I write a lot in a lot of places, and travel a bunch to a bunch of places. This is where to find me!

Authors for Fireys

If you’re on social media, you might have noticed the #AuthorsForFireys auctions going on around the country, in order to raise money for volunteer firefighting organisations such as the CFA. I’m offering three items:

1. A signed set of the Valentine trilogy, plus promotional enamel pins (high bid currently $225)

2. Detailed feedback on the first 5000 words of your manuscript, as well as your synopsis, OR, if you’re a PhD student or ECR, feedback on a draft journal article or book chapter (high bid currently $170).

3. I’ll name a cameo character in the ridiculous soap opera book I’m writing after you (high bid currently $260).

If you want to bid, jump on over to Twitter and reply to the original tweet threads, which you can find pinned to my profile. If you’re not on Twitter, slide into my DMs on the social media platform of your choice and make your bid.

The auction closes at 11 January 2020 at 11pm AEST. All proceeds will go to the CFA. If you want more detail, or you want to look at what other authors have up for bid, check out the Authors for Fireys website.

And if you want to listen to me talk about the auction and my items: I did a quick podcast interview with Dark Matter Zine.

Pals! Have you ever wanted to hear my opinions on VC Andrews (of which I think you can guess I have a lot)? Then you’re in luck! I’ll be discussing Flowers in the Attic, My Sweet Audrina, and all of VCA’s, ahem, interesting works with Clem Bastow and Danielle Binks at Readings on Monday February 24, 2020. Details here: Speaking of the Dead – VC Andrews.

The Bachelorette Australia

Obviously I have just as many – if not more? – hot takes on The Bachelorette Australia as I do on The Bachelor Australia. I’m writing recaps as usual over at Book Thingo. Here are some links to all the recaps I’ve written on Season 5, which I’ll update as the season progresses.

More hot takes on pro wrestling

Despite the fact I am deeply uninformed on the subject, people keep soliciting my hot takes on pro wrestling, and I keep them giving to them. I recently appeared on my second wrestling podcast in as many months: have a listen to me chat to Greg on the B Plus Aussie Grapps podcast about my newfound love of Melbourne City Wrestling.
