It’s another author mailing list. Why should you be on this one?

  • Because you get four books for free.
  • Because you get the opportunity to get ARCs, sneak peeks, background info, subscriber-only 99c specials on brand new books, and recommendations. And you get to be the first to see my new covers!
  • Because I’m just me, a single author. I’m not a marketing machine, I’m not a big company. I’m a real person. Just me.

Who is Patty Jansen?

I’m an Australian author of Science Fiction and Fantasy. I’ve written more than twenty novels in different series:

  • Ambassador Series (Space Opera; 6 books, ongoing)
  • Icefire Trilogy (dark fantasy; 3 books, finished)
  • Return of the Aghyrians series (YA Space Opera; 4 books, finished)
  • For Queen And Country (Historical Fantasy; 6 books, finished)
  • ISF-Allion series (hard SF; 2 books and some novellas, ongoing, but very slowly)

I’ve been self-publishing since 2011, and before that sold a novel to a traditional press, and short stories to genre magazines such as Analog Science Fiction and Fact.

Why The Beast?

The Beast is the nickname for my mailing list. It’s a giant program of mailings full of goodies that you will receive bi-weekly on Fridays. In between, I may manually send notifications for new releases and sales when they happen.
