I've just read this magazine and thoroughly enjoyed it. Congratulations and thank you for giving readers and other writers an insight into the lives of some of our favourite authors.

Magazine is beautiful and a great read

So lovely to finish a hard day servicing both Roobi’s engines and the generator to find Mel Hammond’s post about her on-line magazine for readers and writers. Check out the links below to access the e-zine and to subscribe to Mel’s podcasts! Her support of Australian writers is wonderful!!

Mel Hammond and the team, Writer on the Road conduct podcast interviews with all manner of interesting folk - and I've been included, too. The magazine and the subscription (links below) make absorbing reading. A little glimpse into the sometimes mad life of a writer.
Thanks Team Hammond - you're great supports and great fun! x
