A Response to “Goodbye Crackernight”

2 March 2010

Justin (Grateful) Sheedy

I’ve just received the following response to my new book, Goodbye Crackernight.  It came via Facebook, from one Lisa Elias of Sydney.  In a publishing world where any first-time author is advised, “You have less chance of getting your book published than juggling soot, and even if it is, it will most likely disappear without trace,” Lisa’s verdict on the book is, as you’ll gather, a welcome one…

Hi Justin
I just loved the book. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I didn’t even need the accompanying images, soundtrack, scents or tastes from the era to enhance the experience as you brought them all to life through your writing. So many good memories, smiles and so much to relate to… Thanks for sharing and for such an enjoyable read!

Lisa concludes in a follow-up message…

I really just related to so much of what you wrote: the era, the area and the ethos… Aaggh, the Carlingford Roller Rink!

A sincere thanks to you, Lisa

    Cheers to you, Cate! And yes, that certainly was the kind of response to the book that makes it all worth it.

    Bloggers take note: Cate is an author and artist with a new book out entitled “Freemantle: City of Colour”. It’s doing really well, getting great responses and no wonder… Beautiful paintings by Cate, photos, and historical insight. All capturing the essence of an amazing city in its many extremes of mood, of light and dark. …See the link!
