Author Bar Yarns

Beer Yarns and beer NutsGuest authors you will love!

The new, improved Author Harvest brings you Bar Yarns and Beer Nuts 2013/14 blog series with fabulous authors from all genres.

After a big year of hard harvesting yakka (see the 2013/14 Author Harvest) it’s time to drop into the local for a well-earned brew and see authors chilling out.

(After all, the Aussie pub is the heart of every small town and the bar a kind of confessional—at least that’s how it is at Calingarry Crossing pub, which is at the heart of my second novel Simmering Season. Out April 1, 2014!) You can eavesdrop on our chats right here.
