Release day: Quest for Earth
Today is the official release of Quest for Earth by SE Gilchrist (book 1, Search for Home) (ebook, Escape Publishing). Here’s the blurb:
With the survival of her crew at stake, an old enemy waiting in the wings, and a mighty chieftain declaring his love, can Sherise lead her people safely home?
Honouring a pledge made in the blood-soaked dirt of a prison planet, Sherise volunteers to lead the stolen people of Earth safely home. But when a collision plunges her ship off-course and they emerge three hundred years into Earth’s future, they have nine weeks to repair the ship or the path back to their own time will close forever. On an earth seething with predators and dangerous tribes, Sherise discovers love with the Lycanean chieftain, Maaka. But can she trust him, or is he only after her superior weapons? With the safety of her passengers and crew paramount, Sherise must choose her alliances with great care.
For an old enemy is hidden on the planet, and he wants all her people dead.
SE dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
I’m very excited to announce the first book in my next sci-fi/adventure romance series was released today with Escape Publishing. When I first plotted the outline of the Darkon Warriors series and, in particular, my last single title When Stars Collide, I wanted some of the original colonists to return home. So I wrapped up their journey with minor characters from the first series and gave them new challenges—a damaged space ship, a hostile, post-apocalyptic Earth and an enemy thirsting for vengeance. Quest for Earth is an 100k word book and in its first (very raw) draft finalled with an Honorary Mention in the unpublished manuscript contest, Paranormal Section of the East Texas Chapter 2012 Southern Heat contest (original name: ‘Beyond Aquarius’). If you enjoy action, adventure, suspense, high stakes in a dangerous world and a passionate love story between a sexy alpha male and a determined heroine, then Quest for Earth may be the book for you.
