Going Down Under

I’m very pleased to announce I’ve just sold Australia/New Zealand rights to Daughter of the Sword. Next year I’ll be following the novel Down Under, to do some readings and signings. I’ve wanted to get to Australia for a long, long time, and it’s really wonderful to be able to finance the trip with Aussie royalties!

New Zealand, don’t worry, I’ll get to you as soon as I can. You’ve been calling to me since I was in grade school. I just need to visit Australia first if I’m to meet my goal of reaching all seven continents by age 40. (Everyone other than New Zealand, did you know about the continental fragment of Zealandia? After I visit all seven continents, I will try to set foot on every continental fragment I can reach, starting with a visit to the Kiwis.)

[Edited August 1: I just purchased tickets to Australia! I am very excited about it. Right now the itinerary includes a base camp in Sydney, camping, climbing, and canyoneering in the Blue Mountains, hiking and camping (and dodging kangaroos) around Uluru, a trip up to Katherine for some kayaking, and a jaunt over to Cairns to snorkel and dive on the Great Barrier Reef. Like I said, I am very excited!]
