I think reading is probably one of the most enjoyable things a person can do. It offers a great means of escape from the harsh realities we face on a regular basis and opens to the mind to infinite possibilities. It forces us to ask “what if” when we’d never even considered an alternative before. No, reading is an amazing way to relax and let the worries of the world ebb away.
But if you’re like me, you often have a huge problem. What books do you read? What books are good? It’s going to be months before my favorite author releases his or her next big hit, so what do I do in the meantime? Well, that’s when it’s important to expand your horizons and test the deep waters of new authors. And for that reason, every Wednesday night I’ll be posting information on fantastic authors out there that you might never have heard of. These guys work their fingers to the bone to give us the best stories you can find. Many of them are making their way up through the ranks and soon will become household names, as recognizable as Grisham, King, Rowling, and Clancy. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to the first author in this series…one of my favorite all time authors, Jeremy Robinson.
Jeremy Robinson (www.jeremyrobinsononline.com) first came to my attention when I decided to read a book not typically within my usual genre. The book was called “Kronos” and featured a fast paced, adrenaline laced adventure of a retired SEAL who was hunting a monstrous sea creature that had taken his daughter. Once I was finished, I was hooked. Since then, Jeremy has had several other books published including: Antarktos Rising, Pulse (The first book in Chess Team series), and more recently, an exclusive eBook called BENEATH. The sequel to Pulse is schedule to be released on April 13, 2010, so you’ll have to wait a while.
But for now, why not check out his latest release…BENEATH. Here’s the official synopsis on Amazon:
“Three thousand years after a chunk of iron the size of Khufu’s pyramid collides with Europa, Jupiter’s sixth moon, an asteroid borne of the collision crashes into Earth’s Arctic ice shelf carrying extraterrestrial microbial life. The first man to come into contact with the microbes hears voices—and then dies.
After determining the meteorite originated from Europa, the Global Exploratory Corporation sends oceanographer and biologist, Kathy Connelly, and her crew to the moon aboard the Surveyor, an experimental spacecraft. They are charged with the task of melting through miles of ice to the hidden ocean beneath, where the search for alien microorganisms begins. But a startling discovery awaits them on the surface of Europa.
Vast fields of red, plant-like organisms fill the cracks crisscrossing the moon’s surface, surviving on nutrients welling up from the waters below. Intoxicated by thoughts of what might lie beneath, Connelly and her crew activate the Thermal Exploratory System and melt through the ice—toward a world that does not want to be found, toward a force that will do anything to make sure they never leave.
They search for life. They find death.”
Beneath is currently available only in eBook format through Amazon or Smashwords (www.smashwords.com/books/view/9357) in almost all formats. Plus, the audio version can be downloaded for free at www.podiobooks.com/title/beneath. Check this fantastic writer out! You won’t regret it.
