#NewRelease by M T McGuire Pending.

Yep. I bet that gave you a bit of a shock but it’s true. I have a new book out on this Thursday that ever was. AAAAAND I’m running a giveaway as well in which one lucky so-and-so will win a spiffy new Kobo Glo ereader PLUS free electronic copies of all four novels in the K’Barthan Series with which to adorn their lovely new piece of e-bling.


The book is called Escape From B-Movie Hell and the blurb goes like this:

If you asked Andi Turbot whether she had anything in common with Flash Gordon she’d say no, emphatically. Saving the world is for dynamic, go-ahead, leaders of men and while it would be nice to see a woman getting involved for a change, she believes she could be the least well-equipped being in her galaxy for the job.

Then her best friend, Eric, reveals that he is an extraterrestrial. He’s not just any ET either. He’s Gamalian: seven-foot, lobster-shaped and covered in Marmite-scented goo. Just when Andi’s getting used to that he tells her about the Apocalypse and really ruins her day.

The human race will perish unless Eric’s Gamalian superiors step in. Abducted and trapped on an alien ship, Andi must convince the Gamalians her world is worth saving. Or escape from their clutches and save it herself.

That’s the book, then. Now for the giveaway. There are two ways to enter and I’m going to tell you about the first today and the second  on Sunday.

So, if you are a fan of my stuff and you have already bought the book, entering is pretty easy. There’s a link in the back – just a click away from the menu – which will take you to the giveaway page on my website. If you are meaning to buy the book but haven’t got round to it I’m keeping it at a knock down price of 99p, about $1.25, until 8.00pm GMT on Sunday 20th December, then it goes up to £2.50 or about US $3.99.

No purchase is necessary to enter the giveaway, and I will give out the direct address to enter in another post on Sunday. I’m just giving folks who buy or have bought the book first dibs. That said, yes, you guys and gals, please do share the link to get more entries – I just wanted to give you a head start as a thank you for actually stumping up cash for my drivel!

If you’re reading this and you haven’t bought the book, but would like to grab it while it’s 99p, links to find it on all the major ebook retailers are on this page here: http://www.hamgee.co.uk/escape.html

The main points again. The giveaway runs from now until 8.00pm GMT on Christmas Eve, 24th December. Anyone who has bought the book gets the link first inside the book but no purchase is necessary. I will give out the direct giveaway link on Sunday 20th December.

  1. Cute cover, so what’s it about?

    • It’s about a student, living in London who discovers her best friend is an alien. She also discovers that he’s come to Earth because he’s on a mission to survey the planet prior to colonisation by his species after a meteor strike. BUT, to complicate things, she’s also becoming telepathic which is why he’s there, despite strict orders not to fraternise with the locals. He comes to find her to try and decide if she’s sentient by the standards of his race. And if she is he has to convince his superiors to blow up the meteor an save the earth.

      I should point out that he’s telepathic, too, because he’s from a race of creatures with an exoskeleton and no moveable facial features so they’re all telepathic to some degree and transmit expressions and lots of the non verbal signals we make with our faces using weak telepathic signals.

      So then it’s Andi, our heroine, and Eric, our alien hero (plus his two husbands – they marry in threes because… well… because it takes 3 to!) versus the alien government who are happy to turn a blind eye to the human race’s status and let the meteor hit for economic reasons.

      Er… so… political intrigue? It’s funny and a bit more straightforward in that it’s a humorous science fiction adventure.

      That’s where I’ve been… setting up this launch and finishing the book. You guys must have all been wondering if I was still alive!
