Come to the book launch. Yes, you!

Hi, ho! I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front. Apart from the #caravanryn travel updates of course. Wanna know why? Because I’m planning a book launch. I’ve never done one of these before and it turns out there’s lots of itty bitty logistical things one must throw energy at. One such thing is inviting people to attend. Which I’ve done. But I have thus far failed to cordially invite YOU, my faithful blog subscribers. So here is your official invite. And I know many of you are from far-flung places and aren’t exactly going to hop on a plane for the occasion, but it’s nice to be invited, right?

Winner: Young Australian Christian Writer Award 2012

I want to share with you a recent and rather exciting achievement. On Thursday evening in Melbourne, my unpublished manuscript with the same title as this blog (a compilation of columns) won me the 2012 Young Australian Christian Writer award. It was a beautifully choreographed evening and prior to announcing each winner, an excerpt of the successful piece of writing was performed or spoken. Rather strange to hear your own words being enunciated from the stage by a stranger! This is what the judges said about Faith Like A Mushroom: This collection of thoughts serves as a companion on the path to Christian maturity. The writing is inquiring and philosophical, but above all practical. The writer’s voice is strong and her impressive breadth of historical and cultural engagement is put to good use. This is a book for young adults who want to make their faith more than just a set of inert beliefs locked safely away in their hearts. It calls us to understand the Christian faith as a worldview seeking action and transformation. …
