Part 5 of the L.A.O.S. is now up at the Darkness&Good blog! Click the image below to read 🙂 (Links to parts 1 – 4 are at the top of the post once you click through.)
Ready for a new book? My partner-in-crime Liana Brooks is away from the computer over her summer (July-ish), so she’s releasing the first book in her new series, Bodies in Motion, as a serial to keep the blog running while she’s gone. I’ve had the privilege of seeing this book in early drafts, and if you’re into space politics, witty flirty romance, and awesome worldbuilding, you’ll love this 🙂 Scroll down for the blurb!
BODIES IN MOTION
Coming June 13th (USA dates)
A body at rest stays at rest unless acted on by an equal and opposite force.
– Newton’s First Law of Motion
Selena Caryll lost everything in the war: her ship, her crew, her family. The only thing keeping her going is the hope that somehow the feuding, ground-bound settlers and the fuelless space fleet can set aside their differences. But getting the politically-fractured fleet moving again is more than she can manage alone. For now, she has to settle for working undercover with the planetary police force.
When someone tries to reignite conflict between the planet-siders and the fleet, there’s only one person who has the rank and ability to help Selena protect the fleet: Titan Sciarra, Fleet Guardian—the one man she’s tried hardest to avoid since the war destroyed her life.
In a world where the stagnant weight of tradition can be as deadly as any knife, the only way to survive is to keep moving.
BODIES IN MOTION will be serialised at www.lianabrooks.com this summer with new chapters every Tuesday and Friday, starting June 13th (that’s Wednesday and Saturday in Aus-land).
The full novel will be available in print and ebook September 19th, 2017.
It’s my turn to post a free short story to the Darkness&Good blog again this week. This is an older story, because I freely confess that I’m spending every inch of my writing time trying to finish my novel Fox Red so I can release it next year, but you’ll enjoy it 😉 Desperate Measures is a creepy little wedding story; I feel kinda sorry for the MC, actually 😀
Anyway, click to head over to the Darkness&Good blog and read Desperate Measures 🙂
YOU GUYS IT’S NEARLY HOLIDAYS. This, my friends, is a Very Exciting Thing. It also means that hopefully you’ll get some more regularly scheduled blogging – and I’m going to do my level best to set up some sort of blogging system that will work to keep things happening regularly throughout 2017, I promise >.<
BUT! IN THE MEANTIME! FREEEEEEE STOOOOORIEEEEEEESS!!
First of all, I have another short up on the Darkness&Good blog this week. It’s an extract from my work in progress, Fox Red. If you’re following along on social media, this is #FoxBook, and the reason I’m sharing an extract with you is…
The first part of Fox Red is being included in this fantastic anthology of sff YA stories! You can find this awesome anthology of stories for teens on Amazon here, and it’ll be available across all other retailers within the next week or so too. NOTE: It’s 99c at the moment, but if you wait a week or so for the price matching to kick in, it’ll be perma-free 😉 I’ll remind you about it again once that’s happened, so if you want to wait until then, go for it 🙂
The section of Fox Red that I’m sharing on Darkness&Good is NOT included in the That Moment When anthology, so you get bonus bits of story (woohoo!). And if you like what you see, make sure to head over to my Fox Red page for updates on the story and related things like inspiration images and music 🙂
9 days till holidays. See you on the other side.
Just a short post to let you know that I have something up on Darkness&Good this week – a poem, actually, that I wrote on the way home from the US last month.
Love you. Stay safe.
Reminder that the Darkness&Good free (unedited) short story blog is functioning again now that we’ve added author Thea van Diepen to our ranks, woohoo!
Today is part of my Russian steampunk assassin story, One Bad Man 🙂 Let me know if you like it and I’ll post more next time <3
