Last night I got to type every writers two favorite words on my latest book, The Miranda Project. Those two words are of course, "The End." This is the fifth book I've finished now, and that feeling never gets old. The only thing better as an author is holding the final product in your hands.
For those of you who are used to a certain type of book from me, The Miranda Project is a bit of a deviation. Rather than fantasy, this story is sci-fi. And while the two genres are usually crammed together into the same section of the book store, they do have some significant differences as well. Luckily, they often have a very similar audience. So I'm hoping those of you who have enjoyed my other books are willing to give this one the old college try. As usual, I've tried to keep the story as accessible to new audiences as I can, while still keeping it rooted in the genre it calls home.
Much like The Forbidden Scrolls, The Miranda Project is the first entry in a larger narrative. My expectation is this will also be a trilogy of books. It takes place in the future and follows the tale of a man named Alex who is on the run from the shadowy government agency he used to work for. Each member of this agency has psionic powers like telepathy, telekinesis, etc. Alex's power is teleportation, and it's extremely rare.
Alex's journey in The Miranda Project begins on Mars, hiding out among the workers trying to terraform the Red Planet. Throughout the story, readers will learn what turned him against the organization he used to work for and why he's on the run. They'll get a look inside of his broken mind and learn why he has flashback-like dreams that keep him up at night.
All told, I'm extremely exited to bring the first chapter of this trilogy to you all as soon as I can. While the first draft is done, there are still countless revisions, edits, beta reads, and more edits to do before I'll be comfortable enough to release it out into the world. I'm also looking forward to working with my cover artist and seeing what kind of vision we can put together for you all to see.
In the meantime, I hope you're all doing well and riding out the storm of this pandemic as safely as possible.
In the meantime, give the book's blurb a read:
