Guest Post – Infinite Worlds

There’s a new guest post from me at Author Allsorts. This one is about why I chose to write science fiction.

Guest Post -On Writing

There’s another guest post from me over at Author Allsorts. It was supposed to be about choosing an author I’d like to have a masterclass from. It somehow turned into a piece about Stephen King’s book “On Writing”.

Guest Post – Now We Are Ten

There’s a new guest post from me over at Author Allsorts. It’s about the first story I wrote. That was almost ten years ago, and my tenth publication was out this week, hence the title is Now We Are Ten.

That first story was a little rough around the edges, 2000 words of silliness that’s very different to the science fiction I write these days. If you’re curious, I’ve temporarily added it to my free story page, so you can read it here.

Scavenger Alliance

Scavenger Alliance is set in the same Portal Future as Earth Girl, but at the end of the Exodus Century that emptied Earth, and features a couple of Jarra’s ancestors.

In the year 2408, a century after the invention of interstellar portals, seven hundred people scavenge a living in abandoned New York. The respectable citizens have either withdrawn to new settlements in the countryside, or joined the great exodus of humanity to new, unpolluted colony worlds, but eighteen-year-old Blaze is one of the undesirables that neither the citizen settlements nor the new colony worlds will accept.

Blaze’s mother died six years ago. She thinks her father is Donnell, the leader of the uneasy alliance between the remnants of the Earth Resistance and the old criminal gangs. It’s less clear what Donnell thinks, since he barely speaks to her. The alliance is crumbling under the strain of its hardest winter ever, when an old enemy tries to use Blaze as a pawn in a power bid. She thinks her life can’t possibly get more difficult, but then an aircraft carrying three off-worlders arrives in New York.

Books In Brogan “Another amazing, addicting story with turbulent ups and downs that had me undeniably hooked throughout the entire thing.” See review

USA Libraries

earth-2788-ebook-completeI know many people are dependent on borrowing books from libraries. Now the extras in the Earth Girl series are available in paperback and on Overdrive, I’m pleased to see they are starting to appear in libraries in the USA. Telepath and Reaper are slowly working their way through the system too, so you can try putting in requests to your librarian to stock them.

Happy Year Day 2017 and a Christmas Story

FrontierI’ve just been looking at the post I put up a year ago, where I said that I had a host of book-related plans for 2016. As it turned out, 2016 was a problematical year, when too many good people made their final bows.

Focusing in on my book-related plans though, I did manage to achieve a lot, including the paperback editions that I’d been promising people.

In the spring, I published a new novella set in the Portal Future of the Earth Girl series. Frontier: An Epsilon Sector Novella in both ebook and paperback. There were also paperback releases of Earth 2788: The Earth Girl Short Stories, and Earth and Fire: An Earth Girl Novella.

HIVE MIND 1 NEW COMPLETEI then had two short stories published in anthologies. One in an anthology of Space Opera stories,  Crises and Conflicts, published by NewCon Press. Another in an anthology of apocalypse fiction featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists, Defying Doomsday, published by Twelfth Planet Press.

In the summer, I published a full length book set in a new Hive Future. Telepath is now available in both ebook and paperback. If you haven’t read it yet, there are some sample chapters of Telepath here.

Just before Christmas, I published another full length book, this time set in a new Game Future. Reaper is currently only out in ebook, but I expect the paperback will be available in March 2017. (Paperbacks are always likely to appear a couple of months after the ebook because of the time taken up arranging different covers and formatting, as well as checking proof copies.) You can read sample chapters of Reaper here.

reaper-completeI usually put a story up on my website for the New Year. This time the creative side of my brain decided to write a short Christmas story so I put that up early than usual. Many of you will already have discovered and read it. Those who haven’t, can read my Christmas story here.

I think a lot of people are looking forward rather nervously to what 2017 will bring. I have a long list of book related plans again, though I doubt I’ll be able to achieve quite as much as in 2016.

My first release in 2017 should be yet another new book. Scavenger Alliance is set in the Portal Future of the Earth Girl series, but centuries earlier during Exodus century, and features one of Jarra’s ancestors.

If you’d like to get an email alert whenever I release a new story, please sign up for my newsletter.

Thank you to everyone who has been reading my books, especially those who took the extra time to do reviews, ratings, or send me personal messages. I hope you’ll enjoy reading more stories from me during 2017.

Happy New Year!

Set in the Game Future

In the year 2519, people on Earth don’t grow old and die any longer, their bodies are frozen and they start a new life in the virtual reality of the Game.

Jex is almost eighteen, working twelve hour shifts, and dreaming of when she’ll be legally adult and begin her long-planned idyllic life in Game. When a bomber attacks a Game server complex, one of the virtual worlds of Game crashes, and eleven thousand immortal players die during emergency defrost. Death has struck Game for the first time in centuries, and Jex is questioned as a suspect in the bombing.

With this on her record, Jex will never be allowed to enter Game, but then one of the legendary founder players of Game offers her the chance to join his investigation into the bombing. Jex must help Hawk catch the true bomber to protect the worlds of Game and save her own future, but the bomber is far more dangerous than anyone realizes.
