My first book accepted by Pride Publishing, back in 2013 was To See the Sky, a short novel set in a dystopian future. The ending of the story was always one that had the possibility for a sequel, and now, finally, I can reveal that it will have one. To Change the Stars has been accepted by Pride Publishing and will be released in 2019.
To Change the Stars
A book written hundreds of years ago holds the key to the future of the last survivors of the human race.
Growing up in a massive underground cave network, Jessiah has never known any other world. When he discovers the existence of a time portal he enlists the help of his friends to expose the truth about the greedy scientists who control it.
Garrett has no head for science and struggles to earn the respect of both his peers and his father. With a taste for parties and whores, Garrett is the chosen target for Jessiah and his friends to use to gain access to the laboratory containing the time portal.
Impatient and impulsive, Jessiah decides to move things along at a faster pace by playing the role of a prostitute to get close to Garrett. He is prepared to sacrifice his virginity for their cause, but he doesn’t plan on falling for Garrett in the process.
With the future of the human race in the balance the stakes for humanity are high.
With his heart on the line, the risk Jessiah takes might be even higher.
Only together can Jessiah and Garrett change the stars of everyone in the caverns.
If you want to catch up with the first book, which does stand alone, then here it is.
In the distant future, where the devastation caused by war has driven the human race below the surface of the Earth, society is split in half. The rich scientists live in towers where they can monitor the surface and determine when the poisonous gases have cleared and the world is safe for humans once more. Meanwhile the majority of the human race lives in crowded labyrinthine caves, where life is harsh and short. Uneducated and with no real prospects for the future, a ‘lab rat’ is lucky to live to see thirty years of age. Employment options are minimal and few can escape the fate of choking to death on the dust of the caves.
When AJ, one of the poorest members of society, needs credits for medicine for his sister he is in a desperate situation. With no other options available he risks alienation from his family by selling himself to the highest bidder. Love is the last thing on his mind, but while Blake, his new owner, might not be Mr Right, Ryder, his servant, just might be. Unfortunately, their different backgrounds, prejudices, and AJ’s brutal owner seem destined to keep them apart but true love can be theirs for the taking if only they can find a way.
