NEW YORK - May 21, 2014 - PRLog -- The author’s recent historical novel about life in the Australian Outback will be represented at BEA by publisher Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency, along with its sister companies Author Marketing Ideas and Print on Demand Global.  This trio of companies represents thousands of authors’ work at book fairs and expos around the world, negotiating rights sales for both digital and print catalogues. BEA is considered the No. 1 book and author event in the U.S. and will be held May 29-31 at the Javits Center in New York City.

Says Australian author Clive Thomas,“In 2006 after I retired from being what you call a rancher and we call a ‘grazier,’ breeding sheep for wool and meat, my wife Katherine and I moved from Forbes, an inland town in New South Wales, like Kangamite (the town in the book), to the seaside. When I’d completed my memoir, I found I’d conjured up many characters from my past who belonged to an extinct species. They weren’t going to rest until I’d told their tales.”

His saga of a world long gone comes alive in his powerful adventure novel. Meet foundling Peter Tobin, who lived in a vanished age, a time when the wide Australian outback was opening up to the force of railroads, steam power, visionary builders, and determined men who wanted to claim this vital continent.In the remote outback of the late 19th century, Tobin makes his own way in the world, eventually becoming a wealthy land owner. Thursday’s Child is the story of how the Australian Outback was won.

About the Author: Clive Thomas, who worked the land for half a century, spent his childhood years among the last of these rich characters, the Australian Bushmen. He has woven their campfire yarns into the tumultuous life story of Peter Tobin, covering the last decades of the 19th century to the end of World War II. He’s already written the book’s sequel covering the years 1948 to the 1970s.
