(Title, Author or ISBN)
Upcoming events for The Vine Bleeds author, J.M. Yates.

Based on a true story, set in Melbourne, this book spans fifty years from the 1940s to the end of the 20th century. The trauma of domestic violence, experienced during Jenny and David's childhood impacts the life choices both siblings make. David follows in his father's footsteps and Jenny enters into a dysfunctional marriage. Inspired by true events, it illustrates what happens is not as important as what we do about it. It highlights Jenny's strength and spirit and her inner journey while coming to terms with her past.

My 80 year old mother in law just read this amazing book. For an “oldie” who usually falls asleep reading, her words “I just couldnt put The Vine Bleeds down”. She was gripped by Jennys story and the cruelty inflicted by her father. She was so impressed with how Jenny went on to pursue her dreams and make a great life filled with love for her husband and daughters.

Launch of Steve Harris' new book The Prince and the Assassin - Australia’s First Royal Tour and Portent of World Terror.

4.30 - 5.30 pm at the Sunshine Coast Readers & Writers Festival.

Delve into a little-known part of Australia's history - a Royal assassination attempt by a psychotic Irish priest!
Journalist, editor and author Steve Harris uncovered this fascinating snippet of history while researching for his first book, Solomon's Noose. The Prince and The Assassin is an engrossing real-life story of how Queen Victoria’s favourite son, Prince Alfred, undertook the most ambitious Royal tour, only for Australia’s overwhelming joy of having the first Royal on its shores jolted by his decadent behaviour, then shocked by an attempted assassination by a man trained as a priest.

Caroline Bouquet, author of Australia Elements and Mapping Sydney a sketchbook, will be exhibiting at the Alliance Française de Melbourne in St Kilda between 5 August and 7 September.

In Australia, the elements dominate our senses. Fire, Earth, Wind, and Water - they bring awe, silence, fear, contemplation, beauty, all at once. French artist Caroline Bouquet has managed to capture this identity of Australia through her exquisite illustrations and through her bilingual book entitled Australia Elements. This exhibition combines the original illustrations that appear in this book, as well as a number of her other drawings of Australian landscapes and Melbourne scenery.
