Drive-by Supanova Post

Here I am, back from Supanova and I want to say a big thank you to the team of volunteers. First of all sending hugs to  the Superwomen of Supanova. Missy, Felicity, Nicole and Skye!

Marianne and I at the Dymocks Table

A big thank you to Sandra, Ineke and Claire who ‘womaned’ the Dymocks store.  And while I’m at it, I must say how great it was to catch up with fellow authors, Trent Jamieson, Jennifer Fallon, Trudi Canavan, Isobelle Carmody, Marianne de Pierres and Robin Hobb. Always a pleasure to spend time with!

The costumes are absolutely amazing. So much effort and the tone of the event is so friendly. At one point a huge conga line passed by with everyone dancing and laughing.

A big hello to Caroline and the team who put together the costumes from NINE. Thank you for the cute little No: 5 I was given.

Had so much fun catching up with readers, watching costumes and chatting to friends!

    My dad asked you if your books were suitable for a 13 yr old and you wrote in the cover of ‘The kings bastard’ “To Meaghan, i hope you enjoy Piro”. I have shown it to all of my friends and just today finished reading the kings bastard. I have loved every page and thrived on your exhilarating ideas and concepts. At first i thought it was hard to understand (affinity, still not sure?) but once i stuck to it raced through. I’m really glad my dad bought me all the books because now i can just continue like a speeding bullet. Thank you so much for the door to a new world that i love. I really do like Piro but my favorite character is Fyn.

    • Hi Meaghan,

      So glad you enjoyed The King’s Bastard! I thought you’d like Piro because she was your age. But Fyn is a special person, too. It’s hard being a sensitive male in any society, let alone a feudal society.

      Affinity – to me it is having an affinity with power, so they can sense it and manipulate it. It’s another wya of saying magic, without using a word that gets over used.

      Thanks for commenting. It made my day!

        Thank you, as well. Now reading the second book, very fast paced, glad i now know the ‘definition’ of affinity.
