Awesome Sci-fi On A Budget!


 

Two brand new editions of “Black Sunrise” and “The Time Saving Agency” – books 1 and 2 in the Quantum Series by Christina Engela – are now available (along with the entire Galaxii Series)!

“As I’d explained previously, my project for 2019 is to revise and reformat the Quantum Series to the same stringent standard as I did to the Galaxii Series in 2018!” Said local Port Elizabethan writer Christina Engela proudly. “The first two titles – originally written in 2005 – have already been completed and are already available!”

What is the Quantum Series about? Well, it’s sci-fi with a touch of fantasy, it comes with interesting, believable characters – good guys and villains, and a couple that are hard to place – and the stories contain a lot of “heart”… Told in Christina’s own unique style, these books come loaded with what she calls her “warped sense of humor”… which tends to get readers who didn’t see it coming, around corners with a solid left-hook! Her writing has been compared to Douglas Adams and even to the great Sir Terry Pratchett (Focus Mid-South Magazine).

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 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.
