Divided Serenity (Divided World Book One)

He had waited ten years for revenge, they had waited eons.

John Tanis dreams of killing the man responsible for his exile.

Once loyal to the civilized Aterra, Tanis now fights for Shadowland. But the mysterious arrival of technology outside the wall heralds change.

With the dividing wall failing his new loyalties will be tested, and he must choose between revenge and saving the people he once loved.


Serenity Falling (Divided World Book Two)

Revenge is only the beginning.

Hannah thought her work in Shadowland was complete. Station 54 was operational and Aterra was once more safe. There is just one problem…no one in Aterra knows, and Bill is determined to proceed with the war.

With the door to Aterra closed, Hannah and the team head to Thale, the largest and most prestigious of the five great fortresses. But the mysterious return of a badly beaten Marcus has everyone on edge.
The people of Aterra remain ignorant of what is happening beyond their protective wall, but Theo and Nate are determined to uncover the details of Bill’s covert operations in Shadowland. That will mean infiltrating Bill’s private home. And what they uncover will make them question who is really to blame for the enduring conflict between Bill Bremmer and John Tanis.


Revealing Serenity (Divided World Book Three) 

Revenge at any cost.

With the wall once more inoperative and their weapons disabled, Aterra’s war on Shadowland is over.

Bill’s plans may be in disarray and his internal power slipping, but he is a man who knows how to adapt. He still holds the mighty Jaru war-tribe under his tenuous control, and now sets his sights on the fortress leaders as future allies in a common quest for revenge against John Tanis.

But Bill isn’t the only one interested in the Jaru war-tribe and their despot leader Ailey, and the mysterious Outliers have plans of their own.

A fast, exciting if bloody read!

AMAZON 4STAR REVIEW

A tense, gripping dystopian novel

Goodreads 5STAR REVIEW

Not a new concept – haves vs have nots, but the characters are rich, and the writing is crisp, clean, and colorful. The story is engaging, and using the characters to move the plot forward keeps the pages turning. Any book that entertains while forcing you to consider new possibilities is a winner, and Divided Serenity fits the bill.

About the book

He had waited ten years to seek his revenge.

They had waited eons. 

Serenity had been divided as far back as the histories tell.

The Aterran settlers live inside the wall with technology. While the native Shadowlanders and the Jaru live outside the wall with none.

Welcome to Serenity.

Ten years have passed since John Tanis tried to kill his best friend Bill Bremmer. Not finishing the job is his only regret. Exiled from Aterra, Tanis has fought for survival and acceptance in the uncivilized Shadowland.

The Shadowlanders and the Jaru live in a perpetual state of war, but when the scattered tribes of the Jaru begin to unite the delicate balance is tipped. Aterra is also suffering, as a native sympathizer uprising decimates cities in a spate of bombing attacks.

Finding technology outside the wall, Tanis is suspicious that his former friend may have a hand in the troubles engulfing his land. He would relish any opportunity to settle that old score, an opportunity that could never happen . . .

Until the day Aterra lost the wall.

Amazon to start paying per pages read

I thought this an interesting change from Amazon, and for once it makes a lot of sense. In summary, from 1st July 2015 Amazon will be paying Kindle Unlimited (KU) and Kindle Owners’ Lending Library (KOLL) royalties based on qualified borrows, to paying based on the number of pages read

Some examples of how it would work if the fund was $10M and 100,000,000 total pages were read in the month:

  • The author of a 100 page book that was borrowed and read completely 100 times would earn $1,000 ($10 million multiplied by 10,000 pages for this author divided by 100,000,000 total pages).
  • The author of a 200 page book that was borrowed and read completely 100 times would earn $2,000 ($10 million multiplied by 20,000 pages for this author divided by 100,000,000 total pages).
  • The author of a 200 page book that was borrowed 100 times but only read halfway through on average would earn $1,000 ($10 million multiplied by 10,000 pages for this author divided by 100,000,000 total pages).

From a personal perspective, this seems infinitely fair. I cannot help but wonder if it is time we started to apply this to all book royalties. I know from a personal point of view there plenty of times that I have bought a book, even after reading the free opening pages, only to be totally disappointed soon after hitting the ‘Buy’. At this point I either try and persevere, or give up, and tag it up as a never buy this author again.

A pages read perspective for all book royalties, would:

  • Mean good work and a well rounded story was rewarded.
  • People are less worried about giving a book a go, even from indie authors, because they only pay if they continue to read.

I know if I was given this option as a book reader I would take it, and as a future book seller, it would encourage me to produce a quality product.

Editing costs are on a word count, so perhaps it’s time to shake up the system, and apply the same principle to the way we pay for reading all book.
