Survival Machines Launch Date
Happy holidays everyone! I hope you’re doing well and keeping safe?
The launch date for Survival Machines has been confirmed (albeit slightly delayed due to minor global pandemic conditions) as 1st July 2021! Of course, you will receive your copy before it hits the bookshops, along with a copy of Darwin’s Soldiers if you pledged for the set, so set aside some June reading time now!
If you haven’t already picked it up, the free short story set in the Darwin’s Soldiers world, ‘Redcoats’, is free to download and expands on a few peripheral characters: https://storyoriginapp.com/giveaways/41ea3934-0fc4-11eb-aaf5-7778e05e1457
And, a two-minute read, ‘Such a Perfect Day’, has just been released. It isn’t Sci-fi, but is a bit of a tear-jerker (you have been warned!) https://storyoriginapp.com/directdownloads/1a11085a-f0c1-4e86-890d-4111b4a9e396
Writing-wise, I have just finished the first draft of the sequel to The Penguin Killer, entitled ‘Ready Or Not’, set in 1996, with all the Britpop trimmings you would expect. Once it has been released, I will be returning to ‘Origin Wars’, the final book of The Origin Trilogy! Exciting times! I left the book at the half-way point this time last year and my mind is buzzing with new ideas, so I can’t wait to get cracking!
In the meantime, if you’re looking for new, free books, here are a few more collections of new Sci-fi stories:
