If you’re looking for physical books for Christmas presents, either for yourself or others, then remember that the extra short story collection and novellas in the Earth Girl series are now available as trade paperbacks. Look for Frontier, Earth 2788, and Earth and Fire at online retailers, and be sure to check the prices because some outlets are charging more than the recommended prices.
You could also treat yourself to my new full length book, Telepath, set in the Hive Future.
My Earth Girl novella, Earth and Fire, is now available as a 152 page trade paperback. As with Earth 2788, this has a very different cover to the ebook. The full details are here.
I’ve now finished catching up with the paperbacks for those who prefer physical books for themselves or to give as presents. In future, any release that’s at least as long as Earth and Fire should appear in ebook first with the paperback following a couple of months later. My apologies that the extra time is needed for the special formatting, expanded cover art, and posting and checking proof copies.
My latest book, Telepath, is now available worldwide in a variety of ebook formats and as a 354 page paperback.
Amber’s job is hunting down criminals before they commit their crimes.
Full details here.
I was planning to release the trade paperback of Telepath next, but the printers sent me a proof copy of the wrong book. That delays things so I probably won’t be able to release the paperback of Telepath for at least another two weeks.
Since I was left holding a copy of Earth 2788 that looked perfectly reasonable to me, I decided to surrender to the decree of fate and go ahead with publishing that. The paperback has 232 pages and you’ll notice it has a very different cover to the ebook. I hope you like it.
Full details here.
Today I’ve got a guest post over at Author Allsorts, where I’m talking about a very special library.
Within a couple of days of Telepath being released, people started asking about a sequel. I’ve already started work on Hive Mind 2, but I’m afraid that it’s likely to be about a year before it’s published. Sadly books take a lot longer to write than to read.
The good news is that I’m hoping to get another book out before Christmas. More news on that in a month or two.

A new story, with new characters, set in a very different future from that of the Earth Girl trilogy.
Amber is one of over a million eighteen-year-olds in one of the great hive cities of twenty-sixth century Earth. She’s about to enter the Lottery of 2532, which will assess her abilities and decide her hive level, her profession, her whole future life. Amber’s dream is to be level 10 or above, her nightmare is to be a level 99 Sewage Technician.
When Lottery discovers Amber is a rare and precious telepath, she must adapt to a new life protecting the people of the crowded hive city. Her job is hunting down criminals before they commit their crimes, but she doesn’t know she’s being hunted herself.

Some people will have already noticed that I’ve got a story in each of two recent anthologies.
If you are interested in an anthology of Space Opera stories, then Crises and Conflicts is published by NewCon Press. It’s available in ebook, paperback, and a limited edition signed hardback. My story is set in the portal future of the Earth Girl series, and is called The Wolf, The Goat, and the Cabbage. As the editor said, nothing makes you think Space Opera like cabbages…
If you are interested in an anthology of apocalypse fiction featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists then The Defying Doomsday anthology is published by Twelfth Planet Press and includes my very own doomsday story, called I Will Remember You. It’s available in ebook and paperback.
There’s good news for those of you who’ve been eagerly asking for physical books as well as ebooks of the new stories. Frontier is now available as a 182 page paperback.
The paperback is now listed on Amazon as well as Barnes and Noble, and will slowly filter on to some other outlets as well.
Full details and links are here.
The Defying Doomsday anthology has just been published by Twelfth Planet Press and includes my very own doomsday story!
Defying Doomsday is an anthology of apocalypse fiction featuring disabled and chronically ill protagonists, proving it’s not always the “fittest” who survive – it’s the most tenacious, stubborn, enduring and innovative characters who have the best chance of adapting when everything is lost.
