AAPS signs two new authors

We are very proud to announce that two new authors have been signed to the Alex Adsett Publishing Services Agency – Kate Zahnleiter and Narrelle Harris.

Kate is a remarkable young Brisbane author, and her literary fiction YA novel Fitting In With Normal People was one of the recipients of the QWC/Hachette Manuscript Development Program in 2013. This is AAPS’s first foray into literary fiction and we are excited to be representing this talented author and stunning debut manuscript.

Narrelle Harris is a beloved veteran of Australia’s SFF fandom, and her new novel Kitty and Cadaver is a wonderful, exciting and fun urban fantasy adventure with monsters, music and great characters that literally sing out of the pages.  Read the first few chapters of Kitty and Cadaver here.

Nicholas J Johnson’s media keeps rolling out & reviews rolling in

Author of Chasing The Ace, Nicholas J Johnson appeared on popular tv show The Project last week to talk about cons, scams and being beaten up by a granny (watch the clip here). As well as numerous radio spots around the country, his In Conversations with Richard Fidler aired on 7th July and is now available as a podcast. Well worth a listen as Nick charms Richard with the inside scoop on street cons, and how his parents forced him to join the circus when he was seven.
