Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts crime author Mark Furness: 'Huge thanks to everyone who has so far bought a copy of my new dark comedy crime thriller, Kangaroo Court, released on Kindle today, 17/11/20. It currently sits at #2 on the Best Seller List on Amazon Australia under Criminals Humour! Just behind the UK's Richard Osman blockbuster, The Thursday Murder Club. I don't know what it will take to knock Osman off, but if you haven't purchased your Kindle copy of Kangaroo Court yet, here's the link: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B08NH7SDJN Now on to Firefly Electrics Series Book 3, Galaxy Motel.'
Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts' client Dinuka McKenzie on winning the 2020 Banjo Prize, signing with Alex Adsett and contracting with HarperCollins with her engaging crime manuscript 'Flood Debris'.
Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts' client Mark Furness on the publication of the first volume in his second series, Firefly Electrics 1 'Justice Machine'. These eccentric inner-city Sydney crusaders are a whole new adventure in crime capers and my favourite series of the year so far.
Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts' client Alison Booth on the publication of her fifth novel, 'The Philosopher's Daughters', an engrossing view of the collision between two emancipated and artful English sisters and the very different sensibilities of outback Northern Territory in early twentieth century Australia.
Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts' client Judey Bennett on the publication of her first novella, 'Spirit in the Sky', a mystery adventure involving indigenous spirit, aeroplanes and romance.
Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts' client Peter Dann on signing his much redrafted, oh-so-likeable baby boomer novel manuscript, 'Household Appliances and How to Fix Them: A Repairman's Guide' with ALM.
Congratulations to Flood Manuscripts' US client Woodlief Thomas on winning the Del Sol Press 2018 1st Novel Competition (judged by Robert Olen Butler) with his luminous manuscript 'Just Off Elysian Fields'.
