Support #VicWriters – 2020 Debuts

If you’re interested in supporting Victoria-based writers who have put a debut novel out in 2020, then this is the list for you!

Please consider buying one or more (or all!) of the books on this list from your local bookshop (https://www.booksellers.org.au/find-a-bookshop) – or even a Victoria-based one, if you can. Penguin Random House has put together this excellent Click for Vic resource to support Victoria’s independent bookshops.

(If you’re a Victoria-based writer who would like your 2020 debut novel to be added to this list, please complete the form at the bottom of the page.)
