Please welcome to my blog, Jennifer Anne Seidler, science fiction author of Dry Land.
When mankind toys with nature, nature fights back. Astronaut Ted "Shakespeare" Hardiston is setting off on the adventure of a lifetime -- for the rest of his life. He reluctantly leaves behind his wife, an android/human hybrid, to command the first base on the surface of the moon. Ted and the crew of Space Shuttle Liberty complete their mission, gifting the Moon with gravity and an atmosphere. In doing so, they cause mass destruction on the Earth below. By Ted's side during this ordeal is Codie-5, another hybrid and a genetic duplicate of Ted's wife. Ted, Codie, and the crew must work fast and make sacrifices to save the world -- and for Ted, to return to the love of his life.
I twisted my body around, easing back on the suit’s throttle, and watched, with a combination of fascination, awe, and abject terror as Liberty coasted in its lower orbit away from us.
