The brand new sci-fi novel, HAVEN, from the talented Kate Roshon is now available from all your favorite retailers.
What can I expect?
Manned space missions are headed to the stars. Earth is in trouble and the best of humanity will settle on new planets. Kala Melina, one of the brightest and newest recruits at WASA, joins the mission to Haven with mixed feelings: she wants to help, but also longs for adventure. What Kala learns about herself and other colonists transforms her perspective and reveals a shocking truth about the human race.
Who is Kate Roshon?
Kate Roshon grew up in Philadelphia, where her parents still live in the house they have lived in for over fifty years. Kate now lives in Delaware with Walt, her husband of more than twenty years. Though she never had children, she has raised many furry kids. The current crew includes two dogs, Piglet and Eponine; two cats, Spot and Nimby; and six unnamed chickens. [We’ll try and get some pictures. Ed] To relax after her day job, she enjoys reading, writing (of course!), and her needlepoint. The best part of her day is the time spent with her family and furry friends.

Let me now what you think.
Ever wondered what happened when Flash Gordon got back to the office and had to fill in his expenses?
That thought started me on a long writing journey. The result is The Able Serial.
It’s is an ongoing sci-fi serial featuring the all-too-human Jim Able.
Jim works in outer space. Although he has returned to duty after a disastrous encounter on a previous assignment, he is determined to enjoy his work. His boss may be on his case, but he still manages to drink a little too much, to eat dubious food, and to smell the alien flora.
In the first episode, Jim is sent to Turcanis Major V to solve a mystery but with strict instructions not to start a war. Will he find the alien calling himself “Edward of Turcania”? Will he discover who has qualified for the First Contact fee? Will he accidentally foment a revolution?
With the help of a local female scientist, Madhar Nect, Jim investigates the religious minority of TMV’s main moon. He calls on all his patience, determination, and improvisation to finally secure an interview with a Regdenir. And then the trouble starts…
Episode One through Three are available.
Episode Four, A’NIR, is on its way.
In the meantime there is some really neat bonus materials to go along with the series.
This series is only available on Kindle.

Let us know what you think!
So, you’re thinking e-books have replaced print books… Here’s a book definitely read best in print; the look of every page is part of the story!
Technically, this is an epistolary novella–a story told through letters, notes, e-mails, and manuscript pages. And if you didn’t know it, the author is doing something rare, and, in sci-fi, even rarer.
The characters will stay with you in a different way, because they are always writing in their own voices. And you’ll remember the mysterious, magnificent, terrible place called Aleronde.
Physically, the book stands out from homogenized sci-fi stock because of its unusual format: 8.5×11 inches.
You’ll find this a memorable read and a tactile and visual experience, complete with coffee stains. You know…like reading used to be!
