Cover Reveal

Happy New Year Team Darwin!

It’s been a long wait, but I can now reveal the Survival Machines cover!

I think it looks awesome! As you may guess given the similarities with the Darwin’s Soldiers cover, it was designed by same artist - the brilliant Mark Ecob. A couple of Lutamek have been added and a number of human soldiers didn’t make the front cover… the casualties of war!

Even a global pandemic couldn’t stop Survival Machines from hitting the shelves and we now have a slightly earlier pub date of June 10th which means you should receive your copy in time for some summertime reading. Thank you all for supporting me and these books – they literally wouldn’t exist without your support, for which I’m eternally grateful!

Don’t forget, there is a free short story available from Darwin’s Soldiers – Redcoats - which follows a few characters who make an appearance in Survival Machines:

Between now and then, if you want some new reading material, here are three sets of free Sci-fi short stories for you:

The cover is arresting, and really like the font(s).
Really admire your scribbling short stories to use, too.
