After Darkness by Christine Piper – When I included this year’s Vogel Literary Award winning title in my collection of ‘Noteworthy Book Releases in May‘ a few weeks back I received queries from international readers as to when this title might be published in countries other than Australia. I referred this question to the lovely Christine herself and she’s advised the international release date could be at least a year away or more, but those keen to read After Darkness could try an Australian online retailer with inexpensive international delivery such as Readings (currently offering $5 discount on cover price). Christine also arranged for publisher Allen & Unwin to send me a copy for review.
How Does One Dress to Buy Dragonfruit? True Stories of Expat Women in Asia, edited by Shannon Young – Another interesting June release from Signal8Press, emerging publisher focusing on works in English from the Asian region.
Fatal Impressions, Coleman and Dinah Greene Mystery #2 by Reba White Williams – A mystery set in the art world, right up my alley. I’m participating in the virtual tour for this novel hosted by The Story Plant.
