I am extremely pleased to now be able to announce that my novella Pocket Wife is now available to purchase on-line as an e-book.
Published through Wellington’s indie Paper Road Press, it is the fourth edition of SHORTCUTS, a series of six locally-written novellas, coming out each month. You can buy mine at both Amazon and Kobo, or subscribe to get the whole the series for only $3.33 NZD per month.
Carl’s work requires him to travel extensively, but he and his wife Jenny stay connected through their Tinys – four-inch-tall replicas of themselves which, when turned on, transmit whatever sensory information they are receiving directly into their living counterparts’ minds. Through his Tiny, which Jenny keeps close beside her in Auckland, Carl can see his wife, speak to her, even feel her touch. But when Jenny’s Tiny malfunctions and she can’t turn herself off, Carl has a major problem. He’s having an affair, and he’d rather his wife wasn’t around.
And if that’s not enough to convince to go running (er, through the internet) to your nearest e-book emporium, why not read this free excerpt?
I also want to make a shout out to the artist Irene González Frizzera for the awesome cover art. It’s kinda freaky, no?
