YA Dystopian Sci-Fi Series - The Spiral Arm

I'm extremely excited and proud to announce a special cover reveal for a brand new YA dystopian sci-fi series called The Spiral Arm. And the reason I'm so excited is because it was written by Peter Boland my gorgeous and lovely husband!

Now I know I'm biased, but the story is A-Maz-Ing. Written in novella-length episodes, each one ends with a cliffhanger, kind of like your favourite TV series. Think Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones etc. Each mini season has three episodes and the first episode will be out this month.

Can't freaking wait!!

So here's the oh-so-stunning cover and book description:

Wren Harper lives on an overcrowded Earth on the brink of apocalypse. There are just too many people. The answer lies 600 light-years away on Kepler; a planet more than double the size of Earth. For decades humans have been fighting another race for its control. Earth’s armies are depleted. So now 15-year-old cadets are sent to fight, trained along the way in vast combat ships. But why has Wren been chosen? She's small and geeky and not a fighter. Will she survive Kepler? Or will the training kill her first?

... KIRK !! 

Congratulations! You've won an amazing 10,000 word edit
from Andrea at Express Editing Solutions.
If you use the 'contact me' form on her page, she'll get in touch with you. 


Andrea also sent me a message to say that she would like to offer a prize to everyone else who entered. Check it out, people, here's what she said:

I'd kind of like to offer everyone a little something if they don't mind it slotting into my schedule rather than me promising to do it straight away:

I would like to offer Farida a 10k content edit, because I know of the plight/plague of having stories that are so close to you and your wanting the validation of someone else's opinion. My author/publisher friend and I often discuss her characters as if they are totally real; it's like catching up with old friends!

I want to offer Ivan and Penelope 5k sample copy or content edits, whichever they would prefer.

Suzy I would like to have a chat with to find out what she WANTED from an editor that she didn't get with her last one to find out what I could offer her that would suit her needs.

Adrienne... I'd like to do a 'consult' with her, find out about the story and where I might be able to offer a little help.

And I'd also like to throw in an extra 10% off any paid services within the next 12 months. 

WOW! Thanks so much to Andrea for her incredibly generous offer. 

So to everyone who entered, if you use the 'contact me' form on her page,
she'll get in touch with you.
