Ciao, amici! Life’s been busy, and it just got CRAZY. My publisher moved the release date of my new book from October to May 7. May 7! That’s less than a month away! I’ve got so much pre-release work to do. Starting with a cover release. So… ta-da!
It’s it stunning? I’m so excited about it.
Let me back up a step. First, you’ll notice it does NOT say “Staci Troilo” on the cover. We’ve talked about this before, here and there or in passing. I’m writing under a pen name (D. L. Cross) for this series. We can talk more about that later, though.
Second, you’ll note an alien ship on the cover. Aliens, as in sci-fi. It’s not a genre people associate with the name Staci Troilo, which is one of the reasons I’m writing under a pen name. If you’re interested in science fiction and aliens, this is a series you won’t want to miss. If you’re interested in odd ancient astronaut theories, this is a series you won’t want to miss. If you enjoy the interplay between my characters, this is a series you definitely won’t want to miss, as I have a bigger cast than ever.
Third, this is a series. (You know how I love to write series.) More importantly, this series is part of a bigger universe. My book, The Gate, is the first of five books in the Astral Conspiracy Series. (The first comes out in May, but you won’t need to wait long for the rest of them. They’re slated for rapid release in October!) If that has you excited, check this out. The Astral Conspiracy Series is just one of several series in Sterling and Stone’s Invasion Universe, and several of those books have already been released. You can easily immerse yourself in this world for months.
I hope you enjoyed the cover reveal. Until next time, I’ll leave you with the blurb:
He lost his job. He lost his girl. Now it’s all he can do not to lose his life.
Landon Thorne is a disgraced archaeologist, a laughing stock in his field because of his unconventional beliefs – he’s an ancient astronaut theorist. No one takes him seriously.
Until an alien armada targets Earth.
Now Landon’s in high demand – by the US government and someone far more sinister.
They race across two continents to the Gate of the Gods, the one place on Earth that might give humans an advantage over the aliens. But no one is prepared for what they’ll find.
And not everyone will make it out alive.
