#Codename Salamander

I'm busy right now writing my next novel in the new series Operation Stargate. So far, the title is 'Outpost Savanna'. It is not a continuation of #Codename Salamander, but the events take place around the same time.

The Characters are new and the book stands on its own. The background is the universe I created in Outpost Epsilon, which continued with the trilogy 'Lizard World', and, of course, with Codename Salamander. Actually, the complete series is called 'The Spider Wars'.

Savanna is a planet almost identical to Earth, but it is far away from the regular trade routes and close to Spider-occupied space. The Solar Union doesn't have much interest in Savanna for that reason, but the Trading Commission, a powerful Cartel, is interested in the precious stones and minerals that are plentiful on Savanna. The Solar Union's military powers set up an outpost requested by the Trading Commission, but instead of sending regular Troopers they send all the misfits to Outpost Savanna.
There are human colonists on Savanna and they are trying to live in peace with the indigenous population, with is not always easy.

So far, I've written about 11.000 words and things are beginning to take shape and new ideas are coming as I write the story. I have sort of a skeleton outline, but, as usual, the characters are going their own way and I let them. I have created a long list of characters, some of them may never appear in the story, but this way I don't have to spend much time thinking of new characters as I write.

In the meantime, I'd be happy if readers  would buy my other books in the series to wet their appetite and make them hunger for more books in the Series 'The Spider Wars'.

If you've read this far, I would like you to take advantage of my offer. I will give a Free Copy of any of my books in any format of your choice to anyone who sends me an email to hegro@shaw.ca and asks for it.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

No strings attached. There will be no follow up emails and any other annoying communication from me. If you enjoy my books and if my stories take you away in your mind to other places that will be reward enough for me. My greatest pleasure is to share my imaginative journey to other worlds with my readers and I hope they find as much fun in reading them as I have writing my stories.

Sale: Codename Salamander and Bullet of Revenge

My publisher Melange Books decided to have a sale of two of my books.
#Codename Salamander and #Bullet of Revenge are on sale right now for $2.99.
Codename Salamander is the first book in a new Science Fiction series I started. Operation Stargate is a sub-series in the ‘umbrella series’ The Spider Wars.
It all started with #Outpost Epsilon. I always wanted to write a story about an outpost on an alien planet. I’ve always liked dinosaur and I decided to populate this new planet with dinosaurs. That’s how Outpost Epsilon was born. I liked the premise so much and wrote another story about 15 years in the future of that first story. It became too long to be published as an eBook, so I made it into a trilogy, featuring three different characters.
One of the characters, Terrex Stonewall, a Scout with the Solar Union, fascinated me, so I brought him back in Codename Salamander, but he is not the main character in that story, even though he does play an important role.
If you want to find out more buy the book. In fact, start with Outpost Epsilon. You may also fall in love with that universe and the variety of alien species in it.
Right now, I’m working on another novel in that same universe I created with Outpost Epsilon. The working title is ‘Outpost Savanna’, but that may change when I’m done.

Even though I love Science Fiction, I also love Thrillers and detective stories. I also love Westerns. Perhaps some day I will take a crack at writing a Western. Perhaps. There are so many stories I still would love to write, but I only have so much time. I hope I live long enough to write at least a few of them.

#Bullet of Revenge is a Thriller/Mystery, featuring PI Frank Hummer.
Here is the blurb from the back of the book:

When PI Frank Hummer takes on a new case to help a woman in distress, he soon finds himself in a web of lies and deception. Ghosts from the past reach out toward him, demanding atonement for the things he committed a decade ago, things he tried hard to forget.

Perhaps it wet your appetite to find out what it’s all about. Here is your chance. For only $2.99 you can spend a few hours to live in a world of mystery and suspense.
