Ceres in the News and also in Relic Rescue

Before the dwarf planet Ceres was in the news, it appeared in the first draft of Relic Rescue (working title), the second novel in the Crax War Chronicles.

About a year ago, I needed an appropriate location in the asteroid belt of our solar system, and Ceres fit the need.

The chapters that takes place near the dwarf planet have been written, but any new information discovered will be incorporated to keep my SF novel as scientifically accurate as possible.

    1. I work on it most every evening. About 70,000 words in to Relic Rescue. It's not going as fast as I'd hoped. I was shooting for a spring release with my publisher. Probably will be a summer release.

      Thanks for reading, Homer in Shetland and I'm glad you enjoyed the first novel!
