Artwork: Alison Buck
Tanya Reimer’s first novel, Ghosts on the Prairies, a Sacred Land Story will be published in an eBook edition on the 25th July 2014.

The prairies of 1916-19 come alive with bootleggers, slavery, fools in sheets, haunting spirits, shifty tunnel runners, and even exploding churches. Ghosts on the Prairies is alternative history suspense incorporating the paranormal and infused with romance.

This suspenseful and beautifully written story concerns the interwoven loves, hopes, dreams and tragedies of lives lived in backwater towns and isolated farmsteads of the US-Canadian border lands, where hard work, lawlessness and harsh, summary punishment are a way of life. A network of secret underground tunnels, linking the controlled and controlling world to the south with the Sacred Lands of the Ghost tribes across the border to the north, offers the possibility of escape and freedom.

It will be available in popular eBook formats from all good eBook retailers.

Launch of Future Perfect in Saffron Walden @ Intelligent Penguin
Dec 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Future Perfect cover imageKatrina MountfortKatrina Mountfort will be launching her debut novel Future Perfect on the evening of December 11th in Saffron Walden at Intelligent Penguin in Gold Street.

Future Perfect is the first book in the Blueprint Trilogy which takes us to a future in which men and women are almost identical, and personal relationships are forbidden. Following a bio-terrorist attack, the population now lives within comfortable Citidomes. MindValues advocate acceptance and non-attachment. The BodyPerfect cult encourages a tall thin androgynous appearance, and looks are everything. A dark undercurrent runs through the trilogy: the enforcement of conformity through fear, the fostering of distorted and damaging attitudes towards forbidden love, manipulation of appearance and even the definition of beauty. Join Katrina to celebrate the launch of her book with a drink, hear a reading, buy a copy and have it signed! What better way to spend a December evening?

It’s also worth saying a big thank you to Intelligent Penguin, a digital agency, who offered the use of their venue in exchange for a donation to a charity of Katrina’s choice. In keeping with the themes of the book, Katrina chose Beat, a charity providing helplines, online support and a network of UK-wide self-help groups to help adults and young people in the UK beat their eating disorders.

theDark shall do what Light cannot — publication as eBook
Apr 9 – Apr 10 all-day

the Dark shall do what Light cannot, the latest novel from Sanem Ozdural and the second in the LiGa series, will be published in an eBook edition on the 10th April 2015.

Artwork: Alison Buck
Artwork: Alison Buck

There is a place called Pera which lies beyond the Light Veil, on the other side of reality. There are light trees there that eat sunlight and bear fruit which, in turn, lights up and energises (literally) the community of Pera. There are light birds that glitter in the night because they have eaten the seed of the lightberry. The House of Light and Dark, which is the domain of the Sun and her brother, Twilight, welcomes all creatures living in Pera. But in the midst of all the glitter, laughter and the songs, it must be remembered that the lightberry is poisonous to the non-Pera born, and the Land is afraid when the Sun retreats, for it is then that Twilight walks the streets…

With some of the characters that we originally met in LiGa™, Sanem Ozdural’s first novel, the Dark shall do what Light cannot transports us from New York to the colourful and wonderful world of Pera. On the way we meet the pirate Patron and her ship the Flying Fish, the only one that can sail through the Light Veil; Orion (Imm.), the Hunter, respected by some and feared by others; and Shadow, the formidable soul of Pera.

the Dark shall do what Light cannot will be available in popular eBook formats from all good eBook retailers.

Sailor to a Siren publication as eBook
Jul 16 – Jul 17 all-day

Sailor to a Siren, the debut novel from Zoë Sumra and a great introduction to her universe, will be published in an eBook edition on the 17th July 2015. A space opera novel with significant nods to the gangland thriller genre, Sailor to a Siren establishes Zoë as a name to watch in epic space opera.

Artwork: Alison Buck
Artwork: Alison Buck

When Connor and Logan Cardwain, a gangster’s lieutenants, steal a shipment of high-grade narcotics on the orders of their boss, Connor dreams of diverting the profits and setting up in business for himself. His plans encounter a hurdle in the form of Éloise Falavière, Logan’s former girlfriend, who has been hired by an interplanetary police force’s vice squad.

Logan wants a family; Éloise wants to stop the drugs shipment from being sent to her home planet; Connor wants to gain independence without angering his boss. All of their plans are derailed, though, when they discover that the shipment was hiding a much deadlier secret – the prototype of a tiny superweapon powerful enough to destabilise galactic peace.

Crime lords, corrupt officials and interstellar magicians are soon pursuing them, and Connor, Logan and Éloise realise they have to identify and confront the superweapon’s smuggler in order to survive. But when, one by one, their friends begin to betray them, their self-imposed mission transforms from being difficult to near-impossible.

Sailor to a Siren will be available in popular eBook formats from all good eBook retailers.

Sailor to a Siren – Launch party @ Novacon 45

Zoë SumraOn Saturday morning from 11-12 in the Downstairs Bar we’ll be launching Sailor to a Siren by Zoë Sumra. This is a space opera novel with significant nods to the gangland thriller genre. It’s a great debut from Zoë and establishes her as a name to watch in epic space opera. The depth of her characters, the breadth of her world-building, the ambition and longevity of her story-arcs spanning multiple generations of families, all make this a first step in what is likely to be a fascinating and enthralling universe. As Jaine Fenn said “If you like your space opera fast and violent, this book is for you”.

There will be drinks, books and Zoë (obviously – although as she’s very pregnant at the moment I suppose there’s a chance she might go into labour early and have to give it a miss).
