Calypso
The world is not what it seems. Millions of lightyears away from her home planet, Kira is the sole survivor of the Earth colony on Calypso. Trapped on the exotic rain forest planet, Kira is surrounded by natives who want her dead and watched by the organization that sent her there. Without warning, Kira is thrown into a world of politics, betrayal, and desperation. She must relearn the ability to love and trust if she is ever going to survive.

Lol, no... Pluto is a tiny ice cube too far from the sun for much more than massive snowmen. :) As is Mars, and Venus we'd all crisp. :) There will, however, be colonies in the series on both Mars and Jupiter's moon Io, as well as the moon and a few other places. :)

pterybirds are dinasours right?(irl right?)
ill help you keep this book "scientific"

stevie.grace

pterodactyls are dinosaurs, yes. :) "ptero" in Greek means "wings," if I remember correctly. Pterybirds in Calypso are actually based on dinoflagellates, primarily one called "Ceratium." There's a picture here: http://dinosaurs.wikia.com/wiki/Dinoflagellate.

Oy... Darn shift key isn't working and I can't figure out how to edit... Pretend like all of those sentences start with capital letters. :D

Thank you! :) I have that dream, too! :) I'll be starting the querying process soon, so keep your fingers crossed! As to Vol. 2, "Green World" is the first chapter of the sequel book, and it's on here as well.

Ok.. Read that one to now.. Was a bit confused at the start, but then it all came together and honestly.. got me surprised there.. :D
I give it a thumbs up.. :))

I love that! :) And once Calypso is published, it'll all flow. Green World will be the background of what happened to Earth, so that the universe is more fleshed out.

Thank you so much for loving it. :) Unfortunately, I'm still in the editing process, and my brain has frozen over from the sheer magnitude of it... 350 pages is a lot to do!

Hopefully, it'll be done soon and I'll post it. Thanks!

Wow! what a fantastic story! Please, please add more to it or tell me if you have the whole book for sale somewhere. I want to finish reading this amazing story. You have a great talent. Couple of grammatical errors, but not enough to stop the eye from continuing through a sentence. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Thank you. :) Yes... I typed the first draft with a computer that had no "t" key, and lost a few more letters along the way. I'm currently in my second round of edits with it (though it's a bit stalled due to my own writer's/editor's block O.o ). Hopefully, it'll be done soon... Show more

You have no idea how much that means to me! :) And your crits are more than welcome. My computer has various keys not working, and lord knows spell-check has issues at times, so I'm glad someone was able to catch them. I'll go back through and try to polish it up. :)

You wrote this? This is incredible! It has so much to give. Your main character is so simple and real. You connect the reader to her on a sympathetic level and send them on her journey together. And it's such a great journey. The world is vivid and outlandish and the antagonist is mysterious and foreboding. It's like tumbling down the rabbit hole, everything I grab on to slips from my grip and I keep falling uncontrollably... Show more
