A space opera book launch… with Lego!

I am proud and excited to announce that Indigo Squad, the second book in the Human Legion series, is working its way through Amazon’s servers to be available from the Kindle Store within the next 12 hours.

It will initially be available as a Kindle book, with a paperback to follow a few days later. The initial price will be 99 cents, or the equivalent in local currency, and I will keep it there for at least a week before raising the price. My intention is to follow this pattern with the other books, to give humanlegion.com subscribers the chance to get each new book at the bargain price.

My son is very excited. He’s been spending Christmas vacation dreaming up Lego constructions, and to help me celebrate the launch of Indigo Squad he’s recreated a scene from the book in Lego.

He’s built a Lysander-Class shuttle that’s rescuing a poor mini figure who’s been blasted into space without a pressure suit.

A desperate rescue mission in deep space.

A desperate rescue mission in deep space.

The wiggly black thing is a rescue tether that reels him in while supplying heated air.


Got him!


Will the rescue succeed? Space is a harsh environment even for the hardened physiology of humans who serve the White Knights. You’ll just have to read the book and find out 🙂

Thanks for all your comments, reviews, and good wishes. I hope you enjoy the second book.



The paperback will be available very soon.

      Thanks, Connor. I hope you like it (well, obviously!). I’m taking a day off today to take my family to see The Hobbit. I’ll be in touch tomorrow about the beta reader team for book three. Have a great day.

    Not quite how I pictured the ship, but bravo none the less!! And hey, he’s the Son of the God of the HUMAN LEGION UNIVERSE, so I defer to his judgements! 👊👍😜
