The Higher MIssion submitted again
My recent rejection of my science fiction novel The Higher Mission is now in the hands of Burst Books which is an imprint of Champagne Books. In the same day they acknowledged receipt of my submission package and assured me I would hear from them in two weeks. At that time I'll know if they want to see the entire manuscript or not. They have the first three chapters, a synopsis, bio and a promo plan. I've included the scene of Saturn as seen from Iapetus, far orbiting moon of Saturn. This painting by Chesley Bonestell is appropriate for the opening chapter of the novel as Cramer and Mona fly to Saturn's rings to mine the rings of the radioactive boulders dubbed "hot rocks."
