2

2408. Humanity has travelled to the stars through interstellar portals, but the rebels and criminals were left behind on a ruined Earth. Eighteen-year-old Blaze is one of the last seven hundred people scavenging a living in an increasingly lethal New York infested by alien predators. Forced to step into the spotlight to help her father defeat a leadership challenge by her old enemy Cage, she’s now adjusting to being deputy leader of the uneasy alliance between the remnants of the Earth Resistance and the old criminal gangs.

As a child, Blaze escaped the firestorm when the London power grid exploded, and a similar firestorm will soon hit New York. The alliance must leave New York this spring or die, but they’re facing the twin threats of a fugitive Cage hiding somewhere in the area, and his old supporters causing trouble within the alliance. When a hunting party fails to return, the situation starts spiralling out of control, and the alliance’s off-worlder guests have a key part to play.

Scavenger Blood is the second book in the Scavenger Exodus series. This is set in the same future timeline as the Earth Girl trilogy, but takes place several centuries earlier, and features an ancestor of the trilogy’s main character, Jarra.

Happy 2019 and some exciting Russian news

hivemind1-3plusnovella

My New Year post is a few days late this year, but at least I managed to get the traditional New Year short story up on time. If you haven’t read Your Move, Drago yet, the3n it’s here.

The highlights for 2018 were the publication of another Earth Girl prequel novella, Earth and Air, and the third Hive Mind book, Hurricane, but there is also some exciting news for anyone who speaks Russian.

The year started with the publication of  the paperback of2 Defender in February.

Earth and Air was published in June as an ebook, with the paperback following in August. Earth and Air is the sequel to Earth and Fire, but significantly longer. You get fifty per cent more Jarra!

Earth and Air is the second in what is planned HIVE MIND 3 - HURRICANE COMPLETEto be a set of three Earth Girl prequel novellas following Jarra’s adventures in the summer before the start of Earth Girl. I don’t yet have a planned release date for the third novella – called with staggering originality Earth and Water. I’m currently focusing my efforts on full-length books because those generally seem more popular, so Earth and Water will have to wait until I have a suitable gap in my schedule.

Hurricane was my Christmas ebook release, so there was the usual last minute rush to get it published before the Christmas holidays. I’ve been glad to hear that people are enjoying the latest adventure of my telepath and her team, so the effort was definitely worthwhile.  The Hive Mind series is planned to be open-ended, and I have ideas for several future books.

earth girl russian coverAnd the exciting Russian news is that the Earth Girl trilogy is being published in Russian translation by AST. I knew this was going to happen last summer, but didn’t expect any books to be published until well into 2019. In fact, I discovered a few weeks ago that the Russians have moved much faster than I expected. My information is totally dependent on Google Translate, so Russian readers will be much better informed than me, but I believe Earth Girl has already been published in Russian while Earth Star is available for pre-order.

As always, I’d like to thank you all for reading my books, earth star russian coverrecommending them to your friends, sending me so many encouraging messages, and taking the time to do reviews and ratings. Your support is vital and greatly appreciated.

And finally, last January, I asked my newsletter list for volunteer beta readers. I had such a wonderful response that I’ve only been able to ask a small percentage of people to beta read so far, but I’d like to thank everyone who volunteered.

Happy 2019!

New Short Story on my website – Your move, Drago

Mosaic14

This post should have been both announcing the new short story, and rambling on about the events of the past year. The rambling bit has to wait a couple of days though because I had a routine hospital appointment yesterday (yes, the only appointment available was for New Year’s Eve), which left me a bit more battered than expected.

Fortunately, I had the sense to post the new story on the website in advance. Your Move, Drago is a very short story set in the Portal Future and features Drago Tell Dramis. It takes place after the events covered in the Earth Girl trilogy, but should be spoiler free for new readers, while giving a glimpse of things to come for those who have already read the Earth Girl trilogy

You can read Your Move, Drago here.

Ebook Release of Earth and Air: An Earth Girl Novella

Earth and Air: An Earth Girl Novella is available now worldwide in Ebook

Paperback release expected August 2018

Set in the Portal Future of the Earth Girl trilogy

 

EARTH AND AIR EBOOK COMPLETEDon’t breathe!

2788. Only the handicapped live on Earth. While everyone else uses interstellar portals to travel between hundreds of colony worlds, 17-year-old Jarra is among the one in a thousand people born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Sent to Earth at birth to save her life, abandoned by her parents to be raised a ward of Hospital Earth, she lives a regimented life in one of their impersonal residences.

Jarra is spending the summer at New York Fringe Dig Site with her school history club. While her friends search for lost treasures on the ground, Jarra is airborne in a survey plane and hoping to become a qualified pilot, but the sprawling ancient ruins of New York contain the lethal legacies of the past as well as its treasures.

EARTH AND FIRE was the first of what is planned to be a sequence of three prequel novellas set in the distant future of the Earth Girl trilogy and featuring Jarra. EARTH AND AIR is the second in the sequence. At over 60,000 words it is actually longer than standard novella length.

Delay due to Amazon technical issue

I’m having to delay the release of the Earth and Air novella due to a technical issue at Amazon making some ebooks (particularly new and recent releases) either become invisible to buyers or visible with no buy button.

My deepest apologies about this. I hate having a last-minute delay, but I was caught up in a different issue with the paperback of Defender, which kept publishing and unpublishing for a week or so. Worse still, all the books affected had a recurrence of the problem a month or so later. I don’t want to risk something similar happening with the ebook of Earth and Air, and I can’t announce a release until the ebook is loading on all the main sales channels.

Amazon’s engineers are working to solve this issue so hopefully the delay won’t be long. I’m watching their announcement regularly for updates, and checking reports from other authors. I’ll get the release moving as soon as the situation is resolved.
