Welcome to my blog

Hello visitors. On my blog I'm talking about my books, but also about what I'm currently working on and, maybe, some other stuff. Browse through my posts and don't forget to check out my older posts in the archives. If you are interested in my books, please, visit my website Fictitious Tales for more information and a few excerpts. You'll find more excerpts in my old website Herbert's World.

#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.
