Giveaway: Empires Extraction (1/12/2014)

New for the last couple of weeks? Not much. The final edits for The Silver Kings have gone in. Copyediting over Christmas at a guess. Nathan Hawke polished off the Gallow short Dragon’s Reach and some extra-secret bonus material. Gavin Deas attended the Elite:Dangerous premiere and headlined the event, if by headlined I mean was the last person on stage before the night ended, which I do. There have been other developments about which I shall not speak, but which are going to mean quite some reduction in writing time next year.

Also Empires came out. There are some early reviews and articles for the truly committed over on the Empires page:

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

Now to the giveaway: I did Empires: Infiltration last week, so I suppose I’d better do Extraction this week. Yay! The Snarky Spaceships volume!

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 AGAIN. So sue me).

Usual deal – comment on this post before December  and I’ll randomly select a lucky victim for a free copy. This week, since there was a Star Wars trailer(well, sort of) last week, I’m looking for suggestions for things that ought to be in Star Wars: Episode 7 or ought not to be. Or anything Star Wars related will do. 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.

    Obviously Episode VII needs more Jar Jar Binks. In ghost form would be an added bonus.

  2. Tom says:

    they should just make a nerdy incapable sith lord

  3. Paul says:

    Maybe an entire Jar Jar Binks family with added clumsiness

  4. David Brady says:

    Star Wars: if it isn’t broke why fix it? All the villains should be British, all the heroes Yanks and Lego will swoop in and clean up.

  5. Mango Heroics says:

    They should have more cute robots & androids & other AIs in Star Wars, because, well, just because. Go with your strengths I always say.

  6. Dave Dee says:

    I don’t care as long as it has the Falcon.

  7. Aaron says:

    Lens flare. This does not need to be in Star Wars.

  8. Ziva Eschel says:

    Hi, just wanted to say I’m a big fan of your Elite book.

    More ewoks, by the looks of things… ;-)

    The gods of random have done their capricious thing. Well done, “Ziva…”
