Special Announcement

On Tuesdays I normally write posts that are tips for writers. But today I also have a special announcement.

Final Book of Christland series Published!

That is correct. For those of you who may be following my writing career, I have completed the series Christland. The first book of the series was Death Ship to the Stars, the story that takes place after WW III. Wrongfully blamed for the war (Christians were actually victims) a new world government began a crackdown on all religions, but Christians in particular. As part of this crackdown the persecution included death and led to the rounding up of believers and sending them into space to study their lives and expected fiery death. But the Christians revolted and took over the ship.

The second book was entitled Pauline A New Home. The space traveling Christians of Book 1 headed for Ross 128 and landed on Ross 128 b, naming it Pauling of the Ro Systems. Here they settled, set up a government patterned after the United States. Knowing that the forces of suppression would likely come after them, they began preparing themselves militarily. Meanwhile back on Earth a Christian underground was at work.

In Book 3 Task Force Hunter the world government sent out a new spaceship, the first ever space warship. It’s task was to recapture the Christians at all costs. A high ranking general was charged with this mission and a young admiral captained the ship. It took a while, but they were able to track the Christians to Ross 128 b. But they failed to consider the Christians ability to prepare for battle. Confident in their superiority the ship entered the Ro System. Onboard the ship and unknown to the General were secret Christians determined to stop him. And back on Earth the world government is in trouble and yes those pesky Christians are involved.

In book 4 Black Death, we find that Pauline and Earth are at peace, but an insane criminal has a plot to destroy all Christians. He decides that Pauline is the perfect spot to launch his deadly weapon known only as the Black Death. Before it is over the fledgling government must fight for its life!

Rise of I.C.E.S. is book 5. Captain Coburn, a minor criminal on Earth, decides to build a criminal network known as the Interstellar Criminal Endeavor Syndicate. Taking a page from Dr. Ink of Black Death, Coburn kidnaps 100 women to be used as both sex and work slaves. Taken mostly from Earth, and a few from Pauline, he puts his plan into action. But a young soldier is sent underground and she becomes one of the slaves. Her job is to find the location of I.C.E.S and enable the rescue of the women.

With book 6 Battle at Proxima Centauri we see that I.C.E.S. is still around but Earth and Pauline space forces are united and seeking them. Meanwhile the United States gets a new President and on Pauline an offshoot of I.C.E.S. is trying to establish a criminal empire there. How will it all end?

Battle at Proxima Centauri is now available. In fact, all my books are now a simple click away from their Amazon pages. Order now and you can get the book of your choice by December 20, 2019.

Insights: Pauline A New Home

Monday through Friday I deal with different subjects in this blog. I also post my blog to my Facebook page at RFrederickRiddlesWorld. Tuesday’s I try to focus on Insights. This week I am taking a look at Pauline A New Home.
Pauline A New Home is Book 2 of the Christland speculative fiction series. In this book the renamed ship, now Guardian One, arrives at the planet Ross 128 b. They promptly rename the Red Dwarf Star system “Ro” and they name the 5 planets after the Apostles of Christ. Ross 128 b becomes Pauline, named after Paul.
In this novel the forces that sent them as prisoners into space still oppress the world and continue their search for Christians, but on Pauline the now free Christians land on, explore, and claim the supercontinent Christland as their home. Soon they establish a new country, the United Christian States.
The Key to all this is the ability to travel in space.
In the fictional series man has mastered traveling within the Solar System and already has a community on Mars. And the newest technology is Warp Drive enabling travel through space.
As We Explore Space What Will We Find?
Fiction is often a foretaste of truth yet to be discovered. Just this past weekend the United States launched a rocket headed for our very own sun. It is built of state of the art technology enabling it to withstand extreme heat and not only get close to the sun but stay awhile.
It is called the Parker Solar Probe and it needed three huge rockets to escape Earth’s gravity. The ensuing thrust will take it to Venus in just six weeks! Then on September 28, it will begin a careful maneuver, called gravity assist, which will move it a little closer to the sun, where it will make a total of 24 orbits around the sun. On November 1, 2018 it will experience its first perihelion or close approach to the sun.
The orbit itself will not be oval, but rather petal-shaped, skimming over the sun closely before flying further out into space. At that point it will close its first orbit. During its orbits it will perform its scientific work while it is within a quarter of the distance between Earth and the sun.
The probe will also have the ability to hover, that is match the sun’s rotation speed and stay over a selected spot for a period of time, say ten days. This will provide them an in-depth base of knowledge.
So What Does It Mean?
For one thing it represents an important stride in space technology and ability. This will be a first. We will feel repercussions for years to come. Eventually it will lead, in my opinion, to technology that will enable humans to travel in space and even settle on planets less hospitable than Earth.
Unless God intervenes and stops us humanity will spread to the stars. Since the Rapture can happen at any time it is possible that God will stop our current search (He stopped the Tower of Babel), but it is also possible that He will allow the exploration to continue.
In the meantime, this is an exciting time from a scientific point of view. For the evolutionists it will be exciting yet disappointing (they’ll find no intelligent life), but for the rest of us it will be exciting just as exploring the Old West was exciting. It will represent new challenges plus new opportunities for faith and for enterprise.
Hold onto your hats, folks, the ride may be a bit bumpy!
