Memoirs of a Synth

Tour guide, emissary, diplomat, thief – and a long-lived, genetically engineered Synth – Brianna Rei travels the Hundred Worlds, changing identities at will, hiding in plain sight. She knows her survival depends on staying one step ahead of the bounty hunters who have nearly exterminated her kind. It is only by her wits that she’s survived through the turmoil and adventures of the past five hundred years.

Camden Park Press is proud to introduce the space-opera series Memoirs of a Synth, with these two excellent tales.

All that changes when she teams up with fellow-thief, Jerrold McKell, and he discovers Brianna’s true identity. Now Brianna must choose between trust and survival, and what it means to be truly human.

Two Authors – Two Novelettes

What’s a “novelette”? you ask. In the fiction world, a “novelette” is a story that is between 7,500 and 20,000 words in length (that’s about 30 – 80 manuscript pages, but could be shorter or longer in printed form, depending on the variables of formatting text).

With that in mind, we at Camden Park Press are pleased to present two very different novelettes by two of our authors. First up, a crime story by author Lauryn Christopher, followed by a political/romantic/science fiction story by author Leigh Saunders. Read on for the details…

With Friends Like These, a novelette by Lauryn ChristopherWith Friends Like These

How well do we really know our friends? Their secret lives? Their hidden pain? Liz, Deb, Mikki, Anna, and Meg believe they know everything about each other — but one of them carries too many secrets — secrets that tear at her heart and eat at her friendships. Secrets she will kill to protect.

We Are Not Alone!

We thought we’d start 2011 off right by recognizing that the past couple of years have been hard for all of us — and, as author Leigh Saunders points out in her newest short story, Hard Times, even our alien friends haven’t gotten away completely unscathed!

So here’s to a new year, and all the wonderful opportunities for change it has to offer. Hopefully, like the characters in Hard Times, you’ll find a little fun and a little romance in the coming year!

Hard Times - a short story by Leigh SaundersHard Times

Let Danny dump her because he thinks she’s the kind of crazy he doesn’t want to marry? Or ask the aliens to abduct her boyfriend?

On a distant world…

Here at Camden Park Press we’re working hard to prepare science fiction author Leigh Saunders’ first novel, Synth for release. Set in a semi-distant future, where Earth is just one in a society of a Hundred Worlds, we think it’s a book you’ll be as excited to read as we are to get it to you.

In anticipation of Synth, Leigh has graciously provided us with a short story set in this same future, introducing the primary character, Brianna Rei.

In the Pale Light of Firstdawn, a short story by Leigh SaundersIn the Pale Light of Firstdawn

For the genetically engineered Synth, “living” means always staying one step ahead of the bounty hunters. And when Brianna Rei, in hiding on the planet Kita as the thief “Misha Kif,” returns home to discover an unexpected visitor, she knows it’s time to disappear again into the relative safety of the Hundred Worlds. But will the final demands of friendship cost her more than she is willing to pay?
