Most of us would rather fill our handbags with numerous lip products, wallets, bronzers, powders, keys, phones, baby wipes than full, book-sized books, no matter how delightful they are. AM I RIGHT?
Mum says I am so I’m allowed to keep writing.
This is why we created a baby, fits-in-your-iPhone size Amazing Face beauty app, filled with step-by-steps on many makeup and hair looks (including a tricky mirror interaction thingy), all new How Tos on how to do five-minute updos and curl your hair and do smoky eye makeup, as well as a bunch of, quite frankly, terrific portable beauty tricky, like what to say to your facialist so your skin doesn’t peel for the next week, or how to coach your hair colourist into knowing exactly what colour you’re after, or what ftp do if you’re at your lover’s house and a terrifying pimple erupts… you know, that kind of gear. Also you can create clever shopping lists to store all your favourite products and which shade you are, and buy direct from the app from the best beauty stores. Must-have products, a remarkably fresh visual display and wonderfully novel shake-your-phone for a random tip technology completes the fun.
Buy it at the app store today or forever hold your geese.
And to finish, here is a video that (pretty terribly) explains things:
Beauty tricks on the go? You need the Amazing Face beauty app! (NOT map.)
Writing my new novel, that is. Or “book” as the youth call it.
This is a happy coincidence, because it is definitely, frighteningly due. How amazing that I should be racing to finish it, just as my publisher needs it! I mean, talk about weird.
Think of me, my sweets, as I develop terrible posture and unhealthy caffeine habits…
That’s because I have no new books to promote, and am off quietly thumping keys on my next one. (You can monitor my favourite distraction from said book here if you like.)
Oh COME ON.
You know I only post when I want you to buy something or come somewhere or do something!
That’s how I roll, babe.

I can’t tell you HOW many international cities have requested I come do a book signing since the release of my latest novel, The Younger Man! (Chiefly because it could get me into legal trouble, since I would be making it up.)
But one place I will be doing one is Sydney, the birthplace of eggs. I will be discussing The Younger Man, and relationship stuff and book stuff, and answering a heck of a lot of questions.
It will take place on Thursday April 12, at Dymocks, 424 George Street, which is opposite the Apple store, and back a bit towards the QVB. Apologies to PC owners who don’t know where the Apple store is, or the fructose intolerant who avoid anything fruit-based whatsoever.
The event is, as always, free, but bookings are essential, so please call 02 9235 0155 to reserve your spot and your complementary diamond bracelet.*
Please arrive at 6 for 6:30 and wear your finest scuba gear**.
Til then, bumblebees!
*This is a lie.
**This also should be ignored.
Which is my new novel, and probably, definitely your new novel, so by all means go make that happen, you gorgeous little pikelets! What on earth are you waiting for! Do you want to be the only one on the tram not reading it? The only one at book club who hasn’t read it? The only one at Kobos and Kindles Monthly who isn’t scanning it furiously on a small screen? No, no, no. These are all terrible situations, and best avoided.
So! Let’s get you Younger Man-ned already.
You can buy it at all good and even mediocre book stores (HA HA, as if such a thing exists) and also online via Booktopia or Amazon or Borders.com or as an eBook at all those places and more, and also on iTunes and via iBooks and gosh, she’s just scarpered all over the place, really, hasn’t she!
That’s precisley what I wanted.
All my love and a leather glove,
