This has been long in the making for me. I've had this story in my head for many years. I've cant count the many times I walked the aisles of Barnes and Noble looking for that one Sci Fi book that spoke to me. What I mean is, I was searching for that story that grabbed me and held my attention from the 1st chapter to the end of the book. See I LOVE science fiction! Every since my uncle took me to see Star Wars in 1977, I was hooked. It was like a light bulb went off in my head and my imagination exploded. Then I was exposed to the anime classic Star Blazers. A serialized cartoon tv show where characters died and the heros sometimes argued and fought amongst themselves. Needless to say I was blown away. Another big influence on me was Robotech (Macross). Heck I even borrow the crash landing of the SDF-1 scenario from Robotech, for my book Truths Destiny.
I wanted to go against the grain of most science fiction and have the lead be a black women. Truths Destiny tells the origin story of the Truth character. Truth like a lot of great hero characters is on a journey that is so much bigger than her current understanding of life. Another part of the book I hope I succeeded in was, the world building of Truths Destiny. The world of Truths Destiny is on the extreme side compared to our real world of today. I tried to include tech that could happen at some point. Things like biological nanomachines are real. What would happen if pop culture icons started to push advancements in implants? Even today one could realistically argue that people like Kim Kardashian has influenced people to get butt implants.LOL In the case of this book, rapper Terrorbyte wittingly or not is leading the charge to get CHIPPED.
While writing the book I listened to a constant loop of anime and movie soundtracks by the likes of John Williams, Han Zimmer and John Barry. Also 2pac, Public Enemy, and for reasons unknown the album GUY (Teddy Riley).
I could go on and on about the making but I really want to hear what readers think of the story. I'm open to answering any questions, long as they don't spoil what's coming in book 2 🙂
