Told as narrative poetry, Meniscus will take you on a new kind of science fiction adventure. The story is illustrated with my pencil drawings. In each book you will also find maps, a glossary of alien plants and animals, and an alien language dictionary.

… In the seventh book of the Meniscus series, Encounter with the Emenpod tells the story of the reconstruction of Themble Hill after a sink-hole devastates the community.

After a sink-hole forms beneath the Village of Themble Hill, the Humans must find a way to mourn the dead, help the injured and re-build the stricken community. When the Dock-winder child, Don’est, disappears, those who are able join in the search, leaving the task of re-building to the future. However, the Humans are not alone in their endeavors. Mysterious lights suggest the ancient Builders have returned. As the Humans watch, the Village is re-constructed, wall by wall. But it will take the Human heart to turn these marble houses into homes.

~

The story is partly adventure (Don’est the alien child has disappeared and must be found) and partly love story (Tagret and Rist love one-another, but Rist has taken a vow).

Delay on Book Release

My optimism in February set the date for the release of my next book in the Meniscus Series at March 31. But as the month of March unfolded, I realized I had much more work to do on Meniscus: Oral Traditions:

  • completion of the cover painting
  • completion of the pencil drawings to illustrate the story
  • final edit of the story
  • final design of the book
  • time for my beta readers to read and comment on the story

I have completed some of the work. But there is still some distance to go. The new publication date is much more realistic: May 15, 2019.

In that time I will be able to complete the above steps and feel confident I have done my best work.

Setting goals is a good idea, since it gives an author something to work towards. But sometimes it is easy to set unrealistic goals and very hard to meet them.

This will give you a look at some of the drawings I have done for Meniscus: Oral Traditions:
