ENTROPY – Book Two of The Belt Series is OUT NOW!

By | Books, SciFi, The Belt | 3 Comments

Entropy, book two of The Belt series, is out now on Amazon, and I have to say; I’m loving where this story is going.

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

The story continues with the science vessel, Hermes, being urgently recalled from its mission to survey the moons of Saturn, just as First Officer Miranda Lee receives bad news from home—her mother is dying so she must leave the ship and return to Earth—for good. Commander Scott McNabb is so distraught by her sudden decision to leave that he pays little or no attention to the parameters of the new mission being requested by the Council of Europa.

Big mistake.

Powerful forces on Earth are now moving to resume inter-AI communications, risking the development of an all-out war. But others within the System are also mobilizing to prevent them from achieving their objective. Yet, Scott and the remaining crew of the Hermes are totally unaware that they are now at the very nexus of an inter-planetary battle—and ultimately heading toward disaster.

As the mission starts to fall apart Scott begins to realize the enormity of the secrets that the ship’s QI, Aria, has been hiding from them all along. Secrets that could tip the balance of power within the System. He must now put aside all thoughts of Miranda and focus on trying to save his crew—including Aria, as failure to do so could ultimately plunge the entire System into total chaos.

No pressure, then.

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.
