Your book bag is empty
I first met Emily in 2013. But I’d been following her blog, The Incredible Rambling Elimy, for a year or two before that. So I knew she worked in a bookshop, that she loved reading as evidenced by the 100+ books she reviewed each year. I also knew she was an aspiring author, and had […]
Can you tell us a little about yourself, and how you got started as a designer? Hello! I’m Marie, an illustrator from Singapore. I’ve always enjoyed story-telling, and drawing it out in particular, which would explain how I ended up in animation. After graduating, I still wanted to continue telling stories, but not in the […]

It’s great to be part of this Melbourne launch of the 2019 Margaret River Short Story anthology, We’ll Stand in That Place and Other Stories.  But first, I have a confession. […]
Thank you Caroline for that introduction, thank you Margaret River Press and Bindy for allowing me to speak on behalf of your book, and thank you all for being here to celebrate with Bindy on the publication of this wonderful book called Fabulous Lives. I’m starting literally at the beginning. First lines. One of the […]
My name is Alicia, and I’m a Goodreads-aholic. It’s been about thirty days since I last checked Goodreads. I first started checking Goodreads a whole six months before my book was released. I created an author profile and as soon as If I Tell You was there, with its grey pre-cover art image, I claimed […]
Over the last few months we’ve had the pleasure of working with, and getting to know, Melanie Persson—our latest intern. So we thought we’d introduce her to you by getting her to answer a few questions.   Tell us a bit about yourself, Melanie. Hi there, my name is Melanie. I’m from all over the […]
As the writing trainer for Bright Lights, No City, you worked closely with a number of the participants—can you tell us a bit about your role throughout the project?
