1) NEWS in 2013: The second volume of the ARIA trilogy is within hours of being released. The ebook versions will come out first then the paperback. The publishers LL-Publications have just moved house from Scotland to Texas and in spite of the upheaval that entails have done sterling work on ARIA: RETURNING LEFT LUGGAGE.
2) The first in the trilogy was voted best Science fiction of 2012 at P&E Readers Poll. Suppose amnesia was infectious? Thank goodness it isn’t but imagine the ramifications if it was. ARIA: LEFT LUGGAGE is the personal story of people, the breakdown of society and yet hope for the few who escaped.
Watch the publishers page for when ARIA 2 is released here http://www.ll-publications.com/returnluggage.html
ARIA is endorsed by luminaries such as Mike Resnick and Jon C Grimwood. I’d like more likes on its youtube video trailer at http://youtu.be/oh0AAXIe8VU

A message from my writing nephew, Ben Bamber:
Hi all – I have just launched a Kickstarter project aimed at getting a trailer done for an animated feature film, based on The Vast and Gruesome Clutch of Our Law. If you feel like contributing that would be great, but if not please Tweet, Facebook etc, the link below, and help me hit my target of £10,000!
All the relevant info is at that link.
My friend and self-awareness guru, Les Floyd is helping me to promote ARIA and other books by increasing my twitter followship. There is now an acceleration in the number of readers, writers and other real people who are in my twitter family. If you want to join in then go to http://twitter.com/geoffnelder
Really this is far too many links for one blog post but at least its over now for a while! I leave you with this picture I took. Enjoy your June!
NB. I notice this is my 501st blog post on this science42fiction wordpress. If I write an average of 500 words per blog post then that’s 250,000 words. Hey that is two novels worth! Ah, but many of these words are reviews of my worthy author friends’ work, and other words are to promote the books I have already written or musings on life and other potential stories. It’s like all the words many of us writers expend on forums, emails, twitter, facebook and as guest posts on other blogs. I could have written a whole new series!
