Five days early, this draft of the book is finished. From somebody better known for being a procrastinatin' fool... the cover might look like this (but probably not):In case you didn't know, the title of the novel comes from one of my favorite bands, Yes. The title is a line from their song, "Siberian Khartru", on the Close to the Edge album. Apparently, they also recorded a B-side using the line as a title (aren't they cool-looking dudes?):
Here's a potential backcover blurb for the book, if you're curious at all what it's about:
Luna is a motherlode of Helium-3, the galaxy's most precious fuel source. Terra and the InnerPlanet settlements, greedy to control this resource, are going to war -again.
Enter Sally Parker and a mysterious guest from Jupiter, leading a survey team to the moon. That's when the trouble starts, for Luna has a secret that could very well destroy them all.
From Seattle to Axum, this globe- and galaxy-spanning science fiction thriller delivers shocks and soul-wrenching suspense from one of the industry's most promising new writers.
