Carousel has been featured on Six Thousand’s website and newsletter this week.
“Who knows – this piece of fiction could easily be turned into a “handbook” of how-to-survive-Carousel, apocalypse or not.”
Head on over and sign up to their newsletter if you haven’t already.
The launch for Brendan’s debut novel Carousel is fast approaching. The party will kick off this Saturday the 23rd of May at 4pm inside MANY 6160.
The more the merrier – there will be drinks, nibbles & signings abound.
You’re invited to the launch of Carousel on Saturday 23rd May at 4pm.
The launch will be at Fremantle City Library’s Reading Room in MANY 6160. MANY gave the abandoned Myer building a new life housing a variety of creative retailers, and Brendan thinks there couldn’t be a more suitable location to launch his debut novel.
“I’m thrilled to be launching my first novel in MANY. As an ex-shopping centre reclaimed by creativity, the parallels to Carousel are brilliant. It’s an iconic Fremantle building and the perfect place to send Carousel out into the world.”
Carousel will be launched by Marcella Polain.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can make it.
Please note: The Outdoor Reading Room moves inside MANY for the cooler months of the year.
Brendan was featured in this week’s editions of the Fremantle Gazette and Melville Times.

“I adored the emphasis that was put on art in this book. Everything came back to art. The characters were always reading or listening to music or making music or writing, and I appreciated that the author found artists to be of utmost importance.”
Belle of Belle’s Beautiful Books has reviewed Carousel ahead of its release. You can read her 5 star review over on her blog.
Brendan has been interviewed for Fremantle Press’ The Classroom Express.
In the interview Brendan discusses his novel Carousel, and how life might be like for Generation Y without the Internet.
“I’m not sure if art would be better if we were all offline. In a lot of ways I think the internet can really foster creativity. We might be more productive though. Carousel also explores how art can be influenced by our circumstances. For Nox and co. these circumstances are quite bizarre and not being able to jump onto Facebook or YouTube is certainly a big part of that.”
