Okay. I warned you…
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,

Do you have a place where people can submit artwork? I’m not an artist myself, but enjoying seeing how other’s envisioned aspects of the books I read, and frequently search for art related to the title I’m currently reading (in this case, Far From Home).
As always, readers can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org – I’d be thrilled to see FFH artwork!
