a wednesday nite treat

Writers in townsville was awash with authors last Wednesday as we played supper hosts to Ann Jones and David Reiter.

Ann and David gave an all day workshop at the libary and then were invited to Wits for a light supper and informal chat.

What a delight these two unassuming authors were at the meeting.

We were fortunate to be able to grill them on their methods, the latest in publishing, the how to, the what if and any other questions which popped into our collective heads.

Ann had written a memoir called Put the billy on and several of our bretheren paid for copies and had them signed by Ann. Her reading was a rounding sucess and gave us the wind of inspiration.

David is well into publishing having set up his own company IP (Interactive press) David talked of the need to, the necessary things, the next big thing, and much more. His newly published book Primary instincts is a romp into the world of the primary school teacher and his short reading was a taste of the cynical humour in the volume.

Thank you Ann and David. I'm sure Wits will follow your rise in the Literary Circles with interest.
