ARTEFACT, book one of THE LAZARUS WAR, will be released in paperback and audiobook on 25th February 2016! I’m gearing up for the release, and cannot wait to share the world I’ve created with you all. The ebook release was of course exciting, but seeing the paperback in the shops (and on Amazon!) is something I’ve really be looking forward to. It seems like an age ago that I finished the story, and it was released in ebook last April, so this has been a long-term objective…

To celebrate the upcoming release of ARTEFACT, I’m going to be posting character biographies and service records for the main cast members. If you’re curious about THE LAZARUS WAR, perhaps these images and insights into the main characters will whet your appetite for the actual books! I commissioned a concept artist to create these images for me, and it’s great to see the artist’s impressions of the characters I’ve created. The amazing artwork in this series of posts was created by the artist Choo Kiau Ping: you can see more of his creations on his Deviantart account  

Each week, I’ll be posting a different service record. These are downloadable from this site (either click here, or go to the link on the navigation bar above). The character concept art will also be downloadable by clicking here, or going to the gallery tab. 

Here’s the record for Captain Conrad Harris: as of 2279, the date of the ill-fated mission to Helios III…
