Heating up for a big 2014

We have some outstanding books coming your way this year. First off, the Sleepers Almanac No. 9 is out this April. It’s another cracking collection showcasing the best new fiction being written today. You might want to get your hands on the ebook version – it will have animated gifs in it! Then, coming in July, we’re very proud to present the debut novel by Eli Glasman, and our first novel for young adults, The Boy’s Own Manual To Being A Proper Jew. This wonderful story tells the tale of Yossi, a young man growing up in Caulfield’s Orthodox Jewish community and grappling with his sexuality.

While you’re here, you might like to check out some of the excellent debuts we’ve published in 2013: What Was Left by Eleanor Limprecht, Inheritance by Balli Kaur Jaswal, and Holy Bible by Vanessa Russell. If you haven’t got your mits on any of these yet, now’s your chance. Order now so we can get them to you fast! Let us know if you’d like one of our snazzy keyrings that doubles as a beer bottle opener (because when don’t you need one of those?)
