What would you choose if you came face-to-face with your own Fate? Caterina thinks nothing of this simple, if rather philosophical, question. But when she's running from town to town, trying desperately to escape her Fate's cruelty, maybe she'll start wishing she'd chosen the other way... A new Lost Tale from Sicily, and it's a hum-dinger! Only in The Phoenix comics magazine.
Exclusive to The Phoenix Comic, here is a snippet of today's feature - Lost Tales: The Reluctant Fortune-Teller.
It's a story from Ethiopia, an amazingly rich and vibrant country I was fascinated to learn lots more about while researching this comic. The story features an amazingly lazy husband, and his frustrated, long-suffering wife who finally snaps and pushes him into a job as a fortune-teller, with predictably hilarious results! Not based on any husbands I know...
It's here, the wait is finally over! Eight wonder-filled world tales featuring lonely princesses, cunning merchants, invisible warriors, sea-monster best friends and many, many more awesome characters from the common literary heritage of humankind!
Lost Tales is now available to buy on my website (go here if you want the book signed with a sketch) and on The Phoenix Comic website (go here if you want to a limited edition signed bookplate! Hurry thought - they really are limited!)
The Lost Tales book launch is just over one week away! (Thursday 4th August) I don't know about you, but I am super excited! Here is a little snippet featuring a philosophical rice-and-beans street vendor from the story Two Merchants, just one of the fantastic fables featured in the book. Pre-order today from my website and receive a signed copy the moment it is released!!
