Click on the cover to go to Amazon.com

Well, here it is folks. The Guardian is now available for purchase in paperback. You can order your copy on any Amazon site as well as on Createspace. If you are one of the minority of people who never buy anything online, (I’m acquainted with one or two of them) but would still like to purchase a copy, simply go to your local bookshop and ask them to do it for you. All you will need to provide is the following information:

The Guardian by Jack Eason

ISBN-13: 978-1515213611
ISBN-10: 1515213617
BISAC: Fiction / Science Fiction / Adventure

~~~

If you buy directly from Createspace or your nearest Amazon outlet it will cost you US$5.38, or your country’s equivalent (£3.45 here in the UK) plus postage and packaging.

You will note that I’ve changed the cover. While I still like the original cover pictured above, to give The Guardian a decent chance to attract readers across the world, I decided to go with the more professional looking one seen at the top of this post. One or two of my fellow writers pointed out that to their way of thinking, the original gave the impression of it being a cover more suited to a horror story, instead of an erotic science fiction tale.

~~~

Will it appear as an eBook? Given the way books offered in that particular format instantly attract internet trolls and pirates, especially when offered for free in any online promotion, I’m sorry to disappoint any of you but it won’t happen in the immediate future. In six months or so, if and when I do decide to offer it as an eBook it will be via Smashwords.

So for now my muse and I are taking a much needed R&R break until next year. We’re both worn out. Go on, buy yourselves a copy, you know you want to. Don’t forget that like any other book out there, The Guardian needs reviews, be they good, bad or indifferent to help sell them.

At long last, another milestone has been reached

The significance of the burning eyes on the cover will only become apparent once you read the novella

I’ve finally reached another important milestone during the writing of my latest science fiction work in progress – The Guardian. It seems to have taken me simply forever to reach this point. But at long last I have finally passed the magic twenty-thousand word barrier after endless rewrites, the way I far prefer to go about writing these days, over any other method you care to name. Why? Because it is how I ensure that no inexplicable turns in the storyline have occurred. Or maybe something was glossed over, (the latter thanks to Bob Van Laerhoven, who kindly pointing out a couple of missing pieces of information to me the other day, after I had asked him to read through what I have written so far) as well as eliminating any punctuation and spellign errors. Damn! There’s one for a start.  😉

Now for the last few thousand words, which like the rest of the story, I’ll constantly be rewriting as I go. Not for the first time has the story dictated where it wants to go next. This time I need to split the characters up into two man teams, which means that the enigmatic guardian would appear to have a tactical advantage over them as it is thoroughly familiar with it’s own home territory, meaning that it instinctively knows every nook and cranny, hiding place and ambush point, unlike my characters. Although I have to say in their defence that they are learning. Maybe it will be triumphant. Maybe they will. Either way I’m really going to need to be on top of my game as I now intend writing the rest of the story from each team’s particular point of view, while at the same time continuing to write it from an overall perspective. A literary challenge definitely not for the faint hearted, if there ever was one. Meanwhile I’ll continue on in the same vein until this particular novella is as error free and near word perfect as I can possibly make it for all of you.

More later

It’s time to get back to work

10816213_776738435708326_2117558725_n

Here’s the cover my friend produced, using an image of the Helix Nebula as The Guardian’s angry eyes.

Well, it’s high time I carried on writing my current scifi WIP The Guardian, my ninth book if you take into account the six tales I wrote back in 2012 for the illustrated children’s book The Adventures of Ursus the Bear, which I had totally forgotten about until a few days ago. Were my best friend Graeme still alive, right now he would be bullying me to get on with it. So I’ll begin once again in the next few days.

Why wait you ask? I’m not completely ready yet, thanks to a touch of procrastination amongst other things, that’s why. I was working at fever pitch until I downed tools a couple of weeks back when I heard about Graeme’s death from one of his many daughters. At the time I was in the middle of writing chapter five.

Now all I have to do is get myself back in the zone once more, pick up the threads, and become totally consumed with the story, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week once again. I’ve put it off long enough, so I have no more excuses not to write, right? Well, maybe just one – I need my sleep! I know that once I get back into the daily writing routine, I’m in for months of  sleep deprived nights as The Guardian and its story swirl around in my mind.

Who would be a writer? All of us put ourselves through so much, just to share our latest story with the world LOL.

Chris Graham, aka The storyreading Ape is the first to add his very generous five star review on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon Canada and Amazon Australia:-

5.0 out of 5 stars Read and ponder! 3 Nov 2014
I was lucky enough to be a Beta Reader of this book prior to publishing and can tell you that it is not JUST a ‘science fiction / time travel / action / thriller / romance with a difference’ story that will grip you from the start and keep you gripped throughout.It will also make you wonder if there might be an element of truth behind the premise of the fiction.

Thank you so much Chris. I hope you will all enjoy reading it as much as Chris obviously did.

The Next Age

This is the latest in my ‘Age’ series:-

Prepare yourselves for a wild ride as you read about an apocalyptic possible alternative future for mankind. The Next Age follows our fight for survival in the thirty-second century. It’s not too late. We still have time to change our ways. This story need not become a reality…

For countless millennia we swallowed the myth perpetrated by the world’s many religions that we were the only sentient species in the cosmos made by an all-powerful God. As it turned out it was an arrogant belief. In the twentieth century, during the period known as the Cold War, between America and its allies versus the former Soviet Union and its acolytes, we revealed our existence to the universe by launching two probes into deep space. The whole event passed into history and was completely forgotten until the thirty-second century, when mankind got a wake-up call that none of us were prepared for…

Onet’s Tale

 

 

 

This 150,000 word science fiction space opera which I wrote while on holiday in New Zealand in 2003, follows on from Turning Point. Unfortunately, owing to an acrimonious split with the publisher, it is no longer available. However, should any of you still wish to read it, I have the original pre-edited manuscript with all of its spelling mistakes etc available as a .PDF file. Just leave me your email address as a comment.
