EARTH PRIME (The Earth Girl Aftermath Stories 1)
Now available worldwide in Ebook.
Paperback release is aimed to be in time for Christmas 2021 but there are delays getting proof copies due to Covid/Brexit. I’m working on this!
Earth Prime is the first of what is planned to be two collections of stories set in the Portal Future after Earth Flight and during the preparations for the expedition to Fortuna.
The Earth Girl trilogy was told solely from the narrow viewpoint of Jarra. These collections include stories told from the viewpoints of other characters in the Earth Girl trilogy, and reveal personal details and information that Jarra didn’t know.
Earth Prime focuses on Jarra, Fian, and the other archaeologists.
(Best read after the Earth Girl trilogy.)
Approximate length 460 pages.

Books In Brogan “This is a not to be missed addition to the Earth Girl series.” See review
Brainfluff “If you have read and enjoyed the Earth Girl trilogy and would like once more to dive back into that world, this collection comes highly recommended. And if you haven’t and want to know what all the fuss is about, then it is an ideal place to start. It reminded me all over again just why I became such a fan of Edwards’ writing.” See review
A huge apology for paperback readers that Earth Prime won’t appear in paperback until autumn 2021.
When I publish an ebook, the paperback usually follows about two months later. In the current world situation, I can publish ebooks relatively normally, and my existing paperbacks seem to be available to buy with longer than usual delivery times, but publishing new paperbacks is a problem. Some steps in my usual paperback process are likely to take much longer than normal, while others may not be possible at all.
My deepest apologies that I’m therefore reluctantly delaying publishing the paperback of Earth Prime. Should it affect anyone’s decision on whether to wait for the paperback, this book is even longer than Borderline. I expect the paperback length to be at least 460 pages, and paperback printing costs depend on the number of pages, so this will be another higher-priced paperback.
