One of my hats is as a proofreader. In the past this has been restricted to the corporate world (in-house magazines, school yearbooks, property brochures etc), but over the last few months I have been having a wonderful time proofreading two novels.
First of all, Bud Higgins's first novel AFRICAN EULOGY - what a privilege it was to be involved in this wonderful story that spans South Africa and Australia, and is dedicated to Bud's son. The other book, Ann Rickard's sixth novel, is called THREE IN A BED IN THE MED - lots of laughs amidst the beauty of France, Italy and Greece.
Both novels were launched in great style in Noosa (Queensland) last week so hunt them down in your local bookstore.

Sometimes you just have to walk down the other side of the street - who knows what you'll see and learn, who you'll meet or happen upon. I don't usually take this kind of image (lack of a macro lens for a start, damn it!), but saw it, took it, liked it. And really, how more Aussie can you get than a fly on a barbed wire fence with a bit o' hay wisping in the wind. Feels good to try something different.
