I’ve finalised the back blurb for ASCENSION POINT. This will adorn the back cover of the paperback version, and double as the book description for the eBook on Amazon, Kobo, B&N, etc. So without further ado…
Titan. A genetically engineered warrior for whom going home means a death sentence…
Commonwealth. A powerful politician chasing a legend from her family’s past…
Seryn. A young girl seeking adventure and hiding more power than even she knows…
Collective. A synthetically augmented scientist whose singular nature makes him an exile…
Representatives from each of humanity’s four feuding factions, each offered the chance to see the legendary Book of Ascension—an ancient artefact that might hold the key to immortality. The four form an uneasy alliance before discovering they have been misled: Before they can see the Book, they must find a mythical deity, protect the galaxy from an ancient evil—and save humanity’s future.
I’ll have another post in a day or two, as I’m nearing the end of the editing process. EXCITING TIMES.

Very exciting! Sounds interesting! (BTW, are you in the states? I spell “artifact” differently, and didn’t know if yours was a typo or if it’s one of those words spelled differently in the UK or whatever. But I wanted to point it out in case it was a typo so you don’t have one on your books.)
Re: artefact vs. artifact – yeah, I’m from the UK, so it’s UK English throughout the book. That was a particularly fun part of the editing process, checking that everything was correctly UK 🙂
Haha. I remember the first UK book I read (a while ago). I thought it was riddled with typos until saw words like colour and favourite.
HILARIOUS. I can just imagine you sitting there reading and muttering to yourself. “This writer has a terrible grasp of English. Really should have hired a proofreader.” 🙂
Pretty much. And just recently I read a book where cars were referenced often. When character’s put things in their “boot,” and dusted the snow off their “bonnets” I was completely lost. Haha.
Wow. Your book sounds really interesting. Is it actually getting published? ‘Cause props to you man if it is. And even if it isn’t, I’m sure that someone will pick it up—and soon.
Of course it’s getting published – I’m doing it myself!
If you click the self-publishing tag down at the bottom of my blog, you can read the entire history of my decision process. I’m sure you’ve something better to do, though 🙂
