29 hours to get there, 32 hours to get home, and  5 fabulous days in Sydney, Australia! 

I packed a ton in those five days too. A walkabout through the city with some of my favorite readers, and new ones too. BABE (Ballgowns and Books Event) sponsored by Jaymin Eve and Tate James was a blast. I met so many new people, and Australians are like the nicest people on Earth! Not even kidding. I saw the Sydney Bridge, the Opera House, the Rocks, Cockle Bay, Circular Quay, the Queen Victoria Building, the zoo, Bondi Beach, Woolies, and so so so much more! 

I ate tacos, and meat pies. I had chicken schnitzel, toasties, barrimundi, prawns, brunch, and some of the fabulous Asian food. It was all delicious! I drank at a Pub, experienced all types of public transportation, and experienced Sydney lit up for Vivid! 

I learned the Whoop-whoop basically means out in the boondocks. Arve or arvo are the same thing and means afternoon. A servo is a gas station. They add artificial sweetener to Coke products, even the sugar versions of the making all the sodas taste funny. And they have no clue what lemonade is! They call Sprite lemonade. What?? 

Australia may speak English, but at times it still feels like a foreign language. LOL

It was a complete whirlwind of an adventure and I cannot wait to do it again!

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to see me, came to BABE, bought books, brought me gifts and treats, and showed me around this beautiful city.


Here are a few pics of Sydney…

And the beautiful colors of VIVID as they lit up the city each night.

And let’s not forget our animal friends! I did leak a little spoiler, so here goes… Lachlan’s book will be set in Australia! BUT it doesn’t release until spring 2024, so you have a while to wait still.

Hope you enjoyed a glipse into my trip. One thing I did do exclusively for BABE but was print an early release edition of His Fierce  Mate. That means Austin and Angel’s book is ready for everyone else to read on July 14th. I cannot wait to share their story with you. Have you preordered your copy yet?
