cedar valley is out today

Sep 26 2018

Cedar Valley is out TODAY in all good Australian bookstores, as a digital download, and on audiobook. I hope you all enjoy it very much.

More reviews have come in. The Sunday Times (WA) said: ‘[Cedar Valley] delivers in spades. . . Throsby’s rich characterisation left this reader feeling as though she’d made lifelong friends by the final page.’ And Readings said, ‘In Cedar Valley Holly Throsby has crafted a quiet mystery which brims with the energy of its characters’ inner lives. . . What is wonderful about Cedar Valley is the sense of a complete community. Throsby keeps a skilful pace, checking in with the towns inhabitants, both old and new. She moves you along so well at the pace of the people of Cedar Valley that you do not realise straightaway the ways in which she is subverting the expectations of the small-town mystery. . . a very satisfying journey.’

Cedar Valley book tour

Sep 14 2018

To celebrate the release of my second novel, Cedar Valley, I will be doing a series of in-conversation book events in October in NSW, QLD, VIC and SA. See here for dates, locations and ticket info.

Also, the first review of the book has come in from the good people at Books + Publishing. It says: ‘This is a masterful novel . . . Cedar Valley is written with an assured hand and is essential reading for those who like their Australian rural tales with a touch of mystery. Readers who loved Goodwood will find even more to love here.’ Four stars. Thanks, B+P!

Cedar Valley will be in all good bookstores from September 26.

a show with sally & sarah

Sep 13 2018

I’m playing a special one-off show with my dear Seeker Lover Keeper pals, Sarah Blasko and Sally Seltmann, on October 27 at St Stephens Church in Newtown. This show is a fundraiser for the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, and all proceeds from ticket sales go to people doing it tough in the inner west. The three of us will be performing a short solo set each, and then…who knows what might happen? See you there.

Cedar Valley

Jun 03 2018

I am very excited to announce that my second novel, Cedar Valley, is coming out on September 26 via the good people at Allen & Unwin. Set a year later (1993) in a town nearby Goodwood, this is not a sequel but a kind of ‘companion’ to my first novel, and a completely standalone story. I thoroughly enjoyed writing it, and I hope you enjoy reading it too. You can find more information about Cedar Valley here. Thank you to Sandy Cull at gogoGinko for the awesome cover.

 

shop

Thanks to everyone has written asking where they can buy actual physical copies of music. I love records and CDs, so I can relate. For See! on new-release softpack CD with lyric booklet, or for After a Time on 12″ vinyl, visit my bandcamp. I can sign them before posting, if you so desire.

happy new year

Jan 10 2018

I am taking a break from music and locking myself away in order to write another novel. May you all be safe and well as we embark on a new year. If you’re looking for something to do with your spare time, I would suggest mindfulness meditation and after dinner exercise. A great book to read (my favourite of 2017) is Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. And find yourself a good magnesium supplement. Cheerio.

FAIRGROUNDS

I’m sorry to say that I am sick with pneumonia, and sadly I have had to cancel my performance at Fairgrounds Festival this Saturday. Luckily, my bestie Sally Seltmann is going to be taking my place. She will be a treat for all in Berry. My apologies to all.

Australian Music Prize

I am very happy that After a Time has been longlisted for this year’s Australian Music Prize. It’s a fantastic longlist, including some of my favourite records of the past year. Thanks to all the judges.
