"When the Temporal Witness Protection Agency sends a man to the future, he unwittingly becomes a key player in a robot plot to take over the galaxy."
Ah, summer. The time when you just want to grab a fun book for a quick beach read. There's nothing like sitting outdoors with a cool drink and a great story. The main character in my book, "The Predicates of Fate", starts off just like that (except a crossword puzzle is his diversion of choice) when he's suddenly confronted by some nasty aliens and a rift in time.
One of the joys of the written word is its ability to take you away to wonderful new worlds where imagination is limitless. My debut novel fits that mold: it has time travel, space ships, robot uprisings, distant worlds, martial arts and swordplay. And jokes. Don’t forget the jokes.
I wrote this book to be something that would have entertained me; it’s the kind of science fiction book I would have loved...had I not written it myself. Among the points going for it:
· Not very long
· Not very expensive (i.e., it’s cheap!)
· Fast-paced with lots of action
· Contains some big sci-fi ideas
As a life-long sci-fi fan, I wrote the book both as an entry into the genre I love but also as somewhat of a parody, purposefully using many of the tropes commonly seen in speculative fiction, but not in a mean way. I poke fun lovingly.
So if you find yourself at the beach this summer with a hole in your reading schedule, give “The Predicates of Fate” a shot. Just like our main character, you’ll be thrust into a future robot war. Figuratively, of course. I hope.
