NEW RELEASE: We’ve Seen The Enemy by Paul Dayton

It’s been a busy month around the old ireadiwrite homestead – we’ve launched two of our books in print and getting ready for a third.  But I remain true to my first love – digital publishing – and am so pleased to present a wonderful piece of science fiction – WE’VE SEEN THE ENEMY by Paul Dayton.  Paul is a fellow Canadian and he’s written a fast-paced and action-packed story that appeals not only to sci-fi lovers but women and men alike by including strong female characters and unassuming male heroes.  Paul’s use of technology and science is well researched and the book transports us from one group of heroes to another in each chapter – creating suspense along the way and making it impossible to put down.

I particularly liked the ending – which isn’t one at all – but is a “to-be-continued” keeping me on the edge of my seat until the new and final book is available later this spring.  Oh, and by the way, it’s our featured book for the next few weeks – so come and check it out while it’s only $3.99.  Well done Paul and welcome to the family!

An alien ship crashes on Earth; its contents make it clear that the dead ant-like aliens inside were on an offensive mission. As humanity is presented with the prospect of their doomed world, construction begins on hundreds of World Federation ships and extrasolar defense weapons to be used in the inevitable war.

WE’VE SEEN THE ENEMY is set 700 years after the Great War and is a desperate race by a suicide team that may finally lead to the end of this interstellar war. Meanwhile, pockets of left-over human tribes on Earth have their own struggles, as they face power-hungry dictators and warped religious leaders. Behind all this are multiple alien forces, each with their own agenda.

As truths turn into lies and friends become enemies, can humanity unite together to fight their common enemy?

Paul Dayton is an adventurer, traveler and volunteer. When he’s not writing or reading the works of Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke, you’ll find him on a motorcycle, bike or at the top of a mountain.

New Release: THE HAMBLEDOWN DREAM by Dean Mayes

After a bit of a hiatus, we’re ready to launch a slew of great new books.  And here to kick us off is a great new novel by break out author Dean Mayes.  This Australian has a loyal and regular following at his blog deanfromaustralia and we’re so pleased to have him as part of our growing family.

Dean has been writing, blogging and dreaming for most of his adult life, in between practicing as an Pediatric ICU Nurse and raising his two children, Xavier & Lucy (who was born during the writing of The Hambledown Dream). Dean lives in Adelaide, Australia with his partner Emily, his children; and his cross-breed cattle dog Simon.

We’ve had early success with THE HAMBLEDOWN DREAM, and for good reason – it’s a well written, character-driven saga of two men, both searching for salvation in completely different ways.

Australian Denny Banister had it all; a successful career, a passion for the guitar, and Sonya – the love of his life. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer.

Andy DeVries has almost nothing; alienated from his family, moving through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction while keeping a wavering hold on the only thing that matters to him: a place at a prestigious conservatory for classical guitar in Chicago.

As Andy recovers from a near fatal overdose, he is plagued by dreams – memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he’s never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he’s never met, he begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown…
