Adelaide to Port Lincoln – 750 kms270px-Port_Lincoln

First stop was Port Wakefield – distributed my bookmarks to the ladies in the Shell Service Station and Kipling’s Bakery. Sold 2 books.

The lure of the open road – relaxing. Singing (or should I say ‘slaughtering’ some Seekers songs, fortunately alone in my car.

Beginning of summer, farmers are reaping crops and hoping for a great year. Beautiful country. Just down the road is a wind farm – the huge generators twirling in the wind.

Stopped at Redhill and they took some bookmarks to give to customers at the Road House – and they make a great coffee.

Love this replica Clydesdale horse.

Then on past Port Pirie – I didn’t go into town because it’s off the highway. I will do this one in February 2015. Then on to Port Augusta situated right aat the top of the gulf. They say this town is the gate way to the Flinders Ranges and it is also set in the dry arid beginnings of the red centre – the desert.

Me with Joanne, owner of Annie’s Snack Bar, 23 Loudon Road, Port Augusta. She bought books and supplied me with a delicious ham and salad sandwich for lunch.

On to Whyalla a steelworks city famous for the Australian Giant Cuttlefish  and then down to Cowell which has a fishing industry and a jade mine. The Road house there took bookmarks to give to customers.

Me, with fellow author Aileen, at our signing and sales event in Tasman Terrace Port Lincoln. See my new promotional banner. I was very pleased with it.  (Aileen writes young adult books).

I was joined at the event by members of Eyre Writers

It was a wonderful experience talking to my readers – locals of Port Lincoln for many years and old school mates and visitors for the day from around the world on the cruise ship docked in port.

I enjoyed it so much I am going to do it all again, but head east this time I think so watch this space for dates and more events with Cassandra.
