NZIBF is Live on

We need characters just like you to join us on an
amazingly novel journey.
The NZ Independent Book Festival needs funds for mainstream advertising so book lovers, readers and writers will know to come to our festival for all their literary loves. Be a part of the team that brings this 'bookfest' adventure to life.

The funds raised, once our goal is reached, will be used for advertising the festival in a variety of community papers.  We need to raise awareness of our event not only through social media but also mainstream media. We need to attract 1,000s of visitors to ensure the festival is a success for exhibitors.
Special thanks to Vicky Adin (, ZR Southcombe ( and Dexter Fry of Book Design for their starring roles.
Thank you to those who have already shown support by donating.

If it isn't all donations are returned. Once the campaign has achieved its goal takes 10% to pay for their services. All donations are tax deductible and an official tax receipt will be forwarded from Boosted once the funding goal is met.)

'Out on a Limb'- First NZIBF Blog on Wordpress

20 years ago my husband and I planted our suburban property in native trees. People told us we were mad. But the tuis, fantails, grey warblers, and other birds thank us what we did. Sometimes doing something different is the best decision of all.  So with this in mind I wrote my first blog. It's about the tui who came to visit us on Sunday morning.

Creative Hub is providing a Creative Writing Course prize.
In early May I announced on the NZIBF facebook page:

"At the NZ Independent Book Festival we offer a 100% guarantee that all books sold will be enthusiastically signed by their authors."

This post reached 332 facebookers and received 15 Likes. I expect all authors will be thrilled to meet old and new readers. However just to ensure that smiley smilers don't begin to droop at the end of the each day I can let you in on a secret. The North Shore Events Centre Cafe' offers teas and barista made coffees. For those of you over 18 who require more than a caffeine boost there is a good selection of red & white wines, beers and RTDs. I'm sure everybody will find an option which will help with drooping enthusiasm levels.  
Thank you Dexter for being one of our stars in the NZIBF Boosted video.
