In November of last year, you may recall I was taking part in National Novel Writing Month and attempting to write a book. It is a very social event with online chats and in-person writing meet-ups. During one of these I met a girl who just became an intern with a new publishing company, so I decided to look into the pub house to see about possibly getting a job.
By December I was hired as a contracted freelance editor for the ebook publisher called Musa Publishing. Normally each manuscript has a few months in editorial before moving on to the next stage of the process, but I was asked to do a science-fiction novel right away. And now that manuscript has been published.
So here it is: The Radiance by John Robinson hit the (virtual) shelves yesterday. And I for one am not only smiling, but doing a happy dance!
How do you fight your own mind?
They call it the Radiance. No one knows where it comes from or what causes it -only that human intelligence is expanding at a startling rate.
When Travis Walker is first asked to join the Radiant Project, a task force of scientists and military leaders, he declines. Yet when Travis’s brother, Cale, tells him the woman he always loved is in danger, he has no choice but to face whatever lies ahead.
Estranged brothers must race against time to find the source of the Radiance. Even more, they must find out how to stop it before it falls into the hands of those bent on destruction.
