The Backworlds Book 2 is Out!

The sequel to The Backworlds is now available. Craze and his friends continue their adventures in Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge. See what role chocolate plays in the galaxy this time.

The interstellar portal opens, bringing in a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight, yet the war with Earth ended two generations ago. The vessel drops off a Water-breather, a type of Backworlder thought to be extinct. She claims one of Craze’s friends is a traitor who summoned the enemy to Pardeep Station. A betrayal worse than his father’s, if Craze lives to worry about it.

Available for all ereaders from:

iTunes and Kobo will be available shortly.

If you haven’t read The Backworlds yet, it’s available as a free read from many outlets. See HERE for links. []

Inspiring the words M. Pax writes, Mary spends her summers as a star guide at Pine Mountain Observatory in stunning Central Oregon where she lives with the husband unit and two loving cats. She write science fiction mostly and has a slight obsession with Jane Austen. Mary blogs at

See the badge over there in the sidebar? It’s all about an author exchange where we’ll be swapping interviews and fun facts about the places we live, our books and the inspiration for same. Authors who write for similar audiences will be matched for maximum exposure. The hop will take place during the time of the Olympics.

We’ll be giving away a Kindle Fire, as well as individual gifts of our own. If you think this is something you’d enjoy, see a synopsis below and then hop over to Gotta Have Ya for full details, including the interview questions. See linky list below.  

J.L. Campbell and I are organizing a Kindle Fire Giveaway blog hop for authors only to run during the Olympics. Each stop will highlight a book and the locale where each author lives. Author interviews will be swapped with another blogging author who shares the same audience: MG, YA, women, men, adult, Christian, etc. We will be collecting money from each participant for a Grand Prize Kindle Fire Giveaway, and hopefully some other smaller gift cards and eBooks. If you want to donate your eBook, let me know.

In addition to the main giveaway, each blogging author should also give away something small on their blog: bookmarks, eBooks, Books, swag, gift card or whatever you wish.

We know time is short, but if you like the idea, visit Courtney at Gotta Have YA for a complete run down on the event.
