Further hubby update

Just saw doctor and we’re about to take him home. At least 7-10 days off work, but he’s feeling okay. Hungry and tired mostly! I’m heading back to work for athletics carnival now.

Husband update

He has a hernia. Has been lucky enough to get on an operating list immediately (workers comp doctor rocks!) and we are currently sitting at what must be the poshest hospital inPerth, The Mount, waiting. I brought laptop, iPhone, books and crocheting with me, and may pop down to the shops a bit later too 🙂

Yes, I’m certain he will be fine. It’s going to be a long recovery (for me!) though!!

You never know what you’re gonna get…

So hubby rings yesterday arvo and calmly tells me that a slab of rock slipped off the mine wall the night before and pinned him on the leg. No damage except for muscle strain and grazes from trying to struggle out from under it, going to work tonight. Oh, righto then. Two hours later, another phone call saying they’re flying me back in tomorrow, seems I do have an injury that requires treatment (minor operation). So I’m sitting at the “industrial” airport waiting for him, to take him to the first of what promises to be a few doctor appointments to get him all fixed up.

Later… Didn’t get to post this before. Now sitting in doctor surgery waiting for appointment. Hubby seems okay, but has stiffened up a lot in the two hours or so we’ve been wandering about Cottesloe,
so he’s clearly not as “fine” as he thought he was!

More later.

Some Twelfth Planet Press updates

Horn has been receiving some nice reviews, most recently in Queensland’s Courier Mail yesterday – no online link unfortunately, but we’ll be posting bits and pieces 🙂

New Ceres Nights
has also surfaced in a book blog review over at   – good to see the books out and about!

This past week or so has seen a lot of proofing for Deborah Biancotti’s collection A Book of Endings, launching at Continuum next month – dark and deep and somewhat twisty, with beautiful Biancotti soul.

I’ve also spent a bit of time working on some advertising stuff for Twelfth Planet Press, which is now out it the wild.

And this is the last week of the open reading period for (working title) Spec Fic for Kids – submission guidelines are here: 

If you are really keen to submit but the deadline is looking ominous to you, drop me a line, as I’m a bit flexible for authors I know/have worked with in the past. 

I’m also hitting a stumbling block on the title. Spec Fic for Kids was only intended to be a working title, but now I can’t think of anything else! Suggestions gratefully received!
