I'm with Nosy Crow!

I'm SO EXCITED to be able to finally reveal this! Nosy Crow have picked up two middle-grade novels of mine, to be published early 2020 and early 2021!

The first book, Orion Lost follows Orion, a colony ship which is four months out of Earth when catastrophe strikes – leaving the ship and everyone on board stranded in deep space. Suddenly it’s up to thirteen-year-old Beth and her friends to navigate through treacherous and uncharted territory to reach safety. But with a heavily-damaged ship, space pirates, a mysterious alien species, and an artificial intelligence that Beth doesn’t know if she can trust, getting home has never been so difficult…

The lovely Tom Bonnick at Nosy Crow says:

“From the first page, I could not put this book down. Thrilling, atmospheric, and with some of the best twists I’ve ever come across, Orion Lost is a fantastic blend of classic science fiction and contemporary storytelling. I’m delighted to be working with Alastair – a hugely exciting new voice in middle-grade fiction.”

(Oooh, stop, I'm blushing! No, go on, read it again.)
