Here’s the first in a weekly series of author vlogs I am doing. This week I am talking about my work in progress – a short novel called Gran Pacifica.
Here’s a summary of what it’s about:
Concept: A poor farm boy (Heath) from the Reformed US travels to Gran Pacifica, the leading free city in a post-apocalyptic 2093, falls in love with its leader’s daughter (Promise) and must take sides in a surprise war between his home country and his beloved new city.
Premise: After the surprise invasion, Heath is pressed into service in the Reformed US military as a lieutenant by his father, Colonel Garrity, and becomes a top adviser to him. He watches as RUS forces destroy the people and places he adores in Gran Pacifica. When Promise begs him for help in finding her lost father and brother, Heath … [redacted to not spoil]
Dramatic Question: Will Heath choose to support his home nation even though they are in the wrong or will he honor his principles and his true, self-selected identity by fighting his home nation in defense of Gran Pacifica, Promise and his new friends?

P.S. I am really behind but I expect to start publishing Gran Pacifica chapters in mid-July. Thanks for being patient with me!
