It is more usual on the last day of the year to look backwards, and contemplate the year past.
I am not going to do that. I want to look forward.
To all the good things ahead.
January: Another chance to win an Aurealis Best Fantasy Novel in the coming month. (Ok, I am not really expecting that one, but well, it’s nice to have a chance. And if I don’t, Jenny Fallon might, and that’s almost as good…)
February: French version of The Aware out – my first trade paperback, from J’ai Lu. It’s called La Clairvoyante.
March: Being a guest at a sff con. First time, and in my home city. Swancon/Australian Natcon, Easter. Perth. Be there. Seeing all my Oz friends/family. And a bit of down time with Karen Miller beforehand. Nice.
March-April: Wandering off with my sister around the wild southern coast of Australia, camping out under the stars … ah. That’s food for the soul.
May 1st: Song of the Shiver Barrens out in the UK.
August: Worldcon, Denver, USA. My first US con. Sharing a room with pal Donna. First time in Colarado. Yay on all counts.
August, or maybe July. Or sometime in 2008 anyway. A very special wedding of someone close to my heart. Maybe in Hawaii.
August-September: Looking after gorgeous grandson over in Virginia.
The rest of the year is still up for grabs…but I reckon it’s looking pretty good from here.
How about you all?
Anyway, Happy 2008!!!!
