My new book has come back from the printers. Opening paragraph:
Danyl stepped off the bus then stepped away as it pulled out from the kerb, splashing up sheets of spray. Its tail lights mixed with the lights reflected in the wet black streets. The hiss of its tyres mixed with the rain.
And the rain was cold. So cold. He took shelter under a leaky shop awning and watched the bus continue to the end of Aro Street then turn left and vanish. It was just past midnight. Mid-winter. He’d been away for six long months, but now he was back.
Back in the worst place in the world.
The launch party will be at Unity Books Wellington on the evening of June 14th. Everyone is welcome! Even everyone from the comments section!
