Hard to believe it, but The Summer King was officially launched one year ago today. I still can’t quite get my head around it. It feels much longer. And much shorter. And all good! I’ve done a number of readings; oodles of interviews; won a second award (thank you Australia!); missed out on a third (nooooooo!); been booked for my first Overseas Literary Festival (the WA Spring Poetry Festival in Perth – more on that soon); been passed over for my Local Literary Festival (who do I have to sleep with to get that gig‽); and been reviewed four times, all very positive.
All in all, it’s been one hell of a year. Thank you to everyone who’s offered encouragement along the way.
