Chuck Wendig brings us a scarily prescient masterpiece, that’s sure to find its place in the classic novel lists of the future.
Carey brings us a dystopian future where nature has teeth.
Grind Spark, my pre-apocalyptic dystopian novel, is free this weekend to meet your pre-apocalyptic reading needs while you stay at home
Title: The Boy on the Bridge
Author: M R Carey
From the back: Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.
The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.
To where the monsters lived.
Trump in charge of America.
Boris Johnson looking after the UK’s foreign affairs.
A ‘loose woman’ won Celebrity Big Brother.
You’d be forgiven for thinking we don’t need any dystopian fictions to liven up our day to day wanderings – after watching the news perhaps we’re all bleaked out. But perhaps that’s exactly why we do need them.
Aaaannnnd, after an impromptu hiatus, I’m back, in a slightly quieter Dust Lounge.
But not for too much longer, as soon enough we’ll be finding some new fur-babies to chase away the emptiness.
But, in the meantime, you’re stuck with me and my harmonicas. And we are back in business.
With less than two weeks to go until we hit Halloween, it’s getting closer to the official launch of Grind Spark!
You can already pre-order an ebook copy, but if you want to get your hands on an early paper copy, then here’s your chance. Just enter the giveaway below to win a signed, proof paperback copy of Grind Spark.
The competition closes at 12am on 25th October, then one lucky winner will be chosen at random.
It’s here, it’s here! The cover is done (after much fiddling) and the ebook version of Grind Spark is now LIVE FOR PRE-ORDER at the introductory price of 99p.
I know, I apologise – to be fair it has still been quite hot here, so it’s kind of summer in spirit. Also, life has a way of getting in the way and things happen and then months have gone shooting by along with your deadlines.
So here we are, eagerly anticipating the onset of autumn, and it brings with it GRIND SPARK LAUNCH NEWS.
