Flip Side (Thriller)

Well the Melbourne launch of The Ghost Poetry Project was INCREDIBLE! I am so lucky to have celebrated such a big chapter in my life with such friends, peers (and fans!) and in the city's dark heart: Old Melbourne Gaol. WOW! What a ride! The gaol was a spectacular venue and I got to tread the walkways, looking down on my audience as I performed, many of whom have played a major role in my development.

Check out a write up of the night at Angela Meyer's Literary Minded: http://blogs.crikey.com.au/literaryminded/

Check out pics at Sean M Whelan's: http://loveisthenewhate.blogspot.com/

And the night was made extra special by Kevin Brophy who said some very kind things to launch the book. Stay tune for his launch speech in Famous Reporter later on in the year. For now check out a poem of his here:

Now the Sydney launch: Saturday, Sept 5, St Stephens, Newtown 4-6pm.

But before then it's Melbourne Writers Festival time and I'll be doing a couple of gigs this year, including reading some ghost poems at the Festival Club for Wordplay on August 23rd.
