Loyal Lyre's Indie Author Month 2020

Today's featured book is NEW RELEASE Welcome to Ord City from author Adrian Deans.

Available on NetGalley as Read Now!

"In 2023, Australia reversed its closed border policy and said to the world: ‘Welcome! You are free to come to Australia, but you must spend the first seven years in the Temporary Citizenship Zone around the Ord River."


“Forged in the searing coals of social division over asylum seekers, stoked by shadowy power plays, this darkly comic political thriller set in an Australia of the near future is as astute as it is riveting.”

Pauline Wright (President, Law Council of Australia)

“Never has a national tragedy seemed so hilarious.”

Stuart Quin (Full Circle Productions)

Adrian Deans has been writing seriously for over 25 years. His books could mostly be described as offbeat crime with a dash of literary and a dollop of spec fiction. His latest book (Welcome to Ord City) is his first independent release.
