The Backworlds

Something a little different from me today as I help to promote a new e-book series from an author whose work I have read since getting my Kindle. The first story I read from M.Pax was Small Graces a short piece about a girl who crash lands on an alien world and makes a surprising discovery, it's an interesting read  with beautiful imagery. Semper Audacia was my next taste of her imaginative creativity and I was blown away by how vivid and descriptive a world she was able to offer whilst telling a compelling tale about duty and sacrifice. I've kept tabs on the variety of outlets M.Pax uses to promote herself and her work and she does take the time to interact with her friends, readers and contributors via her blogs and twitter ( @mpax1 ).
I picked up the first book in The Backworlds series today, it's carried on all the usual e-book sources and is currently free from Smashworlds and Feedbooks and for a token amount from Amazon.

The Backworlds

After the war with Earth, bioengineered humans scatter across the Backworlds. Competition is fierce and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze’s father decides to hoard his fortune by destroying his son. Cut off from family and friends, with little money, and even less knowledge of the worlds beyond his own, Craze heads into an uncertain future. Boarding the transport to Elstwhere, he vows to make his father regret this day.

The Backworlds is here!

NEWSLETTER

M. Pax’s inspiration comes from the wilds of Oregon, especially the high desert where she shares her home with two cats and a husband unit. Creative sparks also come from Pine Mountain Observatory where she spend her summers working as a star guide. She writes mostly science fiction and fantasy, but confesses to an obsession with Jane Austen. She blogs at her website, and at Wistful Nebuae. You’ll find links there to connect on Twitter, Goodread, FB and other sites.

The sequel, Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge, will be released in July 2012. It will be available in all ebook formats and paperback.
