Erin Donohue shares the story behind her best-selling YA novel
We are excited to have recently launched Erin Donohue’s Because Everything Is Right but Everything Is Wrong.

This powerful coming-of-age story follows 17-year-old Caleb Evans as he struggles to hold his life together while everything around him is falling apart.
It comes as no surprise to us that it was recently the 2nd highest-selling New Zealand children’s fiction title on the Nielsen bestseller list.

There was barely a dry eye in the house as Erin shared the experiences that inspired her novel; we are sure you will be moved by her speech too.

'I write because I love writing. I love the power it has, and the profound effect it can have on a reader. I love feeling that irreversible feeling that I get when I read a great book and I love it when others feel that after reading my work.'

Look for the special deal on this novel.

Open Your Eyes, Jackson Ryder by Rudy Castañeda López
Girls, death and a passion for art. Fifteen-year-old Jackson Ryder is dealing with all of it – in the melting pot that is California in the 1960s, in an era of assassination, the Civil Rights Movement and The Beatles.

Run Thomas Run by Kate Carty
Iraq,1991. There are no such things as coincidences. Informants are everywhere and once you’ve had a run-in with Saddam’s regime, your only chance of survival is escape. A timeless novel about fear, dictatorship, refugees and a supposed 'new life'.

The Shark Party by Janet Colson
Ambition. Attraction. Seduction. Janet Colson’s psychological drama set in the unscrupulous and illusory world of art is an evocative tale of possession and freedom. For lovers of a good story and lovers of art.

Changes at Escalator Press
Escalator Press has been publishing distinctive New Zealand fiction for four years, and it is time to take a step back, look at how far we’ve come and look to where we are going in the future. Thanks to Michael Moynahan, who spent an extremely productive Saturday with us, we have a smart way forward. We’re looking forward to sharing some exciting changes in the new year, so watch this space!
Farewell to Paul Greenberg
Since Escalator Press began, Greene Phoenix Marketing has been our trusted distributor and sales representative into bookstores across New Zealand. Come the end of the year, owner and operator Paul Greenberg, with his partner Joan Roulston, will be beginning a well-earned retirement. From the start, we have valued the advice and encouragement Paul has given us – all in his absolutely distinctive and energetic way. Meanwhile, working behind the scenes, Joan has provided dependable administrative backup. We are very grateful for all their work, and wish them well in their retirement.
