Hachette Australia Roadshow: The Tez Edition

I recently attending the Hachette Australia Roadshow in Melbourne, which showcased upcoming books from the publisher that will be getting major publicity pushes.

I took home two books from the goody bag on offer: Karen Hamilton’s The Perfect Girlfriend and Kelly Rimmer’s Before I Let You Go. I’d heard of neither author before, but figured I’ll give these a try.

But my overall impression of the night was disappointing, because I’d hoped to hear that my favourite Hachette authors would be getting the big publicity pushes. Unfortunately, none of them were mentioned. Maybe because the night was focused on 2018 titles, perhaps?

But if you want a box hurled into the sun, you have to do it yourself. After searching through Hachette Australia’s website, I now present to you the upcoming Hachette books I’m interested in, plus a full list of Hachette authors I like – even if they don’t have anything upcoming listed on the site. Though the publication info – including covers and release dates – are for the Australian editions, I’ve included international pre-order links, so everyone can join in to support these authors and books.

Officer Miranda Rader has worked hard to earn the respect of her co-workers and the community, and is known for her honesty and integrity. But that wasn’t always so. She grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in a small town that didn’t believe she could change, and shes spent fifteen years trying to forget about her past. When Miranda and her partner are called to investigate the murder of one of the town’s most beloved college professors, they’re unprepared for the brutality of the scene. Just when Miranda thinks she’s seen the worst of it, she finds a piece of evidence that chills her to the core: a faded newspaper clipping about a terrible night fifteen years ago. The night she’d buried, along with the girl she’d been back then, and until now that grave had stayed sealed. Then another man turns up dead, this one a retired cop. Not just any cop: the one who took her statement that night. Two murders, two very different men, two killings that on the surface have nothing in common. Except Miranda.

Can science save us when all else fails? Trisk and her hated rival, Kalamack, have the same goal: save their species from extinction. Death comes in the guise of hope when a genetically modified tomato created to feed the world combines with the government’s new tactical virus, giving it an unexpected host and a mode of transport. Plague takes the world, giving the paranormal species an uncomfortable choice to stay hidden and allow humanity to die, or to show themselves in a bid to save them. Under accusations of scientific misconduct, Trisk and Kal flee across a plague torn United States to convince leaders of the major paranormal species to save their supposedly weaker kin, but not everyone thinks humanity should be saved. Kal surreptitiously works against her as Trisk fights the prejudices of two societies to prove that not only does humanity have something to offer, but that long-accepted beliefs against women, dark magic, and humanity itself can turn to understanding; that when people are at their worst that the best show their true strength, and that love can hold the world together as a new balance is found.

Though Winter Halo – the pharmaceutical company behind the evil experimentation on both children and adults – has been destroyed, the danger is far from over. Not only do seven children remain unaccounted for, but some of the vampires are now able to walk in light. The key to stopping the unthinkable lies in finding Ciara Dream, the last member of the trio behind the plot to give full light immunity to both the vampires and the Others. But Ciara, like Tiger herself, is a shapeshifter, able to take on any human form she desires. To find her, Tiger will need to use every skill in her formidable arsenal, and even that might not be enough to save the city and the people she has started to care about. Because the vampires are coming, and this time, the lights won’t stop them.

  1. Ooh, another Mira Grant mermaid book! I guess I’d better read the first one… 😉

    And the Keri Arthur book looks fun, too. (Of course, I have *2* previous books to read before that one. There’s just not enough reading time in the day.)
