This is a big Shout-Out Thank You to everyone who attended our Book Launch and who bought copies of the book on the night: I have just found out that - if you look very closely - the Brisbane Courier-Mail listed John Dixon, Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor as being in the Top Ten of all Independent Book sold in Brisbane in the past week. (Well, it is actually Number Ten, but who's worrying?!) And this is sales in just one bookstore on one night: who knows what may have happened if we had had a regular Australian Distributor carrying John Dixon, Air Hawk and the Flying Doctor throughout the country??!
