Now that's what I call a Supanova! Back home after a 23 hour flight, and now falling asleep in the early evening which the kids find hilarious. I had an amazing time -from the big fun Aussie authors that I hung out with, and the awesome welcome I got from all my readers, to my long suffering publicist, Alex, who is now an expert on every smartphone camera in existence (just how many selfies with me are out there now?). The Sydney evening event overran by an hour because the queue for signing was so long! Thank you all so much for making me feel welcome. I promise it won't be 16 (yes really!, my last book tour down under was in 1999) years until I'm back out there again. Biggest thanks of all goes to Daniel and Ineke from Supanova who invited me out there, and looked after me so well. So if you ever get the opportunity to go to a Supanova: just say yes. Its where you can meet the very best people.

Me on the BIG screen. Panel event this afternoon at Gold Coast Supanova Pop Culture Expo Last day in Australia tomorrow (Sunday) and I'll be at the convention on the author signing table (next to the stall with the really sharp swords) so if you want your books signed that's your final chance for a while. Hopefully I'll see some of you there.

It just keeps getting worse. View I suffered from hotel window this morning just before I left (they let me have a break between conventions). Fortunately I've now arrived at Gold Coast. See you at Supernova tomorrow!

For some reason I seem to be really enjoying the breakfasts here in Australia.

Yay, made it to Melbourne. My body clock has no idea what time it is, but I'm enjoying a sunny morning walking about in the city centre. Supernova starts tomorrow. See some of you there.

Packing for Australia. The newest gadget coming with me. Logitech keyboard for my iPad, so I can write while I'm travelling. This arrangement is easier to carry half way around the world than a MacBook. So far so good, but I've only had it a day.
Reminder that I'm at the Melbourne Supernova next weekend April 10-12, then Kinokuniya bookshop Sydney 13th April, finishing up at Gold Coast Supernova April 17 - 19.

More shiny things coming this way. Paperback of The Secret Throne, which used to be called The Queen of Dreams when it was a hardback with a different publisher (don't ask!). Due out 30th July. At least now the trilogy is back on track for one-per-year publication. The foil is actually a uniform sharp-blue, that shading effect on the photo is just due to the way the light catches it. Kinda groovy really.

Some people (such as "Dave" in the guestbook) noticed that Pandora's star was pulled from Audible, and wondered why this happened. It turns out that there have been some complaints about the sound quality of that recording. For that reason, the book was temporarily removed from the Audible store until the engineers have fixed this.
