Cranky Ladies of History – cover!

We are very fortunate to have had Kathleen Jennings create a stunning art piece for the cover of Cranky Ladies of History. Although Jim Hines did his best to inspire her at Continuum earlier this year (pictured here posing, with Kathleen looking on), she’s gone in a somewhat different direction. Sorry Jim!

While Amanda Rainey, our wonderful designer, will have things to add to make it even more special (and we still haven’t confirmed the colour yet), we can share the art itself now!

Reviews round up

Don’t forget to enter to win an exclusive Cranky Ladies of History calendar, designed by Tansy Rayner Roberts – these calendars are ONLY available through this giveaway, unless you were a clever campaign backer and got yours there! Competition closes tomorrow.

Speaking of Cranky Ladies, it’s very pleasing to see the anthology appearing on some “anticipated reads of 2015” lists (such as Tsana’s, here) – we’re in the final stages of edits for the book, and can’t wait to share it with you!

PhantazeinCoverA wonderful review of Phantazein from A Fantastical Librarian, where Mieneke says the book is “filled with fabulous stories from a strong and all-female line-up” and is “…entertaining and a joy to read”. Thank you, Mieneke!

Sean Wright also reviewed Phantazein recently, noting that “Phantazein showcases the depth of talent Australia has in the fantasy field…” Indeed!

The Bone Chime Song and Other Stories is unpacked a bit over at Peter Tennant’s new site Trumpetville – take a look at what he says here.

We really appreciate all the reviews from our readers – if you have read one of our books, please post (or cross-post) a review on Amazon or Goodreads, as they do help!
