Announcing the sequel to Horn: Bleed by Peter M Ball

Bleed by Peter M Ball
Cover art by Dion Hamill, design by Amanda Rainey

For ten years ex-cop Miriam Aster has been living with her one big mistake – agreeing to kill three men for the exiled Queen of Faerie. But when an old case comes back to haunt her it brings a spectre of the past with it, forcing Aster to ally herself with a stuntwoman and a magic cat in order to rescue a kidnapped TV star from the land of Faerie and stop the half-breed sorcerer who needs Aster’s blood.

Ten years ago Miriam Aster learnt a simple lesson: when a faerie asks you to kill someone, the worst thing you can say is sure. Today she’s about to learn that worse things can happen when the past refuses to stay behind you.

Bleed will be available at Aussiecon 4 in Melbourne, September 2010 and is now available for preorder:

Novella: Bleed


Glitter Rose by Marianne de Pierres

Glitter Rose

Cover art by Anna Repp, design by Amanda Rainey

The Glitter Rose quartet is set against the stunning background of Carmine Island where a decade ago spores from deep in the ocean blew in by a freak of nature and settled there. Their strange phosphorescence brings a glitter rose dusk at certain tides. Colourless at first, the sandy beaches rapidly become carpets of tiny, shining, rose-coloured grains as the sky darkens after sunset. These spores bring fierce allergies to the island locals. And maybe other, more sinister effects too. Follow Tinashi’s journey as she moves to the island, settles into island life and begins to discover just what is really happening on Carmine Island.
If you are coming to these elegant, truthful and sensuous stories for the first time I envy you. They’ll haunt your dreams, yes, but what fabulous dreams. - Trent Jamieson

thank you!

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who has sent me an email, provided feedback or proofing or turned in something to me in the last couple of days. I'm pretty much snowed under and running out of time most days. I'm struggling but I hope to get back up to date soon.

The first of my books should be at the printers tomorrow and the second by tomorrow night so I think that should mean less work ... like it should but I'm sure it won't.
