The purpose of this blog is to share with you and get your thoughts as I go through the process of self publishing my new science fiction book “HEAVEN’S ANT FARM” an upside down science fiction remaking of a biblical story where trouble brews in a tech-utopian Heaven as a secular Yahweh battles a pious Lucifer over the fate of humans in parallel universe. It’s a heavenly exhibition of science vs. religion.
So, here I’ll share some scenes, backdrop, the underlying science behind the stories and passages that fell to cutting room floor as the book developed. I’ll also share my experiences going through the eBook publishing process including book cover development and social media marketing. Would be great to hear your experiences and what you did to avoid the land mines along the way to publishing your works.
I’m an electrical engineer, pilot and for umpteen years have led information technology change for large technology, financial and pharmaceutical companies. Now, I’m writing science fiction as part of a new stage of my life. It’s nice to have choices! Some call it retirement—I call it doing something I love that’s new and exciting. I can now visit Princeton University (now taking an Astro-Physics course!) to research and dig into the science that drives my stories. My goal is to produce fast paced real science stories around the everyday challenges we all face . . . not fantasies.
I’m also working on another book—MILK RUN a science fiction space battle story centered around the generation gap, obsession and rescuing a loved one from an alien induced drug addiction.
