Thank you for your interest. As an independent author, support from new readers is vital to building a career. Although Tesla is a little younger than I normally write, it captures the innocence of youth and the wide-eyed, optimistic view of the world where anything is possible.
And really, in this series, everything is possible. Self-publishing Review said:
if you ever wanted to see zombies, sky-pirates, cyborgs, mutants, steampunks, technomancers, and more, all fighting on the same stage of a post-apocalyptic science-fantasy setting, here’s the series for you – enjoy! The books are chock full of Lingane’s trademark humor, bizarre-yet-fantastic genre-mashing, as well as his uncanny ability to put together a cohesive world and immerse a reader in even the most insane-sounding concepts. It’s hard to believe that such an idea can be done well, and yet Lingane manages it, with aplomb. It’s funny, it’s dark, it’s amazing – a truly fantastic series.
The Tesla Evolution is a coming-of-age story that follows Sebastian from boy to man, from persecuted to warrior to savior, as he is chased across a post-apocalyptic Australian outback. It is a frenetic read pitting two sides of technology against each other: steampunk vs cyberpunk.
With over 100 five-star reviews across Amazon sites, the MG/YA series has been critically acclaimed and won multiple literary and reader awards. And now, book one in the series is free to those who sign up to the Mark-myWords readers group.

What if a whole race wanted you dead, where would you go? And what if you didn’t know why? What if everything you thought you knew about yourself was wrong?
One thousand years have passed since nuclear war wiped out civilization in the northern hemisphere. The planet slowly heats and water becomes a rare resource. Out of the ruins of a devastated civilization rises a new breed of people - those with the power to control magnetism. Teslas.
Sebastian, a young orphan boy from a quiet rural town, is being hunted by strange part-machine, part-human people. His only hope is Melanie, an angry, dying teenage girl who is dragged into the adventure and sets out to deliver him to the Steam Academy, even if it's just to stop him talking. Seb must confront an unknown past and fight against everything he believed in. And occasionally wash his hair.
No one said it would be easy.
