When she was already weakened by cancer. It’s the same when people say aliens destroyed Earth—pure bullshit. We destroyed Earth. Earth was in a system-wide failure by the time the aliens came. We used up our resources and didn’t have enough left to fight the invasion. “Ava!” When I raise my head but don’t see Lily, my heart lurches so hard it hurts. My sister is all I have I left.

  Playing around with my author photo. I am trying to use some fancy filters. What would look good for a sci-fi author? I think this one’s not too bad.

 I think I like the lettering lower on the cover, but don’t want to have the red dots over the hero’s image. I sooo wish I had some graphic design talent.
