The Revelation Is Out Now!


In a new City with enemies hiding in plain sight, Honour and his rebel family build their forces. States is hunting them but that’s the least of their problems—Horatia is harbouring a secret that could kill them all, and Honour is dreaming he’s part of a secret experiment. Or is he remembering?

With Yosiah’s secrets catching up to him—so deadly that he and Miya will be lucky to get out alive—Bennet torn between two times and two loves, and Branwell doubting his place in the future, not everyone may reach the next battle.

The Revelation is the third book in the Lux Guardians series, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller with a historical twist. If you like sinister plots, desperate survival stories, and world-changing revolutions, you’ll love this story of family, friendship, and rebellion!

Scroll up to buy and join the rebellion!

When Honour breaches the fence around Forgotten London, he becomes #1 on the world leader’s hit list. To save his life, Honour joins an underground rebellion. But Honour is no fighter, and he may have just put himself – and his sister – in even more danger.

In 1878, when Branwell and Bennet’s genius father is murdered and an invention is stolen, the siblings discover his work is linked to the future destruction of the world. But when they’re transported to a derelict place far from home, how will they reclaim the stolen device?

The Forgotten is the first book in the Lux Guardians series, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller with a historical twist. If you like sinister plots, desperate survival stories, and world-changing revolutions, you’ll love this story of family, friendship, and rebellion!

5 Recent Favourite Sci-Fi Reads


The best sci-fi I've read in a long, long time. Awesome spaceships, great characters, seriously terrifying villain, and you never know if the main characters are gonna survive.


My fave queer supervillain lady! Plus this series has zombies caused by alien-meat-burgers. It's bizarre and fun.


A perfect end of one of my favourite series. Inventive, stand-out alien species, high stakes, and surprising story. Highly recommend/


Sequel to one of the best books I've ever read. This book offers so many questions about what it means to be a person, and it's full of great alien races and a highly detailed world.


Crime bosses and spying and a really dodgy cult AND TECH THAT DOWNLOADS INFO INTO YOUR BRAIN. So exciting.

The Revelation (third in my sci-fi series) will be released May 9th!


It's the last day to get it for £0.99!!

5 Ways The Revelation Surprised Me


Or: A Book Called The Revelation Actually Gives Me, The Author, A Revelation (Or 5)

1

I thought I had the characters and their romantic wants figured out but some characters seriously surprised me and took over their own stories. Bennet and Miya, especially.

2

Speaking of characters writing their own stories ... the ending of The Revelation did NOT go the way I had it planned out. It was much less traumatic and sad in my plan but the characters drove it in a completely different direction. (So if you've read it, blame them, not me...)

3

I set out to write the book with a linear timeline, and unlike The Forgotten (and the next Lux Guardians book, tentatively titled The Riot!) with only one timeline. But I started exploring the backstory of certain characters and a whole flashback timeline expanded and needed to be written. I think the story is MUCH stronger for it, too, and sheds some light on the revelation the book was named for.


4

Horatia is a character I didn't know an awful lot about. I knew the essentials but I really dove into her thoughts and background with this book, and it surprised me how effortless it was to write her as opposed to some other characters (looking at you, Honour and Branwell) and how easy her story flowed. She's now one of the characters I understand the most, and I'm excited to explore more of her POV in the next book!

5

The Revelation was supposed to set everything up for the last book, but whoile writing this I realised there's way too much to be explored and resolved and set up still for The Union, which means The Lux Guardians will be FIVE BOOKS LONG. Five books finally feels like the right number of books for this series, and I have a very fixed idea of how it'll end (here's hoping the characters don't take over again.) I think part of the reason I struggled to write this book was because it was hard to figure out where I wanted it to end up, but I shouldn't have the same problem with the next books. I'm actually looking forward to expanding the world and going new places, meeting new characters, and throwing new dangers at the characters.


THE REVELATION WILL BE OUT MAY 9


Special pre-order price of 0.99!!

Words & Wonders (77)

Welcome to Words & Wonders, a weekly journal of writing updates, links I've found useful or interesting, and book recommendations. I hope W&W will prove to be useful to you writers out there as well as offering an insight into my writing progress for my readers. Don't forget to leave a comment with your own writing progress!

In the Writing Cave, this week:

- I wrote 7,360 of Pride & Joy #2, my f/f witchy murder series. Not bad considering I felt like crap for half the week! Cracking on with this so I'll have at least two to release this December/next January. Hoping for three though!

- I also read Launch to Market by Chris Fox, because I'm really hoping to reach more readers this year than ever. I will say if you're needing some advice with building/setting up a mailing list, this is a good book for you.

In my life:

- Feeling bleh mostly, but getting better!

Discovery Found or Lesson Learned:

This week I'm sharing this book industry prediction post, which is interesting but also could prove to be useful
