Happy New Year to one and all! May this New Year be a special one for you and your family instead of just being a chronological change of date and time.

For readers of my book, I have some special news: the copy-release for my next release in THE LAZARUS WAR series – ORIGINS. Here is a taster of where the war is going in 2016…

Following ARTEFACT and LEGION, ORIGINS is the third and final book of THE LAZARUS WAR, an action-drenched space adventure series from one of the most exciting new voices in science fiction.

For someone who has died and come back as many times as Conrad Harris, the nickname Lazarus is well-deserved. His elite military team are specialists in death – running suicide missions in simulant bodies to combat the alien race known as the Krell. But now the Krell Empire has wreaked such devastation that military command is desperate for a new strategy against the alien foe.

Harris and his team are being sent on a mission that could finally turn the tide of the war. Intelligence has been uncovered that indicates the location of the UAS Endeavour, a ship that went missing years ago deep in Krell territory. The ship could hold secrets to harnessing an ancient alien technology – possibly the most powerful weapon in the known universe. But if this power falls into the wrong hands, the consequences for humanity are unimaginable . . .

ORIGINS is available for pre-order now via Amazon, with release in August 2016. I turned in the manuscript to my editor a few weeks back, and we are currently in copy-edit stage, so things are coming along nicely.

2015 has been an exciting year for me. It saw the release of my first ever published book, ARTEFACT, and shortly thereafter the sequel LEGION. I’ve gone from no published books to three in what feels like a very short period of time! To anyone who has ever wanted to be a writer, this is nowhere as easy as it looks. Writing is immensely enjoyable, but it is also a time-hungry activity. The emotional rewards are immense, but so is the damage! I’ve learnt some important lessons about the whole process; having turned a hobby into something approaching a second job.

2016 is going to be the year of THE LAZARUS WAR. This year, all three of the main LAZARUS WAR novels will be released both in paperback and also audiobook. I can’t wait!

ARTEFACT, LEGION and REDEMPTION are available to order via Amazon and other good ebook retailers right now!
