Certys publishes novel by prize-winning Australian author
Publisher Certys Limited, the company behind the successful Global Short Story Competition, has published its latest ebook, by prize-winning Australian writer Myra King.
The novel Cyber Rules tells the story of Anthea Stevenson, a farmer’s wife, midlife-challenged and living in isolated rural Australia. For many years, she has harboured a dark secret. Now caught up on the addictive side of the Internet, she holds another secret, one which ultimately may prove to be far more deadly.
Myra’s royalties from sales of the book will go to Médecins Sans Frontières Doctors Without Borders, an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. Medecins Sans Frontières offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.
