Catch Them While You Can


Good morning, friends 🙂
Those of you who have been following current events in my life and writing career will know that my publisher (JEA) has downsized and cut out all non-horror writers and titles from their listing, meaning that my publishing career is now essentially lying on the cutting-room floor!
I will be seeking a new home for the three Galaxii Series novels already with them, as well as my dad’s short story anthology “African Assignment“.
In the meantime, you may also remember that “Bugspray” (my book about VW Beetles) was published a few months ago by LightBearer Publishing, based in Midrand. You may also recall that I recently announced splitting my Galaxii series into two new series (the Galaxii Series and the Quantum Series) in order to make adding more titles easier for me. LightBearer has been busy editing and formatting “Black Sunrise” – the first title in the Quantum Series – for a while, and that should be released soon. Meanwhile, I am negotiating with LightBearer about taking on the Galaxii Series as well, once I have received all the work files from JEA.
The items published through JEA are still available on Amazon.com (although I don’t know for how long) so if you’re looking for what is sure to be a ‘limited edition collector’s item’ in future, you know where to look! (On my Amazon page).

Anything THIS Pirated HAS To Be Good!


Ten years ago, Christina Engela latched on to the emerging self-publishing ‘print-on-demand’ trend on the internet and began to upload her series of sci-fi/fantasy novels onto Lulu.com. The platform was then a groundbreaking enterprise, offering design tools to authors and a free market place for their works. From there they were available for customers to order as either a hard-copy paperback print which was sent to them via mail-order, or to download them as e-books. Both forms would provide her with payment for her books.

Sadly, and perhaps predictably, some of the ebook versions of her stories have ended up being uploaded and shared on renegade sites, where they continue to be made available for free – and even for payment which does not go to the author. More
