Australia travel plans (partial)

Posted on July 22, 2010

OK, at long last, I have some tour dates for Australia! This is NOT a final or complete list, but this is the larger part of my public appearances Down Under, so take a look:


Event name: Author talk with Dymocks Sydney
Date: Monday 16th August
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: Dendy Opera Quays Cinema, 9/2 Circular Quay, Sydney
Cost: $20 members of SMH Dymocks Events / Students & Non-Members $22. Talk and signing session

I have no idea what it is I’m supposed to be doing that’s worth $20 to get in. I hope they don’t ask me to pole dance. A NIGHT OF ADVENTURE.

Event name: Signing at Big W Eastgardens
Date: Tuesday 17th August
Time: 4pm
Venue: Big W at Westfield Eastgardens, Level: 2, Store M1, 152 Bunnerong Rd., Eastgardens NSW 2036
Cost: Free

No pole dancing here.


Event name: Author event with Dymocks Albert Street
Date: Wednesday 18th August
Time: 5pm
Venue: Shop D17, 177 Albert Street (Cnr Elizabeth & Albert), Brisbane
Cost: Free

This will be my first day in Brisbane! (They have scheduled me to spend my first day in Sydney — after plane trips that total about 19 hours — just sort of sitting around blinking. Trust me, this is for the best.)

Event name: Public signing at Angus and Robertson Morayfield
Date: Thursday 19th August
Time: 4pm
Venue: Angus and Robertson Morayfield, Shop 62 Morayfield Shopping Centre, Morayfield Road, Morayfield, 4506
Cost: Free

It is my opinion that this venue does not have enough “Morayfield” in its address.


Event name: Author event with Dymocks Melbourne
Date: Friday 20th August
Time: 5pm
Venue: 234 Collins Street

Whoo, Melbourne! I watched a Food Network special about great restaurants in Melbourne, so I plan to essentially eat my way across the city. Look for me to perhaps still have a napkin tucked in my collar.

I’m hoping I’ll be able to add a couple more events, maybe in some places a bit farther afield (though not so far as Perth, I’m afraid — please forgive me!) But that’s all tentative. What you see here is for sure. I am SO looking forward to this and to meeting as many fans as possible!

BTW, I will also have some Illinois events to announce for September before too long, so the signings continue —


Check back at the blog tomorrow for an interview with the fabulous Kelley Armstrong, of THE RECKONING, THE SUMMONING and all kinds of other awesome books. 😀

And have you entered the PERSONAL DEMONS contest yet? If not, what’s stopping you?

    Hi Claudia, well if you want a good restaurant in Melbourne you can’t go past The Rockpool at the Casino Complex. Neil Perry has done himself proud with the Melbourne addition to his chain. And if you find yourself travelling to the Mornington Peninsula on a Sunday you can’t go past fish n chips on the beach!! Cheers!

    Your webpage (Australia travel plans (partial) Claudia's Blog)doesn’t render properly on my iPad – you might wanna try and change that 🙂 Alexandra Mcdaniel
