Just letting you know the ebook of After Yasi is now available for $4.75.
Full of interesting links to blogs, videos and photo sets on the recovery after yasi and a slightly adapted version of the coffee table book version (slightly fewer photographs in the ebook.)
Most of all this book is a celebration of the optimism of the Cassowary Coastal community and a reflection on the ways creativity in many forms played an important role in lifting people’s spirits.

The above are part of a series in development on the inner poet. Hoping to make this one into a book.
I am combining the photographs with some artwork from my daughter. She’s pretty excited about our collaboration as well.
Hooray After Yasi, Finding the Smile within, a photo and story book, is finished and has had its Cassowary Coastal launch. The local council bought three copies for the libraries in Cardwell, Tully and Mission Beach and several locals purchased copies.
Several books have now been distributed and the public sharing is just beginning.
You can purchase copies by clicking on the following links:
As it is a small scale community book, produced without any supplementary funding and on a small scale, they are printed on demand through blurb and have become a much treasured item for the contributors. They are attractive books, suitable for libraries and organisations to purchase and make available to the wider public.
The ebook version is on its way. The purpose of this is to make the content of the book easily accessible to anyone who should need it for their recovery process.
You can see the earlier journey of this book, which began as an exhibition here SMILE WITHIN. You can also view some digital stories. Click on the photographs to see which ones also have video stories.
