Like Star Trek and Dr. Who? Try reading the newly published Been Blued science fiction novel. While I have a definite bias as the author, I’ve had nothing but good reviews from anyone who’s read it.
Here’s the premise: people who left Earth so long ago they consider themselves aliens have to return when a virus in space wipes out their women. They run into problems, not the least of which is that cloning only offers them so much time before extinction. They’ve infiltrated human organizations and have to hide the telltale red swirls that reveal the presence of a symbiont they picked up in space. It prevents them from starting a family until they’ve been blued, meaning a woman has fallen in love with them. When one of them is lucky enough to find such a human, she already has plans of her own…
I hope you enjoy it, I had a blast writing it. I also wanted to get published right away, so I went through iUniverse, a ‘supported self-publishing’ company. The novel is available from them–iUniverse.com–or you can Google the title to find out where to get the ebook.
Readers are asking if I can get the sequel out by Christmas, and I will try. It wouldn’t be possible with a traditional publisher, but since this is print on demand (POD) technology, the author is in charge. I’ve been writing stories since I could put words together, so I do write fast.
