Speculative fiction publisher Talem Press launches first book

New speculative fiction publisher Talem Press, an imprint of the online writers’ platform Writer’s Edit, will release its first book on 31 August.

Heart of Mist is the first book in a YA fantasy trilogy by Helen Scheurer, the founding editor of Writer’s Edit. It will be officially launched at Sydney bookstore Better Read than Dead on 2 September.

Talem Press will publish ‘stories that empower—exciting, adventurous fantasy books with a focus on female agency’. Scheuerer said she ‘believes that Australian voices and stories are important and need to be heard, especially ones that provide younger generations with positive influences’.
