The Backworlds Book Launch Party

A vision of how humanity might colonize the galaxy some day in the distant future?

The Backworlds is here!


The first story in the Backworlds series by M. Pax. 

 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.

Available from: Amazon / AmazonUK / Smashwords / Feedbooks
Other links to more outlets can be found at either Wistful Nebulae or MPax
The Backworlds is an ebook and a free read at Smashwords
and Feedbooks as of now.

It’ll take a few weeks to a free read status on Amazon Kindle. It will also be
available on B&N and iTunes. Sign up for M. Pax’s mailing list to be notified the day it
does go free on Amazon, and when the book becomes available at other outlets. You’ll
also receive coupons for discounts on future publications. 

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, www.mpaxauthor.com and at Wistful Nebulae. 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.

Very impressive video to launch the book. And I am not a sci-fi fan, too hard-edged and frightening to me, as I wallow in the past of Downton Abbey or pre-revolutionary Russia. But I appreciate good writing whatever the genre.

I am wishing the best for Mary! Her story is a feather in the hat for all scifi writers, helping to move the genre forward.

And it is fantastic seeing so many writers pull together to help another writer launch a book!

The writing community is awesome :-)

Glad you made it this far...would love to hear your take on the words scribbled. A comment every now and then keeps the blues away. :D

Since, crazy Mr. Blogspot won't let me reply to the comments here (is upset with the water ladies ever since they refused to verify visitors)...will do the next best thing, drop in to your blog to say my Vanakkam/Namaste/Salaam/Hello.
