The race for survival just went off the scale!

 With an elite US military ‘retrieval team’ despatched to capture Cerr, Sena and Bekcha, how can they hope to save Ak-cra, when saving themselves might just be impossible….

From the beaches of Maui to the depths of the Chillagoe caves, the journey continues.

Courier Mail article about mysterious ocean lights

Received an email from a fan in Cairns ….complete with this story about ‘mysterious’ ocean lights.

Thanks Russell (ps. even though it’s not the Bermuda Triangle, I agree, it’s Ak-cra! Major Alistair Daniels is just trying to throw us off the scent!).

Ak-cra: * Imagine * Inspire * Change #globalwarming #endenxtinction #rtaylorward #conservation #YALit #akcra

Albert Einstein: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

From my ‘author’s note’ at the beginning of Ak-cra

Ak-cra is a work of fiction; however, many of the key concepts are based on reality in the context of a world where entire species are lost forever and others cling perilously to survival before slipping from endangered to extinct. We, collectively and as individuals, have a say in the loss of these species.

Our actions have consequences for the planet and the creatures that share it with us—this is what Ak-cra aims to explore.

I am not a scientist and have no formal intellectual basis to be discussing the issues or merits of the global warming and climate change debate. But what I do have is the power of the pen, the power of imagination and storytelling, and hopefully the ability to inspire my readers to start thinking about the future of our planet.

From thought springs desire and my hope for Ak-cra is that its readers are inspired to embark on a quest for knowledge and a determination to find answers and solutions.

For some ‘very, very, very strange reason’ sometimes I see my reviews on Amazon and sometimes they ‘just disappear’ only to ‘re-appear’ at a later stage ………

Here is the latest reviews I could find. A big thank you to Ron Merrin and Kim ….. and YES, definitely a sequel coming.

And please, keep the reviews coming too. 

5.0 out of 5 stars     Fabulous       10 August 2014

I enjoyed the book immensely. A great storyline with the characters being refreshingly aware of global issues that confront us all. The Kindle version is excellent value for money. There has to be a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars      R Taylor Ward knows the meaning of “Cliff-hanger”!               5 August 2014

R Taylor Ward knows the meaning of “Cliff-hanger”! I was just getting into this book when it ended in serious suspense! I can’t wait to find out what will happen next! The world of Ak-cra is cleverly crafted and different to any other underwater world I’ve ever read about before. I love how bits and pieces of the civilisation are revealed throughout the story. The characters are strong and quirky like the CE Trio LOVE THEM! This is a great book to read with kids. My 9yo daughter loved the book specially the idea of aliens living in the ocean. It also sparked a conversation about climate change.
