The Race Against Time

I’ve talked about beta readers before, and how vital they are for Indie writers. Well, Chris James, author of The Race Against Time, has been one of mine for a very long time. And I’ve been one of his since Repulse, the novel that started his climb to fame.

I am now very proud to announce that the latest novel in the story arc, The Race Against Time, is not only published, it’s hit the top of the best seller lists in the UK:

You can read Chris’ post about The Race here, and garden lovers can also check out some truly gorgeous photos of tulips (grown by Mrs James). 🙂

As someone who loves good science fiction, I can tell you that it was hard to focus on the technicalities of The Race because I kept wanting to read what happened next. That’s one of the pitfalls of beta reading when you grow to love the characters, which I do.

The Repulse Chronicles encompass one of the most innovative, immersive and, dare I say it, topical story arcs in modern science fiction. Chris James lives in Poland with his wife and family, and the story is about the invasion of Europe in the future. I say no more.

Congratulations to Chris for a job very well done. 😀

The art of Tomasz Alen Kopera

I just found this gorgeous image on jigsawplanet.com [where else?] and assumed it was computer generated [CG], but it’s not, it’s oil on canvas.

The artist, Tomasz Alen Kopera, hails from Poland but now lives and works in Ireland. Would you believe he started out as a construction engineer?

This is a trailer about how limited edition prints are made of his artwork:

Kopera proves that it’s never too late to follow your passions. Life’s too short for anything less. 🙂

cheers
