This is a story about Tagret who is waking on the alien planet Meniscus for the first time. Perhaps strangest of all her encounters is with the Slain, Rist, who saves her from an unsavory attack by a Gel-head. Rist is likeable and someone Tagret thinks she could make a life with. But Rist has a secret.

Meniscus: The Knife … Getting the cover ready!

The next book in the Meniscus Science Fiction Series will be released in October. Meniscus: The Knife is ready to go, except for my two scheduled beta-reads and format of the final cover.

The theme for the cover comes from a drawing I did for Meniscus: Oral Traditions. The drawing shows a trio of Dock-winders and a lone Hooplore travelling towards the mountains known as The Flames and The Knife. A lot of my new book takes place on the road to Nebul-nan.

The temporary cover for Meniscus: The Knife shows this drawing.

Today, I finished the painting based on the drawing. It still needs the touch of a professional photographer but this is a poor photo of the finished painting.

And here is what it will look like on the final cover.

Meniscus: The Knife tells the story of Tagret’s quest to find Rist and rescue him from the Brotherhood. Lots of action, twists and turns. The book also includes the story of Don’est (a Dock-winder child) and her quest to fit in with the Humans of Themble Hill.

Soon I’ll post the release date for Meniscus: The Knife.

Stay safe!

All my best!

After a sink-hole forms beneath the Village of Themble Hill, the Humans must find a way to mourn the dead, help the injured and re-build the stricken community. When the Dock-winder child, Don’est, disappears, those who are able join in the search, leaving the task of re-building to the future. However, the Humans are not alone in their endeavors. Mysterious lights suggest the ancient Builders have returned. As the Humans watch, the Village is re-constructed, wall by wall. But it will take the Human heart to turn these marble houses into homes.

~

The story is partly adventure (Don’est the alien child has disappeared and must be found) and partly love story (Tagret and Rist love one-another, but Rist has taken a vow).

meet an alien deity

This week, my new science fiction book will be released. Meniscus: Encounter with the Emenpod is the seventh book in the Meniscus Series.

~

emenpod fine-tuned cover (2)

~

The Emenpod, the Builders, have been mentioned throughout the series. Many times, the Humans in the book encounter interesting landscape features: stair cases built within cliff faces and limestone caves, floating mats of vegetation hovering above the desert, tunnels beneath the impassable Churn. The aliens of Meniscus speak of the Builders as though they are deities.

~

The stairway within the ‘stack’ was built by the Emenpod.

~

In Encounter with the Emenpod, the Humans of Themble Hill face horrible difficulties. Their village has been destroyed by a sink-hole, their people have been injured and some killed, and the young alien child in their community, Don’est) is missing. She is an unlikable child, so hard to understand, but she is lost where dangerous creatures roam the woodlands.

~

~

Almost immediately there are signs a benevolent force is helping the Humans. A strange green light has begun to rebuild the Village of Themble Hill. But when the Humans encounter De-al, a manifestation of the Emenpod, they realize the assistance of the Emenpod comes with consequences.

The books are a quick read, and include both adventure and romance. Oral Traditions tells the story of Tagret’s first days on the planet and her meeting with Rist who has a secret that will challenge their growing love.
