Graeme Aitken is best known for his two previous bestselling novels '50 Ways of Saying Fabulous' and 'Vanity Fierce, published by Random House Australia and by Hodder Headline in the UK. '50 Ways of Saying Fabulous' was adapted into a feature film in New Zealand and was an official selection for the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival. It also became a popular hit on the queer film festival circuit. Most recently Graeme has been writing and self-publishing his own e-books (‘The Indignities’ series and ‘Top Mark’).
In addition to his work as an author, Graeme has also worked as the manager of Sydney’s specialist LGBT bookshop for the past 23 years. There are now only a handful of these shops left in the world. With all this experience, he is an Australian authority on LGBT books/writing and he edited 'The Penguin Book of Gay Australian Writing' in 2002. Graeme is also extremely knowledgeable about publishing (he has experience with all facets – mainstream, small press, and indie self-publishing) and the current state of the publishing/bookselling industry.
Graeme likes to share topical information about writing, GLBT literature, books, publishing, and bookselling on social media.
