Flowers, butterflies, and May. What could be more Manly? Well, how about an epic book sale? Yup, for this month only our book is just $0.99 (reg. $4.99). We’re calling the event Manly May and we’d love you to check it out. After all, the first rule of adventure is “always take advantage of a good sale.” :)

Adrastus Rood (our pen name) is comprised of writing duo Petra and Adam. Both North American nomads, we met at university and knew instantly that we wanted to tell stories together. Adam loves gin, video games, history, and mythology. Petra loves wine, fashion, yoga, and magazines. We both love tea, t.v., reading, hiking, board games, and picnics in parks. We currently make our home in the Inland Northwest with our two crazy dogs.
