraft as they performed their tarmacal ballet under a bright blue evening sky. It was one of those ‘nicest beers I ever tasted’ moments.

    Flight back at 8pm, taxi from Sydney Airport, home by 10. Time for Ice Cream and Monty Python.
