An alien world teeming with deadly life. And fifteen strangers with no idea how or why they came to be there.From the moment Sam Newman and fourteen others awaken inside metal coffins next to the burning wreckage of a spacecraft, they face a constant struggle to stay alive on a seemingly uninhabited planet light-years from home.Worse, the last any of them remember, they were back home on Earth - at a time when interstellar travel was little more than a distant pipe dream.Survival means finding out who - or what - brought them to this place. Yet what few answers they find amidst the steaming jungles and the ruins of that distant world defy all logic or sanity, and it soon becomes clear something has gone terribly wrong......something that could mean humanity's survival - or its extinction.The thrilling new novel from the author of Stealing Light and Extinction Game.HARDBACK · PAPERBACK · EBOOK

EDITORIAL SERVICESI have more than a decade's experience in mentoring authors and critiquing hundreds of unpublished novels as well as over thirty years of experience workshopping fiction. I also regularly provide structural edits to publishers. I also offer freelance editing services: developmental editing and editing for publication.WHY ME?
I've had more than a dozen novels published by major and minor publishers and been translated around the world. I can bring my expertise to bear on your work.
-----------------
STRUCTURAL EDITING:
I provide a detailed assessment of a novel's strengths and weaknesses based on a read-through of the entire manuscript and recommendations for a next draft focused on theme, characterisation, dialogue, plot structure, prose, narrative tension, style, dialogue and worldbuilding. This is intended to give clients the tools necessary to write a stronger, more readable and more commercially viable draft of their novel.If you've just finished your novel and you need a clear and objective view of its strengths and weaknesses, this is the package you want.£50 + £50 PER 10K (example: 90,000 word novel = £450+£50 = £500)
-----------------
MENTORING:
One-on-one advice and handholding during the process of writing a manuscript and charged on a per-hour basis. Contact for more details.
£65 per hour (example: 10 hours mentoring = £650)
-----------------
FIRST TEN THOUSAND WORDS:
Alternatively, I can provide detailed feedback on the first ten thousand words of a novel as well as a detailed outline of the whole manuscript for a flat fee. £250
-----------------
EDITING FOR PUBLICATION:
This is similar to developmental editing but goes much deeper, and includes line-by-line edits and recommendations on nearly every page, where applicable, using tracked changes in Microsoft Word. Please note that editing for publication is discretionary, and is based on an initial assessment of the first few chapters or pages of the novel and is recommended only for more advanced writers. I reserve the option to recommend a developmental edit instead if I feel it's in an author's best interests. £125 PER 10k (example: 90,000 word novel = £1,125)

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

ROB BOFFARD

STEPHEN P. SMITH

"Gary helped me polish my first novel ahead of submission. His insights and suggestions were driven by curiosity, allowing me to make my own decisions about the edits that meant I was even more confident about the book's shape. As a result, I signed with an agent, and subsequently received a three book deal with a major publisher. Gary's editorial services were a key stop along the way."

After self-editing my book, The Unsound Convictions of Judge Stephen Mentall, I realised I needed the help of a professional. I turned to Gary for mentoring and line editing. He could see what was needed and taught me how to really write, helping me turn my book into a page turner. It’s since been a top five charting topping Amazon book and sold thousands of copies. I highly recommend Gary.

'Gary's editorial recommendations are always insightful and in-depth. He is my go-to editor for all my science fiction novels and his advice always makes my work stronger.'

TEXT TO COME

EYAL KLESS

JON FRANKLIN

I contacted Gary when my manuscript for The Lost Puzzler was very advanced, but I knew something was still needed to be done with it.
I sent the first 10k words of my opening. With Gary's advice, managed to shorten the beginning by a third and refined my ideas. I am sure his help was one of the reasons the novel was picked up by Harper Collins Voyager.

'Gary Gibson offers a first class critique service, whatever the genre you write in.
His critiques are thorough, focused and detailed. He literally guided me through three drafts of my debut novel to a finished manuscript.
With his invaluable help I have sold several hundred copies of my book via Amazon and received highly positive reviews in the Racing Post and Sporting Life book sections.
I cannot recommend Gary's services highly enough.'
