In the same day I've been hosted by Regina Garson on her blog, where I had the opportunity to talk about my science fiction series, “Red Desert”, and in particular about the first book “Red Desert - Point of No Return”, which is due to release on June 30th (in just 13 days).
She interviewed me and published a guest post with my answers. We've talked about space and Mars exploration and on how my interest in this matter influenced the writing of the series.
Pay a visit to Regina's blog to read the article.
And remember that “Red Desert - Point of No Return” is already available to pre-order on Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iTunes at only $0.99 (DRM free epub version). It will also be available on Amazon and Google Play on the date of the release.
Don't you know what is it about?
Here is the book description.
Thirty years after the Mars exploration mission ‘Hera’, whose crew died in mysterious circumstances, the ensuing political issues that slowed NASA's race to conquer space have finally ended. This time the five members of the new ‘Isis’ mission will not travel the 400 million kilometres for a short visit. This time they are destined to become the first colonisers of the Red Planet.
The science fiction series “Red Desert”, set in the near future, includes four books.
The first one, “Point of No Return”, is a novella.
In what looks like a suicide attempt, Swedish exobiologist Anna Persson, crew member of the Isis, secretly leaves Station Alpha at the crack of dawn to travel deep into the Martian desert in a pressurised rover.
As she journeys to the limit of her two day oxygen supply, she shows us memories of events from her past leading up to the mission. Little by little, as time and oxygen run out, she reveals the real Anna.
Whatever her goal, wherever it is, will Anna reach her destination?
