The books keep arriving from SuperNOVA — and this week they come from Jason Nahrung. Blood & Dust and The Big Smoke together form Vampires in the Sunburnt Country — a duo of (horror? thriller? adventure?) books about vampires in Queensland.
Blood & Dust
And then the vampires arrive, leaving his life like road kill in their wake.
Caught between vicious nomadic bikers and their brutal foes from the coast, Kevin fights to save not only those he holds dearest, but his own soul.
But how far will he go to save the people he loves?
The Big Smoke
Kevin Matheson is coming to Brisbane with revenge on his mind. Even for a vampire, there is no time like the present. He has a score to settle with Mira, the sadistic killer who tore his life in outback Queensland apart.
For Mira’s bodyguard, Reece, worn out and fading a little more each day, the present is all he has. He is determined to spend it protecting his mistress, for better or worse.
But, as the two men head for a collision, the vampires of Brisbane have their own plans – plans that will lead Kevin and Reece down roads they never expected to travel.
And at the end of the line, at the intersection of loyalty and vengeance, both face the question: who are they willing to sacrifice to win the war?
SuperNOVArian Jane Routley has a new e-book out from Clan Destine Press!
Described as a historical fantasy with feisty female characters, The Three Sisters is a tale about three sisters, estranged from the Society they are destined to save.
Elena, more beautiful than any man can resist, is kidnapped, her destiny controlled by the men who desire her. Yani, warrior woman, brave, strong, able to pass as a man, who will do anything to find Elena. Marigoth, powerful female mage, determined never to grow up, equally committed to finding their missing sister. In a country oppressed and cruelly ruled, the fate of many people lies in the unsuspecting hands of these three women.
Two times Aurealis award winner Jane Routley lives in Melbourne. She has published short stories, articles and a blog about working on a railway station. This is her fourth published novel, available for the first time in Australia.
Some exciting news from Aussie pubslisher, Clan Destine Press, with the announcement that they have signed up a number of SuperNOVA authors.
From the website:
- Jason Nahrung, very well known in the darker corners of the spec-fic world, is bringing two action vampire novels to CDP. Blood and Dust and The Big Smoke are action-packed very-Australian novels that form the Outback Vampire Mechanic duology. They will be out in paperback and eBook very soon.
- Pete Aldin – Eventide is just the kind of cross-genre extravaganza that we love here at CDP. It’s a sci-fi crime thriller. Eventide is Pete’s debut novel but he’s been out in the world writing short fiction for a few years and is a member of the Chelsea Dark Fiction Writers’ Circle.
- David McDonald – Cold Comfort joins the Clan Destine Fictions imprint for short stories and short collections. We’re hoping David has more to add!
