Both ebooks are up for sale at a price considerably cheaper than the print list price so if you’re interested in these books this is a great way to acquire them. (Don’t have a Kindle? Not to fear, download the free Kindle app from Amazon and you will be able to read these titles on your smartphone, computer, or tablet.) Happy reading!
Today at Anahera we are delighted to have received two nominations in the Ngā Kupu Ora Aotearoa Māori Book Awards 2014. Ben Brown has received a nomination in the Fiction category for Between the Kindling and the Blaze, and Kiri Piahana-Wong is nominated in the same category for her debut collection Night Swimming. We wish both our authors the best of luck! Winners will be announced next week. More info here.
Night swimming is now launched and is available for purchase on the website (shipping free in NZ; $10 to all international destinations). However, if you prefer to pick up a copy the traditional way, from a bookstore – or just want to have a look or browse through the book, we are pleased to announce that it is now in stock at Unity (High St, Auckland CBD), The Women’s Bookshop (Ponsonby Rd) in Auckland; Unity Wellington; and UBS Christchurch. If you live outside these centres, you can call into any bookstore in NZ and order a copy of the book – just ask at the counter. We also hope to have the book in stock in other centres soon – stay tuned! (Nb. for trade orders, please email us.) Nga mihi nui!
After taking a hiatus in 2012, Anahera is delighted to announce we have two poetry books forthcoming in 2013. The first is publisher Kiri Piahana-Wong’s first collection, night swimming – release date June. The second is Between the Kindling and the Blaze: personal reflections on the concept of mana, by Ben Brown (written on the Māori writer’s residency at the Michael King Writer’s Centre in 2011). Release date early December. Ben is an award-winning children’s book author and renowned performance poet – Between the Kindling is his first poetry collection. This book will be launched in both the poet’s home town of Lyttleton and in Auckland. So an exciting year ahead! We will also shortly re-open for submissions. Please keep an eye on our ‘Contact’ page for further details.
