Get back, get back

Get Backworlds where you once belonged...
(okay, maybe that didn't really work...) but it just seems like there should be some opening music, a drumroll, a strobe light to give Mary the splash she deserves because...

The Backworlds is here!

The first story in the Backworlds series by M. Pax. A vision of how humanity might colonize the galaxy some day in the distant future.

The Backworlds
After the war with Earth, bioengineered humans scatter across the Backworlds. Competition is fierce and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze’s father decides to hoard his fortune by destroying his son. Cut off from family and friends, with little money, and even less knowledge of the worlds beyond his own, Craze heads into an uncertain future. Boarding the transport to Elstwhere, he vows to make his father regret this day.

Available from: Amazon / AmazonUK / Smashwords / Feedbooks

The Backworlds is an ebook and a free read. All formats can be found at Smashwords and Feedbooks.

It’ll take a few weeks to work its way down to free on Amazon Kindle. It will also be available on B&N and iTunes. Sign up for M. Pax’s mailing list to be notified the day it does go free on Amazon, and when the book becomes available at other outlets. You’ll also receive coupons for discounts on future publications. NEWSLETTER

M. Pax’s inspiration comes from the wilds of Oregon, especially the high desert where she shares her home with two cats and a husband unit. Creative sparks also come from Pine Mountain Observatory where she spend her summers working as a star guide. She writes mostly science fiction and fantasy, but confesses to an obsession with Jane Austen. She blogs at her website, and at Wistful Nebuae. You’ll find links there to connect on Twitter, Goodread, FB and other sites.

The sequel, Stopover at the Backworlds’ Edge, will be released in July 2012. It will be available in all ebook formats and paperback.
 Best wishes Mary!


  1. I like science fiction. This sounds like a good read.

  2. I love the inspiration here, from the desert and also working in an observatory, - the book should be a great read. Thanks for the heads up, my dear! Hope all is well. How's your writing coming along? I'm plodding (and plotting along) here, we've had rain and I missed the super moon altogether!! Have a lovely week! xoxo

  3. I'll keep watch for it on Kindle. Sounds exciting.

  4. I'll have to watch for it on Kindle. I think DH would love it as well.

  5. Huzzah! Mary has made a splash with this release :)

  6. I've loved all of her blog posts about space and astronomy. Though not a huge science fiction fan, I'm very intrigued about her book. I hope she sells a gazillion copies!

  7. Wishing her all the best. I think it's wonderful how the blogging/writing community pulls together to help our own. :-)

  8. I've got this book all ready to read, but not sure when I'll get around to it! so many books on my TBR :(

  9. Thanks for being part of the launch, Danette. We've done a good job. Over 1,000 downloads so far and it's not even free on Amazon yet. :)
