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)

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.

NAC Support for Book Clubs

NAC specialises in developing authors’ commercial potential in a wide range of genres, helping fulfil each writer's dream of being published, then increasing visibility of author and their work through the English-speaking world. One way we do this is by working with Book Clubs, providing material on upcoming NAC authors exciting new works, even by arranging access to the author. Ultimately our hope is you will support our authors by placing their works on your Reading Lists. If your Club or your friends' Clubs would like occasional updates re NAC’s next exciting author’s published work please ask to be listed on NAC's 'Book Clubs' circulation list  through the ‘Contact Us’ page.
