Happy Birthday and farewell

Darwin’s Soldiers was published a year ago today! Woo-hoo!

Happy Birthday to the little fella who doesn’t seem a day over… well, I probably came up with the idea in 2004, so the book a moody teenager by now!

And, as promised, this will be my final Darwin’s Soldiers update. Sad times.

My first post was made 932 days ago - or two and a half years in planetary time – and what travels we’ve had since then?! Who can forget the Land’s End to John O’Groats journey? Marking each milestone with a location. I wonder if I should have gone for the distance from Pluto to the Sun instead? Or Jaffa Cakes in a pack?

But fear not, those of you wrapped up in the saga of John Greene and his allies, I will continue to update you on all the exciting news (I’m just going to drop the word ‘tinseltown’) and developments of 'The Origin Trilogy' through the Survival Machines blog:


Where you can pre-order the Darwin’s Soldiers’ sequel, which is currently at 71%!

(That’s somewhere in the Cairngorms in old money – or seven Jaffa Cakes).

Darwin’s Soldiers would never have made it onto the printing press without you, so thank you one and all. The book came out twenty years to the day after I started writing my first novel and you made my dream a reality. I can never be more thankful. Signing books, chatting to readers, working with Editors and cover designers, seeing my author page on Amazon, launching my book in a fort… it’s been a helluva ride, as Crossley would say.

If you want to follow me in cyberspace, just click away…





Remember, it’s not the strongest who survive, or the most intelligent, but those who are most adaptable to change.
