The Book of Hat – the launch

The Book of Hat by Harriet Rowland is out in the world after a glittering launch on February 19 at Park Road Post Production in Miramar. Harriet posts on it here.

Everyone felt privileged to be there and especially to hear Harriet stand and read from her book. The Book of Hat is available at the Children’s Bookshop, Kilbirnie, at all good bookstores (if they don’t have it, ask) or email us at We have sold out of two print runs already and one more is on its way. $500 has already gone to CanTeen as per Hat’s wish. Congratulations, Harriet, it’s an amazing book. 





Talking about publishing…

We’re featured on Lynn Freeman’s new radio show on Radio New Zealand National tomorrow (Sunday Jan 26) 2.35 pm. Here’s the blurb:

‘Emerging publishers: In the wake of the all the huge changes big publishers are making to their New Zealand operations, numerous small publishing houses are emerging. 

Writer, tutor and reviewer Mary McCallum is behind one of them – Makaro Press.’
