You can now read the whole of Kappa Sector 2788, an Earth Girl novelette featuring Colonel Riak Torrek, here.
This is the last of the planned EARTH 2788 short story collection, but I’ve decided to add a bonus short story at the end of the year. This time I’m asking readers to vote on which character they’d like me to feature in the short story. If you’d like to vote, then please sign up for the newsletter for full details.
I’m delighted to hear that EARTH GIRL is a Teens’ Top Ten title for 2014. Thank you to the Young Adult Library Services Association, all the libraries, and everyone who took part in this. You can watch the video announcement and see the other great books in the top ten here.
You can now read the third part of Kappa Sector 2788, an Earth Girl novelette featuring Colonel Riak Torrek, here. Just one more part to come.
You can now read the second part of Kappa Sector 2788, an Earth Girl novelette featuring Colonel Riak Torrek, here. There are two more parts to come.
If you are in the UK, then I’ll be attending the following events over the next month or two. Please feel free to say hello. You’re looking for someone small, often wearing a ‘Don’t Panic’ T shirt.
October 11th. The Books Are My Bag Bookshop Party at Southcart Books, 20 Lower Hall Lane. I’m due to be reading at 12.35.
October 25th. Bristolcon, Bristol.
November 14th-16th. Novacon, Nottingham.
As I posted earlier, the final short story in the Earth 2788 collection was delayed by two things. The death of my computer, and the story deciding to rebel and turn into a novelette.
I’ve now posted the first part of the novelette, Kappa Sector 2788, and there will be three more parts appearing over the next three weeks.
This novelette features Colonel Riak Torrek. Read it here!

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!
