The Murphys are back

Well, actually they aren’t. They’re going far away. But there is an account of their journey now.

Do you remember Henry Murphy, the Air Traffic Controller and his family?

Ballata

Henry and his family find themselves on a small spaceship that is taking them away from Earth. After a stop and another start, the trip goes past Saturn, into deep space. The Murphy family does their best to fit in with the others. Suzy enjoys piloting, Mark learns a thing about farming and matters of the heart, and Hannah discovers her scientist side. Henry gets a job that resembles his old, traffic controller job a little. It’s just on a bit grander scale. After an interesting journey they arrive at Ballata, the home planet of Derlan, Heron and Rajin, and all their other friends. Once there, however, odd things happen.

If you enjoyed the adventures of the Murphys in book 1, Pioneer, I hope your joy will continue in this sequel, “Ballata: Murphys in Space – II”.

At the moment of posting, the book is available at  Amazon and its other local e-stores, Barnes&NobleApple iTunesKoboScribd, and Vivlio.

The paperback is still in the works. I’ll announce that as soon as it’s done.

Wishing you the best of the best,

Paul Z. Walker.

Exciting book news all over

As I already posted, there is a lot happening in the book area.

Naked Crow 9 - Canadian Crow

Next Saturday Naked Crow 9 is hitting the e-shelves. But as if this is not enough, another book will be out soon, being the 21st of this month.

On that day, an anthology will see the light. Lots of it has already been posted on Twitter.

The name of this book: Murder in the Nudist Colony.

Does this sound ominous enough for you?

Let me tell you a bit more about it:

Early in 2020, naturist fiction author P. Z. Walker had the idea for a collection of mystery stories to be called “Murder in the Nudist Colony,” deliberately using the antiquated term “nudist colony” for a slightly retro, humorous touch. On social media platforms, mostly Twitter, other folks associated with the fine network of naturist authors chimed in. Ted Bun put together the call for submissions, Robert Longpré set up the page to share documents as well as the ISBN, Fabien Barabé designed the cover… and we’ve ended up with fifteen submissions within a relatively quick timeframe. Will Forest and Ted Bun volunteered to edit. The project has been a strong example of an online community working together!

So there you have it. I am the one who’s to blame for the whole thing getting to life. I’m very proud of all my co-conspirators who have done so much work to get this anthology to life.

A naked crow is a strange bird

Yes. There is some news about our Naked Crow. About the ninth one, to be precise. Let me show you…

The only thing I would like to add to this information, which is pretty sparse, I admit, is that you should be on the lookout soon. You might spot this one as of June 13th. That’s when I plan to let it fly.

This story has been in the making for a while, but with No More Unsworth Manor Nudes and a few other bits and surprises coming up, that was to be expected!

So note it down, all you ornithologists. June 13th. Of this year.
