Ida

I am absolutely delighted to tell you that I have signed a contract with Echo Publishing for my novel IDA, to be released in Jan 2017. I wrote the first draft in 2011, if you’ve been following me on twitter then you’ve probably seen me talk about it BUT I thought I would post something here as well.

ida

Ida is a figuring out what to do with her life. This is complicated by the fact that she has the ability to live out the alternatives to the choices she makes, by travelling between parallel universes. This has never really been a problem until one day when she sees a shadowy, see-through doppelganger of herself on the train. Is Ida actually in control of her ability? And how far will she stray from her original path before she realises there are no choices left?

This is an intelligent and entertaining novel that explores love and loss, and speaks to the contemporary condition of an array of overwhelming, and often illusory, possibilities.

So it’s a very fun book, lots of MYSTERY and whatnot. (And of course there are many queers in it because why wouldn’t there be. Also a fun fact: there are six main charcaters and four of them are trans, something I’m noting because 1. it is important for trans characters to be present and 2. it is trans day of visibility!)

wolfskin

Wolfskin is a short story I started writing while travelling, then finished at home. It’s about a girl who has no heart who finds a girl who is also a wolf in the middle of Fitzroy.

Below are the first 4 pages, if you like them you can get a PDF of the whole thing for whatever price you want (even free! neat!!!) over at gumroad, or get a physical copy in my etsy shop.

(Pls note there is a tiny bit of nsfw content!)

updates: interviews, zines and a new book coming

EXCITING TIMES, FRIENDS

  • a while back I was interviewed in Wordly magazine about LM+M, you can read it on issuu
  • Concrete Queers, the super fun queer zine I am co-editor of now has a funky fresh facebook page
  • I also opened an etsy shop for all your queer, navel-gazey zine needs
  • AND I signed a contract for We Go Forward with LT3 Press. Their Solitary Travellers collection is a bunch of rad stories about asexual and/or aromantic characters. We Go Forward is about a girl called Christie who meets a girl called Roslyn in Berlin while they’re both travelling. Set in Berlin, Prague, Munich and Salzberg, this one’s pretty neat and it’s about my favourite topic: cities. LT3 are a romance press but for this call specifically the romance factor was waived, so this ain’t a romance. BUT IT’S FAB, trust.
