Second Success for Bill East!

NAC author Bill East's first novel, 'The Arbutus' sells steadily, and will be joined in book shops early 2018 by  'Maddie Trinco', the sequel. If you found Maddie fascinating, disturbing even, in 'The Arbutus', even reluctantly admired her determination, her simplistic 'get even' moral code, her crusade in 'Maddie Trinco' will have you reading well into the early morning hours ....

The Perfect Christmas Read

Brexit - unbelievable how poisonous the situation is in the UK, if you supported the Brexit argument, as did NAC author Sebastian Handley. A proud supporter of the exit movement, a leader of the grass roots revolution in the South of England, Sebastian’s Book is the inside story of one perceptive crusader’s involvement in Brexit. NAC suggests ‘Brexit - How the Nobodies Beat the Somebodies’ is the perfect Christmas read - see ‘Our Authors’ for more’.

Vale Rhona! 

Sadly, author Rhona Dunwoodie passed away unexpectedly recently. Her greatest wish in later years was to see published her 'It's All About Melinda', a sensitive account of a young woman with bi-polar. New Authors Collective greatly appreciates Olympia Publishers UK, her publisher, committing to production of the work, with likely publication late 2017 or early 2018. All on the journey with New Authors Collective join Michael, Denise, Dee and Sue in expressing their condolences to Rhona's family. (171005)

Short Story Prize Winner

We are delighted to announce Sarah Bourne recently won the Hunter Writer’s Centre prize for a short story entitled "The Sounds Of You", submitted to their Grieve Anthology. Karen Crofts, Writer, teacher of Creative Writing and Director of the centre, said, "Absolutely loved your piece. I will use it in future to demonstrate brilliant writing other than with the sense of ‘sight’. It was such a personal story but also so universal.” Congratulations Sarah. (170823)

Posting Reviews on Amazon & Kindle

Thirty reviews will lift a book's ranking, inevitably contribute to greater exposure of the work, which leads to increased sales so, you posting a strong review of the book on Amazon or Kindle is the greatest favour you can offer an author. You don't even need to actually buy the book though - if you borrowed it from a friend or the library, just use your Amazon or Kindle account, click on the book cover, select 'Review' and go from there. So, if you enjoyed one of our authors please complete the circle and post an awesome ***** review!! (170705)

Incisive Review of 'The Arbutus'

Bill East's first work is off to a flying start, with sales posted in UK, USA and Australia. Why not take a look at this review of 'The Arbutus' - 'Maddie Trinco', the sequel, is with the editors currently, and should be with the publishers mid-year. (170424)

Sebastian Handley and Anne Deed Join NAC 

New Authors Collective has great pleasure welcoming Sebastian and Anne to NAC's Authors List, wishing both every success in their writing careers. Their first works, respectively, are an extraordinary topical political memoir, and a very moving personal memoir crossing Australian and Asian cultures; both are with publishers right now, and both have offers to consider. Their futures look bright. (170426)

NAC Authors Ambassadors

A recent initiative to promote our authors, NAC invites applications for the role of Authors Ambassador for the upcoming published works. Participation as ambassador may be for just one work, all works of an author, or across a range of authors - as you wish. The ambassador may be located anywhere, not necessarily the author’s country. In fact, location in another jurisdiction is highly desirable. N.B. Research suggests Review Panel members will enjoy completing the circle on works they assessed. A number of Coordinating Ambassadors' roles are available as well. To apply to become an ambassador, or for more information, please apply through the ‘Contact Us’ page.
