Book releases by Aussie Authors in August 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.

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.

Book Releases by Aussie Authors in August 2013

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

So many non-fiction titles being released in August – I have included a few of them in this selection but decided to omit several books being released by politicians. While I am sure may make for interesting reading, after watching television and reading the newspaper, the last thing I need is to consume politics in my leisure time too.

I’m not usually interested in reading historical non-fiction but Girt sounds like it could be fun. I adore the cover art of What The Ground Can’t Hold and am most intrigued by the synopsis for The Night Guest.

Which of these titles most interests you?
