Jack and the Space Pirates

Jack lived and worked on EM-05, a steampunk space station found on a major trade route between Earth and Mars. He would spend his days tarring the insides of frigates and galleons, as they stopped for repairs and supplies, on their way to the distant planets of the Solar System. There were very few other children that worked on EM-05 and so it could get very lonely for Jack. However, he did have one close friend, an abandoned cat named Jet, and the two of them were inseparable.

Jack and Jet found that their lives were thrown into turmoil when a gang of space pirates stole a valuable galleon. The two friends were flung into an incredible adventure and Jack was forced to devise a cunning plan to return them both to their intergalactic home.

Jack and the Space Pirates is a beautifully produced children’s storybook, with lovely enchanting illustrations on every page.

Christmas Podcast

Snapshot_021

If you have read several of my eBooks, you might have noticed that I have developed a specific formatting style for many of my works. Most of my stories have a simple narrative thread but they are packed with numerous beautiful illustrations to accompany the text. However, you may have noticed that my last story (The Christmas Penny) deviated from this general trend. The reason for this change was that my last story was written solely for a steampunk podcast competition, due to be released in time for Christmas.

I am very pleased to announce that this story was successful in the competition and that it was selected (with three others) to form part of the podcast production. Incidentally, just by chance, all four stories were based around street urchin characters and so I understand that the podcast will have a strong steampunk urchin theme. If you have children, they may particularly relish this aspect!

The podcast is currently in the production stage and I understand that it is due for release in the few weeks. Of course, I shall be pleased to provide a link when it is finally available for download.
