Save Australia, Save the World.

Three weeks after the outbreak, most nations have collapsed. An ever-increasing number of refugees flee, by boat and air, to the perceived safety of the remote Pacific nations. In Australia, every able body is conscripted, local and newcomer alike. The lucky few are put to work in the new factories, farms, and mines. The unlucky many are given tools for weapons, put aboard cruise-ships and cargo freighters, and returned to the ever-moving frontline. But even though the death toll rises, victory is still within reach.

The recordings made in North America by Pete and Corrie Guinn contained more than the siblings realised. The footage from Canada and Michigan is further confirmation the outbreak was no accident. The Canadian scientist, Dr Avalon, can prove it.

As Commissioner Tess Qwong takes justice to the increasingly lawless outback, Anna Dodson brings order to the chaos of Parliament House, and Dr Avalon works on a weapon to finally destroy the undead. But no plans can survive the impact of a nuclear bomb.

From a lawless natural gas refinery in Queensland to the once golden coast of New South Wales. Behind the barricaded streets of Canberra and in the bunker beneath Parliament House, there is still hope for Australia, the Pacific, the world, as long as the lights remain on.

I’m very, very sorry for the delay. Audible reported having been inundated with lots of new books which slowed their quality-control process. Turns out someone really does listen to all the audiobooks before they're released.

Coming early Jan (or maybe late December.) Book 18: Rebuilt in a Day.

13,000 people have survived the undead, the nuclear war, the famine, drought, perilous oceans and apocalyptic warlords. That was the easy part. For the species to avoid extinction, a new society must be formed, resources found, technologies preserved. Civilisation can’t be rebuilt in a day. It will take generations, but each hour’s delay represents a further step into a new Dark Age.

A journal, set in Canada (and elsewhere) featuring people, places, and events from Life Goes On.

Coming in 2021 - Life Goes On 4 & Book 19 - The story of Lisa Kempton, Team Stonefish, the end of the cartel, and the beginning of a new era. (It’s possible this story might require more than two books. We’ll see how they go.)

A World of Magic (a post-pandemic comic fantasy.): I’ve almost finished the first book, but still need to work out whether it’s a two-parter or a trilogy. To avoid huge delays between releases, I’d like to get the drafts well underway before release.

And in November 2021 - Strike a Match 4: Over by Christmas (because I finally cracked an ace way of telling the story, Woohoo!)


Happy listening, Frank :)
