Izazov krvi (the book)

One of the first Izazov krvi books ever in print! Pic by MBP.

Yeah, yeah, just on the verge of turning 30 I’ve finally realized a lifelong dream of publishing a novel (hard copy! print! has its own ISBN and all that jazz!) with a not inconsiderate amount of help from a few very dedicated individuals.

The book is for now available in Croatian only. If you’re looking about info about the book, follow this link (in Croatian) and if you’re interested in having me talk about the book at your local library/bookstore/book café, drop me a note or get in touch via Goodreads. I’m especially fond of book groups and would be very glad to attend your club’s meeting if you’re interested.

Get the book! (Croatia only)

I’m honoured to note that the novel Izazov krvi has been awarded two Croatian speculative fiction awards for young adult novels in 2018 – the SFERA award in Zagreb in May, 2018 and the Artefakt award in Rijeka in October, 2018.
