Moonrise Over Mweelin

By | About Me, Blog | 2 Comments

I just spent a few days cycling the Newport to Achill Island Greenway (Co. Mayo). The weather forecast looked good so myself and a friend piled our bikes into the back of a car and headed off. The weather was warm and sunny, and the scenery was truly spectacular. Here are a few photos of the trip.

Check out moonrise over Mweelin. We were sitting outside a county pub having a well-earned pint when a full moon started to rise over the crest of the mountain. It’s was an amazing sight, and one I had never seen before. 

Achill is an island very close to the mainland and accessed by a short bridge, Achill Sound. The tidal streams here can be quite dangerous as the Atlantic rushes in through a narrow channel.

Mullrany strand is a thing of beauty, with nothing on it only a few cows. I’ve no idea what they were doing there, they probably didn’t know themselves.

The Belt: Entanglement is now available!

By | Blog, Books, The Belt | No Comments

Well, it took me a bit longer than I had anticipated but finally the first book in the new Belt series, Entanglement is out now on Amazon. I have to say; I really like it. After all the edits were done, I re-read it and found myself getting lost in the story, wanting to find out what happens even though I already knew—always a good sign.

It is set approximately a century after the events in the Colony Mars series. Colonization of the solar system has continued, encompassing the central asteroid belt and extending as far away as Europa.

The story kicks off when Commander Scott McNabb and the four crew of the asteroid survey vessel Hermes discover a derelict spaceship out at the very edge of the Belt. It contains a long-lost quantum device that was originally destined for a research colony on Europa.

The crew is instructed to take it back to Ceres so that they can claim the salvage bonus, something that Scott desperately needs if he is to have any chance of clearing his debts and starting a new life.

But news of the discovery is out, and now every power in the solar system wants to get their hands on it—by any means possible. It also doesn’t help that their own ship’s AI has very different ideas for what should happen with this technology.

You can get it now on Amazon for only .99c for a limited time only!

The second book in the Colony Mars series is out as an audio book. You can get it on Audible or iTunes, and a raft of other places I believe.

The third book is finished and should hit the virtual shelves mid August. That will complete the trilogy.

Personally, I’m extremely happy with the series and Nicol Zanzarella did a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. I really enjoyed listening to it… and I hope you do too.

Here’s a link to where you can get the series.
