Coming Soon: “Demonspawn” – The Audiobook!


Hello, friends and fans!

Over the past week or so I’ve been promoting the newly released audiobook version of “Blachart” – and again, if you give the preview a listen or watch the audiobook trailer I made this week, you’ll see (or rather hear) why I’m so excited about it!

“Blachart” is the first book in my Galaxii series, and since the first book has now been released, I wanted to share more about the second book which is being recorded right now by the very same narrator as the first – narrator par excellence, Nigel Peever!

“Blachart” – TWO Audiobook Trailers!


Hello, friends and fans!

Today I want to show you not one, but two book trailer videos – that’s right, TWO!

Over the past week or so I’ve been promoting the newly released audiobook version of “Blachart” – and if you give the preview a listen, you’ll see (or rather hear) why I’m so excited about it!

So much so, that yesterday I spent a good few hours making a new book trailer video specially for the audiobook release – featuring a 2 minute portion of the actual audiobook preview sound file as narrated by Nigel Peever!

“When Darkness Calls” – Actually A True Story


When Darkness Calls” started out as a memoir of true-life events that occurred in December 2011 – events that involved real people, myself included. Yes – what I’m saying is that it was a true story – as a matter of fact, it’s my own recollection of events that occurred at that time.

“But wait,” I hear some of you say, “This is a supernatural story – like with poltergeists and stuff!”

Yes.

Does that mean all that guff about spooks and things that go bump in the dark is true? Well, maybe. At least I think there’s some truth to it. I know I certainly didn’t imagine any of this.

And it’s true.

“Blachart” – A Writing Journey


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and as any writer might tell you, any book they’ve created holds a special place of its own in their heart! It’s no less true for me in the case of “Blachart” in that respect because of how that book is a milestone for me! Why? Well, because it was my first completed and published novel, and also because it’s the first of my books to be released as an audiobook!

You may wonder how I wrote “Blachart”, how it got to be what it is now, what the journey was like – and how long it took! To do that, I’ll have to take you back to the beginning! More

Unleashed: “Blachart” – The Audiobook!


Hello, friends and fans!

For quite a while, readers have asked me if my books are available in audiobook format – and for quite a while, I’ve seen their disappointment when I’ve had to tell them they weren’t… but today all that has changed!

As I promised in February this year, “Blachart” has (finally) been released as an audiobook! It doesn’t usually take this long to go through the production process, and I’m sure the current pandemic must’ve had something to do with it – but regardless, the eagerly-awaited finished product has arrived at last! And – WOW – what a product it is!

Narrated by Nigel Peever, “Blachart” – book 1 in the Galaxii series – is 10 hours 26 min long, and is nothing less than a rip-roaring sci-fi adventure! More

Join the adventure: “Blachart”!


Buy now: eBook Paperback Audiobook (NOW AVAILABLE!)

Life hardly ever turns out the way we expect it to, and for Mykl d’Angelo, skipper and owner of the loderunner Pegasus, it had just taken a bad turn for terrible.

Due a minor misunderstanding, his crew had stolen the ship’s only shuttle, leaving him and two others behind to crew the ailing ship on their own. As if that weren’t bad enough, just a few hours later the rickety old ship’s stardrive exploded in the middle of the middle of nowhere, killing Mykl’s two remaining crewmen.

Marooned alone in deep space, Mykl d’Angelo counted his blessings, offered prayers to any gods who specialized in miracles, and prepared to await (A) seemingly unlikely rescue, or (B) a lingering death…

Rescue takes place, but at a price – as the Antares, a cruiser dispatched to investigate the mysterious silence of a remote starbase crosses paths with a legendary and fearsome Corsair – a man whose name sent shivers down the spines of lesser mortals. Blachart… Blachart the Bloody.

“At times tense, at other times funny, Christina manages to maintain a healthy balance between humour and excitement – producing a first novel that is as easy to read as it is a joy to experience. Truly this is one of the very best sci-fi novels that I have read all year!” – Mark Woods, author of “Time of Tides” and “Fear of the Dark”.

Blachart” is the first title in the Galaxii Series by Christina Engela.
