1760km To Give a 1hour Author Talk
Commitment? Passion? It has to be those emotions that drove me to drive 10 hours each way to stand before twenty-one people to share stories from my memoir Conquering Clouds.
Appreciation too! That 21folk came out in blistering rain and cold to sit to listen to my talk.
In these later years of my life I am subjecting myself to trying to understand the world of publishing. It is far more complex than my aerial world I have loved for 47 years.
Last week I was in Bryon Bay. I once lived there. 1989 – 1992 when the town was more like a village. I struggled to find the area’s essence from all those years ago when I believed this would be my forever place.
I visited the local bookstore – over completely overcome with emotion at the thousands of books on show – each one belonging to an author somewhere. I walked away wondering HOW I could alert readers that Conquering Clouds was WAITING for their read?
Finally, I accepted I had to TRUST. Trust that anyone who read my story would encourage others to buy and read, to share.
