We’re very excited to reveal the cover of A Series of Ordinary Adventures, the debut solo collection of up-and-coming British short story author Stevie Carroll!
Plus, it’s also time to start the pre-order for this thoughtful, transporting collection of fantastic – and fantastikal – tales. Not only can you get a copy of the book – or even a signed copy – but you can also get posters of images that inspired the author while writing, or a photo book filled with art and reference images and notes made by Stevie! You won’t be able to get incentives like that anywhere else…
So what’s in this great collection, you ask? Magic, wonder, and horror! Plus some very sweet – and sometimes unsettling – romance. There’s something for everyone!
A wander down a country pathway, a cruise vacation in the Mediterranean, a school reunion, a sandwich eaten in the park – in the stories of Stevie Carroll, the mundane becomes tantalizingly magical. A footballer’s mistress gets more than just an apartment when her lover tries to keep her in style; a rock-and-roll bass player finds out that second chances aren’t all they’re cracked up to be; something sinister lurks beneath the trappings of a travelling carnival.
Richly peopled with characters you might meet in the shop around the corner, yet haunted by glimpses of something entirely otherworldly, A Series of Ordinary Adventures will transport you from the streets and lanes of England to a place where imagination is only the beginning.
Magical realism mixes with subtle horror and heartfelt romance in a collection of stories that will captivate and transform you long after the final page.

A Series of Ordinary Adventures launches on May 22, in print and digital, wherever books are sold.
