It’s been a hectic couple of months, but the latest novella in the Synthetic Albatross series has been officially released.
By the way, this is Ben (in case you hadn’t noticed).
I’ve coopted the blog here on AWP for the last few months to promote and share Break/Interrupt, and it’s finally here. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks making deliveries around the Windsor area. I’ve also dropped some copies off at Biblioasis.
If you would like one for yourself (and you do, it looks amazing in person) let me know. I still have some deliveries to make as more requests tickle in and the book is available to order online or from your favourite local book store.
I have a ton of people to thank for this one (as always) and I don’t want to repeat the acknowledgements from the back of the book, but a lot of credit goes to Glen Hawkes for designing and drawing the cover. Also, the book wouldn’t exist without the help of the other fine people her at AWP, so a big thanks goes to them. And I suppose I should thank all of you for reading it!
I think that’s all for now. I’d love to answer some questions if anyone has any, though, so feel free to ask in the comments!
I know that title isn’t good manners, but it’s direct and to the point! Seeing as it’s the season of spending money, we thought we would make a pitch for you to spend some of it on our fine books.
They are, as I said, fine books. Not only are the stories fantastic, but the covers are cool and the print quality is—well, it’s right up there. When it comes to print-on-demand, there isn’t a ton that any author or small press can do but hope for the best and send back anything that doesn’t meet their standards.
But that’s beside the point. Look at these awesome books! You know you want them. All that’s left is to let you know where you can get them, which I will now provide.

Ben here. I was successful in explaining the value of taking turns posting here each month to Christian. Really, I did that update in March and we got a bunch of views and followers out of it, and he agreed that we should have some news on here at least once a month. Thankfully, we tend to have enough going on to warrant at least a monthly update. I was going to post about The Neon Heart for this one, but Christian was nice enough to do that for me last month.
