I am busily reading Sacrifice by Joanna Orwin and will get to my review soon. In the meantime I wanted to tell you about a writing festival being held in Whangarei in September. NorthWrite2012 is being organised by the Northland branch of NZ Authors. The topic is The Business of Writing and we have a full programme planned from illustration to historical fiction to social media for writers. Our presenters include Fifi Colston, David Hill and Deborah Challinor. We are still in the planning stages but places are limited so stay tuned to the NorthWrite website here.
