Hey friends! August is now well and truly underway, and we’re so excited for our upcoming Book Meet. This month, we’re lucky enough to be joined by the author of Gap Year in Ghost Town, Michael Pryor! As usual, we’ll be meeting in the upstairs section of the cafe in Dymocks from 2.30 – 4pm – it’s bound to be a great afternoon.

Gap Year in Ghost Town by Michael Pryor
Let’s get this straight – ghosts are everywhere. I can see them. You can’t. And, see them or not, they’re dangerous. This is why my family has hunted ghosts for hundreds of years to protect people like you.
The Marin family are outcasts of the ghost hunting world. They run a two-man operation in inner city Melbourne. Anton has the Ghost-sight, but his father does not.
Rani Cross is supremely skilled in hand-to-hand combat, with enhanced speed and strength thanks to her magical initiation into the Company of the Righteous.
When it comes to ghost-hunting methodology, Anton and Rani don’t see eye to eye – Anton likes to ‘ease their passage’ to the next world, while Rani’s all about the slashing.
But Melbourne is under threat; with a massive spike in violent ghost manifestations, Anton and Rani must find a way to work together to keep supernatural forces at bay.
And what with all the blindingly terrifying brushes with death, Anton must decide if he really wants in on the whole ghost hunting biz anyway.
If you can’t attend our Book Meet, don’t forget to participate in our Twitter chat – #YARoomChat!
Even if you haven’t read Gap Year in Ghost Town you’re still more than welcome to join in. We’ll be talking all about our favourite ghost stories and books set in Melbourne. An hour of bookish fun!
We’re also super excited to be attending Michael Pryor’s launch of Gap Year in Ghost Town this Thursday night!
We love attending book launches – they’re always so much fun! Don’t forget to RSVP if you’re thinking of coming.
In other news, we’ll be helping to launch Ellie Marney’s latest novel, No Limits, this Friday night!
We were lucky enough to get an eARC of this glorious book, and we can assure you that this is a book that needs to be on your TBR. If you’ve read Every Breath – and even if you haven’t – you’re in for a treat! It’s spectacular, snarky, and so, so Australian.
We can’t wait to see you at all of these awesome upcoming events!
