Book one in the award-winning Projects series. Contains strong language.
Kalin Taylor is on the path to success. He's just won a scholarship to the prestigious Sanderson College of Arts and Science to study medicine. He's also about to do something very, very stupid in the name of becoming one of the 'in' kids at college.
It sounded simple at the time. Sneak into a branch of the top-secret, interstellar scientific company GenTech, take a photo of the genetically engineered creature Project Tau that's supposedly inside, and sneak back out again. Cue membership of the college frat house, cue popularity and an improved lifestyle, right?
Unfortunately for Kalin, simple doesn't mean easy. Now he's facing a life of slavery, assuming GenTech's 'training' doesn't kill him first, and if he doesn't find a way to escape soon, it'll be too late.
Meet the Author: Jude Austin
Jude Austin currently lives with her husband in Chiba, where she is owned by two cats. Unlike most sci-fi writers, she has no interest in dystopian settings or robots, preferring instead to concentrate on people, culture and world-building. She's one of those rare breeds: a sci-fi writer who is actually optimistic about the far future!
Project Tau is the first book in her multi-award-winning Projects series. The sequel, Homecoming, went on to place in four out of the six awards it was entered into, including the prestigious Writer's Digest Awards, and garnered praise for its handling of sensitive topics such as mental health and eating disorders.
When she's not writing, she can be found binge-watching Netflix, gaming, playing badminton in the street outside her house, or just sleeping.
Jess has been a constant presence in the audiobook community since 2016, running The Audiobookworm and Audiobookworm Promotions. The only thing that surpasses her love of audiobook listening is the passion and zeal with which she promotes them.
