Visions of the Future
Cal Tech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has been instrumental in discovering many exoplanets — that is, planets outside our solar system. To catch the popular imagination, they also produce travel posters for these worlds. (Click a thumbnail for a larger version.)
Since readers visit a new world every time they read a book, I produce travel posters for my books, as well. Today, I’m proud to reveal the poster for my September 1 release, Alien Contact for Runaway Moms.
The poster features the front of a Northwest Coast Indian longhouse, featuring a beaver. NW Coast art is elaborate and highly stylized: you can tell it’s a beaver, obviously, because it has fingers on its paws and it has a flat tail with crosshatched markings. Two of the books main characters, Tal and Opsie, are members of the Kwadra Island’s Beaver Clan — Native Americans from a scientifically advanced future.
When her abusive lover tries to take custody of her baby, Audra flees where even he can’t follow: the aliens’ forbidden cities underneath Kwadra Island.
But can the safety she wants for her daughter survive a search party, violent alien criminals—and the love of an emotionally damaged Kwadran?
Alien Contact for Runaway Moms is available now for pre-order from these fine retailers.
Alien Contact for Runaway Moms is number five in the Alien Contact for Idiots series. Here are the travel posters for the other books. Click to see a larger version.
What’s a woman going to do when she’s quarantined with an out-of-this-world alien prince?
Fleeing murderous rebels, the queen’s sister finds a hero to save her . . . or is he kidnapping her, instead?
(no poster) Jo Beaverpaw is born fully grown, well-armed, and eager to fulfill her destiny — killing her alien nation’s most wanted fugitive.
She’s no heroine, he’s no prince charming. Not the best duo to defend Earth’s first starship, eh?
