(Seriously, authors: it costs you nothing to pen a quick press release and send it my way, and it costs me equally nothing to give it the proper SciFi ShoutOut in this space. Keep it in mind for future prospects, as I'm always willing to throw up a quick post.)
That said, might I draw your attention to the name Katherine Franklin?
Franklin's crafted an ambitious world for her debut novel, The Empyrean. (Kickstarter promotion page can be found right here.) In a universe where having emotions can be a crime, Franklin has developed warring factions, both intent on either controlling the other or seeing them destroyed. And how these governing principles affect the later generations is the stuff of magic that she plans to explore in this forthcoming book.
We here at SciFiHistory.Net are huge supporters of creative voices, and we encourage interested readers to check out Katherine Franklin has in process.
As always, thanks for reading … and live long and prosper!
