From Dennis Jones It is a time for optimism around work at the moment; we have decided to take a booth at the industry trade show in May and also Gardners are going to have a booth as well. No I don’t know if these things are “happenstance” or what, however the book projects coming up are getting better all the time. I have to admit elation when we get notes from all sorts of readers about the books. Those two lead titles I was talking about last month have really gotten readers reading. “Carrots and Jaffas” has already had many reader responses. Jeanine Jones who helps us in Perth sent me an email last Saturday to say she had just finished and the emotion was getting the better of her. I spoke with Louis de Vries about the book again today and he said he had now read it four or five times. I just hope the word of mouth, reviewers and our booksellers give it all we can. The other highlight has been the response to “The Tainted Trial of Farah Jama” - the publisher Cathy Lewis actually redesigned the back jacket last week to accommodate the sweeping review coverage the book has been getting in pre publication. With these two books it seems all Writers Festivals are going to support them and we have eBooks of both of them for those stores taking Kobo and other bookseller eBook supplies. Another great news story today was the short listing of Berbay Publishing for the Bologna Book Awards 2014 BOP - Bologna Prize for Best Children's Publishers of the Year. "The Prize has been created to recognize publishers at the forefront of innovation in their activity for the creative nature and bravery of the editorial choices they have made during the previous year's edition of the fair." Berbay Publishing is one of four publishers nominated. See link below for nominations. http://www.bolognachildrensbookfair.com/en/ winners-2013/2540.html I reckon Berbay will have some more news stories to come this year as well. One of the other emerging stories / books is Matthew Michalewicz’s “Life in Half a Second.” I have had the chance to meet Matthew on a few occasions and each time my resolve gets stronger to place him and the book in broader and stronger business opportunities in this market place. If you get the chance catch up with him - it is an experience. In a gutsy move he has also employed a US PR agency to boost the book's image over there; we take so many leads from the US for books of the genre.The shops come and go – lousy phraseology – but this is what is happening; this week we lose Dymocks Collins Street and I believe the Horgans (Shearers of Sydney) are on the shift again as well – thank goodness Boffins Phone: 03 9762 9100 | Fax 03 9762 9200 Email: orders@dennisjones.com.au

(WA) is going to a new expanded shop in Perth; this is very exciting as we will now have an award winning independent bookseller opening further into the CBD. Same thing is occurring with Robinsons in our Melbourne CBD. For those with some memory other than a terrabyte of storage we have another Ducati book coming for Father’s Day. Last time we had a Ducati book we sold it firm sale and sold in excess of 1500 copies at $80.00 – the isbn will be on www.dennisjones.com.au as soon as it is given to us. The “angry algorithm” has a friend called the “dispassionate algorithm”. We really don’t give a perfect view to consumers in the book industry with our forced choice of how we list some books. If we create a global Print on Demand edition we typically have the book listed on the databases before we release locally – so the grumpy algorithm sees the book offered at up to 100% more than our Australian selling price until our daily in stock washes over that feed and the algorithm points to us – it is a bit annoying for the industry when viewed by consumers as having weirdo pricing. The “dispassionate algorithm” rears its head when an “industry” feed does not include key books available to consumers; the case here is the show on ABC TV two Sunday nights ago with David Attenborough featuring the Natural History Museum Alive 9780957243651. Via Gardners we had arranged for all account booksellers to be offered a special 50% off UK price for this book and thank you to those who took up this offer. If however you use an “industry “ feed it is not there as those feeds are not inclusive. We are about to move away from the Lightning Source Trade Channel partner spot in this ANZ region. We tried hard and I thank my colleagues for the work put into this over the last 12 months. But, we got sick of hearing abuse over us being the party setting selling prices (and giving all parts of supply chain an operating margin) when those “recommended” prices in the bib files were fairy tales. If it starts to affect your core business then we had to make a decision to delete this part of the service to the booksellers in ANZ. As some of you will know it costs a lot of inputs to set these relationships up and when they don’t work it hurts to take them down. (Any queries please raise with myself.) Sell plenty and read more Thanks DJ

Stories and essays by ten talented writers, including  Maria  Takolander, Tony Birch and Jennifer Mills. Introduction by  Amanda Lohrey. Cracking The Spine is the most innovative resource in Australian literature I have seen in many years. An anthology of contemporary short stories, each with a commentary by their authors, the collection breaks down the wall between the creative and discursive, the imagistic and the expository. Filled with cutting-edge, innovative writers and armed with an expansive definition of what it is to be an Australian, Cracking the Spine will be at once accessible to undergraduate students and informative and challenging for their teachers. What a thrill to see a work like this come about! —Nicholas Birns, editor,ANTIPODES

An avid interest in Australian history and a chance family  incident triggered a search by Leon Isackson and his  siblings for information about their maternal  grandparents. The more they researched, the more  fascinating the information became. Fortunately Isackson  had already written a hugely successful first book (and an  updated version some years later) about his Rock and Roll  career. He had the skills and enthusiasm to now gather  this new (to him) true and wonderful material about his  family into a book which encompasses one of the most  fascinating and tough eras of Australian history and  describes the antics of many colourful characters so well‐ known to us all, whose paths crossed with those of Leon's  ancestors again and again.  Sydney‐born Leon Isackson enjoyed a career as a drummer  extraordinaire in the most exciting era of Australian Rock  and Roll, performing in what were to become famous  bands, in fact great icons of those heady years. He began  with Dig Richards & The R'jays in 1959, which became The  Rajahs in 1964 and Johnny O'Keefe's backing band for  three years. He entertained the troops in Vietnam with  Lucky Starr and then Eden Kane; this led to the creation of  the Australian Overseas Forces Entertainment Fund. Other  famous names Isackson either toured with or recorded and  arranged for were The Chant, The Delltones, Johnny  Farnham, Russell Morris and the amazing Winifred Atwell  with whom he played for several years. In the 90s he co‐ founded The Mighty Guys with guitarist, Mick Hamilton,  which made three successful albums for Glenn A Baker.  Based on his diaries from 1956 to 1966, Isackson's first  book, Behind the Rock, co‐authored with the late Jon  Hayton, was released by Time‐Life in 1990 to rave reviews.  It was then released again by Sid Harta in 2010 as Behind  the Rock and Beyond, updated by Isackson to 1980. Leon Isackson lives on the Northern Beaches in Sydney  with his family and, as well as writing and researching,  continues to play and write music.

May 2014 New Title Releases ‘Mr Justice Burton said the present case was different from  any that had ever been brought before the court.’ The Massacre at Myall Creek represents a tragic page in  Australia’s history. The massacre was described by the  Chief Justice, Sir James Dowling, as ‘one of the most  important cases which has ever come under our notice  since there has been a Supreme Court in New South  Wales’. This is an updated reprint of a limited edition book  published in 1993, telling the story of the killing of about  28 people camping peacefully at Myall Creek Station in  1838. A party of horsemen rode up, tied the victims, took them  over the hill and proceeded to kill them. As a result of investigations under difficult conditions, and  two trials, seven men were hanged a week before  Christmas Day, 1838.  Their trials and conviction caused an outcry in the colony.  Until that time, some people saw the killing of Aborigines  as no more an offence than the shooting of kangaroos. This is their story, largely as it was recorded at the time.

The Author takes this opportunity to apologise for the  feelings of inadequacy that will arise in those who  encounter the exquisitudinal stories herein contained, or  barely contained — glittering, lacy, plangent with ideas  and pungent with wordplay, all touching on — sometimes  delicately, sometimes with fists, sometimes with greasy  intimacy — diverse curious and amusing notions, such as  an endeavour by British colonials to terraform Hell  (contrast with the story dealing with the late Carl  Linnaeus’s attempts to classify the species of Paradise); a  planet wrapped in fabric where pirates boom and roar in  galleoned steam irons; a look at what it will mean to be  disabled in the future … etc., etc. — a book to be handled  with care, so close is its resemblance to a clutch of  Faberge eggs, their Faberge chicks waiting to be hatched  by the warmth of the Reader’s startled regard.

May 2014 New Title Releases Australia’s first submarines, AE1 and AE2, entered Sydney  Harbour in time to join the celebration of Empire Day 24  May 1914 after a voyage from Britain that The London  Times declared: ‘manifestly the most remarkable yet  performed by a submarine’ – 83 days, 60 of which were  spent at sea. Australians were fascinated by their  submarines and proud that their young navy was bravely  at the forefront of such technology.  Britain declared war against Germany on 4 August 1914  and the British Admiralty despatched the Australian fleet  to capture German New Guinea and destroy the German  Pacific Fleet. On 14 September AE1 left Rabaul Harbour,  with orders to patrol east of Cape Gazelle, and was seen  off Duke of York Island in St George’s Channel.  Then AE1 simply disappeared. This was the first loss of a  military unit during WWI and the beginning of a terrible  war for Australians. An ensuing search found no trace, and  for the families of the 35 officers and men onboard AE1  life would never be the same.  The Mystery of AE1: Australia’s Missing Submarine and  Crew traces the beginnings of Australia’s navy and  searches for answers to the questions that continue to be  asked:  Who or what contributed to the loss of Australia’s first  submarine?  What killed the crew of AE1?  Where do they lie?  And why has Australia neglected them and their  descendants? 

The Mystery of AE1

Launch Details To be launched by Brendan Nelson on 26th April in Holbrook, NSW, at a Submariners ANZAC reunion and the opening of a commemorative window for AE1 at the museum which disappeared on 14 September 1914.

May 2014 New Title Releases This book is a study of biographies and autobiographies of  Italian Australians. It looks at full‐length life‐writing texts,  including accounts of the Italian Australian experience of  war‐time internment, success stories, narratives of trauma  and grievance and life narratives as a form of  ethnography. There is a variable zoom focus, ranging from  a whole chapter devoted to a single text, to surveys of a  dozen or more texts in each of four chapters. A final  overview maps out a chronology and typology of Italian  Australian life writing relating it to immigrant life writing  generally. Given its topic, the book has a tightly integrated double  analytical focus. On the one hand, it studies the textual  strategies deployed by the writers, and, on the other  hand, it explores the experiential dimensions highlighted  by the texts. About the author Professor John Gatt‐Rutter is an Honorary Associate of La  Trobe University (Melbourne) and the Italian Australian  Institute, and a world authority on Italo Svevo (the  pseudonym of Ettore Schmitz), a close friend of Joyce in  the formative years in which Ulysses was written. John  Gatt‐Rutter has spent a lifetime in Italian studies,  especially literary, including 17 years as Vaccari Professor  at La Trobe University, and his publications include a  literary biography of Italo Svevo. He is now an Honorary  Research Associate at La Trobe and at the Italian  Australian Association.

This true story of John, a young schizophrenic man, the eldest of four boys, who grew up in Canberra at the time Walter Burley Griffin was  designing the lake, in a happy home where he had fun, got up to mischief with his brothers and was regarded as a promising student. A trip overseas as a young man when he had followed the ‘love of his life’ resulted in a bout of mental illness and the onset of schizophrenia. At  the time he was physically unwell and emotionally devastated with a broken heart after their break‐up and he was such a long way from home. This is as much a story about John’s family as well as John and the setbacks and heartbreak they experienced when dealing with the mental  health authorities. It also illustrates police brutality and general lack of understanding in the area of mental illness in the 1960s until John was a  forty‐year‐old man. John’s parents wrote fruitless letters to the authorities and were left with a situation where their son could not be  guaranteed appropriate treatment and their minds could never be put at rest about his wellbeing. Despite the hopelessness and sadness there  are glimmers of John’s wry sense of humour in this book. John had several daring adventures and escapes from mental institutions. His parents never knew what difficult and emotionally shattering  situations would crop up next.

The Positive Thinking and Motivation You Need To Live an Extraordinary Life. If you're reading my book, there's a very good chance that you're  looking for change in your life. So to make sure you get the most benefit out of the information on every page, here's how I suggest you go  about reading it. Firstly, make a commitment to read the entire book from cover to cover and set a date by which you want to have it finished.  Buy yourself a wealth creation and goal setting journal, which we will call your Wealth Creation Journal (you'll learn more about this in Chapter  1). Every chapter contains a series of exercises and questions that I strongly encourage you to complete as you go. You can complete the  exercises in your Wealth Creation Goal Setting Journal, but if you have the printed version of this book, I have also left space within these pages  if you'd prefer to write your answers there. Finish every exercise in each chapter before moving onto the next if you really want to live an  EXTRAORDINARY life! You may find that some of the personal development exercises and actions you decide to take will challenge you and  push you out of your comfort zone. This is a positive and very normal part of introducing changes to your life because it means you are growing  and getting closer to the result you want. So push through these 'growing pains' and don't give up. If you are having major relationship  troubles, family issues, poor health, ongoing financial crises or other turmoil then you may feel that this book is too optimistic, or not, for you. I  encourage you to make sure you are getting enough support, maybe therapy or counselling but keep reading. There may be simple techniques  mentioned that help you shift your mindset so you understand that while things may not look like they are heading in the right direction in your  life yet, there are tools you can use to plan and design your future. Keep looking forward at the great things that are possible in your life .

The Wilderness Years ‐ a parents' survival guide is a book that offers solace for mothers as they battle across the landscape of child‐rearing.It is  a voice of reason cut low across the incessant babble of how to's and don't do's that plays in the background of parenting. It gives credence to  the first 5 years of motherhood and acknowledges the physical and emotional sacrifices all mothers make."There are times when you will  huddle under a blanket on the sofa furtively eating chocolate and praying for divine intervention. Or a natural disaster." Witty and inspirational,  "The Wilderness Years" transcends parenting styles and techniques, socioeconomic groups and choice of pet. In a time where everything is  about the children, it is a book for the parents, about parents, by a parent.

Even the great and all‐seeing Buddha himself must wonder if a simple man, born of a warring family, could escape a fate 1,000 years in creation? Young Zhen Di, the Shaolin Warrior Monk in training, will test that which the Buddha and fate lay on his Path. For fans of Kung Fu action, The Mark Of The Shaolin, book one in the Tigers of Wulin series, tells the story of a young man on his path in the  Shaolin Temple to become a legendary Shaolin Warrior Monk. Should Shi Zhen Di survive the arduous training and the final test, the Hall of Wooden Men, where others have failed and paid with their lives,  he must chose between the Way of the Shaolin or seek to avenge his family and all they have lost at the hands of a dreaded bandit  organization led by his elder brother and Master of the Huquan Tiger Fist method, Chen Dao. Joining Zhen Di on his path of self‐discovery is Iron Wu, the Wandering Taoist, and Yijun, a young female assassin, as they venture into the  Snake's Den for a final confrontation that will change them all forever.

In the seventeenth century colonial town of Salem, Pastor Parris’ household grows larger with the coming of his niece, the young Abigail, cousin  of his daughter, Betty. The girls are fascinated by the colourful slave Tituba and her story telling; the woman from Barbados has cared for the  motherless Betty all of her life.  If Abigail had not come to Salem Village, would the events that later took place have been averted? If Abigail had not been jealous of Ann … If  Pastor Parris had had any courage at all … If people hadn’t been terrified of the accusers … If Tituba had not taken the girls to the forest … If  they had all not been so immersed in superstition and religion … would it have taken so long to halt such a foul outbreak of sanctified murder?  All the sermons and fasting in Christendom could not have prevented the fear that engulfed Salem. It manifested on three levels: terror of the  Devil; terror of witches and their supposed power of direct physical harm, and terror in the hearts of those accused as witches and wizards.  Was Abigail guilty of mass murder? Did Pastor Parris deserve forgiveness? Was Tituba responsible too? What was the real cause of the girls’  afflictions?  The Salem witch trials were an extreme event in a devil‐ridden era. Abigail and the Terror is a gripping tale of persecution, cleverly woven  together by inhabiting the minds of Abigail, Betty, Pastor Parris and Tituba.

…the world of Casablantasy, where shining kingdoms are certainly not spread like blue mantles beneath the stars. Instead, the City: where corporate greed meets foul necromancy; the unrelenting advances of Maginology and the subtle menace of the Guilstapo exist beside squalid  City breed cut throats and ogres with exaggerated axes. Here, the legend of Franklin ‘Stubby’��Mynos begins: a be‐spectacled minotaur with a mind for Kryptic Krosswords and a stomach for Hurghian  coffee. There’s a killer on the loose, which is hardly news in a City crawlin’ with killers; but this killer—The Hightown Hacker—is killing the  wrong kinds of people, in the wrong kinds of places. City commerce is suffering. Rich and powerful people are getting scared.

The links courses of Great Britain and Ireland are one of the greatest wonders of golf. Spanning the islands from the remotest clifftops to the  most windswept of sand dunes, they express the full wild splendour of some of the most rugged and beautiful areas in the world. For golfers  they are as challenging as they are awe inspiring, as players must contend with hazards which range from the increasingly ferocious wind to  animals grazing on the fairway. Beyond that, they truly represent the history of the game, a legacy to be treasured and preserved as well as  enjoyed. In one of the most ambitious and comprehensive undertakings in the literature of the sport, David Worley has re‐photographed, rewritten and  added to his original book which was first published to rave reviews in 2007. He has reviewed almost every links course throughout the British  Isles, 165 in total. This volume includes detailed appraisals of each course, together with over 500 colour photographs which show the courses  in all their magnificent beauty. 'Another Journey Through the Links' is indispensable for anyone with an interest in that most spectacular and  unique of sporting environments, the links course.

Early in 2007 I was scrounging around for publicity for my first book (Slapped by an Angel, co-authored with Kym Crosbie), when I was presented with an interesting counter-offer by Charles Wooley, who I knew from my television days at Channel 9. In essence the deal was I could plug Slapped all I wanted, providing I jumped in a campervan and ventured out 'where the horizon meets the sky', sourcing and broadcasting stories for Charles' radio program, Across Australia. So out I went. When I set off I had no real idea what to expect, indeed I was too pre-occupied with trying to promote the book to pay much attention to what was going on around me. But slowly the journey changed me, and one by one the people I encountered opened up my narrow, city-centric view of the bush, and left me with a snapshot of rural Australia early in the twenty-first century. I spoke to many hundreds of people engaged in all sorts of weird and wonderful pursuits, and had the rare experience of seeing the country through the eyes of the people who know it best. In other words, this was no holiday jaunt from one tourist attraction to another, but an honest look at life in regional Australia. From drought to flooding rains, through changing seasons and federal governments, I wandered the country listening, learning and gathering as many threads as I could manage, before sewing them together to form this patchwork quilt of book called Red in the Centre.

After the success of the first 'Red in the Centre' journey for radio, Monte Dwyer was commissioned by Channel 7's Sunrise programme to go bush and re-create his spontaneous storytelling style for television. But not everything went as planned. This book follows Monte's evolution from struggling technophobe to selfassured multimedia something-or-other, as he travelled the land in search of the stories seldom told. 'Through the Crooked Lens' is a celebration of life beyond suburbia, a quirky snapshot of remote Australia taken by a man with an eye for detail and an acute sense of fun.

Are they really turning the old atomic test site at Maralinga into a tourist park? Why did Gulflanders know 2011 was going to be a monster wet season? And what exactly is the H chord anyway? If you don't know the answers you need to read this book. Monte Dwyer is a freelance multimedia journalist and a fine storyteller to boot. Looking for the H Chord is the third in the 'Red In The Centre' series and his best yet. From the Qld floods in early 2010, through The Great Victoria Desert and the Kimberley, across the Top End into Arnhem Land, then all the way back to Qld just in time for the unprecedented 2011 wet season, Monte explores the "cobwebby corners" of Australia and her people. Looking for the H Chord isn't just a good read, it's a trip around the country without leaving home. Get your 'ticket' now!

In the News Inheriting a passion for writing and travel from great, great  grandfather, author and adventurer, Louis Becke, Diana  began writing at an early age. A talent for ballet changed  her direction, and as a teenager she travelled to London to  study at the Arts Education School. Returning to Australia she began working in professional  theatre, touring the country for many years with music  theatre and later straight drama. Her entire working life  has been as a performer, with leading roles in theatre,  film, television and radio. In her 20's Diana became politically active and co‐founded  Actors for Nuclear Disarmament and later her interest in  Human Rights led her to join Actors for Refugees as  producer/performer and writer. Her story, 'Willy Willy in  Woomera" was published in the anthology 'Acting from  the Heart'. A late‐starter at University, Diana studied screenwriting at  R.M.I.T. when she was 50, and her short film scripts for  children, 'Take 2' were published and distributed in  schools. Diana has been able to combine her passions for  travel and writing with trips to Indonesia, where she has  worked as Playreading Coordinator, producer and actor  with the prestigious Ubud Readers and Writers Festival in  Bali. The Camros Bird charts one person’s developing relationship with an asylum seeker, but in parallel it sensitively and disturbingly reveals what has happened in Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers. Diana has for years been intensely involved in the refugee issue, and has great insight into the way Australia has responded to the arrival of boat people. That insight was evident in her excellent chairing of a session about boat people at the Ubud Writers’ and Readers’ Festival - Julian Burnside AO QC

'The tales, told by an author with an obvious talent for folklore, would  make an excellent choice for young readers looking for a unique  alternative to standard titles, and would be a beautiful introduction to  the rich world of folktales.' (Junior Bookseller and Publisher, Term 1  2014) About the author Kate Forsyth wrote her first novel at the age of seven, and is now the  bestselling, award‐winning author of 26 books, published in 15  countries. She has been voted one of Australia's Favourite 25  Novelists. The Wild Girl tells the story of star‐crossed lovers Wilhelm  Grimm and Dortchen Wild, the young woman who told him many of  the world’s most famous fairy‐tales. Bitter Greens, her retelling of  'Rapunzel',was called ‘the best fairy tale retelling since Angela  Carter’. Kate’s books for children include The Gypsy Crown and The  Puzzle Ring, lauded as 'a richly told tale of history, magic and intrigue  by a wonderful storyteller.’ Kate has spoken at conferences and  festivals around the world, including at Oxford University, and has  taught writing in the UK, the US, Fiji, Greece, Singapore and Australia.  She recently finished her doctorate of creative arts in fairy tale  retellings. Her website is www.kateforsyth.com.au

When Maggie Magpie alerts the native wildlife of the Goonoo Forest to the presence of trappers in their midst, the  whole forest is in an uproar. What can they do? Where can they hide? King Parrot calls them all to order, but to no avail.  Rover the Barking Owl arrives amongst all the confusion and comes up with a daring plan. He convinces the frightened  creatures that by working together as a team, they can overcome the intruders. He calls upon George the Giant Goanna  to help and, together with the other forest inhabitants, the plan is successfully carried out. The back pages of the book  are devoted to illustrations and information concerning the forest creatures depicted in the story and a map showing  where the forest is situated

Justin Credible is a real live Pinocchio with a keen sense of smell. Trained as a super sleuth for the DNA (Department of Nasal Affairs), he is  often called upon at the first sniff of trouble. With a nose for those hard to crack smelly cases, it's no surprise when Justin responds to an urgent call for help. Someone or something has  dropped a stink bomb in the city of Aroma ‐ and the stench is devastating! Gardens are wilting, birds are dropping out of the sky, and the residents are leaving in droves! With sleuth‐like determination, Justin follows his nose to solve the mystery of the phantom smell before it wipes Aroma off the map! On the Nose is a fun and entertaining read that I'm sure would be enjoyed by young boys. This story is along the same lines as the Just books  and Captain Underpants series: crazy, funny and really silly ‐everything a young boy loves in a book.
