PRIZES: Celebrate Booktoberfest with Booktopia and Allen & Unwin

by |October 18, 2011

We have taken boring old October and have given it a Booktopia makeover.

Booktoberfest is Booktopia’s way of saying thank you to all of the readers who have chosen to purchase books through Booktopia.

Today I am going to present you with the great offers from
Allen and Unwin…

Allen & Unwin prides itself on being Australian, and it certainly comes up with heavy hitters when it comes to both fiction and non-fiction. Look at these exceptional promotions.

1. Alex Miller’s Autumn Laing is sure to be one of the most sought after novels of the year. Not only are we offering it an exceptional price, but we have two signed backlist packs to give away. Order Autumn Laing before the end of October to go into the draw to win one of these two packs.

Each pack comprises The Ancestor Game, Conditions of Faith, Journey to the Stone Country, Landscape of Farewell, Lovesong, Prochownik’s Dream, Sitters and Tivington Nott. Visit our Alex Miller author page…

2. Paul Keating’s After Words is the closest we are going to get to a memoir from the former prime minister. Under embargo, and with explosive content, this book will be released in November to much public debate.

100 copies only of a signed, boxed, limited edition of this seminal hardcover will be produced. Pre-order the regular edition of After Words this month to go into the draw to win this valuable investment edition.

3. Order any of the books in the Allen & Unwin Booktoberfest Showcase before the end of the month to go into the draw to win one copy of the lot – a magnificent collection. View entire showcase here…

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, 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.
