Most enjoyable spending time with students from Mt Lawley High School last week and from Christ Church Grammar a little longer ago to share thoughts and ideas about writing, inspirations for Into the Sea, discuss the novel's storyline and more subtle themes, travel and general living. The abundance of questions and enthusiasm for the novel will be very memorable.

We're in Byron Bay! It's been a little while. Love it over here.

Excited to be heading along to the BB Surf Festival from the 25th to 27th Oct and talking a little about Into the Sea

Here's a surf report for today: small waves on the beaches, clean first thing this morning, wind in a bit now (but light by WA standards!). Dramatic tide changes. Water - beautiful.

Ootong & Lincoln is a great cafe in Fremantle (258 South Tce) & so are the people there! We're heading down at 10am on Sat 31 Aug (day before Father's Day) to hang out. Come along and say Gday. Jay will be happy to talk writing, the ocean, anything and sign copies of Into the Sea for anyone in the zone!

Into the Sea's lovely publicist, Phoebe, has just finished a whirlwind tour of Sydney's beaches, meeting many fantastic people and stores all the way from Maroubra and Bondi to the south of Sydney to Manly, Dee Why and Palm Beach in the north. Spreading its wings from its roots in Western Australia, the novel can now be found at many cool seaside shops on the Sydney coast as well as in a small number of places so far in South Australia, Victoria and Queensland (all listed on the website as well as online retailers). We will keep going to make it available at as many other suitable stores all over the place as possible.

Also here is ABC South West's radio interview with Jay!

We are looking forward to seeing great surfers from WA make the most from Trigg Point's waves this weekend for the King of the Point Competition. Sunday is shaping up to be a good day in the water! We'll be there with novel Into the Sea for people who want to browse and have a chat about new surf fiction by a local author.
