Gardens Of The Sun, Chapter 7 (i)

Sri Hong-Owen didn’t hear about it until a news bite hit the nets: a brief announcement that Avernus’s daughter Yuli had been taken into custody following a collaborative action between the civilian administration of Dione and the military, soundtracked over video of a tall young girl dressed in an orange jumpsuit and sitting at a table in a bare room with two burly marines behind her. Propaganda no doubt meant to dishearten the resistance. No details about how or where she had been captured, or whether she had given up anything useful about her mother. Sri tried to reach out to Arvam Peixoto, but couldn’t get past an aide who, even though the line was strongly encrypted, refused to give her any information ‘for obvious security reasons’.

Hi Paul, absolutely loving Gardens of the Sun - particularly as I've only just finished A Quiet War.
Really enjoyable and deeply immersive writing. I can't wait to read the whole thing - when is it out and just how many chapters are you intending to preview?
I think it's great that you do but it's driving me nuts not being able to carry on reading!

Thanks though, don't want to sound ungrateful.

Hi Rob, it's out (if things go according to plan) on October 1st, here. Next year in the US. I'll keep putting stuff up every Monday and Friday until UK publication, so just under half of it will be posted.
