Introducing Blood Ocean

So while I've been busy gallivanting through Europe and California, people have actually been working. Here is the cover of my new novel from Abaddon Books. It's due to come out early next year. One of the Afterblight Chronicles, Blood Ocean introduces a gang of Hawaiians living aboard a floating city of ships. It's a book about courage. A big hug to the staff artist Luke Preece for doing such an awesome job and thanks to Jon Oliver for letting me write the book.

Here’s an Afterblight Chronicles primer: The Afterblight Chronicles is a post-apocalyptic shared world series published by Abaddon Books. All the novels are mass market paperbacks and are released everywhere English language books are sold. The world has been devastated by an epidemic. Although there are pockets of an attempted continuation of civilization, the truth is that the world has gone to hell in a handcart. The reason for this is a disease that has wiped out most of the world's population. It kills almost all those who are not of the blood group 'O neg'. Those people who survive are untouched. Everyone else dies. Infrastructures have collapsed. Mobs run rampant. The only kind of law that exists is that imposed by the people with the biggest guns. In this devastated and chaotic world who can bring hope and order? (From The Abaddon website)

I'm joining the ranks of Simon Spurrier, Rebecca Levine, Jasper Spark, Scott Andrews and Al Ewing. This is going to be great.
