Ah, how much love do we have for Detective Dave Burrows? Well, I for one, have a lot! And obviously you guys do too, because we’re here publishing the 5th in the Detective Dave Burrows series in nine weeks, this baby is going to be on the shelf.
I have to say, I thought the cover looked at bit like a Fifty Shades of Grey when I saw it, but as I’ve said before, we are all going to have different thoughts on what Dave looks like, so we made a conscious decision not to ever show his face. So instead we have lots of lovely groin, arm and leg shots! (I’m a sucker for gorgeous arms!).
Now I’ve got so many stories and photos to show you about this book. I took the plunge last year and bought myself a little camper trailer. It’s a gorgeous thing; comfortable easy to tow, easy to set up and I can do it by myself. (#travelsolo) And of course if you decide to buy something like this, you need to use it, so I headed up north (in WA) and went for a bit of a run around. So much of the country and stories I’ve heard have ended up in Rising Dust.
I grew up camping – swags and campfires. I’ve got a bit too old and have a very crappy bad back to sleep in swags anymore, which is why I got the camper – I need to name her. Any ideas?
Last year was one of the best wildflower seasons WA has seen, ever and even though I was about three weeks too early to see the best of them, I certainly got a a look at how beautiful they could be.
So stay tuned over the next nine weeks and I’ll be sharing stories and photos from across the Mid West, Murchison and Gascoyne areas; you’ll get your own personal guide to the story inside Rising Dust!
I’ll be doing another trip this year – I find writing so easy when I’m out in the middle of the bush and there’s no distractions like house work and washing. I’m hoping (depending on the borders) that I’ll be heading to SA and the NT and coming back down through WA. I also have a date to go down in a shark cage and guess what? That’ll end up in a book too! And if I can’t get interstate, three’s still so much of WA to see. You can follow my Instagram page if you want to see my travels.
