Small Press & Self-Published / Quantum Zoo--An Indie Anthology
« on: May 28, 2014, 12:32:47 AM »
Just spreading the word about an anthology that's coming out shortly, if anyone's interested. It contains 12 stories (SF/fantasy) based around the prompt of "Zoo".

It contains the first short story of mine that's been picked up, so I'm very excited about it.

The idea behind it is that the authors participating get some exposure, but also that any proceeds get pumped back into marketing and promotion so that we can see which channels are most effective.

It has a cracking cover and a supporting website here http://quantumzoo.blogspot.co.uk/ where you can read extracts from all of the stories. You'll find alien encounters, Egyptian deities, and my own ghost theme park. Pop over and see what you think!

On an island where a volcano powers magic, a shapechanger’s future is threatened by his people’s rebellion. Labelled a traitor, with his lover now his enemy, his passion for healing must come second to survival.

The first novel in my series is on Kindle Countdown Deal Monday-Thursday this week. It starts at $0.99/£0.99 and goes back up to its regular price (by increments in the US and in one step in the UK, because of how KCD works) on Friday.

Crowchanger is a traditional fantasy which beta readers and reviewers have been kind enough to compare favourably with McCaffrey's Pern novels and Le Guin's A Wizard of Earthsea. So if you like fantasy, but are put off by 600 page, 12 volume epics, this might be to your liking. Fans of epic fantasy will find much that's familiar too, but without the hefty wordcount!

This series will ultimately comprise three novels (book 2 out in 3-4 weeks, book 3 in revisions), 2 novellas, and a sprinkling of short stories.
