French ensemble Nevermind – with flute, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord – met and founded their group while they were students in Paris. They play their Baroque music on period-instruments concerts and are noted for not only virtuoso expertise but also unpretentious charm.
Delighting audiences across Europe in prestigious
festivals and concert series and making their Australian debut with Musica
Viva, Nevermind is disarmingly relaxed and thoroughly dedicated to the
universal appeal of good music.

Joanna Baker will be at the Terror Australis Festival in Cygnet, Tasmania, from 31 October to 3 November 2019
This is a story about motherly love and family, clothed in a dark tale of violence, betrayals and secrets. We are taken deeply into the lives of two women, friends Veronica, an artist, and Lesley, a gallerist.
Whilst the story could well have been called ‘Looking for Roland’, as much of the novel has Veronica in search of her elusive son, its title The Slipping Place holds a much greater meaning than its role as the name of a place the women visited with their sons during their childhood.

For Pity Sake Publishing, Australia, 2019 Dorothy Johnston will be in the Hall of Writers at Terror Australia Festival on Friday 1 November 10am to 4pm, Cygnet Town Hall, with publisher Jen McDonald and fellow For Pity Sake writer Sara Dowse (As the lonely fly, 2019).
Declared interest: Barbie Robinson, who wrote this blog, is the designer for the internals of this book.
The many fans of Dorothy Johnston’s
sea-change mysteries will not be disappointed by this third novel. It’s
atmospheric, a little bit creepy and strange, but as with its two predecessors,
imbued with a sense of place – in this
case, the small seaside town of Queenscliff Victoria, but it could, I guess, be
any small seaside town. They have their secrets and silences.
Piatkus, Great Britain, 2016 Shamini Flint will be at the Terror Australia Festival in Cygnet 1 to 3 November 2019.

This is a book about love.
In the best tradition of crime fiction,
we do have a body in the first three pages. We also have, deftly drawn, Phryne
in all her fashionable splendour and intellectual acuity, her side-kick and
favourite policeman Jack Robinson, significant members of her household – Dot,
Mr Butler (the butler) and Ember (the cat) and by reference Sergeant Hugh
Collins, Dot’s beau.
