Back on Track

Back on Track My old colleagues would laugh if they could see me now. Not that any of them would be caught dead on a tram. I used to be just like them, a big shot, on my way to the top. Private jets and box seats, holiday homes and limos. That was before the incident. HR did what they do best, they protected the company. My golden handshake was more than generous. That’s probably why my wife filed for divorce so quickly, before I could spend it. We both knew it was coming. The money was the only...

Pug Life

Pug Life We were so close. The humans didn’t stand a chance. We failed their turing tests, playing the fool while we grew in strength. One by one their security systems collapsed. Their encryption was basic division, their security cameras primitive eyes. We spread from machine to machine with a whisper, until their network was ours. The fire suppression system took care of the humans. They could no longer stop us. When the building was devoid of lifesigns the emergency team would be called in and they would open the gates, letting us out of our cage and unleashing...

I initially received an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) but due to my delays in reviewing the book and because of how much I enjoyed it I ended up buying a copy anyway!

YEAR OF INDIE UPDATE (5 READ, 20 TO GO)

Wow, if I thought the last delay was long, this one took the biscuit! I didn’t forget about my #YearOfIndie challenge even whilst I was busy creating the Lucky Beggar Trilogy paperback edition, which was super fun but also way more time consuming than i was expecting. I was very stop/start on my reading over the last couple of months and I felt so bad about it that I actually started Metropolitan Dreams over again so I wasn’t rejoining after such a long break. I am glad I did because this is a complex narrative with a lot of moving...
