New Release: PRESERVATION (A DRMR Short Story)

OUT TODAY is Preservation: A DRMR Short Story, a stand-alone entry set in the DRMR series. Because this is a stand-alone, it means you do not have to have read either Convergence or Emergence to enjoy this story. Preservation features an all-new cast, in an all-new setting.

Here's what's it all about:


Kari Akagi is ex-British Special Forces, augmented by her government to be the prime soldier. In the wake of a devastating attack that cost her her legs, she has a new mission – protecting South Africa’s endangered species as a ranger for the Kruger National Park game reserve.

The number of animals within the reserve is rapidly dwindling as poachers mercilessly slaughter them for black market trade. Somebody is paying and equipping the poachers, and after her unit comes under assault, Akagi is determined to end this impossible war.

All she needs to do is capture one of the a poachers alive, hack into his brain, and find out who hired him. A lifetime of fighting, though, has taught Akagi that things are rarely ever that simple…

Preservation is a stand-alone short story set in the world of the DRMR series.

Preservation was originally published in Samuel Peralta's The Cyborg Chronicles (A Future Chronicles Anthology) back in Dec. 2015. Today marks it's first release as a stand-alone title, and it is available all major etailers (I'm still waiting for iBooks to catalog it, so if that's your preferred platform, please be patient. Preservation will be there soon!).

And coming in May...
