I have spent a few weeks reading your books on a beach in Greece and believe me when I say these books.are an awesome read. I enjoyed the detail and character build up and not forgetting the twists. Looking forward to book 5
Hi Gareth – it’s wet and cold where I am right now, so I have to say a Greek beach sounds very inviting! Thanks for the kind words, it inspires me to keep pushing through the editing process.
Do you have an estimated publication date for book 5? I loved the first 4 and I can’t wait for more.
Hi Jack, I’m glad you enjoyed the first four books. I’m just finishing the outline for book 5 now. It’s hard to predict exactly when it’ll be out, but I generally write one book per year at the moment.
Loved the first three books. But the fourth! Why on earth the barbaric fighting when you have two starships and replicating machines and asteroids as resourses? The debacle on Mars could have been solved without the violence and bloodshed from orbit. Anyway, I will be reading book five just because one, two and three were so good and hope it returns to the old formula.
Hi Geoff, thanks for your comment. I’m sorry our side trip to Mars didn’t pan out quite the way you’d like – let’s see how it goes with Earth.
Just finished book four. Revolution. GREAT READ! Been reading Sci Fi for 50 years from Heinlein to you. All a journey. Thank you.
PS As a former Navy Flyer I look forward to my download of Nugget. –Lee
Thanks for your feedback Lee – glad you enjoyed the story.
Awesome. Just spent 2 days devouring your first three books…can’t wait to discover the answers to all the mysteries! Thanks for this series.
Wow, thanks! I just wish I could keep up with your reading speed!
Just finished Serendipity. Great trilogy. Please don’t leave us hanging on too long for the next set.
Thanks Tim – book 4 is with my editor right now – shouldn’t be far away!
I just finished reading the first three books back to back and am eagerly awaiting the next instalment.
Thanks Louise. I just finished editing pass 1 of 3, so I’m making good progress. It’s an interesting time because I’m going back and reading work I did months ago. I didn’t find myself with a hand over my eyes squinting through my fingers, aghast at the horror of it, so that’s a good sign!
So, I just found these, and I am lucky three of them in a quick row or me. Lol, now I just have to join the other waiting for more. Great series!
Thanks Jill, I’m still writing away on book 4, making good progress.
Hi Dennis –
Enjoyed the first three books, and just registered for the prequel.
Best of luck on the authoring journey!
I’ve just finished Serendipity, loved all three books, can’t wait for the next one. Do you have a timescale when the next book will be available ? And many thanks for the prequel, loving the adventure !!
With best regards,
Thanks Sean, I’m glad you enjoyed the books. I’m at about 70K words into my first draft of book 4, working title Revolution. I think I ought to finish that mid-July. Then three edit passes for me, beta-reading and then it goes to my editor. Realistically, I think November. Definitely by Christmas!
Love all three books, can’t wait for book 4.
Thanks Sam, making good progress on #4.
Truly awesome can’t wait for book 4. Thx
Thanks for your support. I’m about 20% through the first draft of book 4 – it’s definitely coming!
Really enjoyed all 3 books. Would love to see more artwork so I can visualise things better. Perhaps what jack, Jill and hope look like now, and maybe what haven looks like or a map of locations in serendipity.
Look forward to future stories. Thanks for writing.
Thanks Trevor, good idea on the artwork.
Glad to see more are on the way! I just finished the first and imagine I will work my way though the next two pretty rapidly! Glad I found this series!
Awesome, thanks Ernie. Just started writing book 4 today. Look out for your namesake in books 2 & 3!
I’ve just finished “Serendipity” and can’t wait for more! All three books have been excellent reads.
Thanks Chris, I’m currently planning the next three books in the series, so more are on the way! Don’t forget to grab the free prequel story from my website if you haven’t already.
Absolutely love the books. Some of the best space travel books out there. Really looking forward to the release of number 3 which I will certainly be reading. Anyway thanks for writing them.
Thanks, you’re very welcome! Just got Serendipity back from the editor so everything is looking on track for a December release!
Loving the books, agree with the comments above about the detail of colonisation, look forward to book 3!
Really enjoyed your first 2 books, read them back to back in 2 days. I’m looking forward to the next instalments to the story.
Thanks Charles – book three is now with the editor.
Excellent, can’t wait!
Read both books back to back , shame too wait for book three but looks like it will be worth the wait
I think you’ll like it, it’s my favourite so far!
Just finished both book. Enjoyed them greatly. When is book three coming to my Kindle? Thanks.
I found both books really exciting and couldn’t put them down until i finished them. Im really looking forward to the next one.
Thanks Molly, it’s great to get some positive feedback – comments like this keep me writing! Serendipity is coming soon!
The 3 ingredients of a good book: great story, characters you really hope last the journey and, most importantly of all, characters who you would like to meet grisly ends. All in abundance in your first 2 novels which I read back to back. I wish you every success. We all live in the gutter but some of us look up to the stars.
All I can say is outstanding. Read both books back to back in three days and now I gotta wait!!!!!!
Sorry about the wait. The good news is that book 3 – Serendipity – is nearly done. It will take another fews months to come through the editing process though.
Incredible. Simply incredible. I have not enjoyed an interstellar journey so much since discovering the work of Orson Scott Card. I look forward to volume 3!
Thanks Ben. I hope to finish the first (very) rough draft this weekend.
Just read both books back to back and thoroughly enjoyed the two,bit bummed out to find a bit of a wait,so GET CRACKING Dennis!!.Ialso found myself thinking that story would make a rip-roaring film!!
Thanks, I’m still writing. I was hoping to have the first draft done by now but it’s already 10,000 words longer than books 1 & 2 and still not done… turns out there’s more to tell than I thought!
I love both books! The first went into wonderful detail about setting up the colony – something most colonization books dont do. Looking forward to #3!!
Hi Martin, I’m glad to hear you are enjoying the story. There are a few subplots that are emerging that I’m playing a long game with, and the squidges are one of them… more to be revealed in book 3!
I enjoyed both books Dennis and I look forward to the next installment. Curious at the finding of just squidges as alien life on the planet. Seems to suggest the squidges may have been space travellers themselves before experiencing some calamity like our dinosaurs? Just guessing!
Liked both of you Foothold books. Look forward to number three. Great writing!
Thanks, it’s great to get some encouragement!
Thanks, I hope to have the first rough draft of #3 done this year… so soon!
