TACOMA, Wash. - July 30, 2015 - PRLog -- Tacoma speculative fiction author and literary activist Robert A. Boyd announced today that The Written Wyrd has released a science fiction demi-novel (short novel) intended for readers ten years and up.  This is the twelfth work from this author and imprint.

This work, entitled 'Diplomacy's Children', combines a humorous adventure story with a strong ethical message for young readers.  It follows the adventures of a young alien who enlists in their space fleet and learns the hard lessons of duty, responsibility and self-reliance.

'Diplomacy's Children' is available in PDF and ePub format from Smashwords, in Kindle from Kindle Direct Publishing, and in Trade Paperback from Amazon.  The print version retails for $10.95.  The downloadable formats retail for $2.99.  All formats may be accessed through The Written Wyrd's web site.

The works by The Written Wyrd are available on request for reviews.  Please contact the trust through the addresses below.


"Speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, and horror) is the popular literature of ideas," Mr. Boyd stated.  "It asks 'why?', 'what will this lead to?', and 'is there a better way?' in a variety of forms which appeal to the mass market reader.  In this time when there is so much pressure for mindless conformity, encouraging people to think is more critical than ever.  This is what distinguishes Speculative Fiction from all other forms of popular literature."


Launched in January 1, 2011, The Written Wyrd is a Washington State nonprofit trust founded to address the problems faced by self-published and small press authors of speculative fiction through a program of technical support and publicity.

These efforts are funded through sales of books, and by donations and grants.


'Bob' Boyd was born on August 10, 1949 in Charleston, South Carolina, and raised in the St Louis, Missouri area.  He began developing his writing craft in Naperville, Illinois in 2002, and moved to Tacoma in 2005.  At this time, he has twelve novels and anthologies completed, with several more in the works.  Bob is noted for his wicked sense of humor, and for his fascination with history and cultures.  He attends several science fiction conventions in the Pacific Northwest each year to promote self-published and small press authorship, and is available for public speaking engagements.
