Welcome to the oasis, where sand is life and nothing is as it seems.

(CWs are listed in the end of this post and some are marked as spoilers. Please let me know in comments if I missed something)

Oasis is my second novel. (If you haven't read my debut, What the Woods Keep, yet, check it out, if you wish!)

I wrote Oasis exclusively on the days of heavy rain in my hometown of Melbourne, while alternating between listening to Ladytron's MIRAGE and London Grammar's NIGHTCALL on repeat.

Oasis is my love letter to archaeology, deserts, and genre-bending adventure horror. I hope you love it!


And remember: you can take the girl out of the oasis but you can't take oasis out of the girl.

Katya de Becerra Yay!!!

Katherine Moore I can’t wait, Miss K. When you’re ready to hand a copy over to my hot little hands, let me know.
*My mum fancied herself as an archaeologist when she was younger; she has a degree in history and English (wasted on us kids back then, aside from doing some librarian side work). I think that’s why she always had a thing for Indiana Jones/Harrison Ford.

Katya de Becerra This is so cool! I wanted to be an archaeologist so much when I was a kid but alas:) Naturally, I can't wait to mail you a signed ARC of Oasis the moment I have them! (Insider info: this book should be pubbed in Fall 2019, but I'll keep posted, lovely Katherine!) Thank you so much for being awesome! xx
P.S. And yeah I love Indiana Jones movies, always have, always will:)
So your mum might like Oasis... it's definitely got lots of Indiana Jones references and archaeology jokes LOL
