A knock at the door. Australia Post with a delivery…a box of 6 copies of Star of Anise for me. Seven years after writing the story…six years after signing a contract with NLA.
Still love the feel and smell of a new book and the crisp clean pages as you turn them.
Would love to launch it at the Adelaide Gurdwara some time. Will have to get down there and show them the book and do some negotiations.
As for now, will just enjoy sharing it with family and friends.
Thanks Di Wu for the gorgeous illustrations and Susan Hall and Irma Gold and the team at NLA.
