• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:


    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

     

     

The Captain’s Log is born

Well we’ve chosen a name for the revamped and wonderful Voyager E-newsletter, which will be hitting your inboxes in August. So be on the look out for the Captain’s Log, because as we all know, voyagers need a good captain to steer their ship – whether it be on land, sea, space or through the sentences and chapters of a book … and said captain must detail their courses for all the future adventurers (to remove from the captain’s dead hand at an opportune and later moment). Plus, we all secretly deep down have a certain amount of love for Mr Shatner, may he star in Boston Legal forever.

What can you expect to see in the newsletter?

Well. You’ll just have to wait and see, won’t you? That might be a good reason to watch this space … and I have recently learned the art of spoilers from a master at the Voyager Book Club Chat.

There will be good stuff though, vair vair good stuff, which I am almost about to give away, so I’d better wrap this post up.

Keep a look out over the next weeks for free wallpapers for download at Voyager Central (by which I mean http://www.voyageronline.com.au of course) and for a Q&A with Jack Dann to celebrate the release of Dreaming Again. There will be more posts from Traci Harding (one coming up very soon) on writing, our usual (but unique) fabulous Fallon Friday from Jennifer Fallon, who must be needing some R&R post-Supanova … but has her next book, The Chaos Crystal, coming out in December, and there’s much much more! Also note that this July Traci Harding will be doing some books signings as her new book, The Black Madonna, is out – check the News and Events page for full details.

T. signing off.
