REVIEWS
‘You won't be able to put this book down, I know I couldn't and spent nights reading until I passed out with my kindle in hand. This is by far the best book I have read in a very long time.’ John (Wexford, USA)

'This book really was unputdownable. Perhaps one of the best new sci-fi authors I've been lucky enough to discover on my Kindle.' A. Butler "tanj666" (Coventry, UK)

'The plot and most of all, the universe it happens in, are lovingly-well imagined and described. I really enjoyed reading this.' Denny de la Haye "Denny" (London, England)

‘Unique and interesting characters, fascinating alien races and plenty of twists and turns made Convergent Space a thoroughly enjoyable read.’ Warwick Reed (Tasmania, Australia)

'This was the most readable scifi novel that I've read in a while. I just wish his next book was out already!' Simon W M Scott (Northampton, England)

DESCRIPTION
Convergent Space is a dramatic sci-fi adventure / space opera.
It is the first book in a series, with the second book due out in early 2014.
It's nearly 130,000 words. Great value for money.

THE STORY
Jump to a few hundred years from now…

Earth is a faded galactic power in a violent galaxy. Blamed for an event 200 years earlier that destroyed thousands of worlds and turned the galaxy upside-down, Earth has been shunned by galactic society ever since.

Now they have a chance to turn that around.

Meanwhile in the outer fringes of the galaxy, a powerful new force is emerging from the ashes. Ruthless and unstoppable, this colossal army is approaching the central planets with one aim – to cleanse the entire galaxy.

Rone Tintet is one of Earth’s immense army of space-faring investigators. She discovers an artefact that may reveal what really happened 200 years ago and resurrect Earth’s fortunes. She embarks on a journey far from home but will there be anything left when she returns?

In Convergent Space these two stories - one in the past, one happening right now - intertwine into a dramatic and unexpected finale.

The Hunted Heart
by
Carrie Ann Ryan

DescriptionEmeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived. Using her knowledge and research, she helped save the Redwood Pack from devastation. However, she’s never felt whole. Not since she lost her mate so long ago. Now there is a new, younger wolf, entering her life and it will take more than her nose in a book to figure out the warmth in her heart is much more than a promise of a new feeling. It’s fate.

Doing Max Vinyl
by
Frederick Lee Brooke

DescriptionMax Vinyl's type of success story can only happen in America. Rising from humble beginnings, he has reached the height of the computer recycling racket. Problem is, he's using Lake Michigan as his own personal profit center. Even that wouldn't have been a problem if his environmentalist girlfriend Tris hadn't found out his dirty secret. And while Max is devastated by his love crashing down around him, he's about to learn that the rage of a woman scorned packs far more firepower and potential for destruction than he had ever imagined.

Inferno
by
Frederick Lee Brooke

DescriptionWhen 19-year-old Matt Carney saved his girlfriend, Raine, from the crossfire between the government’s increasingly ruthless Homeland Security and March22, a terrorist group taking steps to strike a new, legitimate path, he thought his work was done. Was he ever wrong.

The Billionaire and the Waitress
by
Constance Masters

DescriptionThe last thing Chelsea needs is another guy trying to get into her pants, but Josh is like no man she has known before. It isn't the helicopter rides to his mansion or the private chef which impress her. What sets her heart racing is the way he looks at her—like a man who wants her, all of her—not as a good time for a night but as his for life.

The Haunting of Morgan Harrison
by
Alynia Rule

DescriptionIt was a trick of memory, nothing more; no hidden meaning or sign. He would not believe otherwise, could not accept any alternative. To do so would be dangerous. But Morgan Harrison was beginning to suspect that this building held memory. Somehow, it knew emotion.

And he never should have mentioned he was leaving.


Six Days With The Dead
by
Stephen Charlick

DescriptionNo-one used the ’Z’ word, they simply called them the Dead and for the last seven years they have held the world in their bloody grasp. The group of survivors at the Lanherne Convent in Cornwall, did what they could to make the best of life in this brutal world and compared to many their lives were easy. But when Charlie, an ex-soldier, arrives home with a distraught stranger telling of murderous raiders, they know things are about to change.

Trial by Fire
by
Penny Fletcher

DescriptionRonnie Monroe had lost everyone she'd ever loved including her husband and child, and finally, her twin. Now, in the middle of the biggest government cover-up she'd investigated since beginning her career as a journalist fifteen years before, she found herself falling in love with the two men closest to the story. If the things NASA had recently discovered were released, they would affect every major religious belief in the world. Ronnie stared at the new star projected on the NASA screen. It looked so harmless, pretty actually. No one would guess it was aimed straight at the center of the Earth. But Blake and Rashid weren't looking at the star. Both were staring directly at Ronnie, the passions they shared reflecting in their eyes.
