Newt's Emerald

A Regency romance with a fantasy twist...

Inspired by the works of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, Garth Nix’s Newt’s Emerald is a Regency romance with a fantasy twist. New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger calls it “charming; quite, quite charming.” 

After Lady Truthful’s magical Newington Emerald is stolen from her she devises a simple plan: go to London to recover the missing jewel. She quickly learns, however, that a woman cannot wander the city streets alone without damaging her reputation, and she disguises herself as a mustache-wearing man. During Truthful’s dangerous journey she discovers a crook, an unsuspecting ally, and an evil sorceress—but will she find the Emerald?

.@TurnbullMalcolm Why is your govt planning to allow "parallel importation" of books? US and UK don't. Don't surrender Australian copyright.
Parallel importation is weasel term for surrender of Australian copyright. US and UK stay closed, we don't. Stupid.

Felicity BanksGreat talk, thank you for sharing. Your mention of role-playing tales, ebooks, and of course the "Princes" story makes me wonder if you're familiar with text-based interactive fiction. The most text-centric is at, and it's also one of the most commercially viable places to publish ANY longer form fiction writing ($10,000 advance, anyone??) Disclosure: I'm not affiliated with or associated with the company in any way (although I do like them), but I do have a gamebook recently published via their "Hosted Games" label.2 days ago

Hi everyone
I need some help cross-checking some data on sales of THE MISSING KEY short film via iTunes. If you bought the film from iTunes (and I hope you did) please comment here and let me know and tell me what country you are in (or were in when you bought it) and roughly when, i.e. the month of purchase. I'd really appreciate it.
