Following the Gold Coast Supanova Experience, I was feeling a little flat. (I sold one copy of Ned Kelly and two copies of Air Hawk to visitors to my rented Gold Coast Holiday Unit, but none during Supanova's two days.) But now I am again feeling energised! I have been told today that 15 advance copies of Oi Oi Oi! are on their way! I just hope they arrive BEFORE I set off for Melbourne's Supanova, so I can SHOW THEM OFF down there!
