I’m into my last editing/rewriting of the fourth book of the Displaced. After nearly three years away from this series I’ve managed to get back on it and write the next book. That’s so much longer than I intended, and far too long for me to be happy about it, but it will be finished and off to my editor soon and then out into the world it will go.
And then I’ll get onto book 5…
Of course I’m nervous about it. I think expectations are far higher than I can achieve, but I do like where I’ve taken it – finally. I’ve actually written the book three times, now, and not liked where it started. The other versions seemed to pick the story up much too soon, but oddly, with how it’s turning out, I’d written half of books 5 and 6.
I’m also preparing up for Nanowrimo, so something cool is going to happen there. I hope!
I’m not sure why I bother saying I’m doing Nanowrimo, though. Every month is a Nanowrimo month for me! I guess it’s because I’ve done it so many years in a row.
Thanks to everyone for being patient waiting for this!
The Thrown Away post-apocalyptic saga continues…
Jack is surprised when his imprisonment at the hands of the Junkers is cut short. Instead of keeping him locked up, as he expected them to do for a long time, they offer him a job.
The job means hunting down something that they haven’t been able to find and they believe he, with his talent for locating things, is what they need.
But the item they want him to recover is tech from the old world. What do the junkers need it for? What are the motivations of their strange leader? Is it dangerous? Maybe some things are best left hidden?
And if you haven’t read the story so far you can start here…

No one knows how the world died.
They only know that it happened centuries ago.
Among the remnants of mankind – the people that live and die scavenging in the ruins – it is thought that the strangers who live behind the barrier, inside their protected city, may still hold that secret.
But no one taken by the hunters from the city ever comes back.
For Jack Avery, living among the ruins of the outer zone and scavenging to survive is not the worst of nightmares. Something haunts him far more than any hunter patrol. In one short moment, two years before, something happened that changed him. This story is about his journey through the apocalypse, but also through his own regrets and doubts.
Are there second chances?
Can Jack find the answer to his torment
among the shattered ruins of the past?
We’ve compiled books 4-6 in a second omnibus, now available from Amazon!
