Enough already! Transported has been published. It will be in bookshops – Whitcoulls, Borders, Unity, Dymocks, Paper Plus, Parsons, and others – shortly, if it isn’t already. You can buy it online from New Zealand Books Abroad (who, despite their name, also sell books within New Zealand) or Fishpond.
I’m going to finish sorting out the running order of JAAM 26 and catch up on housework. Then it will be back to working on my novel, and blogging about what really matters: Buffy Anne Summers, for example.
So, enjoy the silence.
Or not: following a day on which I twice darkened the doors of Radio New Zealand House, I will appearing twice on National Radio on Sunday 8 June! From 10.05 to about 10.30am, I’m taking part in the Sunday Group on Chris Laidlaw’s morning show. We’ll be discussing Peak Oil and the future of world oil supplies.
Then, some time between 2 and 2.30pm (all being well), I will wear another hat, appearing on “The Arts on Sunday” to discuss Transported with Lynn Freeman. Emily Perkins will be on the show as well.
Shortly after these shows, podcasts will be available, and I’ll add links to them here.
UPDATE: A podcast of the Sunday Group discussion hasn’t been made available, but the Transported interview is available in MP3 format (a two-minute excerpt from the book plus a seven-minute discussion).
FURTHER UPDATE: The Sunday Group discussion on Peak Oil and the future of oil supplies is now also available as a podcast in MP3 format (12.5MB, about 35 minutes).
