New cover art for On The Run

The new cover artwork for my latest book, On The Run; a Harry Heron Adventure, has arrived. Below is a somewhat reduced image of the painting which has taken sometime to realise ...



I must say I'm pretty pleased with what he has done. He's captured the alien nature of the planet a large part of the story is set on and some of the action. So what is the story about ...

Take three young men from a Ship-of-the-line, thrust them 400 years into the future, give them some hi-tech implants, a dash of illegal gene splicing and you have a trio with a different approach to that of their new friends and companions. Sometimes with explosively different results …

Harry Nelson-Heron is, to all intents, an ordinary young man with some special talents. He’s also possibly the only man beside his friend Ferghal O’Connor, from the same age and background, who can stop the Consortium’s plan to ruin the democratic Confederation’s economy and impose their own oligarchy.

Sub-lieutenant Heron and his men find themselves in a desperate race to survive on an alien world – until they find shelter with an alien people and their even stranger ‘Provider’ who helps them create their own weapons and mayhem for the Consortium … Add a mix of frustrating an enemy's plans, guerilla warfare and an explosive outcome and you have an inkling of what is to come.

A fast paced adventure that takes Harry, Ferghal and their friends on a chase across the galaxy and into a very alien culture.

Now it remains to be seen what the cover design team at Abbot Press can do with it. I'm pretty sure it will be a professional job when they're done!
