Life's A Beach... The Next Chapter
Fundraiser Third-Party Event
ALL BOOKINGS CLOSE AT 4PM ON FRIDAY 29 APRIL
Break out your floral dresses, grass skirts and Hawaiian shirts!
Help local author, Vivienne Hamilton, in her fight against cancer as she celebrates over 35 years in Sydney’s music industry as a band manager. It’s time to close that chapter and start a new one with the launch of her novel, ‘Gracie’s Girls’! Don’t miss out on a beach bash that promises to lift the roof off the King of Club’s state of the art venue, The CUBE!
There will be a Book Signing by the author herself, Vivienne Hamilton. Enjoy a delicious two course meal whilst being entertained by guest solo artist Steve Balbi from Noiseworks, Simon Kennedy regular on Channel 7 & 9 Morning Shows as well as The Project & Studio 10, Comedian/Singer Jackie Loeb, Tracey-Lee, Endless Summer Beach Party with guest singers and Polynesian Dancers 'Echoes of Polynesia'.
I believe the writing of ‘Gracie’s Girls’ was the universe’s way of helping my family and myself to deal with what turned out to be a classic example of life mimicking art.
My mother’s death in 1998, from T-Cell-Prolymphocytic Leukemia, had a profound effect on all who knew her—and like my main character, Grace, it happened at a time when her family needed her the most.
When I first started plotting and outlining in 2012, I had no idea Gracie’s predicament would become my own: a woman in her fifties being given a terminal diagnosis, and her desperation not to leave her loved ones.
‘Gracie’s Girls’ is intended to be the first of a trilogy. It remains to be seen if Book Two – ‘Katie’s Gift’ and Book Three – ‘Sophie’s Legacy’ are written. That, like many things, will be largely out of my control. Still, I’ll keep writing while there is breath in my body. If I finish them, great; if not, at least I will have died doing what I love and what makes me happy.
Many of my life’s lessons and the influences of the people I’ve surrounded myself with, are steeped inside the pages of this book. I believe ‘Gracie’s Girls’ holds important messages about happiness, acceptance and the possibilities both here and beyond.
I started out wanting to write a book that was entertaining, a page turner that would make you laugh and cry. I hope I’ve achieved that and more. It is, indeed, my legacy to family, friends and readers and a reminder to all of us that anything is possible.
