Lies for Exiles

· 1 min read

Well, it’s done, launched, released, uncovered, unmasked, fired off into the void! the Traverse has finally expanded with the launch of the first novel set in its universe. Frankly I felt like I’d never actually get it finished but I’m glad I finally made it to this point. It has taught me a lot about editing (and no I didn’t do all the editing myself, I’m crazy but not that crazy), working with artists, book cover design and what it takes to try and do something like this in general. But it is here now.

The story follows a young woman from a species new to The Traverse universe, and her harrowing run in with assassins, bandits and her species’ own unsettling past, if you’ve followed the blog you’ve probably already seen the blurb come up in a previous post. For those who haven’t, here it is:

When Leah left the worldships into self-imposed exile she expected a quiet life working a dead-end job. Instead as every fibre of her being was screaming at her to run, she was picking up the rifle. But even as the mechanical being turned, green eyes boring into her, She stood her ground. Until she found the weapon being torn from her grasp. But as she fled her fingerprints remained on the weapon beginning a cascade of events that will unravel what she thought she knew about her world, her people, and her father.

Lies for Exiles covers

The book, Lies for Exiles, is available as a paperback, hardcover or on Kindle and other short stories in the same universe are, as always, available over on the Traverse site.

I hope you enjoy it, and feedback and reviews are always appreciated.
