Zara – A Name Among The Stars – SciFi Adv/Rom – Episode 19
Lot of life happening atm which is getting in the way of progress on writing. Sigh!
The daughter is away this weekend at the Baltimore Comic Con (appearing with Finn Jones (Danny Rand in Iron Fist)).
On A Name Among The Stars – I’m going to try and promote it more without actually working on promoting – so I’ve put a teaser as a guest blog on Louise Wise’s site, and I will be serialising it on Wattpad, a site that is set up for serial novels.
Louise’s blog is at https://louisewise.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/a-disgraced-aristorcrat-distant-planets.html
Wattpad is at https://www.wattpad.com/
To put it on Wattpad, I first need a book cover, so I’ve engaged an artist to produce some original artwork. I hope you’ll like it. I will update Facebook when I have sketches, and when the final is ready, I’ll use it as the main image on this site.
So what’s happening in the story?
Zara’s getting cold feet. She’s so scared of opening up to Duke Tremayne, she’d prefer to face the extradition courts! But there’s another path that might be taken…an off-world job offer… gift horse or golden opportunity?
I often though I would end up writing Science Fiction back when I worked for a living (as opposed to what I do now). Thinking that, I spent time dreaming up cultures and technology of that future world. I dropped some sub-cultures in this episode, just in passing. (They’re not really significant to the story, except to what’s going on in Zara’s head)
‘Deadheads’ are explained in the text, but what do you think are the other sub-cultures mentioned are:
Augs and Modders
Virts and Chemmies
Jackers and Deadheads
Skins, Roids and Erobots
Answers in comments 🙂 Prizes!
I have had to remove the episodes I posted here to fall into line with Amazon’s policies on Kindle Unlimited books.
The full novel is available on Amazon:
When I post stories on my blog, they will remain for at least a month after completion.
