Australia Stuff and Things; and a Rainy Day

It was raining like crazy today in Cambridge. Rain dripping from all the flowering trees. A perfect day to walk to my friend Titus's house and just hang.

Titus can't open the door by himself, but luckily, his butler was there to let me in. Titus is a problem solver (you can probably tell that by looking at him). As we hung out, my problems disappeared into the ether.

So, a while back, I mentioned that I'm going to be in Australia in May. I now have events, dates, and locations!

We look at how to navigate the business of becoming a global success, and whether it’s more lucrative to sell to international or local markets. With Kathy Charles, Luke Devenish, Chris Morphew and me, hosted by Jacqui Dent. I will be speaking from the perspective of a non-Aussie writer, of course. :o). Presentations, panel discussion, and audience Q&A.

I'll let you all know if there are any updates or changes!

I could be on a panel. I have thoughts.
