My latest sci-fi novel The Seventh Age is finally ready for publishing next month. It has been polished to within an inch of its life. It’s a funny thing about the whole polishing phase. Whether you are wide awake closely checking those words on the screen in front of you, or asleep in your bed, the story takes over completely.
For those of you who missed my earlier posts and therefore aren’t aware of Seventh, here is the teaser:
The Seventh Age
The Mayan clock stopped predicting events beyond 2012. Why did it not continue beyond that date?
Rebel archaeologist Nick Palmer experiences an almost unnoticed event at Stonehenge during the summer solstice celebration of 2011, which he attends along with hundreds of others, that worries him greatly. He is made aware through a blog, of a sinister organization known as the ‘Order’, that are seemingly bent on preventing his every move to discover the reason behind the worrying event.
During his voyage of discovery, Nick is tracked across the world by an enigmatic entity that has been trapped here on Earth for over twenty-five thousand years, awaiting the discovery of the event by what she refers to as a ‘surface-dweller’. Together with her and the few people he trusts implicitly, they set out to prevent the alarmingly inevitable catastrophic conclusion that will affect not only the Earth, but the whole Solar System’s very existence.
Jack’s latest science fiction novel is a tale told in the present day. Beside its topical theme concerning the dire events in 2012 predicted by the Mayan clock, it is also a story full of mystery and adventure in which the tortured love story of a human and an alien female gradually unfolds.
Watch out for it next month (April), at an Amazon Kindle Store near you.
