Okay, folks. You remember way back, when I made these cryptic references to a book I was writing? And then completing? And then trying to get published?
Well, it’s done. The book is titled Article 9, and it’s the first in a planned series called The Blockade Trilogy, and it’s now available for $3.99 on Kindle platforms in the Amazon store. A Print-on-Demand paperback version will be available in a few days, and I’ll make versions for Nook and Kobo available later this year.
In Book One we are introduced to the Sol System of the year 2020. The Geosynch Electric Corporation has become the world’s dominant mega-conglomerate, a global monopoly on precious electricity only months from its grasp. The world is grateful; only the United States, which still relies on aging natural gas and nuclear power plants, resists. But the U.S. government wants to gain access to Geosynch’s facilities for its Air Force, and some are willing to kill to have it.
Into this intrigue arrives reporter Jack Hastings. Accompanied by Air Force officer Minnie Korson, the unlikely duo realize that while the military is indeed pushing hard, the corporate officers of Geosynch are far from innocent. Their space colony, Prometheus-3, is filled with secrets, lies, and a pair of frightening truths: Geosynch is now in the process of weaponizing space with the goal of becoming a sovereign entity, capable of asserting control over planet Earth. And even stranger and more terrifying: a massive and potentially deadly alien intelligence lies dormant at the edge of the solar system, and it is about to awaken…
And there’s a few space laser battles, plus a nuclear explosion or two.
I’ll post more on this topic as things happen, but in the meantime: BUY MY BOOK . . .
