Australian Booksellers Association tradeshow and cover reveal

I was fortunate to attend the Australian Booksellers Association (ABA) tradeshow in Canberra recently to talk with booksellers about my upcoming novel, Matryoshka – a story of secrets, refuge and loves lost and found, set in Tasmania. The novel follows three generations of women of Russian heritage – hence the symbol of Russian dolls.

What struck me at the tradeshow was the fantastic ecosystem that is Australian publishing – the publishers who all know one another and seem to be more colleagues than competitors, the booksellers, the writers. It’s an intimate and interconnected network with one shared interest: an absolute love of books. It was a privilege to attend. And I do love the cover of the new book. Warmest thanks to Ventura Press and Simon and Schuster.
