We here at TLB are just so, so stoked about how much the rest of the world likes our first foray into publishing books, Briohny Doyle’s The Island Will Sink. (For example: this, this, this, this and this.) Today we found out another thing to be stoked about: The Island Will Sink has been longlisted for two Australian Book Industry Awards: the Matt Richell Award for New Writer of the Year, and the Small Publishers’ Adult Book of the Year Award.
As if that weren’t enough good news, other TLB alums—Elspeth Muir, Maxine Beneba Clarke, and Helen Garner—have also been longlisted for various Australian Book Industry Awards. We’re thrilled for them, and for everyone else who has been longlisted.
If you haven’t yet encountered The Island Will Sink, now’s the time to get your copy – for a limited time only, we are giving away a free back issue of your choice with any purchase of the print book.
