The True Tales Story

The True Tales books, first started off in 1989, when a few historically-minded Coromandel Town citizens had the idea of a short story book about the area.  In 1990 it was published as ‘True Tales of Northern Coromandel’ and sold out very quickly.


It’s a simple but effective format of about 100 true short stories relating to the particular town/community and area.  Each story is up to 1500 words long and also has a few old photographs included to help tell the tale.


There are an unlimited number of stories out there and a vast untapped wealth of knowledge about so many towns and communities in NZ.  Why not get on board and produce your own ‘True Tales’ publication?
