Indie April#1: Thieves Guild

It’s Indie April, a celebration of all things Indie, be it novels, movies, music or art. The idea being to encourage interaction between indie creatives, and that most elusive of beasties the wider audience, and it is a time to celebrate all those wonderful indie creatives and their work.  As a writer, my focus (this will come as little surprise) is on bringing indie writers to your attention. So for the rest of the month, I will be periodically featuring some of the best the independent scene has to offer. Some of these will be names familiar to those who have read my blog before, some will be new, but all of them are undoubtedly wonderful and deserving of a wider audience. So take the plunge and invest in some indie goodness, give an indie writer a try, I guarantee you’ll not regret it.

The Thieves guild novels of C G Hatton

thieves guild

C G Hatton is a writer and editor based in the North of England, with a PhD in geology and a background in journalism.  She has written and published five books in the main Thieves’ Guild military sci-fi/thriller series, the first two books in a YA series set in the Thieves’ Guild universe, and edited the Harvey Duckman Presents anthologies. She is currently working on the sixth Thieves Guild novel, among many other things.

I have reviewed the Thieves guilds novels before on this blog, it’s safe to say I’m a fan. Actually, that’s entirely an understatement, they are wonderful, fast-paced, action orientated rollercoaster rides that never fail to disappoint.

The tag line ‘No one messes with the Thieves Guild’ is apt for the shadowy galaxy-spanning organisation at the heart of these novels, but god knows plenty of people try. C G’s characters come to life on the page and you cheer them on, cry for them, rage with them, fear for them and on occasion want to share a drink with them. If only to tell them it will all be fine and work out in the end. Though I suspect they won’t believe you if you do. that rollercoaster of action is never short of unexpected twists and turns, and the odd crash or three, oh and don’t mention the invasion of the galaxy burning alien horde…

I said don’t mention the Alien invasion…

You can find out more at and find her books on Amazon and just about everywhere else. Oh and the first of the novels is free on Kindle, so if you like your books in bites what have you got to lose…

Earlier reviews of C.G.Hattons novels …


Aside from her own novels, C G is also the edition at large for the Harvey Duckman Presents Anthologies. Which by sheer coincidence was release last weekend…  And in Volume 1 there is a new Thieves Guild short story just waiting for you to read, so if you fancy a taster of both C G’s work and 13 other Indie writers of SciFi, Fantasy, Steampunk and Horror, you could do worse than get yourself a copy, so click on the lovely picture below 🙂  More indie later in the week with Craig Hallam the writer of the fabulous Alan Shaw novels among other things…
