The VoidWitch Saga
Part 1: Killing Gravity
Mars Xi can kill you with her mind, but she’ll need more than psychic powers to save her in Killing Gravity, the thrilling science fiction space adventure debut by Corey J. White.
Before she escaped in a bloody coup, MEPHISTO transformed Mariam Xi into a deadly voidwitch. Their training left her with terrifying capabilities, a fierce sense of independence, a deficit of trust, and an experimental pet named Seven. She’s spent her life on the run, but the boogeymen from her past are catching up with her. An encounter with a bounty hunter has left her hanging helpless in a dying spaceship, dependent on the mercy of strangers.
Penned in on all sides, Mariam chases rumors to find the one who sold her out. To discover the truth and defeat her pursuers, she’ll have to stare into the abyss and find the secrets of her past, her future, and her terrifying potential.

Killing Gravity is out now in ebook format, and is available in paperback format in North America – with release in the rest of the world coming at the end of June. As a debut author, sales and reviews can make all the difference for me and this little book that I’m immensely proud of. So if you’ve got the money and the inclination you can order it from one of the places below…
Brisbanites, hit up Pulp Fiction in the CBD. They’ve been big supporters of Killing Gravity, and I am hugely thankful. Sydney-siders, Galaxy Bookshop might be your best bet, as they’re the sci-fi and fantasy specialists in town.
Also, QBD did a great job supporting me and the other authors at Supanova in 2017. You should also be able to find some signed copies in various QBD stores. Otherwise, you can simply ask for your local bookstore to order it in for you. Just quote the title, and the ISBN (Killing Gravity, ISBN: 9780765396310) and the staff will no doubt be happy to help you out.
Part 2: Void Black Shadow
Mars Xi is a living weapon, a genetically-manipulated psychic supersoldier with a body count in the thousands, and all she wanted was to be left alone. People who get involved with her get hurt, whether by MEPHISTO, by her psychic backlash, or by her acid tongue. It’s not smart to get involved with Mars, but that doesn’t stop some people from trying.
The last time MEPHISTO came for Mars they took one of her friends with them. That was a mistake. A force hasn’t been invented that can stop a voidwitch on a rampage, and Mars won’t rest until she’s settled her debts.
