Of drought and flooding rains

Dorothea McKellar’s iconic Australian poem ‘I love a sunburnt country’ contains the words in my title and never has it been more apt in my publishing journey than the last four days. I regularly send my stories and poems to a myriad of publishers, both print and online, and believe me the droughts far outweigh the flooding rains. My record drought is 8 months, at which point I was about to abandon the whole exercise.

And then comes this week. I hope you get a chance to read (and in one case listen to) some of these.

Thank you all for your ongoing support, especially my special darlings who have bought one of my books. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Chel. It means a tremendous amount coming from you. Yes, that’s my raspy old voice reading into my phone. As for buffing up the poems, they’re both over 20 years old and I regard any tarnish as mere patina. 🙂
