Book Three, The Orb of Terra is finally here.
After multiple surgeries, many trials of life, and one successful fundraiser, book 3 has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited to share this. I’m so grateful for those who have been a source of encouragement and for the new friends I’ve made along this wonderful journey. I’m also VERY grateful to those of you who kept me on my toes by repeatedly asking, “when is the next one coming out?” You don’t know what that means to me. I know to some that may sound a little egocentric but if you know our family or know what it takes to produce a finished book, you know what I mean.
There’s a reason why this is one of the loneliest professions on the planet.
So to you I say, thank you!
I especially want to thank artists and friends, Eve Milady and Ben Fosselman who created the gorgeous cover and are now hard at work creating covers for books 1 & 2 that will re-release in January. And my friend, Mike Halsey of Magnetic Dreams Animation Studios, who to this day believes and is working hard to make an animated series possible. On that note, there are things going on behind the scenes. Music that is to die for has been created for submission to the networks. Until I’ve been given the green light to share that with you, I’ll have to keep that under wraps for now. I can say, however, that the soundtrack is epic!
One last thing I want to mention…reviews. These can be simple. “I liked it” would be enough to raise rankings (especially on Amazon). Higher ranking means more exposure.
So pretty please, don’t forget to review.
Enough yapping. Here you go!
In the tradition of “City of Ember” “Star Wars” and “A Wrinkle in Time”, this family adventure is a high stakes space race to save our world from an invading force before it is too late. FIND YOUR DESTINY. -Book 3- Will Ian’s quest to find his destiny away from Jupiter lead to Earth’s untimely demise?
As he struggles with his identity, Ian Castillo helps one of Earth’s greatest scientific minds, Dr. Nikola Tesla, make the scientific discovery of a lifetime: a strange mineral that can perhaps power our world for years to come! They discover it is not just an energy source, but something much more! When the device powered by the mineral is activated, it awakens a sleeping giant buried under the Earth by the Martians generations before.
The beast known as “Gigantes” leaves behind a trail of destruction and calls out to a deadly enemy headed for Earth. And the secret inside the mineral will change everything for Earth and the entire Jovian Realm…forever.
