We are thrilled to see our speakers strongly represented in the shortlisted Indie Book Awards for 2019. We have speakers represented in each of the six categories, excluding Illustrated NonFiction and Fiction.
Our celebrated speakers are:
BRI LEE: Shortlisted for Eggshell Skull under Nonfiction. Bri is one of our new recruits, and is intelligent and passionate about justice in the legal system for sexual assault survivors.
CHRIS HAMMER: Shortlisted for Scrublands under Debut Fiction. Scrublands is a bestselling Australian crime novel set in a drought-ravaged town, and has rave reviews for its style and authenticity.
CHRISTIAN WHITE: Shortlisted for The Nowhere Child under Debut Fiction. This title has been a smash hit, and is already in talks to develop the story into a movie.
ERIN GOUGH: Shortlisted for Amelia Westlake under Young Adult. This is a gorgeous novel that we can’t wait to read – with a strong feminist theme, this novel is great for girls schools.
DAVINA BELL: Shortlisted for All the Ways to be Smart under Children’s. Inclusivity is what we are about at Booked Out, and All the Ways to be Smart encapsulates this perfectly.
