Things have been so hectic recently that I neglected to post about the shortlisting of Portable Curiosities for two awards: the Readings Prize for New Australian Fiction 2016 and the Queensland Literary Awards – Australian Short Story Collection – Steele Rudd Award 2016. I’m honoured to be on both shortlists, especially in such amazing company.
I’m launching this wonderful book tomorrow at Gleebooks. 3.30 for 4pm. Editor Laurie Steed will be there, and there will be readings from Jo Riccioni and Catherine Moffat. Everyone welcome! Details here.
