The first Brisbane Literary Mafia Zoomcast was a great success. Author and advocate Bri Lee gave some helpful insight into choosing which project to work on next and I certainly found her advice very inspirational! Unfortunately Krissy was unwell and unable to attend but she will definitely be back for the next event, as always on the last Monday of the month: 27 July. Stay tuned to find out who our special guest will be next time! And of course, watch out for some great reading recommendations of latest releases by Aussie authors.
