review from 1girl2manybooks
A very kind and lovely review from 1girl2manybooks.
It’s been a scary/exciting/nauseating two weeks knowing that the book is out in the world now and that [shock horror!] people may actually be reading it. But reviews like this make all the late night cheese-eating seem worth it.
review from Readings
The first review of The Book of Ordinary People!
‘…a heart-warming and thought-provoking novel’ – lovely words from Sharon Peterson at Readings St Kilda.
the launch of the book of ordinary people
I’ll be launching The Book of Ordinary People on Sunday August 19, 3pm-5pm at Neighbourhood Books in Northcote.
Catering by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, sparkling on arrival, an uncomfortable and panicked speech from me… what’s not to like?

a preview of The Book of Ordinary People
In news both exciting and nauseating*, you can check out the first 20 pages of The Book of Ordinary People at the link below. Publication day draws ever nigh and you’re most welcome to pre order here for paper books and here for ebooks. [Presses ‘post’ and runs off to hide under bed for the next few months].
*for me. Hopefully not for you.
Exciting news! The Book of Ordinary People will hit shelves on July 31 this year!
