The book launch was a cracker of an afternoon, befitting my main man, PI Harry Kenmare: the wine and whiskey were flowing and we were surrounded by naked ladies (well, on the walls, anyway!)
It was a sold-out event, within the COVID restrictions, and everyone got into the spirit. Literally, in some cases, if the amount of single malt Scotch showing up on the bill was any indication!
Well, as Harry would say, here for a good time, not a long time.
I even earned a new sobriquet: "The bad boy of Australian crime fiction". Yep, I'll wear that one with pride!
Dr Allan Yates was, once again, a superb MC for the afternoon, and we had some great discussion and audience questions. Lots of books went home with people, including quite a number of the earlier novels.
My huge thanks to my partner, Ruth, for managing the whole event, to Allan for his MC efforts, and to Zelman and Dan, the owners of the glorious Glebe Hotel, for hosting us. The upstairs Nude Bar, overflowing with erotic artworks, is Harry's perfect launch pad! (As you can see from the photo below).
And we had the raffle of bundles of my three favourite anthology magazines, so five lucky people now have copies of Switchblade, Econoclash Review, and Pulp Modern to expand their reading repertoire!
The event (at least myself and Allan) was filmed, so you can watch the whole launch via the YouTube link. It's about 90 minutes, and it's fun.
Meantime, feel free to get yourself some Harry! You can contact me for an original paperback, or there's Amazon, amongst others.
Bringing you hard-boiled and noir tales of crime and corruption. And various related opinions!
