As well as writing the core Far From Home series – which I’m currently continuing with a series of novels – I am also working with two other writers on Far From Home spin-offs. I plan 5 novels for 2014, not including the spin-offs.
The first is called Operation: Chimera (A Far From Home Series) and is written with Matt Cox.
Here’s his site. Check him out. He’s a great guy: http://www.matthewcoxbooks.com/wordpress/books/caller-107/
It’s set during the 200 year war between the Terran Union and the Draxx Dominion. We’re really cooking up a great story for it, and I think readers of the main series will be delighted with it. This spin-off is being published by Curiosity Quills. As soon as I know anything about cover art, etc, I’ll be sure to share the news.
The other spin-off I’m developing now is called Frontier (A Far From Home Series). I can’t reveal just yet who my co-writer for that one is, but Frontier’s entirely different to anything that’s happened in Far From Home so far. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to reveal who the co-writer is, along with cover art.
So if you’re a reader of the series, this coming year you have a lot to look forward to.

Announcing, Enigma: A Far From Home Novel (Far From Home #13)
I really thought I was done with Far From Home. That’s the truth. As I sat down to finish the series, writing episodes 10, 11 and 12 in one hit, I was glad to be wrapping things up. But I couldn’t quite say goodbye to the Defiant and Captain Jessica King. And the way I’d designed the finale was to essentially reset the series back to the beginning – with the odd change here and there.
So do you continue straight after the end of the series? Or a while after? I settled on the latter and decided that the next installment of the Far From Home series would take place a whole year later. The Defiant has just returned from a 12 month exploratory mission, and Jess is hit with investigating a strange ship (that staple of Scifi: the Big Dumb Object). I thought it was a good way of continuing the series, and pushing it in a new direction.
This is the same ship, the same crew – but as I noted above, there are a few changes here and there due to what they experienced in their 12 month mission, and the video Jessica’s alternate self left her at the end of Far From Home 12: Endgame.
I owe a massive debt of gratitude to all the readers (thousands and thousands of them – who’d have thought it?) who have read and enjoyed the Far From Home series. When I started writing it as a serial, I never once thought it would take off the way it did. I certainly didn’t imagine that when I put together Far From Home: The Complete Series, that it would hit the Top 10 in the chart on only its third day. It’s been quite a ride, that’s for sure. It’s my hope you’ll journey with me a little farther.
The next installment of Far From Home (making it episode 13, though it’s novel length) is out December 2nd. If ANYONE wants a copy to read, completely free of charge, as usual just email me at email@example.com
My best, as always,
I’ve just posted Chapter 2 over at the Nightfall blog.
Be there, or be square.
I’ve updated the Nightfall blog and I think some of you will be pleased with what I’ve decided to do . . .
Bernard Schaffer and I present:
FAR FROM HOME & GRENDEL UNIT: SUN HAMMER
Readers have loved our crossover between the Far From Home universe (mine) and the Grendel Unit universe (his), and to celebrate the fact that Far From Home: The Complete Series has found success in the charts, I’m making Part One: The Eyes Of The Enemy FREE from today all the way up to Sunday!
I encourage you to grab Part 1 for FREE and then get your hands on Part 2: Suicide Planet by Bernard Schaffer to find out how it ends!
You will not be disappointing. And if fans demand it, there will be more teaming up between these two universes in the future . . .
