12 February 2010

(This event helped get me onto the program of the Byron Bay Writers Festival 2010: Its Director came into the store, sat down with me and asked (and I quote), “What are you doing first week of August?”)  Read on…

Hi, All!  As you’ll gather from the above, I’m lucky enough to be having an in-store event for Goodbye Crackernight at Mary Ryan’s Books, Byron Bay, from 10am Friday and Saturday 19 & 20th of March.  (Woo-hoo.) Mary Ryan’s Books is the main bookstore in Byron Bay and I’ll be privileged to be there, signing books, talking all about Goodbye Crackernight to store customers, legions of screaming fans, fainting girls, swooning mothers, grown men weeping – you get the picture.  …In essence, bashing their ears until they each buy a book – any, ANY excuse just to get the hell back out of there and into the street.

Mary Ryan’s Books is located at 21-25 Fletcher Street, Byron Bay, right in the centre of things. If you have any enquiries re the event, don’t hesitate to call store manager, Ben, on (02) 6685 8183 or email to byronbay@maryryan.com.au

Thanks hugely to Ben & Kylie and to all at Mary Ryan’s Books for putting on this event.

Saturday 20th, Day 2: Went off well!  Did a few readings to store customers – good reaction there, (one  customer bought 5 copies!), sold  & signed plenty of books, some really nice talks with people about it and the era covered, store management happy, things in the pipeline.  Once again my thanks to all at Mary Ryan’s Books.  …Yet what of the ‘mystery’ Writers’ Festival Director?
