Why I write Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Today I’ve got a post over on the Author Allsorts blog, talking about why I write Science Fiction and Fantasy. The answer is that it’s etched in my bones.

I also did an extra interview for Litpick during the pre-Christmas chaos.

Happy New Year, and a new free story on my website.

Earth Flight USA2015 has had some low points, particularly breaking my ankle in the spring and catching a nasty virus during the pre-Christmas preparations.

There have been a lot of high points too though. The big one was that the finalEarth 2788-1600x2400 book in the Earth Girl trilogy, Earth Flight, came out in the USA. I’ve also published three ebook extras in the series. Earth 2788: The Earth Girl Short Stories, Earth and Fire: An Earth Girl Novella, and (sneaking out just before Christmas)  Hera 2781: A Military Short Story.

Earth and Fire 3000x4500Thank you to everyone who has been reading my stories in 2015. Your reviews, ratings, personal messages, and just the knowledge that you were reading the stories created a plethora of other high points for me during the year.

I’ve a host of plans for 2016. Top of the list is not to break any bones, butHERA 2781 EBOOK COMPLETE a lot of book related things should be happening too. You can sign up here if you’d like to get email updates when I release something new, as well as get advance information on what’s happening next.

HERA 2781: A Military Short Story is now available worldwide on Kindle

I wanted to release something new before Christmas, but the Frontier novella was running late even before I got a nasty winter virus. The best solution seemed to be take a bit of time out to finish a short story, and sneak that out on Kindle ahead of Frontier. Although I’m describing Hera 2781 as a short story, it’s rather long, technically verging on novella length.

Hera 2781 is only available on Kindle at the moment, but I’m planning to add more ebook formats in future.


Hera 2781

The year is 2781. Lieutenant Drago Tell Dramis is a newly trained fighter pilot heading out on his first mission. This is the moment he’s dreamed of for years, but his dream is turning into a nightmare. Drago’s team leader hates him, and it’s hard to focus on a routine mission when the whole team is anxiously waiting for news of something far more important. A comet is on a collision course with one of humanity’s oldest colony worlds. Today is the last chance to save the planet Hera from total destruction.

Coming next is another prequel novella:- Frontier

FrontierComing next is another prequel novella, this one featuring Amalie on her frontier home world in Epsilon Sector. As with EARTH AND FIRE, I finished a short story for the EARTH 2788 collection but the ideas kept coming and I ended up expanding it to be a novella.

FRONTIER will initially be available in a range of ebook formats. Read full details here.

The estimated release date of FRONTIER is Dec 2015/Jan 2016. Obviously I’ll try to get it out before Christmas if possible. If you’d like to get an email alert when FRONTIER is available then please sign up for my newsletter.

A small confession. I had an awful lot of ideas about Amalie, so FRONTIER will be the first novella in the Epsilon Sector Novella sequence.
