When Science Makes Fiction Obsolete

It used to be that you could write a novel and put it in a drawer for six to twelve months. In fact, that used to be recommended.

Let the Adventure Begin: Release Day Contest for AT STAR’S END

The most famous treasure hunter of all time is of course, Indiana Jones. He’s raced across our screens in pursuit of treasure (and to save the day!) with his fedora, bullwhip and fear of snakes. I read a super fun fact about Raiders of the Lost Ark the other day: that R2D2 and C3PO appear […]

Another New Author

  Hello Everyone! I’ve just joined Contact Infinite Futures as a new Carina Press author!

Now, with the growth of the internet, advertising dollars are quickly and thinly spread. It is up to the […]

The Naked Truth – About Language

The Naked Truth released this week at Carina Press! And, it released as an audible title at Audible.com! As book two in a sci-fi series, I had already developed some of the language that the Inarrii speak. As members of the Confederation, a conglomeration of races from around the nearer part of our universe, they […]
