Are you ready for Earth Arrested, book 2 of the Earth Quarantined series?

 


Earth Arrested - Book 2

 ARE YOU READY?

A new threat is coming.

Earth Arrested follows the story of Kethryn Miller and Neah, twins who didn't know of each other's existence. One lived a celebrity lifestyle, the other lived in a hidden underground city. The existence of twins is forbidden under Truce Law, and Neah's escape from the hidden city brought humanity's crimes to the attention of the aliens who were keeping Earth under tight control.

In Earth Arrested, the race is on to achieve space travel before the fleet of ships sitting on the edge of our solar system arrives. This fleet contains the Criterion leader, and she is coming to do what the first alien colonists failed to do: destroy all humanity.

Humanity can't surrender to this new alien occupation. But our fragile planet also can't take another war. Then there is an important factor that both humans and aliens are forgetting: there is a third side arming themselves for this coming war, and they have already lost everything.

Earth Quarantined - Book 1

 

 

World peace came with rules. We've just broken them.

Kethryn Miller is an award-winning actress, destined to rule State Seven of a unified Earth, but nothing will prepare her for the role she’ll take on when a strange woman who shouldn’t be alive turns up in the city, threatening to expose the lies that have kept peace on Earth for 200 years.

******

In the year 2055, millions of humans were wiped out by a deadly virus. Our desire and need to get off the planet and into space became our highest priority. However, before any ships could be launched, First Contact was made by an alien race called the Criterion. To prevent this deadly virus from getting into space, they placed Earth under quarantine. Then they herded us into cities so they could control our dying population and the planet’s resources. They saved us.

But they also rule over us. And we've let them because, for the past three hundred years, they have kept offering us the technology to get into space. Yet we're still here on this dying planet.

The Criterion are lying to us.

What they don’t know is that we’re lying to them.

REVIEWS

“Each side hides secrets from each other and the author cleverly reveals each one as the story progresses.”

Netgalley reviewer

​“This is a unique take on the alien invasion trope, with the Criterion advocate, Aries, standing out as the star.”

Aussie Speculative Fiction

”A sci-fi thriller that manages to turn conventional ideas about space exploration, global conflict, and even freedom itself on their head. Fans of Nick Webb may find a new favorite in D L Richardson.” Best Thrillers

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them.  Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for  Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid.  I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do  2 things: #1 Write fast The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters. Then I set a daily word count. I'm

Top 10 Australian independent magazines for teenage girls

First up, I have to say that there aren't 10 blog/magazines listed, only 9. I couldn't find 10 so if you know of any please please please let me know who they are so I can include them on this list. Flicking through the internet for stories is a bit like flicking through a pile of magazine clippings on the floor. It can be fun putting everything you want to read together in one pile, but after a while you might want to sit in a chair and have that pile put together in more manageable fashion for you to read, say maybe like the magazines or blogs the articles were cut out of. Okay, that's enough of that analogy. This article is about finished product of blogs and magazines that compile together a host of articles on subjects a reader is interested in. I'm featured ten nine Australian independent magazines both virtual and tangible which I came across during one of my wild searches through hundreds of internet sites. Magazines have really taken a bashing over the pa

The great Aussie drop bear

Just for fun, I thought I'd write a post about a great Aussie icon, the drop bear. MYTHICAL AUSSIE DROP BEAR A drop bear is a hoax in contemporary Australian folklore featuring a predatory, carnivorous version of the koala. This imaginary animal is commonly spoken about in tall tales designed to scare tourists. Why? Because Australia actually has some of the world’s deadliest animals. And Australians truly are larrikins, so we love a good joke.  If you don’t know what that word is, then you’re missing out on some great Aussie slang.  Here is an  extensive list  of Aussie slang and their meanings if you're interested.  If you ever set foot in the Outback (make that most of Australia), you will hear Aussie slang.  Watch Crocodile Dundee and you'll pick up some Aussie slang: larrikin, strewth, fair dinkum, esky, bottle-O.  It’s like another language.  But that’s not all that Australia is known for. We are also known for our dangerous animals. There is a co
