Hi Suburban Soldiers, Facebook mates and stray web-browsers looking for stuff on the pugnacious opening left-hander and getting my blog instead. A few live appearances and shows have been locked into place recently. Hopefully I might see you at one of more of these.
First off, next Thursday July 30 at Berkelouw Leichhardt, Sydney 6-8 PM I’ll be joining Stuart Coupe, author of the soon to be published bio on Australia’s most interesting entertainment entrepreneur, Michael Gudinski. Stuart and will talk rock’n’roll, crime (sometimes the two aren’t far apart), and the chances of the Sydney Swans in 2015. I’ll be more than happy to sign any of my books or cds including the recently published Before It Breaks.
Then Sat 5 September I’m honoured to have been invited to the BRISBANE WRITERS FESTIVAL where I will be involved in panels in the morning and afternoon. I know Scott Schilling will be trying to make it and hope a few other readers will come say hello.
Lunchtime (approx 12:1.30) Wed September 16 I am doing an author talk at Customs House Library near Circular Quay in Sydney. Entry is free. Tony Durant is going to play some acoustic guitar and I’ll talk about crime writing and my new novel, sing a couple of songs and perform an epic poem or two.
OCTOBER 22-24 (Thurs through Sat) I’ll be doing my acoustic style show at DOWNSTAIRS HIS MAJESTY’S THEATRE. Tony Durant and Phil Bailey will join me in loads of songs but I will also do readings from various pieces of mine and some comic sketches with the amazing Damien O’Doherty. This will be a wonderful intimate show with the opportunity to have a meal while we entertain you. Don’t leave it too late to book, capacity is limited.
THU OCTOBER 29 I am back in Sydney doing pretty much the same show at the Django Bar in Marrickville although I doubt Damien and Phil will make it over for that, however Bill Beare and Lloyd Gyi may do me the honour. Those who came along last time will know what a fabulous night it turned out to be and I hope to see many of you there again.
