On The 14th December 2013 I ventured up North to TJ Hamilton's book signing in Hervey Bay for her Thyme Trilogy. 

A most awesome day.

I also met up with Jodie Obrien from Fab Fun And Tantalizing Reads. It was lovely catching up face to face with the girls and we did manage to bring books into the conversation. 

Shocking, I know!

We made a bit of a day of it with our families in tow and followed the signing at Mary Ryan's book store with a scrumptious lunch at Coast, on the esplanade. I can understand why this restaurant has won awards. 

Beautiful food. 

TJ's hubby was unable to attend but he made an appearance via a very nice bottle of Vintage 2008 champagne. He had us girls going 'awwwwwwwwwww.' 

Clinkies as we stare into each others eyes. LOL! 

My husband was enjoying chatting with TJ's little baby as she drew a Picasso drawing and the food just kept coming. Very communal. You share it all. I was in food heaven. There was a lot of technology down one end of the table with all our kids. They were very quiet.

A most awesome day had by myself. I got myself some signed books. If you haven't picked up TJ's Thyme Trilogy yet, I highly recommend it. I thought book # 2, Making Thyme especially was a very 3D experience. I will say no more. 

Keeping Thyme # 3 is releasing in 2014 and the companion novella will be releasing in 2014 titled - You Can Call Me Miranda.

My review for Buying Thyme # 1 is HERE for mature aged readers. TJ puts a lot of research into her writing and it shows. This is an author to look out for. 

The kids went back for a swim afterwards at Jodie's resort she was staying overnight at which was nice and relaxing. Couple more drinkies later and I was ready for a nanna nap, lol! 

A wonderful day , thanks girls got to do it again sometime.
