From Australia to the world…

Chicago. The last stop of their wildly successful US tour sees Australia’s biggest rock band, The Screaming Tuesdays, in sultry, summertime Chicago to play two sold-out shows. But the stage is not where the action is, and no one knows what goes on behind the scenes…

Kelly knows what he wants. He’s known from the moment he first saw Jasper. But months have passed and he’s done absolutely nothing about it. Now the tour is on its last legs, and the chance to chase his true feelings is fading fast. Can Kelly face his true desires or will he live…

Freedom to Read

The Escapades

by Kate Cuthbert

September 27th marked the beginning of Banned Book Week in the US, a week that spotlights the many, many books that have been challenged over the years for being offensive, politically, racially, sexually, or just about any other -ally that you can think of.

This is an issue that’s close to many writers, readers, and publishing professionals’ hearts – censorship has long, insidious fingers that can affect minds, thoughts, careers, communities, and societies.

This year it’s especially close to home as we reel from the banning of Ted Dawe’s Into the River in New Zealand for highly offensive language and gratuitous sexual content.


The story follows a young Maori boy who leaves an isolated community to attend an elite Auckland boarding school. The main character,Te Arepa Santos, struggles as he deals with his peers, his own journey into adulthood, intimacy, sex, drugs, racism, and death.

MEET MY MUSE: Alison Stuart

MEET MY MUSE: Alison Stuart


Alison Stuart

Meet My Muse with Alison Stuart

While  I would like to think of my muse as an ethereal personage, perched atop my bookshelf, helpfully strumming a lyre and dropping pearls of wisdom on to my desk, I suspect my muse is more likely to be found in a drunken stupor underneath my desk or completely absent and drinking wine with other muses at a local taverna.

The only time I can guarantee that my muse will present herself in good order at my study door is when I am in the middle of a household or work crisis and writing is the furthest thing from my mind.
