Dying in the service of the Human Legion

Guess some of these titles are going to need altering...I’m quiet because I’ve been busy! I’m over 60,000 words into the fourth book of my new series, The Human Legion. I’m writing this with my new partner, Ian Whates, and that’s going very well indeed.

Just passed 55,000 sales of the series so far in 2015, which is encouraging.

Unfortunately, not everyone has made it this far. Today I wrote the death scene for a favourite old character. I don’t enjoy doing this half as much as some fans seem to think. However, this is military science fiction. To my mind, if you write about the military at war and no one you care about ever gets hurt, then that’s insulting to the real men and women who put themselves in harm’s way on our behalf.

    Can’t you just sacrifice a private or ten?

    • Not lightly. If it’s any consolation, it does lead to a major confrontation between Xin and Springer. And they’re both armed.

        Why not make that confrontation a naked pillow fight instead? Prurient minds wanna know!! 🙂

        Ok, I kid but that confrontation needs to include Indyia so the trifecta for Arun’s affections can be there!!

    I don’t think I like where this is going…….
