I'm so uber excited to announce that I've finally completed one of my current WIPs, titled "Earth 8-8-2: The Genesis Project" This story was intended on being a short story of no more than 3000 words. Well, it grew. The completed product is now a novelette and will have a sequel.
The following IS NOT the cover of the book. (Lol)
It amazes me how one never really knows where one's characters are going to take you. Nevertheless, it fills the author with excitement.
So, with a heart filled with the joy of accomplishment, I am happy to announce that "Earth 8-8-2" will be hitting book shelves very soon.
Following is a small excerpt of "Earth 8-8-2":
Earth 8-8-2 was the 882nd earth discovered by the scientists that ascertained alternated universes. One thousand had been found to date.
The Multiverse Theory had been proven and finally accepted by most earths. However, there were of course, some earths that refused to accept the findings. Nothing could be done about them. Those earths would stamp and seal their individual fates. Moreover, they would remain banal.
What scientists had proven was the theory that our universe was not the only one, but that there are many universes existing parallel to each other. Each distinct universes within the multiverse hypothesis were called parallel universes—this thesis was distantly derived from String Theory and The Theory of Everything, which were the fundamental beliefs that implied that all things are connected.
There had been a variety of different conjectures that lent themselves to a multiverse viewpoint, however one remained solid; that was that there were more earths, universes and living beings that spread out to an innumerable amount of macrocosms. More than could be counted.
Each group of people from their own respective earth was referred to as their earth's number and the term 'earthling'. In Dr. Scott's case, he was an '8-8-2 Earthling'.
Tyranny and malice swept through Earth 8-8-2 and people like Dr. Scott—or maybe not exactly like him—were looking for the means of freeing themselves from the brutality. Unbeknownst to their oppressors, several scientists had basked on a mission to visit several earths in order to collect DNA as many of the earths that had been visited had several different types of living beings.
All with their weaknesses, but a vast amount with breathtaking strengths. Capabilities far beyond that which 8-8-2 earthlings, and any like them, could ever imagine.
Well, that's all for now. I will keep you all posted on the progress of the publication.
