Wild Side Publishing: Big Success in Little Ruawai

Wild Side Publishing has amassed a catalogue of over forty titles – pretty impressive for a publisher run out of Ruawai while Auckland and Wellington book companies are struggling. 

Specialising in e-books and NZ Christian genre titles, Wild Side Publishing is operated by Ray and Janet Curle. Janet – under her Janet Balcombe name – did well with The Wild Side when it was released in 2016 and became a finalist in the Ashton Wylie book awards.

Janet’s story revolves around conquering “a feral meth addiction” in another life, which included kidnapping.
Janet says she didn’t know she was a writer until 2014 when what was then entitled Take a Walk on the Wild Side was published.

Janet also headed the 2017 collection Radical Lives Vol 1, a collection of true stories, with Vol 2 soon to be released.

    My brother Neil has just given me a book of Bruce’s biography. Just tell him that I am gobsmacked.
    Absolutely fantastic.
