02.20.2020 - It's only February but it feels like the year is flying by. I'm still plugging along slowly on my unnamed fantasy fauxmance. I'm about 24,000 words and five chapters in though I'm starting to hit my usual pantsing/plotting switch-over wall.
My inaugural Author Astronaut of the month feature went out in the last newsletter, hopefully folks enjoyed seeing KD Williamsons' face in my little rocket ship.
I still haven't gotten my book covers for the other two novels that are releasing this year. I am impatiently waiting!
Remember Me, Synthetica is in the editing phase right now. Here is a quote from my editor: "This novel is very tight and well written. The pace is great. The kitten was a great touch! All in all a very solid sci-fi novel that in my opinion is award worthy." That bit of insight was awesome news. After doing my own edit pass, I may even like this novel more than Waking the Dreamer!
The Lost Temple of Psiere won't be in the editing phase until we complete Synthetica. However, I will include a quote from my beta reader, who has been with me since nearly the beginning. "Which is why I loved Psi2 as much as I did. I'm telling you chica. At least from my perspective, it's probably the best book you've written to date. And you KNOW I'm not one to bullshit you." <= Yeah, that's a cuss word on my website but now you know. Aparently the sequel to The Sovereign of Psiere is my best novel ever. No pressure for the 3rd and final book though, right? *sigh*

The world was forever changed when a government genetic experiment created the Chromodecs from a dead alien in 1952. Decades later, when it became apparent that society needed a way to deal with a hybrid humans with unheard of powers, the CORP was created. The Chromodec Office of Restraint and Protection was a special government police agency formed to keep track of the Chromodecs.
This particular tale involves two refugees, young babies who were sent down to Earth to escape being used as pawns in an interplanetary war, despite the fact that Earth itself wasn't so safe. Destined to be Q’sirrahna, or soul mates as the humans called it, Amari Losira del Rey and Zendara Inyri Baen-Tor would grow to be more powerful than any other beings on the planet, if they could find each other first.
After being forced to hide from the CORP when it's realized their powers could level entire cities, Amari and Zen will have to answer one question. Who will save the world when it all falls apart?
