Coming Attractions

This week's Writer Wednesday treat is an interview with Ailsa Abraham, whose first novel, Shaman's Drum  (Crooked Cat, 2012) appeared just last Friday. 

It's a world where mainstream religions have been outlawed, and the old gods have returned. Iamo, a priest of the Great Mother, was sworn to celibacy, but his love for Riga, a Black Shaman and a magical assassin, caused him to break his vows. After being imprisoned apart from each other for three years, Iamo has accepted an offer to earn them both a pardon and the possibility of marriage. If they survive. 

Their task is to discover why demons are breaking through from the other side. Which of the cults are renegades who allow the demons through? Who can they trust? Combining their powers, they face the ordeal with the help of a band of eclectic pagans, spirit creatures, Riga's Black Shaman brothers, an undercover Christian granny, and three unusually energetic Goths. It's a tough assignment, but the hope of a life together keeps them fighting.

I think you'll like it, and I know you'll like Ailsa!
