Two Free Books in Celebration of Matariki

Today, Matariki is honoured as an official holiday for the first time in post-colonial Aotearoa! I have always had a fascination with the Pleiades constellation, and hoped this occasion would be honoured and eventually enduring as a unifying and universal celebration, transcending religions and cultures. 

IN FACT, in my dystopian series, set in a distant future, I reimagined Matariki merged with an introduced Spirit Festival, to represent the melting pot of future Xinland. The Pleiades star cluster even features on the cover of Unnatural (and the book opens with a poem written about it).

In celebration of today and for five days, Unnatural and The Gen2K Omnibus (a companion set of shorts set in the same world) are all FREE. Just head over to Amazon and send them to your kindle for $0.00. Remember you don't have to have a Kindle to read eBooks, just grab the app for free.

Snuggle up and enjoy, or save them for another rainy day.
