Kindling is inching its way into the spotlight courtesy of Hachette’s pre-publication mailout of the work.
Fifty proofs are headed out to mags including Australian Women’s Weekly, Men’s Health, Reader’s Digest, New Idea and Who Weekly; and supplements for newspapers such as the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Australian, and The Courier-Mail. Kindling will also end up in the hands of key freelance reviewers and interviewers who specialise in Australian fiction.
Finished copies will go out to a much wider pool of between 100-150 journalists and producers on newspapers, radio, television and online, around six weeks before publication.
How will it be received? Hopefully, as well as the accompanying brown paper bags… 😉
