Pleased to say things are moving forward on track for a November release of SENTIENTS of ORION in the US from E-Reads. November will be a big month for me as it’s also the release date for the final book in the Night Creatures trilogy, SHINE LIGHT. It also happens to be the month my youngest finished school and I am officially enter a new phase in my life.
ROLL ON NOVEMBER!
I’d like to thank Walker of the Worlds for featuring the covers on the e-book release of Sentients on his website.
And here is book 2, Chaos Space. As the series follows several character threads, so the covers reflect that.
Here is the new cover for DARK SPACE for the E-Reads US e-book release. The series new covers were created by the amazing Austin Designworks! I’ll be showing each cover over consecutive days, so look out tomorrow for CHAOS SPACE.
Well it looks like SENTIENTS of ORION will have a November release on E-Reads. I’m very delighted to be bring the books out through this well established and respected company who have authors like Harlan Ellison, Greg Bear, Piers Anthony and Isaac Asimov.
So immensely pleased to see Dark Space mentioned on Liviu Suciu’s list for 2007. Liviu’s probably one of the most well read SFF critics on the web:
Mark Van Name, One Jump Ahead (2007)
Rhys Hughes, The Crystal Cosmos (2007)
David Gunn, Death’s Head (2007)
Marianne de Pierres, Dark Space (2007)
Shall I go for new covers or stay with the old?
Here’s a mock up Amy did for me a while ago. What do you think of this kind of look?
It’s been a while since I announced the release of Sentients of Orion in e-book form in the US. Things went quiet then because it’s taken me months to organise some admin stuff to do with the release. Finally that’s completed, so I hope to have a release date for you soon.
I’m also very excited to whisper that Wayne Haag (the amazing artist ANKARIS) and I will be doing some work together on the Sentients series release in the USA and maybe other projects in time. Details to come!
For those of you who have supported Sentients during its release in the the Commonwealth (particularly my then editor, Darren Nash), I thank you from the bottom of my heart. As some of you know, I wept blood over this series. I’m so happy to think it will get a wider release. If the ebook sales go alright, then it may be available POD.
So when the time comes, I will ask you to spread word for me.

Over at HumanitysDarkerSide they had this to say about the series:
I really liked all four books of “Transformation Space”. I wanted to keep on reading from one book to the next and had to struggle to put them down. The characterization was interesting and de Pierres style of writing, catching.
