Here is Ashel 5, grumpy superwoman, penitential antagonist and big-hearted, heavily-armed lunatic. Isn’t she beautiful? I love all my covers, but wanted to go in a different direction with a new heroine. It was also important that the new cover scream science fiction, but in a way we haven’t seen before. The design is by the excellent JD Smith.
I’ll be reading the first two chapters exclusively on the British Science Fiction Association Facebook page at 1.30pm GMT today here. You can also catch fellow science fiction author Wole Talabi at 1.00pm GMT on the same site.
If you’re interested in the first two novels in the Diamond Roads series, which also feature Ashel 5 and give an excellent grounding for events in the new book, you can get them FREE. Here’s how:
Book One, Sons of the Crystal Mind, is just free on Amazon so hit that link and download it. Book Two, The Outer Spheres, is free when you sign up to my newsletter, which is a mini-mag full of science fiction and fantasy insights, reviews and stories you won’t find anywhere else. Enjoy!
