Child of Mine Book Cover

Book Signing with Jessica Meats

Jessica Meats, author of ‘Child of the Hive’ and ‘Omega Rising’, will be joining us on Saturday 10th August from 10am to 2pm to offer book signings.  She will be presenting readings from her novels from 2-3pm with an opportunity to ask questions.

Her first novel ‘Child of the Hive’ , is set in a Britain of the near future, and is both a tense sci-fi thriller and a gripping philosophical exploration of what it means to be human in a world of ever-increasing technological sophistication. An unputdownable read.

In her latest novel ‘Omega Rising’, Jenny Harding has no money, no qualifications and no career history. A job working security for a big tech firm seems too good to be true. Maybe it is. She is tasked with hunting down a group of thieves who have been stealing sensitive technology. Caught up in a battle involving alien forces, Jenny has some important questions to answer: Who are the thieves? What’s their real purpose? And is she on the right side?

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet with a renowed and respected author.
