Book Signing Event

Posted by on Aug 26, 2019 in Uncategorized | 2 Comments

I’ll be signing copies of ‘Shepherd‘ (or any of my other books) at Chatswood Dymocks on 12 September between 4 pm and 6 pm. Please drop by, even if it’s just for a chat! I’ll be desperate for company.

    Hey Catherine, I really loved your book Evil Genius when I was younger, I wasn’t a huge fan of reading at the time but your book really drew me in and i read it twice back to back after my first time through.

    It really kick-started my love of reading and books as a whole, mostly because it was the first book I read that was targeted towards my audience without being patronizing or oversimplified.

    I really hope this message reaches you as I feel that many people who are deeply affected by someone or their works go without making sure the artist knows. I didn’t even know you were Australian,but that would explain some of the weird names and spellings within your works. I hope you have a good day, Ms.Jinks.

    What a wonderful message, Jacob. Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me the best news an author could ever hear – that I actually GOT SOMEONE INTERESTED IN READING! When I’m told something like that, it makes me feel less like a social parasite (because I think a lot of people believe that writers are a waste of space) and more like a doctor or a teacher – someone who actually contributes something to society. Not as much as a paramedic, perhaps, but at least something.

    It was very kind of you to let me know and I hope you’re still reading. Heaven knows, we need a bit of an escape, these days.
