AUDIOBOOK of 'A Drop In The Ocean' Out!

Out today, the audiobook of 'A Drop in the Ocean'. It is fabulous; Cat Gould, the narrator, turns it into a whole new experience! If you love audiobooks or know people who do and haven't read the book, please do let them know. It is available through Audible on Amazon as well as Tantor Audio (who produced it) and Google Play and presumably all the other book and audiobook online retailers.

Festivals and the love of books

Nicky Pellegrino and Jenni Ogden in conversation at the Waiheke Literary Festival, November, 2015.


Writers and Readers festivals are pure bliss for those of us who love books. I have been to many throughout the world; in fact if we are traveling anywhere I check out book festivals (and music and wine and food festivals) in case by tweaking our dates we can go to more. I think it is the buzz of being in the midst of so many others who love the same things as you do. But NZ hosts festivals every bit as wonderful as overseas festivals. I particularly love the Auckland Writers Festival, which is massive but incredibly well-organised and very friendly. World-class writers (including world class NZ and Australian writers) are guest speakers, and this year they sold over 63,000 tickets to events. WOMAD NZ in the beautiful New Plymouth is a wonderful weekend of music from many countries in a fabulous atmosphere and held in an incredible venue.  Read More
