was a blast.

It was great meeting Krissy Kneen. Kim and Josie were utterly entertaining speakers (Kim Wilkins always is*!). And Kate's wonderful (thank you, Kate).

Then there was Terry Whidbourne's sublime artwork, check out his webpage at for just hint of the very cool stuff he is doing. I 'm dying to see more of Queen Bee, and the Edwardian graphic novel he's working on sounded fantastic. He's a very talented artist and I reckon we'll only be seeing more of his artwork in the future.

All in all an excellent night at an excellent bookstore.

*I'm sure the same goes for Josie Montano, too.

Hi Trent,

D'oh! I had planned on getting to that Wordpool as it was a week of sans teen ("not Another Writing Thing") & completely lost track of the dates. I blame sleep deprivation & crazy-busy work!

Glad it went off well. I'm sure it would've been a blast!

Hey Nicky,

Not a problem - I've missed so many of these myself.

It was a lot of fun, and it's certainly reminded me why I should be going to more of these. They're well worth supporting - not least because they're so entertaining.
