My contributor’s copies have arrived for two books. The covers of both are brilliant!
Pandemonium Press (the amazing Jared Shurin and Anne C Perry)
Grimscribe’s Puppets (Miskatonic River Press, edited by Joe S. Pulver)
How gorgeous is this cover for The Gate Theory? Cohesion Press’s Geoff Brown is the designer.
Finally, I hope those of you in Canberra or nearby will be about to join me and my dear friend, Norwegian writer Anne Ostby, for an event at the Paperchain bookstore.

The Town of Love exposes the hidden dark side of India: a workforce of trafficked girls and women forced to offer their bodies for sale to feed their families. It is a legacy of prostitution, a tradition handed down from one generation to the next. But can Tamanna break free and create a new life for herself and her daughter? This breathtaking novel explores the possibilities of empowering women to change their situation as well as highlighting the obstacles they face in a society resistant to change.
Anne Ostby is a Norwegian writer of books for adults and young people who previously worked as a journalist. She is a guest at the 2013 Melbourne Writers’ Festival.
