So about 7 weeks ago, the first anniversary of the beginning of marriage equality in Australia whooshed by. Seeing as Australian society hasn’t actually imploded, you may not have even noticed it. Some very clever people, driven by Quinn Eades and Son Vivienne, put together Going Postal, an anthology of writing by clever people about marriage equality written during the shitty marriage equality campaign. They made an actual book out of the collection too! My very first The Roxy Epoch blog post was selected to be included in the book. As you could imagine, I was super stoked by this. My piece is on pages 74 to 76 inclusive. The collection is 265 pages long, not including introductions. I was all set to promote the shit out of the book’s publication locally, but I unfortunately had an anxiety attack that persisted for weeks, so I kinda hardly left the house if my livelihood didn’t depend on it.
Using the time honoured Better Late Than Never Approach, seeing as my emotions now seem to be all settled down, well … as settled down as they will get seeing as I am driven by oestrogen these days, here is the official website for the book.
It’s got a blurb about the book. It’s got some cool Instagram posts of the book in various poses in various places with various people. It’s got the bios of the editors. It’s got a list of the writers. It’s got a picture slideshow of the writers, including yours truly. It’s got a list of the book launches that I missed out on, but lots of other people went to. Best of all, it’s got various links where you can buy either the physical book that someone can then conveniently bring to your door, or worst case scenario put one of those “attempted delivery” slips in your letter box, plus it’s also got links where you can buy FOUR different types of electronic versions of the book if that is your thing! Please buy a copy for yourself and a copy for all of your friends and relatives.
