There’s life in the old boy yet

Hello again, all! I just looked at the date of my last post, and it’s been three years. I may have been absent from the world of blogging, but I haven’t been idle. I’m currently putting the finishing touches to my latest novel, Galactic Alliance: Betrayal. It’s five years since An Accident of Birth was published, and in that time I’ve written a science fiction space opera story that I hope you will enjoy.

What’s it about? I hear you ask. Here’s the blurb from the back cover:

The Galactic Alliance has brought advanced technology and trade to Earth. The governments of Earth see them as a friend – why invest in global defences when we have the Galactic Alliance as an ally?

Daniel thinks they're wrong. Nobody, not even Ruth, believes him when he stumbles upon a Galactic Alliance plot to take over Earth and subject humanity to brutal, dehumanising slavery.

Separated from Ruth by Vorth astro-pirates, Daniel is torn between trying to warn sceptical Earth governments and finding Ruth. The astro-pirates, meanwhile, discover that Ruth is not the pushover they expect her to be.

Pursued across the galaxy by hostile aliens, Daniel confronts the Galactic Alliance, plunging himself and Ruth into the heart of the biggest conflict in Earth’s history.

I hope that whets your appetite. If you like the sound of it, just wait ’till you see the cover. I’m planning to do a cover reveal very soon, and publication will follow shortly after that.

So, here I am, back from my blogging hiatus, and raring to go. Watch this space for a peek at the cover.
