Guest Post and Holidays

Worked like a demon to get the first big edit of the manuscript finished before the end of 2017 – and made it with, at least 48 hours to spare!

Then my family and I went to the beach for a week. No wifi. Bliss.

Then (thanks to my hard working editor) came back to find the first nine chapters of the manuscript ready to copy edit. So that’s what I’ve been doing, instead of blogging. But if you would like to read a little something, try this Guest Post I wrote for Bill over at the The Australian Legend.

Most of you already know Bill – not least because he is a prolific commenter here at Adventures in Biography – but for those who might like an introduction, he’s a blogger who is also a long distance truck driver with an MA in Australian Literature and an interest in Australian women writers.

Over the next weeks, Bill is presenting a series on Australian women writers.

My post starts at the beginning, and is called: Australia’s First Women Writers – a piecemeal and imperfect overview enlivened by a giveaway at the end.

    Thanks again for contributing and 2,000 words is not little! In case you’re wondering, the pictures that were embedded in your Word doc didn’t transfer over to WordPress with the text, so I grabbed one from ever reliable Goodreads with no time to find more.

    Congratulations on getting that edit done. What a time of year to have that hanging over your head.

    Sounds like a week wi-fi free really would have been bliss. Hope you got lots of reading of your choice done – or that you just had a good rest.

    Enjoyed your post too, but have commented over at Bill’s on that.

      December was also a very busy time at work so it’s fair to say that I REALLY needed that holiday!

    Hi Michelle. Just wanted to thank you for the copy of Life Lines I won through The Australian Legend. I can’t wait to delve into it, as I am working on an HF set in rural Victoria and Western Australia mid-1800s. Besides that it’s a fascinating subject no matter the reason.
    Thanks and best wishes for your edits and successful release. Jay.

      Thanks! I love historical fiction, so glad the book will be put to good use.

Leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you...
