Cover Reveal: The Terminarch Plot

terminarch plot cover revealHere it is, kids.  My fourth novel.  It’s the first novel in a series I’m calling The Five Rims.  It’s listed as a science fiction adventure novel, and that it is.  It has constant action, a near-cliffhanger at the end of every chapter, intrigue, weird aliens, rich alien culture, a snarky hero who may or may not have a love interest who is an alien, layers of villains and tons of nail-biter moments.

Oh, and it’s about the last human in existence.

Here’s the blurb:

The human race has dwindled to less than 100 souls, the dying remnant of a once tyrannical empire that conquered the Five Rim worlds only to be overthrown by their alien slaves. Over 100 years later, Guillermo March, born on an alien planet in a small human enclave, awakes from a coma after a botched drug sting takes his arm. As the fog of unconsciousness melts away he is told by his alien security force partner that he is the last human in existence. He is unable to mourn this news because he is immediately thrust into the mystery and intrigue surrounding the bombing that wiped out the remaining humans. The Terminarch Plot is a science fiction mystery novel rife with non-stop action, surprises at the end of each chapter, and a reluctant hero who becomes the sad legacy of the human race. Little does he know that grand schemes and machinations are at work, schemes that will bring about the end of the fragile hegemony formed by the native species of the Five Rim worlds.

I have a lot of people to thank, namely Chris Wren, a student artist who designed the cover.  He did an amazing job and deserves all the credit for it.  Also, I have some awesome beta-readers who really helped me get this thing in shape.  I think this may be my best work, and I can’t wait to get started on the second book and go back to Guillermo’s uncertain future.

It should be hitting Amazon in a few days in print and in Kindle edition.  I’ll be running some deals on it in the next few weeks.  I will also be at SoonerCon 24 where I’ll have a limited amount of copies for sale (hopefully).  I’ll be having an official book signing later in the month of June.

Let the fun begin.
