“The Island on the Edge of Forever” Mythic SF novel cover reveal!

The Island on the Edge of Forever ebook coverFor the past two years, I’ve been working on the most ambitious book I’ve ever embarked upon.

In the process, I’ve hopped to Hawaii and back, twice, somehow skirting infinity in the process, and today I’m ready to share the first glimpse of the result.

It’s not enough to put your heart and soul into something. You have to communicate it with clarity. Your readers must connect with it. It must affirm grace and beauty under pressure, and if my early readers are any indication, this work does indeed. (Once again, a huge thanks goes out to my beta-readers. This book wouldn’t have been a knockout without you.)

So today, I am rather ecstatic to announce that THE ISLAND ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER is now up for pre-order on Amazon. I am also revealing the cover and the synopsis for the first time here. I’ll try to keep this brief, but suffice to say that the cover is a composite of stellar imagery and perhaps the greatest beach on Maui. (And it’s worth mentioning that, even though it is technically the 2nd book in the Epic of Aravinda series, it has been written so that one can start with this book and still enjoy it immensely.)

Please share or like this post if you want to support me. (Buttons above.) It really does make a difference and means a lot. Once again, thank you for supporting an independent author.

And now, without further ado, a short version of the book synopsis:

Beyond the Known Cosmos, on the other side of time…

When Asha and Zahn return to the sapphire forests of Avani after a pivotal victory over the Vakragha, they celebrate their miraculous survival, taking a well-deserved break from the galactic conflict… only to find conflict within themselves.

Bent on consuming every star in the galaxy, the Vakragha will return, and Asha and Zahn consider their options carefully. Yet to everyone’s surprise, a Confederation pilot lands with a new mission: to recover The Kiss of Life. Capable of reviving the dead, the ancient artifact is singular in its power.
