Book releases by Aussie Authors in May 2013

Aussie Author Challenge 2013As part of the Aussie Author Challenge 2013, each month I will be highlighting a selection of the new books being released by Aussie Authors in the month ahead. As May is fast approaching it is starting to cool down at night here in Australia – perfect weather for snuggling up with a great book.

These features will by no means provide a comprehensive listing of all the titles by Australian authors being released, just the ones I have come across in my travels around the web. I’ll ask readers, authors and publishers to let me know of any other notable Aussie Author book releases that I have overlooked in the Comments Section.

These links are to Australian distributors. I recommend international readers check when these titles will be available from The Book Depository (free worldwide delivery).

Burial Rites, set in Iceland and based on a true story, sounds to me like it could be the next big thing.

The impending release of Kylie Chan’s eighth title Dark Serpent reminds me I have been meaning to read her debut novel White Tiger for years now. Based on the recommendation of a friend, I want to read her Dark Heavens and Journey to Wudang trilogy series from the beginning.

There seems to be a theme of personal reflection amongst the titles this month. Bone Ash Sky sounds epic and A Double Spring heartbreaking, yet stunning. The Memory Trap and Who We Were have also piqued my interest.

Which of these titles most interests you?

    Great post, Jo. I doubt I would’ve found out about them otherwise (for now at least), and it’s nice to know what’s being published elsewhere. Love the cover of the Darling and from the covers it looks a good variety, too.
