My first collection of short stories, "Last Year, When We Were Young" has been released into the wild by Satalyte Publishing, and getting some wonderful reviews.
"McKiernan is a magician. He performs magic tricks in every story, spinning us around, making us believe one thing before showing us we were wrong all along. His stories are pure magic, staying with you like an echo long after reading." - Kaaron Warren, author of Slights & Walking the Tree
"Last Year When We Were Young, is proof yet again of the incredible writing talent that can be found in Australia and further still, proof that horror can have a meaningful voice that goes well beyond blood and gore." - Greg Chapman, Thirteen O'Clock
"A troubling collection of weird and twisted tales. Sometimes funny, sometimes horrifying; always clever, always disturbing. Highly entertaining!" - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of CODE ZERO
"The sixteen tales in the collection draw inspiration from a variety of genres and styles, with the magically humorous juxtaposed against the frightfully repulsive, but each story has something in common: they are all hauntingly clever." - Alayna Cole, www.mariannedepierres.com
As you can imagine, I'm immensely happy with the reception so far, but I'd love to see the collection in the hands of more readers...and which author wouldn't want that for their book?
This is why Satalyte Publishing are running a...
Last Year, When We Were Young
Early Bird E-Book Deal!
Here's the skinny: Starting midnight August 1st, 'Last Year, When We Were Young' will drop in price (on Amazon, worldwide) from $5.99 AUD to only $0.99 AUD!
But hurry! That deal will only last for 48 HOURS! After that, the price will go up to $2.99 AUD... which is still cheap, considering the original price and the number of tales (16, some of which are novelettes).
BUT... you've only got 48 HOURS to take advantage of that deal too. After that, on August 5th, the price goes back to $5.99 AUD.
So, the quicker you get in, the cheaper you get your digital copy of "Last Year, When We Were Young"!
See, the Early Bird gets the worm! ...or the cicada nymph maybe?
Here's the timetable:
- August 1st - August 2nd: $0.99 AUD
- August 3rd - August 5th: $2.99 AUD
- August 5th: $5.99 AUD
