This site was designed in the very early days of the internet - right back in 1995 - and grew like Topsy. Now, it's very cumbersome and painstaking to change things around on it or to update individual pages. Why do we keep it at all? Because, in the "previews" section, over 500 self-published books we produced between 1993 and 1998 are reviewed and promoted - and we know the authors of those books want to keep them "alive".
NOTE: A WEBSITE CALLED "BOOKS AND WRITERS" HAS NO CONNECTION WITH WILD AND WOOLLEY.
About Book Publishing
There are around 200 book publishers in Australia who regularly produce new books for the Australian and international markets. Over 4000 new books come out each year.
Around half the people in Australia want to write a book and get it published. But with the national demand for new books limited to just 4000 titles, the odds are stacked against your book finding a publisher in your lifetime.

"Wilding at his absolute satirical best" - David Williamson
For 35 years, Michael Wilding led a double life: during the day, he was Professor of English at Sydney University; the rest of the time he wrote books.
He is one of Australia's most successful popular novelists.
His new novel is allusive, literate, pertinent and contemporary. It is a classic for our times.
