Being an author isn't always about getting the words down, although that is the most important part. Once the words are down and out in the wild, people like to talk to you about them, particularly if the words in question are a bit controversial.

Unless you've been hiding under a rock you probably heard the story about the US couple who saved their home by self publishing erotic stories on internet? Or about how Natasha Walker, author of The Secret Lives of Emma, is a guy not a gal?

I was recently very fortunate to be invited by Simon & Schuster to travel to Sydney for a couple of awesome reasons. The first was to meet with a group of readers and do a live book club discussion of The Yearning, which was just wonderful.

Friday night I was a very fortunate guest of the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster Australia at the Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA) in the glittering heart of our tartiest capital city, Sydney.

While I’m on questions I consistently get asked (see Virginity and other disappointments), there is another fairly personal In the bedroom question that keeps raising its nosey head. It’s a question that no one would dare ask under usual circumstances (unless they were a very close friend or really drunk or both).

Imagine this. You are talking to someone who is an acquaintance and, after listening to a short synopsis about your new book, they lean in close to your ear and whisper – ‘So, is that how you lost your virginity?’

Release Day - it's like a birthday for books. And I've been like a kid before Christmas for the past few days, unable to sleep for sheer excitement at seeing my baby hit the bookshelves. If my blog supported video, right now you'd be looking at a visual of me in my car saying 'Hi, I'm Kate Belle and today is a very exciting day for me because my first book, The Yearning, hits the bookshelves.

What's a girl's blog without a little blatant self promotion? And what better reason to shout to the rooftops than the release of my first novel in ebook form. The Yearning hit iPad's, Kindles, and Kobos in odd little spots here and there around the country today and I'm DAMNED EXCITED, I can tell you. For those who prefer the physical artefact (I'm with you there, I still like my print books more), the print version will be released around Aust/NZ on 1 May - and I can't wait!!!
