Everyone, especially my New Zealand readers — I want to reach out and offer peace this weekend. Every sentence I try to write comes out like a cliche, but please know that the world loves your country.
(Moni, Susan, Frannie, Joan, Amiri…and all the other beautiful Kiwi readers I don’t know personally, we are all thinking of you.)
I don’t know how to continue with what I had planned to tell you this week, but I’m going to try. It’s been a big week, with lots of this — baking for my launch party.
And a lot of this… rushing around!
LOVE LIE REPEAT is out now in Australia and in our beloved New Zealand, and I’ve been signing books before they fly out of shops. Want to see what a book signing looks like, especially if this is YOUR dream for your life? If yes, take a look here.
Bookclubs are reading LOVE LIE REPEAT! Get your free Penguin Book Club notes.
High schools are interested in teaching it! Free excellent Teachers’ Resource Guide is here.
I’ve been baking yummy biscuits and decadent chocolate brownies for the launch party next weekend, and I’m planning a charcuterie board like this one, but massive…
I want you to know this: you can write your book, too. Let my story encourage you. It took two years to get LOVE LIE REPEAT from my laptop into the shops. People are reading it in one sitting — racing through — so we need LOTS of books. There is room for all of us. Me and you.
To party with us next Saturday, 23 March, 7:30pm Sydney time, you can join with Zoom on your laptop. It’s like watching a meeting, live. Just click on the image below OR on this Zoom link https://zoom.us/j/732408698 Check your time zone before you click! Zoom will load automatically, so follow the prompts. I’ll share the replay link next Sunday, too.
Can I say a million, billion THANK YOUs for being on this journey with me?
New Zealand, we’re carrying your heart in our hearts today.
Love, Catherine x
