A shop without a shopkeeper.
A quarry with more lying broken in it than stones.
A detective, half-belonging to a place, trying to put its pieces back together.
Women of Wales, a land of mystery in more ways than one.
RaRa Avis Press is beyond delighted to announce the publication of Back in 5 by Ruby Mathias. This Wales-set crime novel will be for sale on Apple Books and perhaps other stores in the coming weeks (but not Amazon, because we hates them, precious). For now this website is your one wonderful source for this wonderful book. Thank you for supporting independent authors and publishers in this brave new world. Available in ebook only for the time being - perhaps we’ll launch a physical book and audiobook when this story becomes a show on the teevee! - but available in both .epub and .mobi for all your e-reader needs, nicely priced at £5.99. You can buy it for yourself or, by simply entering someone else’s email address when processing your shopping cart, you can give it to someone you love! (They will be emailed a code they can use to claim the download). We use Selz as our online store, and their checkout is SSL secure, using industry-standard encryption to keep your credit card safe and well.
Back in 5 is the first in a series of seven books, the series being called Serenity after the main character, DS Seren Parry. We hope to publish one book a year, every 1 March (St David’s Day, the national day of Wales). We are proud that this book is set in the excellent and beautiful nation of Wales, adding to the growing wave of Welshy noir. Now go and buy Ruby’s good book so that she can keep writing more instead of having to go and work in the Saudi desert or something, like before.
This book is very sweary so maybe it’s best that you don’t buy it if you object to strong language.
