Congratulations to ACWA writer Michael Robotham for the long-listing of SAY YOU'RE SORRY in the 2013 Gold Dagger category.
In August, as part of the BYRON BAY WRITERS FESTIVAL the ACWA will be releasing our first publication IF I TELL YOU, I'LL HAVE TO KILL YOU, published by Allen & Unwin. Crime fiction is the single most popular genre in international publishing and Australia has some of the finest practitioners when it comes to walking the mean streets and nailing the bad guys.
The Australian Crime Writers’ Association (ACWA) today announces the launch of its website dedicated to the promoting of crime, thriller and mystery writing in Australia.
