Leanne's book launch 1

“Last night was a huge success and an extremely memorable event. It was moment, that at times I never thought would happen. Last night, people I recognised and many I had never seen before surrounded me. Some sat while others stood listening to my every word. They were there to attend my first official book launch. I appreciated them all; I answered questions and signed my novel as a smile danced across my face.

Today I am a writer. I sit at my desk. I tap away at my keyboard.

I love what I do, the power to create and shape characters. To set scenes and destroy others. I love being a writer. I appreciate all opinions, support and words of encouragement. My hope is that people will enjoy reading, what I write.

I love what I do; I love being a writer.” ~ Leanne Wood

Attempting to seek understanding and forgiveness she must reveal all however, her body is failing and she fears she is not long for this world.

  1. I know you haven’t done any book signings such as this, and I wonder if you’d be up for doing one? Perhaps even via the historical societies, something with the Tasmanians, any festivals, etc.?

    You are just so knowledgeable and write the most beautiful stories. I think you should share that knowledge and processes if you care to … on the other hand, there are plenty who do not like to do these sort of events (i.e., me no likey book signings, but I don’t mind speaking events).

    • Yes, Janet, I’d certainly be up for a book launch and/or signing, but given what’s gone on in my life over the past twelve months it just hasn’t been possible. Surely next year will be different 🙂
