Something bloody wicked this way comes, boys and girls. Last autumn brought you Ruin, the first instalment in the epic post-apocalyptic adventure, the Ruin Saga. This summer brings you Brink, picking up where Ruin left off, re-joining Alexander Cain, Norman Creek, and the people of New Canterbury, in their struggle for survival.
Earth has been almost silent for forty years. The apocalypse left behind only fragments of civilisation, surrounded by a sea of barbarism.
But now the true End is in sight: the horizon is alight with burning villages, two cities lie in the shadow of an army gathering in the north, intent on ending the old world forever. And somewhere, a supernatural force is on the move, pushing its servants into place: a young girl with special powers, and a man whose destiny might decide the fate of all.
While ominous swarms of pigeons plague the sky, the world becomes slowly quieter, and dark forgotten secrets are revealed – secrets of betrayal, love, and obsession – the army in the north prepares to leave.
The epic Ruin Saga continues…
The manuscript is complete, edited, and is currently with the proofreader. I have a few beta-readers lined up in the next week or two (if you’re one of them, thank you for being so wonderful!), and after that I’ll be tinkering around with finishing touches, before beginning the run-up to release.
I’ll be running a few giveaways and other goodie-bags as we get closer to the big opening, and I can’t wait to share this story with you all. This is definitely a ripping sequel, and the pace really picks up from the first instalment.
We’re aiming for a June/July release. That’s still a way off, so here’s something to whet your appetite.
The Cover Reveal
Look at that thing!
Levente Szabo, my cover designer, has delivered yet another piece of gorgeous artwork.
I’m in love with this cover, and I’m thrilled to be privileged enough to have it on the cover of a book I’m so proud of.
Keep an eye out for some sneak peeks of the story in the next few weeks!
Anybody who wants to get in on beta-reading, there’s still a few days to get in touch and get yourself on the list.
Ruin will be on a free run from 21st-23rd April, so if any of you know some apocalypse fans who like a freebie or two, send them over to get their copy!
Until then, keep drooling over that cover.
