Join Prism Book Alliance® as Lisa Henry goes Outside the Margins today.
It’s a good month! By the time this post comes up, I would have already attended Euro Pride Con in Munich, be currently getting lost somewhere in Germany or Australia with JA Rock, and also, Tin Man is out! Because I had to schedule this post beforehand, you guys will have to wait until next month to hear me gushing about all the awesome people I’m sure to have already met in Munich!
Wow… tenses are hard. Full disclosure – I’m writing this post on the 5th of July, but talking about something that will have already happened (will be happening?) by the time it’s posted here on PBA. I am so confused right now. Perhaps wine will help! Wine always helps…
So, while next month I’ll be telling you all about the fun I had in Munich at EuroPrideCon, this month I’ll be telling you about Tin Man instead. Tin Man, written by Heidi Belleau and me, is set in the same universe as Bliss. It’s written to be a standalone novella though, so you don’t need to read Bliss first. If you have read Bliss though, you will see a very familiar face in Tin Man.
Heidi and I had great fun writing this. Dystopias are always fun to write! Not so much fun for our characters though, although we did get to play with the enemies-to-lovers trope, which is one of our favourites. Here’s the blurb:
Petty thief Ashoka “Ace” King knows better than to get in the way of Tophet’s Anti-Terrorist Unit. Rightfully feared in Tophet’s crime-ridden underbelly, a face-to-face encounter with an ATU is almost certainly a death sentence. But Ace has never been one to follow the rules.
Soren Lau might be an ATU rookie, but he’s not naive enough to believe everything his superiors tell him. Then again, he’s not stupid enough to disobey them, either. If he doesn’t shoot and kill as ordered, he might be next on their list.
But when Soren meets Ace, a moment’s hesitation is all it takes to put both their lives on the line. They don’t know each other, they don’t trust each other, and there’s no way in hell they can both walk away from this alive. But with suspicion and mortal danger mounting against both of them—and the forbidden attraction blazing between them—there’s nothing they can do but try.
If you decide to read Tin Man, I only hope you have as much fun reading it as Heidi and I did writing it. To check out an excerpt, you can go to Riptide.
And I’ll see you all next month, and probably make you jealous with all my stories of EuroPrideCon! Oh, and I forgot to mention another awesome thing that happened this month. I finally finished my first draft of Darker Space. It’s with my awesome beta readers now, so hopefully it won’t be too long until I can share an expected publishing date with everyone!

About Lisa Henry
Lisa likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters.
Lisa lives in tropical North Queensland, Australia. She doesn’t know why, because she hates the heat, but she suspects she’s too lazy to move. She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.
She attended university at sixteen, not because she was a child prodigy or anything, but because of a mix-up between international school systems early in life. She studied History and English, neither of them very thoroughly.
She shares her house with too many cats, a green tree frog that swims in the toilet, and as many possums as can break in every night. This is not how she imagined life as a grown-up.
