Drumroll, please…

I am about to publish The Thing. It’s not called The Thing, but that’s shorter to tweet, and anyway, it’s changed name a few times.

I did try to do my own artwork – my graphics pen exploded stopped working after over a decade’s trusty service – the results were dire.

After i whined about that on Twitter, Derek (who happened to have read the book and has his own design company) said he had an idea. I told him i had no money, and he said he still had an idea. I loved it.

Cover of my book "The Birthday Dragon"

Briefly…

People are crazy, or they can be, Blood or peasant. Polo’s eyes say he belongs in his mother’s world, but he’s not sure. He gets the chance to find out when he’s sent to the Court of the Fourth Theodore.

The Birthday Dragon is the first book of The Polo Shawcross Journals, and is set on the isolated planet of Galaia in the Sigma Quadrant, where Men might be Dragons, in the aftermath of gene-tweaking thousands of years in their past.

Released on Smashwords in June.

(when released, there will be a decent free chunk to sample
and i will post links here)
