It is the place to keep up-to-date with the latest news in the world of books.
Every day more and more writers turn to Twitter – some for simple distraction, some to promote a new book, some to rant and rave, some to talk directly to their fans… some turn to Twitter to avoid doing work and some turn to Twitter as it is cheaper than therapy!
So don’t miss out, jump on board Twitter and join the conversation about books, stuff and life with Booktopia and hundreds of writers and their fans.
About the Contributor
While still in his twenties, John Purcell opened a second-hand bookshop in Mosman, Sydney, in which he sat for ten years reading, ranting and writing. Since then he has written, under a pseudonym, a series of very successful novels, interviewed hundreds of writers about their work, appeared at writers’ festivals, on TV (most bizarrely in comedian Luke McGregor’s documentary Luke Warm Sex) and has been featured in prominent newspapers and magazines. Now, as the Director of Books at booktopia.com.au, Australia’s largest online bookseller, he supports Australian writing in all its forms. He lives in Sydney with his wife, two children, three dogs, five cats, unnumbered gold fish and his overlarge book collection. His novel, The Girl on the Page, will be published by HarperCollins Australia in October, 2018.
