Wordsmith– I also write books

In order for readers to immerse themselves, a book’s characters need to react to the setting.  In my futuristic Intervenus series, a cosmic impact shoved orbits of all planets outward by light years. Earth fell into a second Ice Age. When moon-sized asteroids crashed on Mars and Venus, water erupted and morphed their atmospheres into habitable. After Mars’ nuclear war, Venus became the next big hope. The atmosphere morphed into habitable at craters’ lower levels. A group of Europeans arrived two hundred years before, built canals, stocked them with fish, and created a pond with a tree.

    Hey Ruddy, The title is Betrayal at Crater’s edge. It will be part of the FLING box set to be released in mid June! Thanks for asking.

    Kathleen, I agree that settings are important. In your first book of the Intervenus series, A Brand New Address, you did a lot with Ice Age Earth, the shuttle voyage, and landing on Venus. I’m looking forward to reading Betrayal at Crater’s Edge. Having read the first book, I know the evil guy, Vito Savage, transported nerve gas on his shuttle. He wants to take over the existing population on Venus.

    Dash, thank you! You recall the hero Marchand sails an ice boat over the frozen tundra of Ice Age earth. On Venus he and Yardley get around in his sailing land rover. Wheels over the crater’s hard sand. There’s plenty of action as he needs to stop Vito Savage and protect the population.
