New acquisition: The Kingfisher’s Debt, by Kura Carpenter

Paper Road Press is delighted to announce that we have acquired Dunedin writer Kura Carpenter’s debut novel, Wicked by Blood: The Kingfisher’s Debt.

Best described as “Outrageous Fortune meets The Dresden Files”, The Kingfisher’s Debt is the story of Tamsin Lee, petty crim, not-so-petty magician – and, thanks to her special abilities and a few poor life choices, first on the call list when the cops discover the body of a baby in the grounds of the local stadium, apparently sacrificed in a magical ritual.

Kura, who lives in Dunedin, New Zealand, enjoys reading classic fiction, practicing calligraphy and designing fabric. She has a greyhound, several chickens, and may or may not have an elderly ninja cat at the time of reading. She also collects vintage sewing machines – but if her husband asks, she’s storing them for a friend.

Look out for The Kingfisher’s Debt in early 2017.
