Guess who’s in the Australian Women’s Weekly…

My phone started going mad this morning with texts from friends telling me about my, and fellow authors Rachael Treasure, Nicole Alexander and Fleur McDonald’s, LUST IN THE DUST spread in the newly-minted March issue of the Australian Women’s Weekly. I knew it was coming. After all, I’d had a ball doing the photo ???????????????????????????????shoot (thanks, Katie and Alana) and the interview (thanks, Kerry), but it still came as a bit of a shock because I wasn’t expecting the magazine to hit the stands until later in the week.

As thrilling as the AWW’s release is, I have lots of chores to catch up on before this weekend’s Australian Romance Readers Convention in Brisbane, not to mention a book to write, so I decided to spend the morning working and ignoring it all. Yeah, like that was going to happen. By 11-15am, after what felt like a hundred text messages, emails and phone calls, I couldn’t stand it and had to head out to buy my own copy.

Actually, I bought two. Cos, you know, I might wear the first one out or something.

So here I am, in the Australian Women’s Weekly, looking, according to my girlfriend’s husband, a bit Mona Lisa. Hmm, not sure if that’s good or bad but I wouldn’t mind Mona’s popularity!


By the way, in case you’re wondering about all this lusty fantasy, I LOVE my darling other half, Jim.

I just tend to get a bit obsessed by my fictional heroes…

    Cathryn, that is so cool! Congrats on the fantastic publicity and making it into an iconic Australian magazine. I’m going to have to get me a copy of the WW. And your book! 🙂

      They’re almost boudoir-like, aren’t they, Louise? Verra hot and sexy! Definitely hot. It was a stinker of a day to be standing in an old tin shed. Not that I minded a scrap.

    Working on a day like today, Mona? Why not celebrate instead? Seriously, a great spread in AWW. Congratulations!

      Thanks, Juanita. Amazing how you can’t see how much I’m sweating. It must have been about 40 degrees in that shed and 90% humidity. Have to say I LOVE getting my makeup and hair done. Makes me feel like a princess. So very different to my usual slop about writing look.

      The interviews with Nicole, Fleur and Rachael are fun too, Alissa. Plus there’s a fantastic review of lovely Aussie author Jenn J McLeod’s new release, House For All Seasons, in the book section too. The Dymocks people are raving about it. So, so pleased for Jenn.

      Great title, isn’t it, Carla? Although I’m not sure it’s an entirely accurate promo for all the featured authors but I guess it sells magazines. Not that I’m complaining. Nope, not even a teensy bit. I’m just thrilled to be included.

      Thanks so much for dropping by. Great to see you here.
