Gaia's Engine

ill_1

A science-fiction horror with more than a hint of the supernatural. Tyler Penrose, medium and spiritual leader, is losing his faith. Hounded by sceptics and questioned by his congregation, he returns to the secret source of his inspiration - a mystical device built by his deceased father that he claimed could summon the dead. But when reports of ghost sightings increase and grisly murders follow, Tyler’s church is implicated, and he is forced to do battle not only with his own conscience, but the frightened public and the vanguard of a species intent on humanity's ruin.

Ocean Black

A fantasy story that started as a serialisation but will most likely end up as Trilogy of novels. Of all my writing efforts, this is one of my favourites, so this will definitely get resurrected in the near future - possibly some time in 2011.

Read the first part...

Exoterica

"Humanity is at the brink of extinction, serving as livestock for a brutal race known as the Jaegus. But when a mysterious saviour arrives with a message of hope, mankind is exposed to a far more sinister threat, for brooding at the edge of reality, forces older even than life itself lie in wait."

This is the sci-fi book (or Space Opera) I always wanted to write. Two drafts have been written, but I'm half way through the third, which has gone through some dramatic editing. This is what I'll be working on through 2010.

Read the prologue...

Jacob's Trouble

"Based on a true story - yet to come"

This was my first attempt at a novel that ended up as a 250,000 word epic. First drafted back in 1995, it was the culmination of more than five years of studying eschatology (the end times). The inspiration for this came after completing an earlier book which was an indepth study of the Biblical view, and it soon became apparent that it would make a good story, so I set to work. I have plans to one day redraft this, but until then, it shouldn't be inflicted on anyone else.

It Started With the Orange Tree

This was a smaller project completed in 2012. I wanted to write something very different and challenge the idea that conflict is an essential element of story telling. Nothing bad happens in this book. 

The Earth is growing tired and the world we know is about to change. Dramatically. Angel Goodsun recounts the days when the miracles began, when the sky grew bright with the light of two suns and wars ceased. When death and sickness fled, when soul-splitting began, and when Nature took pity on humanity instead of revenge. In the midst of the unexplained phenomena that are systematically restoring the planet into a place of unspoilt beauty and impossible harmony, Angel begins his pilgrimage to seek out the Green Man, and learn the secrets connecting him to the miracles. As the answers unfold, Angel discovers that the truth is even more astounding than the miracles themselves, and his destiny equally profound. 

This novella is currently out for submission.

The Revelation Sensation


For many years I have had a bunch of files sitting around in my PC - strange and fantastical tidbits gleaned from more than a decade of Biblical study into the subject of 'The End Times'. I have been procrastinating for way too long. Fussing and pawing over the details, but finally, I decided to self-publish it all.

I feel a strange sense of unease at portraying it in the way I have in this book. Don't laugh, but I went through a stage, during my Christian years, where I accepted this prophetic stuff, but now I don't, and whilst I still find the subject fascinating, I view it with a generous dollop of tongue-in-cheek. It is not my intent to offend, so if I do, my hope is to counter that by making sure that all profits from this book go straight to CancerResearchUK.

For every UK paperback I sell £2.48 will go to cancer research.
For every US paperback I sell $4.64 will go to cancer research.
(The rest of the money is just the printing and distribution costs).
Kindle takings will go to the same place too, but beware of a few formatting issues there. Strange things happen to Greek and Hebrew character sets in there!

And to add to that, I'm throwing in a free software gift too if you want it, but you'll have to check out the back of the book to find out what it is.

So please support this effort and hopefully you'll be entertained by the book itself too!


Secret Truth

I'm adding this for the sake of completeness, but to tell the truth, I'm incredibly embarrassed by it. It was my first real attempt at any kind of book and muddled together a collection of short stories, theological ramblings and art. Have no fear, it will never see the light of day! (Though if you browse in the gallery, you might find some of the art).

Atlantis Lost

Atlantis Lost was planned to be a musical story following the days after the legendary collapse of Atlantis. Adam James Wakeling was to be providing the music. It may be a while before this one gets scheduled.

 

Facenovel

At the end of 2012 I had an idea to write a novel in which all the followers of my Facebook author page would be a character in the story. This will be an on-line effort, released in small chunks and written jointly with my wife. Should be fun! The theme will be based on the top votes of the page followers.
