The Nebula has Ascended
Sometimes words fail to adequately express the level of excitement and elation we actually feel. So…the eagle has landed, baby’s got a new pair of shoes, the bird’s flown the coup, choose your cliche. They all mean the same thing, Ascent of the Nebula has been released.
This story finally realizes the vision I started out with in book 1, Into the Vast, to tell a cautionary tale about science gone wrong, about science unchained. In our own society where “efficiency” and “progress” are seen as ends in and of themselves, this series is meant to show what happens when such thinking is taken to its logical end.
Against the backdrop of this scientific pandora’s box is set the reality of the supernatural, something most scientists and most science fiction sadly fails to acknowledge. Book 3 pulls back another layer on that hidden, supernatural world in a way that most books of this genre can’t or won’t address.
But this series is more than just a series of theological or metaphysical ideas. At its heart it is about the characters that have to navigate their way through a very fallen creation. Adan and his friends wrestle with what it means to be human and dealing with the mysteries of God. As they do so, I hope you’ll be inspired and challenged in your own life to wrestle with such questions and not give up hope.
In celebration of the release of Ascent of the Nebula, my fellow author and literary cohort Jenelle Schmidt has been kind enough to host an article I wrote about world-building over on her website. I hope you’ll find it an interesting read.
I’ll also be sharing a few thoughts in the next week or so reflecting on the series as a whole. It’s been quite a ride getting to this point. I hope you’ll join me in this last step on the journey and read this latest novel. If you do, I hope you’ll write a review. That would be oh, so helpful. Either way, thank you so much for your interest in my books and your support of my work.
