The boy in the yellow dress is officially launched!

The first public launch event for the book was staged Sat. 24th May at the unique Hares & Hyenas Bookshop in Melbourne's alternative Fitzroy, where the energetic Stefanie Petrik arranged this striking window display.
We were fortunate to host the arrival of a traveller from another galaxy, apparently my 'home' star system, who had come to investigate what had happened to my yellow dress!

Next, we travelled north to Byron Bay in New South Wales, where the bookseller sold out of copies of the book!  We were graciously hosted by the Northern Rivers Writers' Centre, which stages the annual Byron Bay Writers' Festival where the boy in the frock will be making an appearance in early August ...
The joint was jam-packed with book lovers!
Obviously, I was please with the attention of the resident throng!
But I was thankfully kept from floating off in clouds of self-admiration by the wise counsel of the Mistress of Ceremonies for the evening, the incomparable Lilith Rocha!
