June 2016

Various behind-the-scenes actions happening, including:

- Applying for Arts Tasmania's Crowbar crowdfunding assistance.

- Researching, desiging, writing and planning the Pozible campaign.

- Indecision about whether PAUSE should be 100 pages, not 80.

- Major edit by me to refine the 'moments' in PAUSE.

On a personal note, both myself and Justin (my husband) each farewelled family members. May Christine (my aunt) and Zachary (Justin's nephew) rest in peace.

17 May 2016

Printing company chosen for PAUSE. Quotes were requested from Tasmanian and overseas printers. Based on price and quality, 1010 Printing in Hong Kong was selected as preferred printer.

PAUSE will be 80 pages, full colour, hardback, 8.5in x 11in.

2 May 2016

Mock-up draft version of PAUSE in hardcover received - first look at what the real books might be like. 

January-July 2016

PAUSE is to take the format of a collection of my Tasmanian photos, paired with some prose I am writing especially for the book.

The 32 'moments' of prose in PAUSE were written over six months; each are a peice of creative story-telling which draw a reader deeper into the images using emotive and transportive writing.


The dreams and ideas for PAUSE, and what format it may take, begin to be nurtered. A simple coffee table book of Tasmanian images, or something more that resonates stronger with my own personality and passion for the island?
