Introductions

Hi.  Welcome to this blog and website.  My name is Stuart Collings, and I’m the author of the “Warrior Queen”/Jennifer Hodges series of novels and short stories.  While I first started writing as a child (I’ll tell you more about that in a later post), I haven’t created anything good enough to stick out there for people to see until now.

The first novel, And What of Earth, introduces us to our protagonist, and sets the stage for the subsequent stories.  As I have laid them out, there are several story arcs that fall under one “super-arc”.  Each story will be complete in and of itself, and hopefully, I’ll manage to write them in such a way that people will be able to “get into” the scenario of each story, without having had to read the entire series thus far.

As the series progresses, we’ll see how living amongst an alien civilization changes Jennifer, and, how her presence with them, and how much she sacrifices for them, changes them.

It’s going to be a wild ride–.

  1. Hi Stuart thank you for sharing your books with us. I read both the 1st and 2nd books and now i am looking forward for the 3rd book. Will it be coming out soon?

  2. Hi eskibliss.

    I’m working on the third book. I had to take a break from it because I needed to come up with a plot device that would push the story along. I think that I’ve found one, so it’s just a matter of immersing myself once again into Jennifer’s character and the people around her.

    The working title is Weather Girl, and the hook phrase that will appear on the cover (like They were her childhood dream./ She was our only hope. for the first book) will be something along the lines of “Being from a barbarian planet does have its advantages”. Of course, that might change completely as the publication date draws closer.

    As for when, I can’t tell you. I’ll publish it as soon as it is ready, perhaps 3 weeks after I finish writing it. At this point in time, I’m thinking that it’ll be out early August. I’m a slow and easily distracted writer I’m afraid.

    Thanks for reading the first two books in the series.

    Stuart
