INHERIT THE STARS Debuts Today! (With Giveaway)

Author Laurie A. Green
Today marks the launch of INHERIT THE STARS, an award-winning Science Fiction Romance novel set 1,500 years in the future. This is the debut novel for author Laurie A. Green, though a novelette in the same series, FAREWELL ANDROMEDA, was released in January.

Under former title "P2PC" this novel:
  • Finaled in the 2011 RWA(C) Golden Heart Awards--Paranormal
  • Won the 2009 SouthWest Writers Competition--Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror division
  • Won the 2009 Utah RWA(C) Heart of the West Contest--Paranormal category
Because the novel weighs in at a whopping 113,000 words, it was divided into three parts, each with a distinct cover, to make it a more manageable read. Each section of the story is well over a hundred pages in length.




PART I: FLIGHT
To escape the merciless Ithian Alliance, Sair, a fugitive slave, makes a desperate deal with Drea Mennelsohn, captain of the prototype ship, Specter. But putting his life in the hands of a woman as mysterious as she is beguiling could turn out to be the biggest mistake of his life, especially when the price on his head begins to escalate.  Click to view INHERIT THE STARS PART I: FLIGHT

PART II: THE NETWORK
The daring captain seems to want far more from Sair than just payment for his passage. Though neither can deny the sizzling chemistry and growing bond between them, Sair must soon make an agonizing decision: maintain his own longed-for freedom or become a helpless pawn in an intergalactic coup against a ruthless superpower.  Available March 1st.

PART III: SACRIFICE
As the truth behind Sair’s place in the galaxy and Drea’s unique existence are revealed, it becomes clear that they are vital to the success of the coup. But their part in ending the Ithian Alliance may come at a terrible price for Sair: the loss of the remarkable woman he has fallen in love with-and their chance to inherit the stars.  Available March 1st.

INHERIT THE STARS is told entirely through the hero's POV, as highlighted in the earlier blog SFR with a Twist. The heat level is "Steamy" or mid-point between "Sweet" and "Erotica."

The story has ties--some obvious and some much more subtle--to FAREWELL ANDROMEDA

The novelette takes place some 200 years (called “calendars” in this universe) later and carries hints about what happened in the two centuries separating the stories.

INHERIT THE STARS will be released later in 2015 as a complete print novel through Amazon.

  1. I guess I should have read the entire post before I went and bought Part 1. :( I like cover #3 the best and I would like prize package #1.

  3. I'd love Prize Package #1 so I could read the whole story. I've read Farewell Andromeda and I loved it, so I'm looking forward to reading Inherit the Stars.

  4. Announcement of Winners!

    Liz S. was drawn as the official winner of Prize Package #1! Congrats, Liz.

    But since no one chose the other packages, I'm also going to award:

    A Prize Package #1 to Barbara E

    A "custom" Prize Package #1 to Diane9596 who already has Inherit the Stars, Part I: Flight. Diane, I'll substitute Farewell Andromeda in place of Part I.

    All I need is the email address where you want your e-book and gift certificates sent via Amazon. You can post here or email me at Lgreen2162 (at) aol (dot) com and put PRIZE PACKAGE in the subject line.

    Thanks to everyone for your comments.
