Aviophobia is out today, 17 July 2015. It's a standalone story within the Flight HA1710 series. Each story looks at the effect a dramatic event like a plane crash can have on the people involved.

Aviophobia is about Richard Abbott, who has been afraid of flying ever since he can remember. He works as a member of a major bank’s IT department in London and his job does not require him to fly — until he gets promoted. If he wants to keep his job, he has no choice but to deal with his worst nightmare

Excellent book!

A really excellent book. I can't wait for the final installment. There wasn't a lot of sex but the continuation of the story was great.

4.5 Heart Review by Tammy

Richard Abbott works for a major bank in England in the IT department. Luckily his job doesn’t require him to fly anywhere because he is absolutely terrified of flying, not scared of flying but gut wrenching terror! That is until the day he gets promoted to Team Leader, of a project he has spent the last three years working on. Now, they expect him to fly to Chicago for a kick-off meeting! He’s stuck between a rock and a hard place on the one hand, the promotion and ever

“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~ Viktor E. Frankl

Richard Abbott, of 'Aviophobia' by Serena Yates, has worked for years to gain superior IT skills. He hates flying and has always done everything he can to avoid it. Unfortunately, his boss gives him a promotion which will require frequent air travel. Will Richard turn down the job and risk losing all his hard earned experience, or does he do what he can to overcome his fear of flying? Te

Back close to the actual crash in this book, which I liked. Richard's fear of flying is put to the test by a promotion and a self serving boss and totally vindicated by the crash.
I liked the fact that they were both passengers and their stories paralleled each other. Their confusion, fears, togetherness, nightmares and eventual first flight after were all well done.
I'd have liked to see Richard's boss get his come uppance but that would have been icing on the cake!

I can't imagine anything worse than a plane crash for someone who is deathly afraid of flying. Watching Richard navigate his fear and then meeting Camden on Flight HA1710 is fun but it's also terrifying because we know that the flight is headed for disaster. I love how the author has balanced fear, tragedy, and love. Aviophobia is a great read and a great installment in the Flight HA1710 series.

3.75 stars for me. A very enjoyable story with likable main characters. not much angst. it had the odd phrase that didn't make sense but overall a very sweet and cute read, and a solid addition to the series.

I’m a night owl and start writing when everyone else in my time zone is asleep. I’ve loved reading all my life and spent most of my childhood with my nose buried in a book. Although I always wanted to be a writer, financial independence came first. Twenty-some years and a successful business career later I took some online writing classes and never looked back.
