#BlogTour ~ After The Texans by Declan Milling #GuestPost


Having exposed the corrupt government in Papua New Guinea, the UN’s carbon market watchdog is riding high. But Emil Pfeffer, its head of market integrity, is in meltdown. The UN investigation has been shelved and his girlfriend, Johanna, has been kidnapped as insurance that his inquiries will go no further.
Wracked by guilt and desperate to find her, Emil finds himself thrust into the high-stakes battle being waged for control of the world’s remaining fossil fuel resources.
It’s economic war for hegemony over the future of global energy, being played out against a backdrop of Australian domestic politics, where coal mining and the Great Barrier Reef are locked in a fight to the death.
After The Texans is the second novel in the Carbon Black series.

Over to Declan for his thoughts…..

In-depth look at myself: a late starter, but better late than never. Originally from Oz, now settled in the UK after stints in at different times in various parts of Europe and also the tropics. Have travelled a reasonable amount, have hopefully acquired a broadened mind. Not exotic tourist travel, mainly just to places to live and/or work. Concerned environmentalist, but in an apolitical sort of way: concerned about how one species (ours) is taking over every bit of available space on the planet and not leaving much for all the others. This is the product of a career spent working in pollution control and environmental management: environmental management not being about managing the environment, but managing the human activities that are slowly but surely whittling it away. Having spent the last thirty years or more writing things – documents, contracts, policies, submissions, speeches, and presentations and so on, it’s interesting to be turning my hand now to fiction (and the concomitant need to learn the ways of the publishing industry): it’s like starting from scratch all over again. And I’m afraid I’m not one for social media – possibly a drawback as a writer these days – but nor are my characters; they value their privacy and are far too preoccupied working their ways through my pacy plots, to be texting, blogging and twittering…
