Q: What’s the genre?
Science fiction, specifically space opera within a quasi-military framework. Think Star Trek, only darker and further into the future.
Q: Content warnings?
Language. Violence. Suicidal ideation.
Q: Wait – is there no sex in this book?
Nope. Folks are busy with other stuff.
Q: So is THIS one YA?
Q: (Because people have actually asked me this:) Great cover! Who’s the black guy?
There are three reasons people ask about this:
- I’m white, and they expect me to write white characters.
- Greg has gray eyes. I had personal reasons for that choice, but if I had it to do over his eyes would be brown.
- Greg Foster is your basic WASP name, and I’d choose differently there as well.
Q: Seriously, though: Great cover.
It’s hands-down my favorite. I have a print of it framed on my wall. It’s the background for my cell phone. Chris McGrath is always good, but damn, I love this one.
