If you are a reader, writer, appreciator of literature and literary greats, lover of the humble written word, then you need to know about this. Indie publishers, Tomely, (who have the coolest website, by the way) have rolled out a Luminous Literary Journals bundle which gives you access to some of Australia’s top literary journals and collections for a very reasonable price. Very. To buy the included titles separately, you’d be paying $67.
For two weeks only, seven of Australia’s leading lit journals/collections (Voiceworks, Kill Your Darlings, The Review of Australian Fiction, The Lifted Brow, Tincture, Sincere Forms of Flattery, and Willow Pattern) will be available in one convenient pack. You can pay as little or as much as you’d like, from a baseline of $5. Even better: 10% of each sale will, by default, be donated to the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation.
Our book, Sincere Forms of Flattery, which retails at $7.99, is part of this bundle – which means you can unlock it for as little as $5. And don’t stop there. You can pay a little more and keep unlocking some of the best collections of writing Australia has on offer. And if you Tweet about it? You can unlock bonus books.
Sincere Forms of Flattery is a truly beautiful book which has been a labour of love for its contributors and Sandi and me, its editors. It is six stunning short stories that pay homage to six literary greats, six essays explaining the writerly relationships and six original illustrations inspired by the stories themselves. You can read more about the book here and about my story and literary heroine here.
So go, go, go! Get reading! And tell me what you think (really. Do. I am desperate to know.)
