Di­a­mond Sky book sign­ing a hit

Whitsunday Times - - YOUR SAY -

SHE has al­ways had a strong con­nec­tion with the Whit­sun­days.

Re­turn­ing year af­ter year to bask in the trop­i­cal sun­shine on­board a bare boat, au­thor An­nie Seaton was back in the Whit­sun­days last week sign­ing copies of her new book.

A big crowd gath­ered at the Is­land Get­away Car­a­van Park to meet Ms Seaton and have their copy of Di­a­mond Sky au­to­graphed.

While they were there some grabbed a bar­be­cue snag cooked up by mem­bers of Sail­abil­ity Whit­sun­days to help the or­gan­i­sa­tion gar­ner much-needed funds.

“We have al­ways been very in­ter­ested in sail­ing and sup­port­ing chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties,” Ms Seaton said.

“We have a niece with Down syn­drome so we have al­ways had a spe­cial con­nec­tion with spe­cial chil­dren.”

Di­a­mond Sky is the third book in an Aus­tralian ro­mance se­ries and is set in a fic­tional min­ing town in West­ern Aus­tralia.

“They are all stand­alone books, but the com­mon thread is three sis­ters who ex­pe­ri­enced a tragedy 10 years ear­lier,” she said.

“The book is about their heal­ing and growth through ad­ver­sity.”
