Awarded the Awesome Indies Seal of Approval!

The only crop left … is human.

After genetically altered weeds devastate Earth’s croplands, Dr. Tula Macoby believes photosynthetic skin can save the human race. Her people single-mindedly embark on a mission to convert the cannibals roaming what’s left of Earth. But when Levi, a peaceful stranger, refuses alteration, Tula doesn’t think the only options should be conversion or death.

Levi Kraybill, a devout member of the Old Order, left his Holdout farmland to seek a cure for his terminally ill son. Genetic manipulation is a sin, but Levi will do almost anything for the life of his child. When he’s captured, he’s sure he’s damned, and his only escape will be death.

Tula’s superiors schedule Levi’s euthanization, and she risks everything to set the innocent man free. Now she and Levi are outlaws with her people, and she’s an abomination with his. Can they find sanctuary in a cannibal wasteland?

Will Jaden finally follow her heart? In the end her decision is anything but simple.

White Dwarf One by Dario Solera

Cover10SmallThey came to Earth to teach us their science. Then they invited us to their home planet. We accepted.
Alex and his crew depart for a pioneering mission through the galaxy. But the journey is long and dangerous, and humans are not made for space.
White Dwarf One will take you on board a bare-bones spaceship, where the vessel’s claustrophobic reality will be disturbed by something no one had foreseen: friends turning to foes. To survive, the crew will have to make decisions that will affect the outcome of the mission as much as the future of humanity.

Targeted Age Group:: 15-70

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always been fascinated by first contact themes, and what meeting an intelligent alien species would mean for mankind. White Dwarf One builds upon these concepts, going as far as speculating about different civilizations getting to know each other – for better or for worse.

Beyond Hercules by Paul A. Bussard

BEYOND HERCULES is the story of a charismatic techno-geek who discovers anti-gravity not knowing the galaxy is patrolled by a derelict weapon that annihilates anyone using anti-gravity technology.

Imagine Duke Wainwright’s surprise when a simple fiber optics experiment blows a mile-deep hole in his garage floor. He’s discovered anti-gravity, but doesn’t know it. However, a derelict weapon, programmed to annihilate anyone with anti-gravity technology, does know it. It begins a countdown before Duke even knows what he’s discovered. Duke, his teenage sweetheart, an out-of-work astronomer, and a dead cosmonaut scramble to mount a defense as the robotic weapon begins its attack.

Targeted Age Group:: YA and older

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve long been fascinated by science fiction stories involving anti-gravity–floating cities, near space as crowded with traffic as our air space is today. Most stories show anti-gravity in every day use. I wondered what it would be like to be the person who discovered anti-gravity. Ideas began to accumulate, and Beyond Hercules was the result.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
I write HARD science fiction, which demands that I don’t violate any laws of science (known today), except for the “what if?” premise of my story. Readers of hard SF will catch me if I make a blunder, so it’s a challenge to make sure I get things right.

Featured Book: The Mind’s Eye by K.C. Finn

A girl with a telepathic gift finds a boy clinging to his last hope during the war-torn climate of Europe, 1940.

At fifteen, Kit Cavendish is one of the oldest evacuees to escape London at the start of the Second World War due to a long term illness that sees her stuck in a wheelchair most of the time. But Kit has an extraordinary psychic power: she can put herself into the minds of others, see through their eyes, feel their emotions, even talk to them – though she dares not speak out for fear of her secret ability being exposed.

As Kit settles into her new life in the North Wales village of Bryn Eira Bach, solitude and curiosity encourage her to gain better control of her gift. Until one day her search for information on the developing war leads her to the mind of Henri, a seventeen-year-old Norwegian boy witnessing the German occupation of his beloved city, Oslo. As Henri discovers more about the English girl occupying his mind, the psychic and emotional bonds between them strengthen and Kit guides him through an oppressive and dangerous time.

There are secrets to be uncovered, both at home and abroad, and it’s up to Kit and Henri to come together and fight their own battles in the depths of the world’s greatest war.

WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING

“RECOMMENDED. A title like this is screaming for adaptation as a successful film…” ~The US Review of Books~

“THRILLING!…grips onto the reader and never lets go!” ~Feathered Quill Book Reviews~

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING

“As a fantasy fiction writer I have to admit that I am a harsher critic when it comes to novels in this genre. Books in this class I feel should be able to captivate the imagination and place you in a different realm. AEGIS RISING accomplishes that and a whole lot more. It is truly a classic in the making!” ~ Michael Beas – Bestselling Author of ‘Strump’ ~

“If you are looking for a fresh, engaging and unique YA read, this is IT! No vampires, no zombies, no dragons, no teenage love distractions; Only pure, action, adventure, intrigue, mystery, dash of sci-fi, AWESOME characters and an AMAZING plot! This is story-telling at its best. The pacing is great. It starts with a bang then slows down to build the plot and give depth to the characters, then picks up at a furious pace before slowing down slightly to develop two parallel threads and then rockets at break-neck speed to a double whammy climax, ending in a cliff-hanger! What can I say except, ’Give me book two NOW!” Jason A. Joseph

“I could easily see something like this being turned into a movie someday. Gems like this one will surprise and please you!” ~ K.S.Puckett

“This is an exceptional book that will easily fall within the same realm as other mega successful stories of teenage adventure. Would not be surprised to see this adapted into a blockbuster movie.” ~WL Johnson~

“Hold on to your seat and get ready for the ride of your life. The action scenes are incredible and epic, something I can definitely see on the big screen.” ~Amazon Reader~

Targeted Age Group:: 13 and above

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve been a keen reader from a young age, however I definitely did not think I’d actually write a novel. I guess the first tell-tale sign was when I was seven or eight and I would try to write extension to the final chapters of books that I’d read because I did not want them to end

I guess the inspiration to write Aegis Rising began with the question, what kind of adventure would I like to be on if I found myself lost in a mysterious place with my four of my best friends. The when I was about twelve or thirteen, I came up with an idea for a story where five friends get washed up on the shore of an island after a freak storm separates them from their families while on a boating trip. The story did not get very far as it lacked the necessary ingredients to pass for something that would be read by people outside of your immediate family or two closest buddies! ! But it did establish a sort of groundwork for what evolved to become Aegis Rising three years later.

Targeted Age Group:: New Adult

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always been fascinated by telepathy and wanted to create a character whose mind knew no bounds. But the treatment of telepaths in the television show Babylon 5 made me rethink my romantic notions of being a know-it-all. I decided to combine the two.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
A science fiction writer is in a unique position of being a teacher as well as an entertainer. We can take current issues, transport them light years away, and shine a light on them in ways that contemporary writers cannot. It’s within the power of every science fiction writer to open eyes and create hope.
