Cover Reveal: Orphan Planet, by Rex Burke

1 Mar 2023

Welcome everybody!

Today I have the pleasure of joining more bloggers to help reveal the cover for a new sci-fi series that is coming, written by Rex Burke.

Let's take a look at the blurb first!

With Earth in crisis, humans are travelling deep into space. But humanity’s future just took a wrong turn.

A seventeen-year colony-ship voyage – a straight shot to a new planet. Handpicked, single-minded crew, and a thousand settlers in hypersleep. No children, no families, no fuss.

That was the plan, anyway

Captain Juno Washington commands a ship of loners and oddballs. The teenagers of the Odyssey Earth didn’t ask to be born, and face an uncertain future. And Jordan Booth really didn’t want to be woken up early.

After an unexpected change of course, relationships are tested like never before. If they listen to advice, pull together and stop squabbling, they might just make it.

If this has picked your curiosity, I can give you more info about the upcoming book: 
Pages: 332
Genre: Sci-fi (Space Adventure)
Publishing date: 18 April, 2023
You can preorder it from:

Time to unveil that sweet cover (really in line with the series)

Rex Burke is a SciFi writer based in North Yorkshire, UK.

When he was young, he read every one of those yellow-jacketed Victor Gollancz hardbacks in his local library. He’s sure there are still thrilling SciFi adventures to be told – even if he has to write them himself.

When he’s not writing, he travels – one way or another, he’ll get to the stars, even if it’s just as stardust when his own story is done.
