Backworlds Blog Tour

Meet Mary Pax of Wistful Nebulae 
below, 'using the big telescope at the observatory' where she works.

MPax is launching her SciFi novel Backworlds today. I was given a sneak preview of Chapter One.

Written in the more direct writing style typical of the SciFi genre, it opens with conflict between the MC, Craze, and his bullying father, who is trying to persuade him to become the emissary for the family business. This will mean travelling into other worlds yet untapped, while the end of the chapter reveals another selfish motive for Bast's choice in his son, Craze, for this job...

How will Craze rise up from under his father's thumb and how will he avoid losing the love of his life, when he'll be many miles away, doing his father's bidding?
It's a promising start to an intriguing premise. Read it and see for yourself...

Good luck with the book launch MPax.

Oops posted two things on same day see below for my blogfest


  1. Super cool Mary :) We've all been waiting a long time for this launch.


  2. Thank you a billion, most-awesome, Madeleine. A very happy Monday to you.

  3. M Pax is an awesome writer. This book should be wonderful. Thank you for featuring her, Maddy.

    And Maddy, did you see the easy-peasy RFW challenge for May 18 - just link up any April post!


  4. Congrats to Mary! I like the name Craze. It makes me want to read it just for the character name. :)

  5. Congratulations to Mary! :)

    It sounds like the first chapter ends with a great cliffhanger . . .

  6. Congratulations and Happy release day to Mary!

  7. A promising start is right. And very intriguing. I want more! ; )
