If you registered your book for the 2016 catalogue, please keep an eye on your inbox for updates.


All registrations are subject to eligibility. QWC reserves the right to vet registrations according to the below guidelines.

Is your book eligible for the 2016 catalogue?

  • Must be a new work published in 2016, either in print or as an ebook (revised or new editions are not eligible)
  • Must have an ISBN-13 or ASIN
  • Must be available for purchase via retailers, the author or online
  • Author must be a Queensland resident, or have primary residence in Queensland for a period of one year up to and including the date of registration

If your work was not originally published in 2016, you may still be eligible to register your book for the Books From Our Backyard online database, which will shortly be open to registrations for books published in any year. The database is currently under construction, but you can keep up-to-date on its progress by subscribing to QWC’s weekly e-newsletter.
