Shout Out

Anna Weatherly:

I'd just like to let you know that I included you and the Australian Writers' Centre in my Acknowledgements section of my new novel. This is because I've benefitted from two of your courses (Build your author Platform and 30 day bootcamp), and also much enjoyed your podcast with Valerie. This is what I wrote:

Authors everywhere generously share their perspectives on writing and publishing. There are too many to name, so I will only mention two: Allison Tait of the Australian Writers' Centre, and Bronwyn Parry.

My novel is The Widow's Follower. It's a crime fiction, murder mystery and suspense novel set in Sydney in 1919. If you'd like to see more about the book, my webpage is annaweatherlyauthor.com.au. (It's thanks to you I have a webpage!)

Show Notes
