I’d aimed to post the final short story in the Earth 2788 collection today, but I’m afraid that’s got to be delayed because of two things beyond my control. Firstly, my computer has succumbed to the strain of producing a whole trilogy and has been slowly dying over the last two weeks. Secondly, the final short story has rebelled and decided to turn into a novelette. So apologies for the delay, but you should get an extra long story as compensation.

UK people, tomorrow (27th September) I’m at Southcart Books in Walsall, for their Sci-fi, Steampunk and fantasy writers gathering. Please come along and say hello. I’ll probably be the one wearing the T shirt that says ‘DON’T PANIC’.
Event starts at 11 a.m., I’m due to read 2.35 p.m. More details here.
I’ve now put the sixth story in the EARTH 2788 collection up on my website. This one is Alpha Sector 2788. Those who’ve read EARTH GIRL were probably expecting this to feature Dalmora, which it does, but there’s another familiar character appearing too. You can read the short story here.

I’ve also sent out the latest newsletter. Since there’s only one short story left to appear on the website, this newsletter is talking about other possible projects, and asking readers for feedback on which would most interest them. If you’d like to join this conversation, then just sign up for the newsletter.
There’s a guest post from me over at Author Allsorts, talking about how the first draft of Earth Flight came out just a little too long. Honey, I shrunk the book!
The fifth story in the EARTH 2788 collection, is Gamma Sector 2788, featuring Krath. You can read it here. Artwork is by Alex Storer thelightdream.net
FantasyCon 2014 in York, UK, is only a week away now. I’ll be there, so if you’re there too then please say hello.
If you can’t spot me anywhere else, I’ll be on a panel on Saturday morning at 11, and I’ll be at the mass signing. Remember you don’t need a physical book to come to the book signing. I know a lot of people have been reading the Earth Girl trilogy on ebook, so you’re welcome to just come to the book signing for a chat.
Earth Girl is a nominee for the 2014 Teens’ Top Ten. Voting is open now!
Had a great time at LonCon3 meeting readers of the Earth Girl trilogy. Earth Flight was only published in the UK on Thursday, so I was deeply impressed that some had already read it!
The fourth story in the EARTH 2788 collection features Amalie from Epsilon sector, and you can read it here. Artwork is by Alex Storer thelightdream.net
I’ve just added a newsletter page to my website. Sign up to get occasional quick email updates about new free stories appearing, details of future book releases and dates (including EARTH FLIGHT in the USA), and other extras.
