Sam needs your help with new Sci-Fi book set in MK

Local author set to release his third futuristic novel on October 30

A Milton Keynes author is to release his third Sci-Fi book at the end of October – and he wants you to help choose a great MK location as the setting for a chapter.

Sam Cooke writes nearfuture Sci-Fi novels, and each instalment of his AD 2045 series includes a chapter set in his beloved MK.

Book one featured Linford Wood, book two Willen Lake, while book three is awaiting a location of your choice. In the AD 2045 world, the Partner corporation runs everything from security to nuclear-reactors and vanishes those who stand against it.

Driverless cars, androids, aircraft and weaponry are all recognisable though significantly more advanced than today.

And Sam has appealed to Celebrate:MK readers to pick the perfect location for his next book, entitled ‘Partner – Julia’s Uprising’.

He said: “Have you ever sat back and thought, ‘this place could be in a book somewhere?’ Whether you have or not, now is your chance to do just that.

“The best three suggestions will get a thank you in the book and on the website,, where you can download a free PDF of book one, ‘Nuclear – Bursting Point’.

“If you are wondering what my AD 2045 series is like, one reader likened it to Thunderbirds times 100, which made me smile.”

For book three you can choose not just the MK location, but the year too if you wish, between 2034 and 2041.

Julia, the main character, is born in 2030 and so is Jake, her best friend – the person she escapes to from life at home.

Should Jake be with her at this time or someone else or no-one else?

The deadline to send Sam your suggestions for a Milton Keynes location for his book is midnight on Sunday 14th October, as the book is due out on October 30th.
