By Reservation Only, the first novel from the breakthrough visionary mind of Bronwynn Erskine, is finally available!
The novel is a veritable cross-section of Engen's publishing interests over the past several years, combining superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy, and 2SLGBTQIA+ representation into a stellar first novel from one of this province's new bright stars in writing!
Longtime readers of Engen Books will be familiar with Erskine's name. They have been featured in four 'From the Rock' anthologies to date and were prominently featured in Acceptance: Stories from the Centre of Us in which a blind panel of judges chose not one, not two, but three of their stories to represent the best of 2SLGBTQIA+ writing in the province.
Stay tuned to the Engen Books facebook page for launch information and when we'll have the title in stock, as well as when eBooks go on sale. For now, if you just can't wait to get your hands on this modern masterpiece, it's available around the world on Amazon at this link!
From the back cover: Secret lives within secret lives, and powers that don't always make things so super. Nobody ever said being a trans superhero would be easy.
Reeling from his mentor’s murder and accused of complicity with the man who killed him, Toby MacNamara, AKA Double Tap, is quick to lash out at any target that presents itself. His attitude immediately sets him butting heads with reserve squad leader Alex Corbett (Justice), whose visual impairment doesn’t stop him from seeing right away how much trouble his new squad member is going to be. Alex struggles to keep his unruly team on track, and away from each other’s throats, as what should have been a simple mission against minor villain Doctor Defenestrator blossoms into an unexpectedly vicious trap.
Now with his promising career in the Metahuman Defence Corps forced to a standstill and a team of misfits as his only allies, Toby must find the courage to trust these virtual strangers with his life. And, just maybe, with the woman he's still learning how to be.
She knew it wouldn't be easy, but nobody told her it would be quite this hard.
Engen Books would like to thank Erskine for their continued efforts in writing and for choosing us with their first novel -- more to come, watch this space!
