IT IS HERE.
YES IT IS.
AND YOU CAN PREORDER IT AAAAAAAAAH
That’s the cover for my new book ADRIFT. It’s out June 2018. Isn’t it a beauty?
It’s designed by Orbit Books artist Charlotte Stroomer. The book itself – which is about a group of space tourists on the world’s crappiest tour ship who find themselves in one hell of a fucked-up situation – is already getting some great endorsements from across the world of SFF. Here’s a sampling:
‘AN EDGE-OF-THE-SEAT EPIC OF SURVIVAL AND ADVENTURE IN DEEP SPACE’ Gareth L. Powell, the BSFA award-winning author of Embers of War
‘A UNIQUE MIX OF THRILLER, SPACE ADVENTURE AND CONSPIRACY NOVEL – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED’ Jamie Sawyer, author of the Lazarus War novels
‘ADRIFT IS RICH IN DEEP CHARACTER-DRIVEN DRAMA, BUILT ON A HIGHLY SUSPENSEFUL PREMISE‘ D. Nolan Clark, author of Forsaken Skies
Here’s the longer back-of-the-book blurb:
In the far reaches of space, a tour group embarks on what will be the trip of a lifetime – in more ways than one . . .
At Sigma Station, a remote mining facility and luxury hotel in deep space, a group of tourists boards a small vessel to take in the stunning views of the Horsehead Nebula.
But while they’re out there, a mysterious ship with devastating advanced technology attacks the station. Their pilot’s quick thinking means that the tourists escape with their lives – but as the dust settles, they realise they may be the only survivors . . .
Adrift in outer space on a vastly under-equipped ship, they’ve got no experience, no weapons, no contact with civilisation. They are way out of their depth, and if they can’t figure out how to work together, they’re never getting home alive.
Because the ship that destroyed the station is still out there. And it’s looking for them…
I’m not going to say too much about the book now. I am very, very close to finishing the draft of another book (which I can’t actually tell you much about yet – it’s kind of a suspicion of mine not to talk about things before they’re done). That book will be out on Orbit Books in 2019. And next year, I’ll be blogging a lot more than I have this year.
For now, please preorder Adrift (it cooks). Preorders are one of the things that really, really, really help authors. Like off-the-charts help. To say thank you, please enjoy this video of Idris Elba being sexy as fuck.
