BOOK EVENT - WILL KOSTAKIS - THE FIRST THIRD - PENGUIN - YA CONTEMPORARY -BRISBANE - MANLY 2013


Today I had the pleasure of meeting Australian author Will Kostakis,  the author of the brilliant YA contemporary , The First Third. 

TLC boutique book store in Manly , Queensland held the event for the QLD release of his book.




Hubs and 'mini me' ( daughter ) came for the drive down and we only made one driving mistake, got there with time to spare.

Manly is a gorgeous place. I was only familiar with Manly in Sydney. Manly , Brisbane with its yacht club/mariner was a pleasant surprise. It has a great vibe.




I am kicking myself for not videoing Will's humorous talk, which included his getting famous, Yiayia. 

A very nice guy who also signed some prints for me so I can hold an international giveaway for all of you.




I got my book signed and grabbed a sanga and then headed off out into the glorious sunshine. It is a beautiful day. 




I love Aussie movies like, The Castle, Crackerjack, Red Dog, Rabbit Proof Fence, the ever frightening Wolf Creek. I personally think this is a book just waiting to be snapped up and made into an Aussie movie.

Heart and soul , people!
