and live on Freeview channel 276
Jeff Hannan wrote the science fiction novel The 2080s several years ago and recently updated it after the Coronavirus pandemic hit the UK.
He is offering the eBook version of the novel as a free download but is also asking those who do download it to make a voluntary donation the Age UK Coronavirus Emergency Appeal.
Jeff said: "Writing it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
"Was it was a mental marathon? No.
"It was a mental Mount Everest.
"This year, I’d decided to do a small update to it when Coronavirus hit the UK.
"Since I never made any money from my book, I thought it could be put to good use.
"Now, sitting in a study, tapping away on a keyboard and swigging a beer, is certainly hard work.
"But it does not compare to the heroic actions of those on the frontline of the battle against Coronavirus or to the selfless actions of those using their time to support their communities.
"Older people in isolation need a lot of support right now, so I’ve picked Age UK’s Coronavirus Appeal as the one to support.
"But people can feel free to donate elsewhere to any charity of their choice."
Jeff said he wrote The 2080s for teenage gamers to read when taking a break from their consoles.
He said: "It's a tale of true-to-life virtual reality, violent eSports, a colossal Mars-themed spaceship, inter-planetary organised crime, Martian eco-terrorists and, of course, a mysterious girl.
"The headstrong 14-year-old Zak Carter takes it all on."
Jeff has warned would-be readers that the book contains violence.
