Space Dock acquisitions editor is said to be delighted at his second acquisition as editor of Space Dock. Alex Laybourne has signed a 3-book deal which starts with Lost and Found and will be published early 2017
Alex’s novel follows Glenn Hawke’s tragic past which forged him into a fearsome bounty hunter, but when a job takes him to the edge of the free systems, Glenn is forced to into a confrontation with the man who changed his life, so long ago.
He’s about to learn that sometimes when you start chasing ghosts, they don’t hide – they lie waiting…
Alex is the author of thirteen novels. He was born and raised in the coastal English town Lowestoft, it should come as no surprise (to those that have the misfortune of knowing this place) that he became a horror writer.
From an early age Alex was sent to schools which were at least 30 minutes’ drive away and so spent most of his free time alone, as the friends he did have lived too far away for him to be able to hang out with them in the weekends or holidays.
He’s been a writer as long as he can remember and has always had a vivid imagination. To this very day he finds it all too easy to just drift away into his own mind and explore the world he creates; where the conditions always seem to be just perfect for the cultivation of ideas, plots, scenes, characters and lines of dialogue.
Alex is married and has five wonderful children; James, Logan, Ashleigh, Damon and Riley. Alex’s biggest dream for them is that they grow up, and spend their lives doing what makes them happy, whatever that is.
For people who buy Alex’s work, he hopes that they enjoy what they read and that he can create something that takes them away from reality for a short time. For Alex, the greatest compliment he can receive is not based on rankings but by knowing that people enjoy what he produces, that they buy his work with pleasure and never once feel as though their money would have been better spent elsewhere.
