So you wrote a book. Be it a novel, a collection of short stories, a how-to-braid-your-own-hair-without-a-mirror-and-a-third-hand guide, or an academic research paper about the fascinating night life of hump-backed snails – whatever it is, you need to get it out there where it will be read, appreciated and praised for the work of genius it really is!

The only trouble is, you don’t know what to do next – and who could blame you? After all, you live in South Africa, where almost everything is stacked against you from the start! Besides, you’ve never done this before! Writing is your game – not cover design, working with images and associated software, marketing – and as for the internet, don’t even go there! It’s way too complicated! Right? More

New Release: “Malice!” by Christina Engela


What is it that lurks in the darkness? In the closet, under the bed… or in the dark, abandoned basement of a busy city hospital? The terror is everywhere. It follows us wherever we go – even into the dark, terrifyingly empty depths of space. Watching… waiting… lurking on the edge of sight… What is it that we fear about the darkness? Stick around – you’re about to find out.

New Release: “Bang! Splat!” – a short film by Christina Engela


Christina Engela is proud to present a short animated film: “Bang! Splat!: A children’s story …for adults!

“Deanna is a quaint planet, home to odd-ball quantum physicist Dr. Gleichstein and his little dog Vluffy… and a few uninvited guests.

The Herr Doktor and Vluffy are faced with quite a conundrum – even bigger than the Doktor regularly losing his eyebrows. Their home is overrun by mutant two-headed cockroaches – and not even a hammer will stop them! However will they solve this problem?”

“Bang! Splat!” is based on “Bang, Splat!” – an illustrated story, and features some of the characters from my Quantum Series of novels – namely, Dr. Gleichstein and his little dog Vluffy. Dr. Gleichstein is a quantum physicist – and as everyone knows by now, quantum physics is a little like ordinary physics, except that you spend a little more time looking for your eyebrows.

New Release: “Demonspawn” – Galaxii #2


I’m proud to announce the release of the latest new edition of book 2 in the Galaxii Series, titled “Demonspawn“! The new version has an awesome new cover and is almost twice as long as the previous edition at 51,983 words (168 pages, US Trade size)!

This title is now available via Lulu.com and Smashwords, and should be through their networks of retailers too, shortly.

The story of “Demonspawn” centers on a starship crew trapped onboard their disabled ship, the Mordrake. The situation seems hopeless, and they face imminent death due to an earlier poor decision to battle a ready foe.

Mordrake has six month’s worth of food on board, but less than two weeks of air, and things look pretty grim. Morale, although low before the incident that resulted in their present predicament, is at an all-time low. The ship is not the only thing breaking down however, and pretty soon Commander Joe Lofflin – who has perpetually faced a degree of scorn from his crew because of his sexual orientation and faces a daily struggle to control his romantic attraction to a junior crewman almost half his age – takes on the roll of acting-Captain after the untimely death of Captain Blaine, and must deal with solving a murder on top of everything else!

New Book Trailer – Blachart


Hello fans,

I thought I’d share my new book trailer for Blachart with you!

I did this, believe it or not, with PowerPoint and literally a couple of stock images. Some were drawings done by me of course.

Like a look behind the scenes? Well, sure! Here we go: More

New Release: “Blachart” – Galaxii #1


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and this book is in that respect a milestone for me. Why? Well, you may ask that question, but the answer isn’t a simple one.

While you may recognize the name of this book, “Blachart“, you won’t recognize the cover! If you read it before, and were to read it again now, you would notice a few changes. For one thing, there are illustrations in color (eBook versions), and while the plot remains unchanged, the flow of events within are more refined and there is a good deal more story to it. The book is also a good deal longer than it was before – nearly twice the length as a matter of fact. This is book 1 in the Galaxii Series, titled “Blachart“, and the new version is now available via Lulu.com and Smashwords, and should be through their networks of retailers too, shortly.
