Greetings Cool SCI-FI!
Beautiful, brilliant and Earth’s best hope for survival - Rocket Babe!
I would like to announce the launch of my husband’s new sci-fi novel, Rocket Babe- Dust Storm. The first of a series, RB-DS is now available from Amazon as a paperback or on Kindle.
From the jacket:
1982. After thousands of years of alien abductions and experimentation, mankind finally has the ability to fight back via a covert branch of the U.S. military, the Deep Space Strike Force. Aboard the DSSF Flagship U.S.S. PANDORA, an elite crew of 32 men and one woman has but one mission: eliminate the alien threat to Earth once and for all. But in doing so, much like the mythical Pandora, they discover that once the box has been opened the contents cannot be returned. This time a man opened the box but it will take a beautiful intelligent woman to deal with the horrors to come. Led by Verna Starr, call sign Rocket Babe, the crew of the Pandora will raise a planet wide dust storm on Mars that may spread throughout the solar system and rage for years to come.
As the supreme life form in the solar system, they had been visiting Earth with impunity for almost 1,000 years, all the while performing experiments on every form of life they encountered, mostly humans. And for all the time they had been observing human evolution and development they had done so without fear that one day man would dare challenge the very creatures that had tortured and used him as a lab rat. But now that day was dawning.
Occasionally visiting the air battles of World War II, their vehicles danced around the dogfights of mere humans, taunting the various militaries of Earth and allowing man to see flashes of their technological superiority. But man was advancing and would soon be going into space. The secret evil that had ruled the skies of this planet for so long would soon be directly challenged by man, but for humans to defeat them would require the bravest, strongest and most intelligent men and women mankind had to offer.
In the early 1960's the United States emerged as the nation that would lead the way to the moon and beyond and the fate of mankind would rest in the hands of the pilots, engineers, scientists and crewmen that would be sent into space to defend not just the U.S. but the planet.
While there were many brave men and women that would answer the call to duty, there was only one, Rocket Babe
Amazon has a Look Inside feature that allows you to read the first two chapters and you can also read, customer reviews.
Although RB-DS is a novel, many of the characters are based on real people and a few of them are even in the book using their real names, there is a reason for that, and we would like to invite everyone to visit our website to learn more and see bios for several of the key characters at: http://www.vernarockets.com/id42.html and find out what is really behind the book!
