• 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!

     

     

Congratulations to Glenda Larke and Tansy Rayner Roberts

A huge congratulations to Glenda Larke and Tansy Rayner Robert who are both shortlisted for the Aurealis Award for Best Fantasy Novel this year.

Of course, we think they BOTH deserve an award.

Join in the fun at the Aurealis Awards and see Australia’s best fantasy writers in their finest feathers in Sydney later this year, when the awards will be announced.

In a dry land, water is gold ...

In a dry land, water is gold ...

 Glenda is nominated for Stormlord Rising, the second book in the Watergivers trilogy.

 Shale Flint is forced to help the devious rainlord, Taquar Sardonyx, in his quest to create rain – even though Taquar’s lust for power threatens to consume all that stands in his path.
Terelle leaves the Scarpen with her great-grandfather, Russet … his painting of her future has trapped her into doing his will. Obsessed with regaining his status as a Watergiver lord in his homeland, it seems that Russet will go to any lengths to attain his goal.
Meanwhile, Ryka Feldspar has been captured and taken as a concubine by a Reduner tribemaster. Desperate to escape, she discovers her Rainlord husband, Kaneth, in the slave lines … but, to Ryka’s despair, he has no memories of their time together.

Tansy is nominated for Power and Majesty, the first book in the Creature Court trilogy.

Enter the world of the Creature Court ...

 She almost missed the sight of a naked youth falling out of the sky. He was long and lean and muscled … He was also completely off his face.
A war is being fought in the skies over the city of Aufleur. No one sees the battles. No one knows how close they come to destruction every time the sun sets.
During daylight, all is well, but when nox falls and the sky turns bright, someone has to step up and lead the Creature Court into battle. Twelve years ago, Garnet kissed Velody and stole her magic. Five years ago, he betrayed Ashiol, and took his powers by force. But now the Creature Court is at a crossroads … they need a Power and Majesty who won’t give up or lose themselves in madness …
