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.
