Teaser: Tracker (a new novel)

The count-down continues...

The genre is science fiction.

The setting could be described as "dystopian" or "post-apocalyptic".

For the main characters, it's just another day of survival.

The lights inside the café dimmed abruptly, plunging the outside wall of the building into darkness. Jane froze almost mid-stride, crouching down, low to the ground, every muscle tense. Aubrey imitated her action as best as she could, but she skidded as she tried to halt her forward progress, sending a few small pebbles skittering ahead. It sounded like an avalanche to her frightened ears.

Jane made no move, not even to glare at Aubrey for making that slight noise. It was Jane's lack of caustic rebuke that scared Aubrey the most. They were perhaps two meters from the back door. Did the lights going out mean something? Was it a signal? A warning?

Aubrey didn't realize she was holding her breath until she heard herself gasp. The doorknob was turning, slow and stealthy. The faint light leaking out around the doorframe also vanished, mimicking the extinguished lights in the rest of the café.

Someone was coming out.

Or some Thing.

coming soon...
