Announcement: We’re growing up!

July 15th, 2014 at 9:49 am (Miscellaneous)

FableCroft Publishing has always been very lucky in the wonderful people who help make our books happen. In particular, people like our awesome designer, Amanda Rainey, proofer Elizabeth Disney, and other generous friends like Dirk Flinthart, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Jo Anderton and Alisa Krasnostein. Without them (and of course the authors and artists I love working with) it would be impossible to publish the books we do, and the books would be FAR poorer for the lack of their input.

But today we’re announcing a new big step for FableCroft – we’re completely over the moon to announce that we officially have an INTERN! Intern Katharine has been offering help and support to FableCroft (and me) for quite some time, as well as volunteering as a judge for the Aurealis Awards and supporting the wider community with excellent reviews of more books than even I can get to! She really knows her stuff, and I’m so grateful for her willingness to be part of our journey.

About Katharine:

KatharineBioPicKatharine Stubbs used to be mentor and municipal liaison for NaNoWriMo (2005-2012) and an ambassador for National Young Writers Month (2011), but has now retired to be a faithful book reviewer. She is currently in her fourth year of being a judge for the Aurealis Awards, and has recently completed a year as a judge of the CBCA Book of the Year Awards. Some day, Katharine would like to be a published author but until then she is happy rewriting her many manuscripts, reading as much as possible, and travelling. She is greatly looking forward to interning with FableCroft Publishing, and simply adores the Australian spec fic scene!

Australis Imaginarium revealed!

July 11th, 2010 at 5:59 am (Australis Imaginarium)

The very awesome Amanda Rainey has worked her magic once again, this time with artwork by illustrious Shaun Tan, creating the cover for Australis Imaginarium. It is beautiful and I love it.

Australis Imaginarium will go to print tomorrow, and, interestingly, because we’re using a different printer this time, will probably arrive the same week as Worlds Next Door! Will post a preorder special real soon!
