Lots of Book News

I'm still busy doing a lot of writing and trying to catch up with admin work. Gosh I didn't really know how much admin was slipping through my fingers until Fundi came to help me. She's a friend of a friend.

Anyhoo, she has followed up with most of the people I hadn't spoken to in a while, and a lot of it looks like it will bring in new work. You might remember that I did a survey last year on "Reluctant Readers" for a client. Well, it looks like that project is still on the table. I'm also applying for a grant from ANFASA. If you have a non-fiction project, check out their website and download the application forms.

Deadline to submit application is the 1st October 2010. The Centre for the Book also tells me that they will soon be open for applications for the Community Publishing Project at the end of the month.

Watch that space! And if you have a fiction project, why dont you apply so that you can have some resources to see your project through. They support fiction and poetry projects.

I want to congratulate Rayne Auster for the launch of her latest book "Tapestry of Love," published by Dreamspinner Press.

Lastly, my conversations online continue. On OneLove we are talking about "How to keep your partner happy, even when you have been together for a long time." Many of you are married or in long term relationships. So I'm sure you have a lot of tips you could share with my readers. Please pop in to have a say.

On the Shukumisa Facebook page, we're talking about whether an educated woman is more or less likely to be involved in a violent sexual relationship. You can also take the time to listen to an audio tape on the subject.

That's it for now.

Have a great weekend.
