‘And Then…’ anthology available for pre-order
If you like genre/adventure stories, you might like to support this anthology of Australian and New Zealand adventures, each featuring some kind of adventuresome duo.
My story, Virgin Soil, teams a young man with magical powers with a shapeshifter, a man-turned-rat-or-vice-versa. Some people might think they’re black magicians, and possibly they are, but someone has to do the dirty work, even on the side of the good guys. It’s set in 1851 during Melbourne’s gold rush years and involves virgin sacrifice – but maybe not the type you’re thinking of.
Get in early for a 25% discount on the price of the two-volume anthology (featuring amazing ANZ writers like Alison Goodman (Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club), Kerry Greenwood (Phryne Fisher novels), Sulari Gentill (Hero Trilogy), Cameron Ashley (Crime Factory editor), and Jason Franks (Blood Waters).
