We’ll be discussing PEACEMAKER and MYTHMAKER, published by Angry Robot Books.

I’ve been working away on various stories and I decided to have some placeholder covers made for them by Austin Designworks. This gives you an idea of what’s coming, and helps me focus on the finish line.

Firstly, my PhD novel, A Once and Future Past, which is a feminist time travel novel set both in the future and in 1400’s France. The protagonist, Ella West, mingles with Christine de Pizan, Yolande of Aragon, and Joan of Arc.

This is followed by a family biography entitled The Lost American Prince: the splendid life of Colonel Herman Thorn. Fascinating, wonderful story.

My Review: Virgin Jackson is back in the second instalment of Marianne De Pierres’ Peacemaker series. This one’s just as action packed as the first, as gun-toting ranger, Virgin, aided by the taciturn US cowboy Nate Sixkiller, her spirit animal and her possibly psychotic self-appointed bodyguard, Hamish, set out to discover the truth about the Mythos. She’s got a mystery to solve and her name to clear, and a bounty and a murder rap both hang over her head. Beautifully written and tightly paced, De Pierres’ novel takes us from wild, open spaces to cramped city slums and back again. Urban Fantasy meets sci-fi, meets western, this is a book that will grip you from start to finish. Yee-haa!

Grab it here (Amazon) or support local Australian bookshops, and grab it here (Booktopia)
