Under False Colours A Nathaniel Drinkwater Novel

Under False Colours A Nathaniel Drinkwater Novel

Author: Richard Woodman Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/02/2020

Acting for the Admiralty's Secret Department, Captain Nathaniel Drinkwater advertises his cargo of Russian military stores, thus embarking on a scheme to flout Napoleon's Continental System and antagonize the French Emperor's new ally, Czar Alexander. Packed with exciting incident worthy of wide appeal to those who love thrilling nautical encounters and the sea. (Nautical Magazine) Much of the enjoyment of Under False Colours is the fact that Woodman writes with such authority. His mariner s lingo is flawless, and at times, the reader is befuddled with his sheer virtuosity in the area. But the action fills in the terms that the reader may be unaware of, and there is no doubt that Nathaniel Drinkwater rates up there with the best of the nautical world. (Midwest Book Review)

The Ninja Daughter

The Ninja Daughter

Author: Tori Eldridge Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 21/11/2019

The Ninja Daughter is one of the launch titles for Agora, the new imprint from Polis Books focused on diverse voices in crime fiction. To date, Agora has received fantastic publicity, including features in Publisher's Weekly, New York Post, BookRiot and Entertainment Weekly. Commensurate to this, we expect The Ninja Daughter to receive strong review and publicity attention upon publication. Given the extensive coverage, we expect endorsements from major voices in crime fiction and women's fiction. The theme of a domestic violence, particularly as dealt with through a female protagonist with a variable cultural background deals with societal issues we expect to garner off-the-book-page coverage. Tori Eldridge, in addition to sharing her protagonist's heritage is herself an expert in various martial arts. Eldridge has been a tireless advocate for female empowerment, including hosting a popular podcast, contributing blogs, and writing several acclaimed non-fiction titles on the subject. Eldridge will do both local and regional events, and other appropriate markets, including appearances at popular conventions such as the Central Coast Writers Conference, Thrillerfest, Bouchercon, California Crime Writers Conference, and more. We will be extensively promoting the Agora launch list in Fall 2019 and The Ninja Daughter will be promoted heavily as one of the launch titles for the list.
