The book, I AM, is a science fiction novel being written for a New Adult / Young Adult audience. The first draft is complete and I’m working on revisions. I’ve been playing around with different structures, voices, and tones, wanting to achieve just the right feel for the book. Naturally, I’ve also stuck as closely as is practical in a speculative fiction book with certain rules. While I will create speculative elements in a book, I usually try to make sure that the science parts are correct, and that there is a rationale for how the non-science parts work.
I AM explores events leading up to an extinction level event, caused by a massive comet from the Oort cloud, which originated from about 1 light year out. Of course the story has its own unique twists—after all cometary annihilation has been explored before. This book will be different.
I’ve posted a few items on the web page dedicated to this book, including a one-page excerpt, which I plan to update, adding the entire first chapter. To that end, I’ve asked the editor with whom I work to take a brief pass over the text.
