It is with great pleasure that we announce the acquisition of Wicked by Blood: The Kingfisher’s Debt by New Zealand author, Kura Carpenter. The novel is an urban fantasy set in contemporary Dunedin, New Zealand, with a captivating mix of fantasy, mystery, murder and satanic rituals. It is scheduled for release in the second half of 2018 – more specific dates will be determined early next year.
“Aside from having written a rip-roaring fantasy, ” said IFWG Managing Director, Gerry Huntman, “we were captivated by a story with such a strong female protagonist. We are also chuffed to add to our New Zealand author base.”
Kura enjoys reading, calligraphy, designing fabric and constructing miniature furniture from ice-block sticks. She has a greyhound, several chickens, and may or may not have an elderly ninja cat at the time of reading. She sews Victorian and Regency outfits, because she’s a writer and, hello, not very practical. She also collects vintage sewing machines, but if her husband asks, she’s storing them for a friend.
