Paradise Earth Official Launch

Following last year’s Black Summer fires—which devastated Kangaroo Island-based Publisher, Stormbird Press—a soft release of Paradise Earth went ahead, to meet existing commitments to international book awards. This proved to be the right decision as Paradise Earth won Gold in the Australia/NZ/Pacific Rim Best Regional fiction category in the 2020 Independent Publisher Awards and was honoured as a finalist in the literary fiction category of the 2020 International Book Awards.

To mark this year’s 25th anniversary of the 1996 Port Arthur massacre—the focus of Paradise Earth—today’s official launch sees the novel made widely available in hardcover, paperback, and e-book formats. 

On this significant anniversary, Paradise Earth, ‘an honest and unflinching guide to this most terrible of Australia’s hauntings…a novel of blazing and humbling integrity’, is a frontlist title from Stormbird Press, who publish works that convey Truth while empowering passionate readers and writers to stay in the long game.
