Nearly there...

Team Darwin… (or Team Survival?) …our unit of hardened warrior-readers grows by the week and we’ve just hit 71%, which means ‘Survival Machines’ is well on its way to publication!

It’s been eleven months since funding began, so we’re a fair way behind the ten months it took to bring ‘Darwin’s Soldiers’ to fruition, but I’m hoping we will be complete by the end of the year, which will mean the paperback will hit the shops (and your doormats) in time for the 2020 Summer Hols. As ever, thank you all for your support and for helping Unbound Books continue my dream – I can’t wait to see all three books of ‘The Origin Trilogy’ on the bookshop shelves!

If you know anyone who loves Sci-fi with a sprinkle of history and the odd robot, please send them to the river of books, where the paperback is currently sold out, but the e-book is going great guns: or send them to my website for more info:

And please spread the word about ‘Survival Machines’! I need your help to bring in new readers, who can receive both books if they haven't read 'Darwin's Soldiers' yet (now that's a great idea for a present!).

If we get another 30 readers to pre-order a paperback, the Editors and Designers can get cracking on the new book!
