We were so excited to see Australian Writers’ Centre alumnus Sarah Bailey on the 2018 Indie Book Awards Longlist for best debut novel, The Dark Lake.

According to the media release:

“Established in 2008, what makes the Indie Book Awards unique is that it’s the Australian independent booksellers themselves who nominate their best titles for the year; select the Longlist; judge the Shortlist and vote for the Category and Book of the Year winners – the entire process is based on the selection and involvement of independent booksellers, members of the Leading Edge Books group, making it one of the most democratic awards in the Australian literary calendar.”

Sarah’s thrilling debut novel, The Dark Lake is a gripping, enthralling read. And we are so proud of everything that she’s achieved.

The Longlist in its entirety is a fabulously strong list. According to the media release, Galina Marinov, National Group Manager of Leading Edge Books said it’s “one of the strongest lists we’ve seen since the Awards inception ten years ago. The list is a tribute to the exceptional quality of Australian writing and publishing and the skills and knowledge of independent booksellers in choosing the best. In recognition of the high standard of locally published illustrated books, this year we’ve introduced a category award for Illustrated Non-Fiction.”

The shortlist will be announced on the 15th of January 2018. And we have all of our fingers and toes crossed for Sarah Bailey.
