Recent media for the Long Weekend

8 Oct

Since publishing The Long Weekend in Alice Springs in March of this year – the first printrun sold out … quite quickly … I admit that I was a little stunned by how quick it happened. I felt a little silly for having only printed 500 copies … but then I thought, well why do I feel silly – how could I have known??!! It’s now in its second printrun and the book is now in over 20 bookstores across Australia, which is great!!

You can also snaffle your copy from Sankessto Publications for $35-

There is also an upcoming booktour in Sydney, Hobart and Adelaide – check out the poster for details.
