Just a quick note to let y’all know that Next anthology from the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild is now available for purchase. It contains my story “Wooden Heart”.

“Wooden Heart” is a fantasy tale about a young woman called Raisa who is betrothed to marry a tree. She leads a sheltered existence, kept and guarded by a religious community of Sisters who are using Raisa (and the tree) to further their own shadowy plans. Raisa’s one act of rebellion proves to have unexpected consequences for all.

When we were planning to move from New Zealand to Australia, we thought at first that we would be moving to Canberra, and I got quite excited at the prospect of being able to join the CSFG. We ended up in Melbourne, so no CSFG for me, but being included in a CSFG anthology is a most-coveted consolation prize.

Sadly, I’ve barely had time to crack open the spine on my contributor copy of Next, but some time soon I hope to be posting about my favourite stories from this impressive volume.
