#1 FOUR SMALL STONES - Growing up, finding girls and saving the Dreamtime will have to wait, Billy has other problems to deal with at the moment.
Could a kangaroo foil his brother’s attempts to turn him into a galah? Well, not alone it couldn’t, but add a blanket of bats, a mouthful of maggots and a crystal cave to the mix, and he just might stand a chance. Four Small Stones, a game only a bunch of bored brothers from the bush could dream up.
Jaw dropping. Sickening. Hilarious. Don’t miss it.
And NEVER, EVER, eat one of Billy’s biscuits.
#2 TRIBAL SCARRING - Time to unleash the warrior within and grow up. The spirit of Billy’s mother wants him to go walkabout through the whitefella culture, to find some girls and a future for his clan. He doesn’t want to go. She can’t be ignored. Now he’s faced with the fight of his life against wildlife and a torturous initiation.
Will Billy leave as a man or a boy? And what shocking gifts from the bush does Mallee and Pindaari come up with to send him on his way? Wicked!
#3 WALKABOUT Billy’s search for girls begins, if only he knew what one looked like and he had a pair of pants to wear.
He does find Amber, a beautiful blue-eyed blonde, makes friends with unusual characters and discovers true love. It’s not all good though, he witnesses a deadly brawl between black and white, makes a mortal enemy and suffers a terrible loss.
Walk with Billy and see the city through his eyes as he laughs, cries and tries to survive the whitefella culture.
WALKABOUT clocks in at 20,000 words, about 90 pages. It was great fun to write, and I believe that fun translates to the page. In classic Urban Hunters style, there are loads of twists and turns that I bet will surprise you, amaze you, and make you laugh out loud.
To celebrate the release of WALKABOUT, I’ve decided to make episodes #1 and #2 free for three days.
