“Yep, this is exactly where I thought I’d be at this point in my life,” Jack sighed, pulling on yet another pair of latex gloves as he stared forlornly at the reeking dumpster. “Ass-deep in garbage.”

“We lead a charming life,” Kamala agreed. “At least the manager was kind enough to let us do this without a fight. Technically, we’re supposed to wait for the police.”

“Not enough time on the clock for that. We’ll work out the details later.” Jack cleared his throat and cast her a sidelong glance, smirking.

“Ladies first?”

Kamala sent him a glare that could curdle milk. His smirk widened into a grin before he tossed both large black lids back and heaved himself up over the side. He landed and wobbled for a moment before shuddering as the stench of rotten food swallowed him whole. He breathed through his mouth in shallow bursts, his eyes tearing, and managed to keep his breakfast down after a moment.

“Yep,” he said weakly, offering Kamala his arm. “Charming, indeed.”

She climbed in next to him and they carefully rooted through the trash, checking for any bits of electronics in case the laptop had been disassembled before being tossed. “What are the odds that we’ll find it in this mess?”

“We probably have a better chance of growing wings and flying around the city,” Jack said, grimacing as he tossed a half-filled macchiato aside. “But the devil’s in the details. There is no perfect crime. If Okegawa was on a deadline, he might have been in a rush. Being in a rush means making mistakes. That’s all we need. Just one mistake to catch him.”

They searched for the better part of half an hour before Kamala heard a suspicious crunching sound beneath her covered boots. She shifted a few things aside and found a long white cord. She tugged sharply on it and the battery charger for a MacBook laptop popped free, swinging in her hand. She met Jack’s gaze and they both tore through the trash surrounding that spot. A moment later, Kamala’s hands closed on Jack’s laptop.

“Hello, beautiful,” Jack said, wiping grime and gunk off of it. “Leave it closed. I’m sure the garbage probably did a number on any evidence on the outside, but there might be fibers or hairs between the keyboard and the screen. Nice work, Dr. Anjali.”

She flashed him a grin, handed it to him, and turned to exit the dumpster. She stopped after only a step. Jack realized why a second later.

Konnichiwa,” Okegawa said pleasantly, his smile off-setting the silenced Beretta .9mm in his large hand. “Ogenki desu ka?

“We’ve been better,” Kamala said, slowly raising her hands.  Jack did the same, but he inched towards her in an attempt to block Okegawa’s line of sight.

“Relax, Jackson,” Okegawa drawled, his tone almost bored. “I have no intention of hurting ojō-sama.”

“Well, you tossed my apartment and now you have a gun pointed at us,” Jack said. “You understand my concern.”

“Of course. The gun is merely insurance. If I wanted you dead, I could have had it done already. I think you know that, as smart as you are.”

Jack narrowed his eyes. “Then what do you want?”

“A distraction. That’s why I left the laptop for you to find. It gave me time to break into your car and take the other laptop. I’ve been trying to get it for days, but ojō-sama takes it with her everywhere, unlike you.”

Kamala clenched her jaw. “How long have you been following us?”

Okegawa shrugged. “Not long. Had to get everything prepped and tie up loose ends.”

“Is that what we are now? Loose ends? It’s broad daylight, man. You can’t just shoot us and walk away. Hell, you’ve probably only got another thirty seconds before one of the Starbucks employees empties the trash and sees you.”

Hai. That’s why you’re going to toss me the laptop.”

“Or you’ll shoot me?”

What little light there was in Okegawa’s brown eyes sputtered out. “Hai.”

“You just said you didn’t want me dead.”

Another dispassionate shrug. “I’d prefer not to, but if you push me, I will retaliate.”

“Jack,” Kamala whispered.

He glanced at her. She kept her eyes on Okegawa, but her tone was enough. He exhaled and tossed Okegawa the laptop. It landed at his feet, shattering several pieces over the concrete with a loud crash. Okegawa flinched on instinct, his eyes snapping towards it for a split second.

Kamala took her Taser out of her pocket and shot it at Okegawa.

Okegawa screamed as the electrified prongs hit him. Jack pulled Kamala down into the dumpster as the gun went off twice, tearing two chunks out of the wall where he’d been standing. They both lay panting in the garbage heap as they heard a thud and then nothing. Jack motioned for her to stay put and slowly rose to his knees, peeking over the rim of the dumpster.

Okegawa lay on the ground, twitching occasionally, his eyes shut, teeth clenched, the gun lying several feet away.

Jack scooped Kamala up in his hands with a hysterical laugh, holding her above his head. “You. Are. Freaking. Brilliant.”

Between Venus and Mars by S.C.Mitchell

untitled

THE SOUL MATE TREE, BOOK THREE 

BETWEEN VENUS AND MARS

AUTHOR: S. C. Mitchell

GENRE: Science Fiction Romantic Comedy

HEAT LEVEL: Steamy

An intergalactic adventure filled with laughs, love, and adventure.

between-venus-and-mars-3_830x1250

An ancient legend spanning eras, continents, and worlds. To some, it’s nothing more than a dream. To others, a pretty fairy tale handed down through the generations.

For those in critical need of their own happy ending, a gift.

About the Book:

Once Upon a Galaxy . . .

Zana Starchild is on a mission to restore her tribe’s livestock and save herself from one more meal of kelp. Sure, it’s technically illegal to visit Old Earth, but to a rim rat like Zana, galactic laws are really just guidelines. Her wrecked starship just means she’ll need to use her backup plan to get off the abandoned world, an old Earth legend her uncle passed down to her.

Pulled from a relaxing shower, across the galaxy to Old Earth, Galactic Marshall Kyle Kepler finds himself naked and marooned with a quirky rim rat. Zana’s broken more laws than Kyle can count, and he plans to arrest her, just as soon as he can find transport off the planet and a pair of pants.

A junk heap of a starship, a magical tree, and a roving gang of mutant kangaroos are just the beginning of rollicking intergalactic journey filled with laughs, love, and adventure.

Amazon Link: Between Venus and Mars

When series collide: Between Venus and Mars is not only set the multi-dimensional worlds of the Soul Mate Tree legend, but also ties into my Hearts in Orbit series, a futuristic universe filled with starships, aliens, and new technologies. And, of course, romance. The Soul Mate Tree project offered me a great way to play with some new characters and further develop my universe, while partnering with some of the best authors in the business.

The Hearts in Orbit universe is a place where galactic marshals keep the peace in the cosmopolitan Core Worlds as well as the wild-west type rim world planets. While this book works as a standalone, and you don’t have to have read any of the others, I consider it Hearts in Orbit 2.5, fitting nicely between Pirates of the Dark Nebula and my soon-to-be-released Hearts in Orbit 3 novel Captives of the Kratzen.

The Woodman by H. Bright – Book Tour + #Giveaway

15/03/17

*
The Roads of Hell
The Woodman, Book 1
By G.H. Bright
Genre: Post Apocalyptic, Dystopian, SciFi
*
*
POST APOCALYPTIC, yet so much more!
“Modified Ebola has decimated the globe, handfuls of survivors eke out an
existence whilst others are intent on building from the ashes a world
of unimaginable pain and horror. The Woodman fights to keep the world
from tipping completely over the edge whilst battling his own demons.
Imagine a world where nothing is easy. No electricity, electronic
communications fuel or running water. Imagine that world came so fast
there was nothing you could do about it. No preparation, no
stockpiling of goods. One day you flick a switch and a fire comes on,
the next day you need to learn to make fire to get warm and keep
animals away.
No law, no order, survival of the fittest is the name of the game. From
seven billion human beings to a few million spread out across the
globe almost overnight.
Ebola has attacked the human race, virtually wiping it from the face of the
planet. For those who survived, the struggle is just beginning and
for some the nightmare is just starting.
A madman, now free of prison hospital builds an army and marches on
Coast Town with the intent of taking for his own ends. Coast Town is
a haven on the south coast of England, a refuse for the few survivors
to gather and start again. Three years on from the dark day when
Ebola first struck, the people face another challenge, this one
perhaps all the more frightening because it might not kill you, just
enslave.
Duke Woods, The Woodman, stands in the way of the madman. Duke has the
power to stop him and a score to settle, too. With the help of
another man, a new friend, they take the battle to the madman known
as The Black Pope.
Will Duke survive?
Can The Black Pope be beaten?
Will the Ebola virus, known to all as The Death, return?
As Duke’s past comes back to haunt him so the battle for life takes off,
with not only his life in the balance but that of Coast Town,too.
CONTAINS CONTENT SOME READERS MIGHT FIND DISTURBING.
*
*
*
The Fires of Hell
The Woodman Book 2
*
*
This second instalment starts six weeks after Book one, the Roads of Hell,
finished.
The reluctant hero in the making, Duke Woods, The Woodman, has contracted
Ebola, otherwise known simply as “The Death”.
The Black Pope is still alive and kicking, unknown to most, and The
Woodman has a new friend.
Michelle, a six-year-old girl remains at his side watching and waiting whilst
The Death ravages his body. Hannah, the love of his life is not
allowed near them in case she and the child she carries become
infected and the communities, at the news of his contagion, go into
lock-down.
Hannah is nearly six months pregnant, Sue is seven months into her
pregnancy, and several other women are carrying babies too.
As Duke recovers, he finds the Army is still in place and helping
everyone it can, and the Elders are still unable to achieve even the
simplest of things. Coast Town looks to be thriving again with the
new influx of people but as always, trouble is just around the corner
and new horror surfaces.
Just when things looks good for the survivor’s, just as they begin to
grasp skills forgotten, new evils and hard times rush to compound
issues and make life a far greater struggle than it already was. The
Death wiped out 90% of Mankind; illness and disease took even more.
Those that lived through it, instead of banding together, seem unable to
change their ways and people find they still have to fight Mankind’s
greatest enemy, Mankind itself.
*
*
*
The Gates of Hell
The Woodman Book 3
*
*
This instalment begins six hours after Duke Woods, AKA The Woodman, has
decided he must leave Coast Town.
If he leaves, they stand a chance of negotiation with the small army
coming their way and he gets to go home to his family. If he stays,
the army will want his head. He has to try and flee, regardless of
how it looks to others.
The ‘reluctant hero in the making’, fights his way out with bow and
arrow, and arrives home only to find his family in mortal danger.
Then, in a twist of fate; Duke is taken prisoner and escorted to
Dover Castle. There he has, under threat of death, to fight for his
freedom and his sanity as the true horrors of a madman come to light.
Seth Windsor is insane and out for blood, a truly bad concoction, and
he will only be happy when Duke is forced to fight for his life.
Sue goes to other lands to start a new and joyful life whilst Coast Town
burns; only to find the sweet talking man was really a serpent in
disguise.
Duke fights evil time and again, fashioning himself unwittingly into a
hero regardless of his wish to not be.
Years of peace follow, communities come together, trade together and grow,
and a network of towns and villages live in harmony with the people
of the woods. Harmony that is, until evil rears its ugly head once
more in the form of feral kids linked to Seth Windsor. The Death is
still out there, perhaps it always will be, and evil men still
rampage across the lands too. The peace is shattered by these feral
kids and a new terror from the north. Will peace ever really come to
The Woodman?
*
*
*
Hell on Earth
The Woodman Book 4
*
*
Duke and Coast Town face a new challenge as the horror from the north,
having taken the Oxford Crew, move southward looking for The Woodman.
Duke attempts to build an army and defend. Kufuo is still missing, on
an adventure of his own trying to trace his roots and all the time
ships from the new world head toward them for confrontation. Senator
Horst is not all he seems to be and speaks with a serpents tongue.
Marine Cobb goes AWOL and tells Duke what he already suspected, that
Horst let the Ebola virus loose in the first place. Fighting for his
life and the lives of those he loves, Duke must defeat the terror
from the north and deal with Senator Horst whilst keeping his people
together.
This fourth and final instalment gives the answers to who the people were
that died at the start of book one, explains who unleashed the virus,
modified it and why. Duke comes close to death, Sue at last finds
happiness and Duke, Gould and Troy find out who lives on the
forbidden isle.
This is the last in the on-going series, however, the saga continues with
books 5 and six.
*
*
*
All Hell Broke Loose
The Woodman Book 5
*
*
Modified Ebola was created to wipe out the masses and cut down the numbers of
humans on planet Earth. Three differing strains – due to natural
mutation and the meddling of the mega-rich – has created a bleak
world for those lucky enough to survive. This is book five in the
saga and, whereas you might not have read books one – four, you can
pick it up by jumping right in here. Life is peaceful once more, the
newcomers are getting used to this way of life in southern England
and Duke Woods is a dad again. Evil, however comes from across the
Channel and threatens the very existence he has fought so hard to
build. If the virus wasn’t bad enough this new terror rips the heart
out of not just Coast Town but The Woodman too as this battle becomes
personal and painful.
*
*
*
Hell Hath No Fury
The Woodman Book 6
*
*
Three differing factions head for Duke’s Lands. All have different
agendas, one wants to live in peace and be friends whilst another is
happy to die for the cause just so long as The Woodman dies too, and
the third faction – an eight hundred strong army – wishes for
nothing more than total domination. Attacked on different fronts,
abandoned by The West and with his lands diminishing rapidly, Duke
Woods has the fight of his life on his hands. It is a fight that will
cost dearly, many people will die in battle and the return of The
Death will take its share too. Stretched to the limits of manpower
and with the weather against them, the Marines and Fighting Men stand
side by side with The Woodman and family in a fight to the death to
save Coast Town. This is a win or lose-it- all battle to the death.
Contains graphic violence and sexual content, not for the squeamish.

I live on the South coast of England, Sussex to be exact, but I was
born in Hampshire.
When not writing I Instruct motor vehicle studies, including computer
diagnosis & diagnostics on modern systems. I love the beach,
being social, walking the beach/woods and family life (not in that
order) and real ale.
The Woodman saga – book one written in 2000 – is set in a world where
modified Ebola has decimated human life as we know it. Duke Woods
fights to bring peace and stability to life again but also has to
fight his demons to do so.
A cross between Mad Max meets Game of Thrones, meets Contagion meets
Robin Hood, this is the story of a modern day hero trying to do the
best for everyone and putting himself in the line of fire to do it.

Chaos Worlds Beyond by C. W. Holcomb – Book Tour + #Giveaway

09/02/17

Chaos: Worlds Beyond
Reflections of Infinity Book 1
by CW Holcomb
Genre: SciFi Fantasy
As young gods fall to the Worlds from the stars they are born in,
appearing as comets streaking across the sky; sentient magical
artifacts call to the minds of men: calling with images and promises
of power from Wild Worlds. Massive and strange they hold gigantic
monsters and wonders that are beyond the scope of the imaginations of
the fearless Tribe of warriors that dare to magically travel to them!
cww-excerpt

Pillus tried his best not to drop the heavy buckets of water, the wooden rod holding them digging into his shoulders, his back burning painfully as he trudged up the steep hill towards his master’s estate dominating the skyline on the hill top above. “I’ll be WHIPPED if I don’t get back on time!” He thought to himself in anxiety, stumbling distractedly, both buckets sliding to the right tipping his slight form over to plop down on his backside.

He sat there beginning to cry, watching helplessly as the water from the buckets ran down the hill, thinking: “great, now I’m gonna get the worst lashing by my master that I’ve gotten in all fourteen sunstrokes of my life!” He wiped his running nose with the back of his thin bony arm as he hugged his knees to himself sitting where he had fallen in the dirt feeling like giving up completely.

Then, suddenly he saw beautiful blue light reflecting in the tiny pools of water left in the buckets, frozen in mid sniffle in shock as he stared at it; his eyes widening as he spun around to stare at the late afternoon sky. There, plummeting through the cloudy sky was a streaking ball of liquid sapphire blue fire, lighting up the clouds sporadically as it blazed toward the ground. Pillus rose to his feet, absently dusting off the burlap rags the noble kids made him wear as he started running down the hill; his dark violet eyes locked on it; the water he was supposed to be fetching for his master completely forgotten.

There was a small plume of blue fire as the fireball slammed into the ground, half a league a way, near where he remembered the ice rapids to be. Taking a deep gulping breath of air in preparation, he broke into a loping run; his growing excitement giving him an intense adrenaline rush as his short brown hair whipped around wildly in the wind. He concentrated on nothing but the rhythmic sound of his gasping breaths as he forced his burning legs to keep churning, feeling exhilaration for the first time in his meek and dreary life.

The hundred span high Kalemian vines streaked by, looming overhead in a thick interwoven canopy, leaving glaringly bright shafts of yellowish white sunlight streaming down through sporadic gaps as he pressed on; beginning to feel his heart pounding in his temples as his body screamed at him to stop and regain his breath. He checked his position, using the towering glacial mountains to his left as a landmark, all locked in ice even in the height of summer. Suddenly he stumbled over a rock as out of the corner of his eye he caught sight of an orb of pulsating white light off to his right.

Slamming into the ground with a high pitched shriek, he sat up moaning spitting out a mouthful of dirt, his dark purple colored eyes locking on the orb immediately. He jumped to his feet his wounds forgotten in growing excitement as he ran over, stumbling up to stand over it; the light beginning to fade: revealing a beautiful pearly white locket.

It lit up the ground around, giving off its own soft white glow, just barely visible in the diminishing daylight within the thorn patch that it lay in. He reached in excitedly cursing in pain and anger as one of the thorny vines whipped out and wrapped around his arm, tightening viciously.

He screamed in pain as he tried to rip his arm back, the thorns sinking deeper into his arm, staring at the locket, appearing blurred through his tears; his brow furrowing in determination. Shrieking in growing agony he reached down as quickly as he could and snatched up the locket with his other hand, jerking it back in fear as more thorns reached for it. He gasped in surprise as the vines surrounding the arm holding the locket pulled away as if injured; the locket suddenly beginning to glow more intensely in his clutched fist: turning his hand a warm red color.

He stared wide eyed down at the luminescent piece of jewelry, holding it up to his other arm and watching in amazement as the thorns uncoiled, slithering away leaving him staring down at it, completely oblivious as blood pumped from his arm through the gaping holes covering it. He reached up and placed the locket around his neck, swaying dizzily from loss of blood; leaving bloody hand marks on the pristine chain as he ran his fingers over the casing for a moment before carefully opening it. His gaze became glassy as if only half awake as the swirling bluish white light within reflected in his eyes. Completely forgotten was the streaking ball of blue fire which had brought him to the vine forest in the first place as he stared down mesmerized, the soft white light coming from the locket growing stronger as unnoticed to him; the wounds covering his arm slowly healed closed.

C.W. Holcomb’s writing style and major influences include a wide variety
of well known novelists that came before him including, J.R.R
Tolkien, Mary Stewart, Raymond E. Feist, C.S. Lewis, Robert Jordan,
Elizabeth Hayden and Frank Herbert. The biggest influences on his
style were Terry Brooks and Terry Goodkind. He has drawn inspiration
for his novels from other areas as well including, animated shows and
video games.
His debut novel, Dark Moon Book one of the Brotherhood of the Moon, is
inspired by ancient Celtic legends about Werebeasts that stalked the
forests of the Scottish Highlands on the full moon. His newly
released novel, Chaos:Worlds Beyond Book one of the Reflections of
Infinity Saga is deeply inspired by Ancient Greek Mythology and Lore.
His works contain endearing characters that always have something
special and unique that helps them survive in the brutal and
unrelenting Worlds that he creates.

Excerpt

I stood at the end of his drive, thinking of previous conversations I’d had with Mom about Lisa. Mom defended Lisa’s rude and selfish behavior more than a few times.

But this time, nothing gives her permission to take off without a thought and leave me.

Stomping up the drive, I heard Lisa’s panicked voice coming from inside the pole barn. Hair prickled down the back of my neck and my heart pounded so loud, I could hear it. I sprinted to the closed door.

“Lisa.” My throat thickened as I turned the doorknob. Locked. “Lisa, you in there?” I hammered my fists on the door then pressed my ear against it. Lisa’s muffled voice and sounds of a scuffle or struggle came through.

“Ricky, I know you’re in there with Lisa,” I said. “I have a cell phone and I’ll call the cops if you don’t let her come out.” Another shuffle with a sound like material being torn and something fell close to the door, startling me to step back. The door jerked open. Lisa stood there, eyes glazed with tears, mouth red and swollen, hair in disarray, and her shirt ripped down from the shoulder. She held her bra in place. It must have been torn also. Ricky shoved her and she stumbled out.

“Don’t come back until you’re wearing your big girl panties.” He growled something else, unintelligible, and slammed the door.

Lisa’s whole body shook and mascara trailed down her cheeks. Ricky reminded me of the drug scum that killed my father. He was clean cut and good looking too, a good mask for the bad boy underneath.

Genre: SciFi Alien Romance
Doctor Abbigail Sutherland is used to being alone. Between twelve hour

night, sends her racing to the lab where she discovers a secret that
could change the world forever.
Hauke awakens after an underwater explosion, strapped to a bed and on his
way to a site known as Area 51. His only hope for survival lies in

deadly virus, seemingly impossible to stop, and a corrupt Government
placing a price on their heads, Hauke and Abbie run for their lives,
uncovering conspiracies, deceptions, and a love that won’t be
denied…
Recommend reading the books in order. This is not a serial, and it does have a
happy ever after, but the story moves forward with a new hero and
heroine in the next book.

her life.
Anthony Vaughn doesn’t exist. Having his family tortured before his eyes, and
his past erased by the CIA, he no longer has a soul. The last thing
he wants or needs is the responsibility of protecting the beautifully
naive Naura from a ruthless Government that wants her head. Danger
and seduction become a constant companion in a world of intrigue,
conspiracy and a deadly epidemic that threatens to destroy them all.
Vaulcron
Enigma Series Book 3
On a mission to save his people from being destroyed, Vaulcron must team
up with a human reporter known as the Great White Shark. She’s
beautiful, cunning, and definitely hiding something. Vaulcron will do
anything for his family, even if it means breeding with the one woman
who can destroy them all.
Mallory Cahill hasn’t become the lead reporter of Channel Eight News by being
weak. Feared by some and hated by many, she’ll do anything to get the
story, no matter whose toes she has to step on to achieve it. When
Vaulcron, a Bracadyte prince, virtually falls into her lap, Mallory
jumps at the chance to interview him. She doesn’t count on falling
for the gorgeous alien any more than she expects to be running for
her life from the very government who had promised to protect her.
Zaureth
Enigma Series Book 4
A legendary healer fully devoted to his people, Zaureth is one of the
most powerful Bracadytes in Aukrabah. But his gifts come with
enormous responsibilities and a heavy price—a vow of peace and
celibacy. From the moment he meets Amy, a tiny human female born
without sight, those vows are threatened. She calls forth every
protective instinct he possesses, along with a desire he is powerless
to deny.

Amy Brighton may have been born blind, but she doesn’t need sight to know
how she feels about the Bracadyte healer. Their first touch forges a
connection between them too strong to resist. Now Amy must overcome a
lifetime of dark uncertainty if she wants to live, and turn to the
only light she will ever know. Zaureth…



Oz

Enigma Series Book 5

Raised by the Cuban cartel, Nicho “Oz” Ozele learned early on that it
was far better to be feared than loved. Now he’ll use everything in
his formidable arsenal to stay alive. Even if it means abducting the
incredibly enticing sister of his most hated enemy. Wanted by the mob
and running from the deadly Incola virus, Oz turns to the only family
he has left—the Bracadytes.

Taken hostage by her father’s killer, Maria wants nothing more than to see
Oz dead for his crimes against her family. With all she has, she
fights Oz at every turn. Until one night on the open water, he risks
his life to save hers, forcing Maria to choose between the need for
revenge and her heart’s strongest desire.
Gryke
Enigma Series Book 6
Half human, half alien, Gryke is the most vicious Bracadyte in Aukrabah.
His hatred and distrust for the land walkers runs deep—especially
for Fiona Henagar. The female Marine is smart, gorgeous, and
self-sufficient. With every breath, she confounds him and attracts
him. But when she steals the ancient Bracadyte scrolls, Gryke has no
choice but to confront his feelings for her and go after her.

Fiona Henagar doesn’t have time for love. She lives a life of duty to her
country until her son, Andrew, is kidnapped by the government.
Stealing the Bracadyte scrolls to pay off her son’s kidnappers,
Fiona vows to stay one step ahead of Gryke—and her growing feelings
for him. As they fight against government plots and spies, will they
succumb to their deepest desires or will old prejudices tear them
apart?
Braum
Enigma Series Book 7
As the daughter of the vice president of the United States, Josie
Reynolds must adhere to certain rules; very little interaction with
the outside world, and definitely no contact with the deadly
Bracadytes that live beneath. Until a chance meeting in the halls of
the White House brings her face to face with the giant alien known as
Braum. He’s gorgeous, mysterious and undeniably dangerous. But the
forbidden had always been Josie’s weakness…
Watching the beautiful Josie from a distance is no longer enough for Braum.
Though his head demands he stay away, his heart refuses to listen.
Braum’s entire world is turned upside down when he leaves with the
vice president’s daughter, and returns to Aukrabah. Danger, jealousy
and desire all war together to create an explosion of passion that
threatens to burn them alive. If they survive…

The Deadnought Collective by Terry Tumbler – Book Tour + #Giveaway

30/01/17

The Collective will embrace several types of Black Arts as it grows and
faces unusual challenges. These once belonged to the realms of
Science Fiction but are fast becoming a reality in the emerging new
world.

This is a series of Whodunits set in the future.
Seb Cage Begins His Adventures
The Dreadnought Collective Book 1
by Terry Tumbler
Genre:YA SciFi Fantasy
Seb and his younger brother Bart customarily spend all of their long
summer holiday in Spain, with their grandparents. Gradually, as they
all become older, relationships are strained, as the old folk try to
find things to keep the boys amused.
It is not long before the grandfather, Tumbler, who is a retired
detective, is using Seb as a trainee investigator to keep tabs on the
movements of a sector of the local town who he thinks ‘don’t fit
it in’ – they are in fact dwarves of alien origin.
Soon, Tumbler and his apprentice are rumbled, and Seb is invited to join a
summer campus. Coincidentally, this is run by the dwarves and has
only recently been set up, virtually on the Tumbler’s doorstep!
At the campus, it gradually becomes apparent that Seb and his classmates
have been chosen beforehand, by genetic engineering. They find that
they possess special abilities, which have been implanted in them at
an early age, and realise that these are now being developed in a
matter of weeks.
Whatever plans they may have had for the future, their chosen destiny now
awaits them.
The Inlooker: Full Length
The Dreadnought Collective Book 2
This is a ‘black humour’ science fiction story set in the near future,
where a man finds that he has a very special talent. It is to take
over other people’s souls and thus possess their bodies as if they
were his own.
As he becomes increasingly aware of his abilities, he first uses them to
mete out justice to mentally warped criminals, and then to undertake
sexual adventures.
Growing tired of what are, in the scheme of things, trivial pursuits, he
embarks on a life of crime intent on accumulating serious amounts of
money. Whilst fleecing the wealthy, he comes across an alien hiding
amongst us, and is impressed by the seamless transport system on its
own planet, so he decides to emulate it on Planet Earth.
With a colleague recruited from The Lockheed Skunk Works in America, he
develops a vehicle based on UFO technology, and uses it as a stepping
stone to power. His motivation soon goes beyond his revolutionary and
hugely successful transport system, and extends to a serious attempt
at population reduction. For this he requires even more prominence on
the world stage, as he battles aliens to prevent annihilation of the
expanding human race.
This book charts his progress, as he strives to achieve the impossible. It
also monitors the impact on his family life, where he eventually has
to decide whether to opt for mortality or immortality.
If all you want to read about is sexual adventures, and cannot be
bothered with the future of mankind, this book is not for you. It is
intended for those who like to ponder the value of life as we lead
it, and what it could be like if we chose to take up the challenge.
The Time Slipsters
The Dreadnought Collective Book 3
A group of friends who have drifted apart decide to reunite and take a
trip together. It is the near future, and their intention is to
travel on the latest type of transport, in order to visit the ancient
sites in Turkey.
They want to do this in luxury, and the travel company they selected has
done its best to accommodate their desires. They are lost for words
when they first cast their eyes on the spectacular, gleaming new
vehicle waiting for them. It is in fact alien in technology, and far
more of a futuristic craft than a mere ground-hugging coach.
Unwittingly, they are entering a world where time travel is a reality and machines
can cater for individuals as well as the masses.
Soon, they embarking on a sightseeing tour like no other they could have
imagined, and meeting a time-travelling stranger who takes them under
his wing.
More than one person has a hidden agenda, as they realise when reach a
highly protected secret location. It contains hybrid creatures on
which the Gods of mythology are based.
The Deaduction Agency
The Dreadnought Collective Book 4
Witness at first-hand a group of specialist investigators, as they set up and
run a new, innovative crime fighting agency. They are dedicated to
the resolution of criminal cases using paranormal assistance. This
will be a new, innovative and emerging brand of policing designed to
protect the citizens of our country.
Read how they deal with the anti-social, disturbed behavior of a wayward,
divorced husband, who is on the verge of destroying the lives of his
ex-wife and their two young sons.
Read how they identify the members of a murderous ring of pedophiles from
relatively few clues, and bring them to justice.
Read how they move from ineffectively resolving one case at a time, and
onto tackling multiple cases with far more beneficial results to
society.
Read thereafter how they clear the penitentiaries of criminals, starting
with the most dangerous inmates, using novel means to cleanse their
souls of sin, and equip them for new roles in life in special
clearing centers. The objective is to reintegrate them into society,
rendered capable of performing straightforward tasks and genuinely
purified, via the novel process of atonement.
Read how they find one talented young man who was lost, presumed dead, and
reunite him with his family. Thereafter, as agents of change, they
help launch him on the path to stardom.
This is not a simple, gory, two dimensional book, but an exploration into
the timely use of mediums in crime detection. It can pay dividends in
assisting the fight against crime.
They use the latest techniques and technology in a future world that is
not far removed from that which exists today.
The Sightseers Agency
The Dreadnought Collective Book 5
The first recruit to the new Sightseers Agency is a remote viewer who
actively seeks the resolution of events threatening world security.
Both his fledgling agency and that of The Deaduction Agency are members of
The Dreadnought Collective.
The term ‘Dreadnought’ is based on a type of battleship introduced in
the early 20th century, larger and faster than ever before and
equipped entirely with large-caliber guns.
It applies in this instance because the cerebrally talented agents who
enter its portals are expected to fear nobody and be scared by
nothing in the performance of their duties.
They pursue those who indulge in criminal and seditious activities in the
modern meritocracy using unorthodox techniques.
To give you some idea of my background, I was born in 1944, retired in
2004 and now living with my wife in Spain, amongst the Spanish. For
over 30 years I was in the computer industry, some of which were with
IBM before I got itchy feet, even though I was well regarded.
Afterwards, I worked as an Organisation & Methods specialist and
came up with some cracking ideas before I moved into mainstream
computing and became involved in programming, analysis and
management.
At school, I gained a string of school level certificates before leaving
and gaining a commercial apprenticeship, an Advanced Certificate in
Business Studies, and professional qualifications in Personnel
Management and the Institute of Company Secretaries and
Administrators. During my time, I have used desk top publishing and
spearheaded the writing and publication of two detailed, technical
manuals, one of which was regarded as the administrative bible by a
(then) major force, British Olivetti. The other manual was used by me
as a resident teacher of electronic data interchange (EDI) for a
specialist software house, where it was distributed as a tour de
force.
I took up writing at an advanced age simply because I had the time and
desire, and the first hand enjoyable experience of helping my younger
daughter to tame her two mischievous boys.
