I’m so excited to reveal the cover and release date of my upcoming novella The Jindabyne Secret! How beautiful is the cover? I fell in love with it the moment my publisher showed it to me. I felt it captures The Jindabyne Secret and the main character Jax perfectly.
The Jindabyne Secret is part of the Drowned Earth series and follows 19-year-old Jax in a future dystopian Australian setting. With nothing but a map and a rickety solar truck, Jax journeys to the top secret fresh water facility at Lake Jindabyne – one of the few fresh water lakes left in Australia. What he discovers there could be the key to saving his whole community, as long as the government doesn’t kill him first.
The Jindabyne Secret will be released in DECEMBER 2019 in paperback and ebook format, but you can preorder your copy through Deadset Press’s kickstarter campaign. Not only can you preorder, but you can secure a signed copy or get some bonus Drowned Earth merchandise. This is a great way to support a small and fairly new Australian Press. They’ve been fantastic to work with and are passionate about promoting Australian speculative fiction and Australian authors. While there check out the free-to-read Drowned Earth prequel short story, plus blurbs from the other stories in the series.
