Book Giveaway: Infiltration (16/11/2014)

This weeks sees the publication of Empires: Extraction and Empires: Infiltration, and since it’s alos Gavin’s birthday (so Facebook tells me), it seems only appropriate that I bow to that and give away one of his books for absolutely NOTHING AT ALL (and hopefully leave the lucky victim to then go a pick up a copy of Extraction, thus availing me of the several pence of royalty payment, hahAAA, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAVIN!) Gav and I also did loads and loads of fun internet things in a futile effort to gain your attention, but frankly I think my best bet is to give away lots and lots of copies of Gav’s book…

Did I mention that you can read the first chapter of Extraction here?

The rest of the last week was spent doing the last edits to The Silver Kings, which now has a rather cool looking cover that I can’t yet reveal because it’s not quite finished and working on Dragon’s Reach. Actually, there’s quite a bit of Nathan Hawke stuff slowly bubblingat the moment, so here, for anyone who wants it and didn’t already read it, is chapter one of The Crimson Shield.

Now to the giveaway:

Covers 4

The covers are a bit of a clue as to the content. I think they’re well suited for what’s inside. In Extraction, it’s basically badass aliens, snarky spaceships and sweary SAS men. I think Gav give Infiltration a slightly darker, edgier feel, but then the novels have their differences in what’s going on around each protagonist. If you like you that sort of thing, the way the two novels both mesh and work on their own is pretty cool (yes I cutted and pasted that from last week. So sue me). This week’s giveaway is Infiltration. There’s a possibility I can get Gavin to sign it, but it’s also possible he may be grumpy about giving his books away again.

Usual deal – comment on this post before November 23rd and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy. This week I’m looking for the most preposterous thing you can think of about any alien invasion story ever.

Although, though no one has yet complained about how long it takes me to get to the post office and post things, it can take a while and if you live abroad then it can take even longer. Sorry about that, but they do get there eventually. Well, so far. Am currently a bit behind.

    The most preposterous thing about an alien invasion story that’s already been told? Or the most preposterous thing I can think of? That they woukd turn out to be humans who left here long ago. Nice fantasy. Distant kinswomen come to the rescue? Cousins come to home to conquer? Either way, bloody unlikely if you ask me. And you did.

    Why do aliens only take over human terrirtories and not like the jungle or antarctic

  3. Tony Geraghty says:

    Why did the aliens in V (original series) come looking for our water, when hydrogen and oxygen are two of the most common elements in the cosmos, and any race advanced enough to develop interstellar travel would have long ago figured out how to combine them and synthesize their own water ?

    I’m sure the middle east wouldn’t mind some alien action if they were trying to take over their territory,isis would beat any alien life force haha

  5. maxine m partridge says:

    all of it really lol. i guess i find that fact that non of them look remotely like humans is pretty odd. or that they have evolved so differently from us.

  6. Mariana Conceição says:

    Why do aliens target modern day America all the time? With their superior technology, it would be pretty amazing if they decided to target an acient civilization. Aliens vs the Mayans.

  7. Bea says:

    The Earth is invaded – he’s there.
    He invades Earth – he’s there.
    Is Tom Cruise a Scientologist alien?!?

  8. Tom says:

    I just find it odd how aliens in the movies almost always attack America first, like geez I know weather in Britain isn’t great but would a little abduction every now and then really hurt?

  9. tom says:

    I’d love to see a fight between medieval heroes like the fellowship or rand mat and perrin against an alien force they’d have a better chance of survival than us

    The most preposterous thing is that it hasn’t actually happened yet. Or has it?

  11. Stephen Rhodes says:

    All we need is Wil Smith and we will punch our way to victory!

    I am making a comment – it is not random.

  13. Hon says:

    Aliens invading Earth? There are many reasons for this? Forget the latest Alien Vs Predator mythologies, and being to wonder if they need natural resources from Earth or to utilise our technology in some shape or form.

  14. David Brady says:

    It’s all preposterous that’s what makes it fun to read novel’s like Empires: Extraction and Infiltration – oh and the fact that Nasa are always blamed for not seeing the (inevitable) invasion coming.

    Nicki wins!
