Second Success for Bill East!
NAC author Bill East's first novel, 'The Arbutus' sells steadily, and will be joined in book shops early 2018 by 'Maddie Trinco', the sequel. If you found Maddie fascinating, disturbing even, in 'The Arbutus', even reluctantly admired her determination, her simplistic 'get even' moral code, her crusade in 'Maddie Trinco' will have you reading well into the early morning hours ....

The Perfect Christmas Read
‘Brexit - unbelievable how poisonous the situation is in the UK, if you supported the Brexit argument, as did NAC author Sebastian Handley. A proud supporter of the exit movement, a leader of the grass roots revolution in the South of England, Sebastian’s Book is the inside story of one perceptive crusader’s involvement in Brexit. NAC suggests ‘Brexit - How the Nobodies Beat the Somebodies’ is the perfect Christmas read - see ‘Our Authors’ for more’.
Sadly, author Rhona Dunwoodie passed away unexpectedly recently. Her greatest wish in later years was to see published her 'It's All About Melinda', a sensitive account of a young woman with bi-polar. New Authors Collective greatly appreciates Olympia Publishers UK, her publisher, committing to production of the work, with likely publication late 2017 or early 2018. All on the journey with New Authors Collective join Michael, Denise, Dee and Sue in expressing their condolences to Rhona's family. (171005)

Short Story Prize Winner
We are delighted to announce Sarah Bourne recently won the Hunter Writer’s Centre prize for a short story entitled "The Sounds Of You", submitted to their Grieve Anthology. Karen Crofts, Writer, teacher of Creative Writing and Director of the centre, said, "Absolutely loved your piece. I will use it in future to demonstrate brilliant writing other than with the sense of ‘sight’. It was such a personal story but also so universal.” Congratulations Sarah. (170823)
