Back-to-back foreign rights sales of Littlelight and Doom Creek

This week we signed a contract with Suhrkamp Verlag in Berlin to publish the German-language edition of Doom Creek, Alan Carter’s sequel to Marlborough Man. Local audiences will have to wait till December 2020 for the book, but we guarantee that Alan’s spookily prescient take on doomsday preppers going feral in New Zealand will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Meanwhile, on the day Kelly Canby’s Littlelight hit the UBD warehouse in readiness for Aussie booksellers to get it into your kids’ sticky little mitts, we signed a contract with Aras Publishing for the Turkish-language rights. The world is going neon and Kelly is leading the way.

We know restrictions are opening up somewhat, but if you’re one of those families with kids still at home, you may wish to check out Kinderling Kids Radio and Story Box Library. Kinderling will be sharing audio readings from the books Wombat, Mudlark and Other Stories by Helen Milroy and What Colour is the Sea? by Katie Stewart, while Story Box Library will have an audiovisual reading of Antarctica by Moira Court available soon.

Till next time,
