Ted Johnson and his family have formed a team to decide which couples have earned the right to be called mommy and daddy. Their expectations are steep. Their motives are questioned. Their lives are threatened. The Johnsons never considered procreation a right, rather, a privilege. The world fights back.

Boredom

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
It isn’t. You’re just testing the limits of believability. Are tentacle aliens believable? Depends on how you write it. How about a billionaire marrying a coke-head prostitute he’s only known for a week? Depends on how you write it. You’ll notice the last one is the plot for the movie “Pretty Woman”, a sci-fi cult classic. It certainly tested my limits on believability.

My love of military science fiction and having a story I just had to tell. This is the second book in the trilogy Gray Panthers.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?

Squirrels & Puppies: Dark Morality Tales by Russell A Mebane

squirrelscoverA collection of short stories involving some puppies, a couple
squirrels, a kitty, a cyborg, some aliens, and some Black people. All of
them revolve around some moral theme and all of them involve something
or someone getting raped, killed, or tortured; but in a creative and
meaningful way. There are other people in the stories, too. Together
they’ll be exploring moral relativism. What is moral relativism? It’s a
bunch of good fun! That’s what it is!

Targeted Age Group:: 13+

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Poverty and boredom.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
It isn’t. Your mind just goes to a different place. Two people walk into a room. In a romance novel, they fall in love. In erotica, they have sex. In an action novel, they fight. In sci-fi, one of them’s an alien. But it’s all still two people walking into a room.

A Few Things You’ll be Needing to Know by Gary Loffler

A-Few-Things-Youll-be-Needing-to-Know_coverFor ten-year-old Walker Viatori space travel was just another childhood notion until his Uncle Nathan returned from a Grand Tour of the Palindrome Trading Ring. The tales of this 240-year-long voyage stirred young Walker’s imagination and set him on his own path to the stars—a path requiring the exploration of his terraformed world and learning the skills needed to survive a trip to the stars.

Targeted Age Group:: YA to Adult

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
In the course of helping a friend write a book, I created a universe. Eventually it occurred to me that I could also write a book in that universe and so I did. There will eventually be at least three books with a collection of short stories to provide some background for the novels. Ideas briefly mentioned in the long form stories will be explored more deeply in the short stories.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
You write SciFi exactly the same as you write any other genre, you simply add scientific speculation. What happens to romance when you live to be five hundred years? How do you solve a locked room mystery when you have teleportation available? Writing about the future does mean that you have to imagine what will happen rather than interpret past events. Unlike fantasy writing where you can create your own set of rules, Science Fiction should be based on established theories.

Reason for Existence by Richard Botelho

ReasonforExistence“David Jordan. Successful, intelligent, connected, and with a mission. Now at the center of a global crisis. Can he bring peace to the world and maintain his secret? Or will he fail and cost humans everything?”

Targeted Age Group:: 18-70

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The category of science fiction needed a genre bender featuring thriller, romance, philosophy, and adventure combined into one novel. Reason for Existence is a return to classic science fiction novels which were not so formulaic and predictable. Reason for Existence is very original, unlike any other current science fiction novel.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
Science Fiction allows the author to dream more than any other genre.

Kindle Countdown Deal $.99 4/8 – 4/15/2016

What’s in the box?

Dave never conformed where it was beneficial in life and paid the price. He realizes he should have listened to his parents, cared about his grades in high school, and conformed to become successful like his brother. Dave starts conforming and a mysterious, enticing, and exotic woman gives him a dream job.

Does it matter Dave doesn’t know what effect his job has on the world when he’s skyrocketing into the big time at $4,000 a day? A new lifestyle, interesting women, fancy clothes, and a supercar worth more than an average house all indicate to Dave he’s on the right path, yet something doesn’t seem right, even to ordinary Dave.

When Dave discovers the unthinkable ramifications his new job has on others and the world, does he continue or not? Will he save the world by doing his job well, or save the world by destroying his employer? Is conformance the way to personal success, or a path to world destruction? Can anyone make a choice when their own lives are affected? Would you conform to live 300 years long in perfect health with immense wealth, even if you were no longer you?

Can Dave even discern reality and make a suitable decision? Does he have a choice? Do you?

Look inside now and start reading this compact (approximately 43,000 words and 158 pages) science fiction mystery novel and decide for yourself.
