Ebook Release of Array 2781 – featuring Drago Tell Dramis

The short story, Hera 2781, about Drago Tell Dramis was published back in 2015. I planned to finally write a novella-length sequel to it at the start of this year. However, Drago Tell Dramis has insisted on turning this into his own four-part series set in the year 2781 , with the first part, Hera 2781, being followed by three full-length books.

The status of the Drago Tell Dramis 2781 sequence is now:-

Hera 2781 (short story) pubished 2015 in ebook.

Hestia 2781 (novel) published June 2021 in ebook.

Array 2781 (novel) out now in ebook.

Sol 2781 (novel) coming soon.

Please start reading with Hera 2781 to fully appreciate the series.

Those who prefer physical books will be pleased to hear that I’m currently working on catching up with outstanding paperbacks.

Array 2781 cover art shows a solar array transport ship.Drago has now learned the secret that his Betan clan has been hiding for almost a decade. He’s currently alternating between moods of pitying his second cousin and fighter team leader, Jaxon, and wanting to strangle him.

They both have to put their feelings aside though, and concentrate on using lumbering solar array transport ships to help with the repairs of the five Earth solar arrays, because Earth is critically short of power. Fortunately, repairing solar arrays is perfectly routine work, so Drago definitely can’t get into trouble.

    I cannot express in words just how much I love this entire series. I first read the Earth Girl trilogy in 2018, and then forgot about it for a while. I periodically reread at least parts of the books throughout the years as I really liked the trilogy and it gave me great comfort. So, imagine my surprise when I found out that there were multiple novellas and short stories associated with the series! I discovered the existence of all of these stories in October during an international trip. I finished one of the books just before getting on a plane to return home, so while waiting in line for the gate I was on the Kindle app frantically buying and attempting to download books onto my Kindle on the crappy airport Wi-Fi so I’d have something to read on the plane.

    I also own the Earth Girl series in both paperback and Kindle format, in case you were wondering just how much I love the series. That was actually by accident I think, I seem to remember that I read the first book and then could not find the next two books in physical format without having to wait for a while. So I bought those ones as ebooks, and then later picked up the physical copies to add to my bookshelf. Then, of course, I’m pretty sure it was at some point during my international trip that I had to purchase Earth Girl in Kindle format as well, because I needed to refresh myself on some of the events in the series.

    I have to say, Commander Mason Leveque is one of my favorite characters in, like, forever. I have no idea what it is, but I find him so funny, and he’s so smart, and I really wish that I knew enough about statistics that I could just blurt out percentages of any given event happening. As it is, I have to contend with the fact that I only took statistics in my first year of university and after that rejected most math, but hey, I guess I can always learn. Being a threat team specialist sounds super cool (but I am a data nerd, so obviously I would think that!).

    In any case, I was very pleased with how much he shows up in the Drago series!!

    I am dying to find out the big Tell clan secret, and also to find out what happens with Jaxon and Jarra, if anything. Based on the fact that in the main series she noted that the letter from the Military was version 2, indicating that version 1 had been written when she was 14, I have to think that the Military at least has been keeping tabs on her for much longer than when she asked for her parents’ information. I’m trying to say this in a way that doesn’t spoil the events of this series, so I apologize if it’s super vague.

    I could honestly go on and on and on about this series, but I’ll stop here for now. I’m desperately waiting for another Scavenger book, although I have a feeling that is not currently on your list. I have been meaning to pick up the Hive Mind series, so I might do that.

    • I’m sorry to have taken so long to reply to your comment. I’ve been busy with Christmas preparations, and publishing the Hera 2781 and Hestia 2781 combined paperback, and wanted to wait until I had time to write a detailed response rather than rushing things.

      I’m delighted that you’ve enjoyed the Earth Girl trilogy so much, and deeply amused to think of your shock when you discovered the many related stories in October. Mason Leveque certainly features strongly in the Drago series, and I think being a threat team specialist for the Alien Contact programme counts as being cool. Leveque is extremely smart, and skilled at assessing and combining probabilities of individual events, but there are occasions when he’s driven to effectively pulling a number out of thin air for pure lack of information. Notably in Earth Flight, when he’s asked the probability of the pedestal accepting Fian alone.

      I obviously can’t comment on anything that may or may not happen in Sol 2781 at this point, but I hope you’ll enjoy it when it’s published some time early in 2022. The third Scavenger Exodus book is still very much on my list. I keep trying to find a suitable slot of time in my publishing schedule to finish writing it and put it through the publishing preparation stages. The problem is that I’ve got multiple other books fighting to be written and published. I need to get Mason Leveque to clone me!

      It should definitely be worth you giving the Hive Mind series a try. It’s set in a very different future from the Earth Girl stories, and Amber is a very different person from Jarra, but the series has a similar focus on worlds and the characters. I’ve found most readers of the Earth Girl trilogy enjoy sharing Amber’s journey as she discovers more about her Hive future and herself.
