Painting my books: signed by the author

'True History' (watercolour on paper) - Jodi Wiley

I love attending author talks and getting my book signed afterwards. It's probably my favourite thing to do. I'm a geek like that.

The only thing is, I can never think of something clever or witty or even remotely intelligent to say when I get to the front of the queue. It's very embarrassing. I console myself with the thought that they will never remember me anyway.

One of these books - The Good Daughter - by my friend Amra Pajalic, is not only signed by her, but my own name appears on the acknowledgements page.

It doesn't get much better than that.
