We’re launching the long awaited Mocklore collection Bounty by Tansy Rayner Roberts this weekend at Conflux. Join us in Canberra at the Novotel on Northbourne Avenue, 5.30pm on Sunday October 2. We’d love to hang out with you!
And don’t forget, there’s just one day left to enter to win a copy of the book on Goodreads!
After a bit of a quiet period recently, we’ve got a busy couple of weeks ahead!
- The official (if belated…) book launch for In Your Face is happening THIS Saturday in Canberra! Details here.
- We’ve sent Tansy Rayner Roberts’ new Mocklore book, Bounty, off to the printer, and the ebook is available for preorder on Amazon right now! You can also enter to win a copy over at Goodreads.
- On Sunday October 2, as part of the Canberra speculative fiction convention Conflux, Tansy and I will be launching Bounty – it’s bound to be loads of fun! More information here.
Really chuffed with the very first review we’ve seen of In Your Face, in which Robbie Coburn in Aurealis #91 says: The genre of speculative fiction can often discourage readers of what is deemed so-called ‘serious’ literature; this collection defies that idea entirely, presenting works that are as literary as they are speculative. In Your Face is a truly rewarding and affecting experience that challenges the essence of what it means to be human, now and in the future.
You can read the full review in Aurealis #91.
Mieneke at A Fantastical Librarian not only reviewed The Rebirth of Rapunzel, she also interviewed Kate! Check out the review and interview at the site.
Mel (booksandsundry) at Goodreads gave five stars to the Mocklore Omnibus and said it’s: “Full of laughs and pacing that keeps you up all night long…”
We’re loving the In Your Face pose (instigated by Cat Sparks) that we’re seeing when people get their copies of the book – tag us on social media with yours? 😀
Thanks as always to the wonderful folks who take the time to review our work, and interact with us online!
It’s been a very busy few weeks in the FableCroft household! In addition to two fabulous awards ceremonies on the weekend, we also launched Kate Forsyth’s beautiful non-fiction collection The Rebirth of Rapunzel: A Mythic Biography of the Maiden in the Tower. The launch was a great success, with over sixty guests in attendance enjoying champagne and chocolate while chatting with Kate. We had a gorgeous giveaway pack, and sold lots of books, and it was just lovely.
Check out the Big Idea behind the book over at John Scalzi’s Whatever blog – thanks to John for letting us play in his sandbox 🙂
You have just a few days left to enter the Galactic Suburbia giveaway for The Rebirth of Rapunzel – listen to the ep here and enter to win! It’s open internationally.
On the subject of Rapunzel (and winners), congratulations to our three winners of the Goodreads giveaway. Sofia Raquel Romero Erazo from Puerto Rico, Sintija Ursulska from Latvia, and Sushma Pillai from India. We hope you love the book as much as we do!

I’m a bit under the weather, and I’m watching jealously as so many friends are making their way to Loncon3, this year’s Worldcon, so I’ve decided to express my pique with FREE BOOKS!
For the duration of Worldcon, the following FableCroft ebooks are ABSOLUTELY FREE to all readers! Go! Fetch them!

“Flower and Weed” by Margo Lanagan
“Sanction” by Dirk Flinthart
Disclaimer: I’ve made the discounts on Smashwords only for the top four items (all formats available here!), but these will probably filter through to Amazon etc via price matching, if that’s your preference. “Flower and Weed” and “Sanction” are only available on Amazon, and the free pricing will kick in tomorrow for five days!
It seems I’ve managed to neglect to blog about our forthcoming book party in Hobart, Sunday March 9 from 4.30. Celebrating the launch and recent shortlistings of Tansy and Dirk’s novels, and the other FableCroft Aurealis Awards nominations, we will be at The Hobart Bookshop to wine, chat and launch with special guest Lian Tanner! Come along if you’re in Tassie that weekend…
