Well, we’re back

By skepticlawyer

Many moons ago, Katy Barnett (Legal Eagle), Lorenzo M Warby (Lorenzo), and I (skepticlawyer, aka Helen Dale) ran quite a popular blog from this site. Apart from Lorenzo’s sterling efforts, the blog has fallen by the wayside, and we kind of forgot its Facebook ‘fan’ page existed.

However, since all three of us have got books either published or being published, we’ve decided to repurpose the Facebook page and reanimate the blog as quasi author page and general sandpit for the three of us and those who like to read our stuff.

By way of background, my first novel – the one the won the Miles Franklin and caused a massive stink at the time – has been re-issued, while my second novel (in two parts) will be published in October this year. I’ll be doing an Australian author tour to support it. I’m so keen for you to read it I’ve even volunteered to go on Q&A. Yes really.

I’ve had quite a bit of stuff published around the reissue – you can read all about it in The AustralianThe Sydney Morning HeraldThe Daily TelegraphQuillette or you can have a listen to this interview on ABC Radio.

Katy and Lorenzo have books coming out next year. They’ll make announcements here and on the Facebook page in due course.

Because my publisher (Ligature) does the most gorgeous cover art, I’ve decided to put the cover design up for Kingdom of the Wicked, my second novel, to illustrate this post.

    An unexpected (but well deserved!) bonus for my continuing loyalty to wake up to this morning. I wish all three of you well in your endeavours.

    I know what it’s like to neglect one’s blogosphere duties. Welcome back.

    Many thanks everyone; it seems other people remembered the blog was here even if I’d forgotten.
