A series of emails led the producers of The Project to writer Alicia Young, who was interviewed for a promo for a week-long series on infertility and baby loss starting tomorrow.
I have it on good authority that Alicia is very proud to have played a part in starting a national conversation on these topics.

Thank you so much to everyone who came to the Dunedin Bruce Finds A Home book launch. I had a fabulous morning getting to know these little creatures, which at the time I thought were cats but upon closer inspection look rather fox-like.
I ran a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to help fund the book, and as part of the campaign 73 people donated books to the Animal Rescue Network Dunedin. Today I was proud to deliver the 73 books to the network, and I hope they assist with fundraising.
Bruce Finds A Home is now available in all good New Zealand book shops. You can also buy it online here:
The New Zealand Woman's Weekly is giving away four copies of 'Bruce Finds A Home'. Check out the magazine for entry details.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along to the Auckland book launch for Bruce Finds A Home - and to everyone who helped me organise it. An extra big thank you to the lovely ladies at The Dorothy Butler Book Shop who made the experience so special.
I'm looking forward to the Dunedin book launch this Saturday 17 February at the University Book Shop from 10.30am. All welcome!
We've succumbed to Jacindababymania over here at Bruce HQ, and put a little something in the post for the PM and her first bloke.
