Indie authors in Melbourne

Posted by on November 2, 2011 in General | 0 comments

Melbourne Writers has a great post today about e-Publishing, with a link to a “getting started” article by Lindsay Buroker.

I stopped by to mention that some of the Melbourne Writers’ Group has ebooks out now. 

Joanna George has Forty Scrubs on Smashwords. Her YA novel is about a teenager with an obsessive thought disorder. 

There’s also my book Kiss Me, Genius Boy, “a story of sex, ambition, and teen romance,” as the ad copy goes. People have told me it reminds them of Salinger, Bukowski, and Osamu Dazai. It’s on Kindle and also iBooks and Smashwords.

Benjamin Grant Mitchell, who I heard about at the last Write Club held here at the Wheeler Centre, also has his novel The Last Great Day on Kindle.

Any others? I’d love to collect a full list of all the serious indie authors active in Melbourne.

Ben Hourigan is an author and freelance writer and editor from Melbourne, Australia. His novels Kiss Me, Genius Boy and My Generation's Lament are available wherever good books are sold online.
