What an exciting month for Rockpool, brand new book distributors signed in the UK,  Europe and New Zealand, our books will be sold throughout the world.  International exposure for Australian authors is always a priority for Rockpool, and we are very pleased to announce that another two books this month have been picked up by international publishers for translation editions. 


These two books are next years, 2013 Lunar and Seasonal Diary (Northern Hemisphere Edition) by Stacey Demarco and last month's featured title Doulas by Susan Ross.  These books will be available later this year in Italian and Spanish respectively throughout Europe.  Congratulations Stacey and Susan. 


Whilst Rockpool has been selling eBooks in the US and Europe for the last year, we had not found the right partner to take them into Australia/NZ, until this month.  We are very pleased to now offer our eBooks into Australia and New Zealand through local retailers. Released already this month are the first 12 eBooks, followed by another 15 titles over the next month. Please contact Rockpool directly if you want more information on where to purchase our eBooks from.  


We hope that you enjoy the April newsletter; the new book extracts links that we had so much positive feedback on last month and of course this month's Facebook competition again, happy reading!
