  • 5 competitions including our own Buzz Words competition open to subscribers only. Send in your first paragraph and you might win one of two $50 prizes.
  • The Inside Scoop where authors talk about their journey to publication featuring Zanni Louise (whose latest book Errol is a favourite). Zanni Louise is a children’s author from Northern NSW. Zanni has written two CBCA Notable picture books and a series for independent readers. Her books are available in 19 countries. 
  • How I Promote My Book with ideas from Allison Tait (aka A.L. Tait),  the internationally published bestselling author of two middle-grade adventure series: The Mapmaker Chronicles and The Ateban Cipher. She blogs regularly about all aspects of writing and book promotion. 
  • An Interview with Michael Gerard Bauer. Read how when Michael’s early ambitions of becoming either a samurai warrior, a ninja or a famous singer-songwriter didn’t eventuate, he followed his love of words and stories and became an English teacher instead. In 2000 he resigned from teaching to pursue his real dream of writing. In 2005 his first novel The Running Man was named the CBCA Book of the Year for Older Readers. 
and the the usual segments of industry news, useful tips and resources.
