With 65 pages to read, I’m trying to give as much advance notification as I can! 😀
Four AUTOGRAPHED PAPERBACKS of THE KHEKARIAN THREAT will be going out in an up and coming competition. The answer to the competition lies somewhere in the first four chapters. When the question goes out, the first 4 readers to respond correctly, WIN.
I expect this to happen some time next week. Don’t leave it to the last minute!
Those who have known me for a while now will certainly have noticed a huge upswing in my blogging activity in the last month or so, and I know there are some of you wondering how that extra effort impacts on current projects – namely Book Three in the Khekarian series, The Bastard Line.
While the last month has indeed been hectic, things are now settling into a routine that also accommodates my writing. I’m currently putting in six or seven hours into blogging, daily, which covers my morning in Australian (evening time in the USA). My afternoon and evening, then, while the Northern Hemisphere is sleeping, is spent with a further six or seven hours just writing the Khekarian series.
This is beginning to work wonderfully. So, please know, I’m back into the manuscript, I’m enjoying it, I’m editing as I go, and writing onward. It’s exciting to be back at work with this story and I’m thrilled with what I have so far.
The Khekarian series is a collection of separate and very diverse stories told over a period of time in the order with which they unfold – You will meet people from a broad spectrum of society – paupers, captives and slaves, merchants, seers, military personnel, all the way to rulers and conquerors – their lives, their loves, their kingdoms.
You’ll encounter individuals with their own stories to tell, ordinary people, some touched, some savaged by the imperial war. You’ll also meet key players in the strife and struggles as the two empires collide.
The Khekarian Threat starts on a wilderness planet in the Terran Sector, but ends up in alien territory far away, on a planet falling into enemy hands. The first tale is about Aleisha, but it’s also the beginning of Sturn’s story, an exiled Khekarian Prince and his return to power. If you enjoy in-depth science fiction with solid characterization, realism, a vast landscape and full galactic scope, this is the series for you.
Khekarians were a warring civilization. They had a long history of raids and assaults against the Chiddran. In the last hundred years, their aggression had intensified and the gloves were off for real.
Not only were the Khekarians the instigators of a full-blown galactic war against the Chiddran Empire, they also claimed galactic dominance.
They already had most of it, now they wanted it all.
Terrans were the new kids on the block, their whole Sector a poor cousin to the affluent Chiddran Reach. The fear they felt was simple. When the Khekarian Empire finished with the Chiddran one, how long would it be before their attention turned to the young and still pitifully weak Terran expansion?
