Shane O

Shane O is a proud Western Sydney local and he considers perfection to be AC/DC concerts and the State of Origin series as one combined event. Even though AC/DC has never publicly declared a side they support during State of Origin, Shane O believes that it has to be the New South Wales Blues because of the band having considerable Sydney beginnings.

June Balmain Tigers Book Writing Update

Click on image to enlarge it
The people voted overwhelmingly in favour to see the cover designs of my two Balmain Tigers books, as soon as possible. That Twitter poll was quite fun and I hope to do more soon. I appreciate the voter support very much, and the cover designs have been direct messaged and emailed to voting participants. As there is still plenty of work underway with interior text line editing for both books, I will wait a bit longer before the cover designs are publicly blog posted and tweeted.
