I am delighted to report that D. L. Jackson (who we know as Dawn) has just made another sale--her second in a little over a month! Her Science Fiction Romance/Erotica titled LAST FLIGHT OF THE ARK will be released as an e-book by Liquid Silver Books. I'll keep you updated on a release date. Dawn offered this preliminary blurb to whet our appetite.
Evolution never happened so fast.
Twelve hours outside of Terra II, Colonel Kaleb Titan, a molecular geneticist and commander of the Ark, faces a life or death choice that could change the fate of mankind.
The Genesis I, aka the Ark, has traveled for eight months with a hold full of wildlife and three crew members to keep her on course and operating. When a wolf bite and genetically-altering gamma radiation transform Colonel Titan, he notices his senses have been heightened and his libido has gone haywire. He can’t keep his hands off his crew and they don’t seem inclined to stop him.
When their sister ship, the Genesis II arrives early, Kaleb’s problems compound. If Earth Command learns of the infection, his ship will be quarantined and the crew will die in space. When the command crew of the Genesis II boards his ship, one whiff tells him they’re not who they appear to be. They might have flown the Genesis II to Terra II, but they’re not from earth and Kaleb suspects they want their planet and cargo.
When he discovers that they’ve kept the Genesis II’s crew of over two thousand alive, he begins to believe their reasons may be far more ominous than anyone could have imagined. However, he also discovers what’s holding them back. The hijackers seem to be allergic to canines.
Now, Captain Melissa Deluzio, the pilot, Lieutenant Jessica Stearns, a wildlife biologist, and Colonel Rivers are forced to employ biological warfare against their own people, but will it be enough to save them?
History is about to repeat and only one species will survive.
Dawn's first novel, SLIPPING THE PAST, will be available soon from Liquid Silver Books.
