On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Gethyon - #1 Bestseller at Omnilit
Hello again! Thanks for all the lovely comments and congrats last week - they were awesome. I had great news this week - not only did Gethyon go up at Omnilit for pre-order, but 12 hours later it hit number one on the bestsellers list. Squee! It isn't even out yet! But just two more days until release. :)
So, last week my young hero had arrived in the middle of somewhere by means unknown. But he's not given any chance to get his bearings...

“Hey!”
Gethyon dragged his head around toward the speaker, forcing his eyes to focus. Cold shock drenched him at the sight of two uniformed men between him and the nearest edifice, one warden aiming a finger straight at him.
“Hey, no unauthorized teleportation in the plaza!”
Gethyon turned and ran. Shouts from behind told him pursuit followed. He dodged between the idling crowds, staggering as his legs threatened to give way. Dazed and confused, he tried to work out what had happened. He had done it again—sent himself elsewhere—but how? What was he?

Poor Gethyon! Hope you enjoyed that, and if you want more hit the page button for Gethyon just below the banner, or the Excerpt link under the book cover on the right hand side.

  1. Great snippet...that would be a big problem, being teleported somewhere without your prior knowledge.

    Congratulations on the best-seller status May it stay there for a long time!

  2. Yup. The only thing worse than getting caught for unauthorized teleporting - is not knowing how you did it (hate when that happens).
