Michael Gerard Bauer is our guest on AWMonline forums tomorrow at 11am AEST. Join this internationally successful Australian YA author for a chat about his writing career, and tips on building your pathway to publication.
Tonight on ABC Radio National the program "Australia Talks" is looking at parallel importing of books and the territorial rights issues. The discussion should be interesting because they have booksellers and publishers on the panel, and they are keen for some authors to join in, so listen for the number on radio National after 6pm and join in the debate!
In publishing news, Publishers Weekly offers the industry some tough love in this article that calls for downsizing, specialising, and utilising the marketing skills of authors (by making them write publicity material to earn their advance … in addition to the book).
Writing Race is on tonight: Login at 745 for an 8pm start. All AWMonline subscribers welcome.
