A The Earthside Trilogy Novel
Author Sherri Moorer’s newest science fiction novel is available on Amazon. It’s been 129 years since humanity discovered nanotechnology and two alien races in The Earthside Trilogy. Willow Lanier, the great-great granddaughter to the leader of one of the alien movements, has been banished from Earth for launching a cybertec virus in a political statement against the cybernetic aliens. She’s sentenced to Kuiper Station One along with a scientific contingency and nine other prisoners involved in her plot. The catch: their mission is a secret study on a spatial anomaly in the outer reaches of the solar system that appeared when the energy aliens arrived on Earth in 2098. Soon, the team discovers that alien intervention has changed everything not in just their solar system, but in all of reality.
Science has advanced and we can now colonize other planets. Do you (1) sign up to be a colonist OR (2) remain on Earth?
I’d remain on Earth, and let more adventurous souls fight over the spots to be a colonist. I’ve been the “Guinea pig” for enough new technology to know that discovering and dealing with the bugs in the system is a nightmare that I’d rather avoid! Every situation has unknown variables that are only known once you’re neck deep in them, and can’t get out. Nothing is certain, but I’d rather go in with more knowledge and the first “test runs” done to have a better idea of what kind of adventure lies ahead.
I wouldn’t want to be neck deep either!
You prefer to watch (1) a sunrise OR (2) a sunset.
A sunset, because I’m only a morning person through force of a “day job.” When left to my own choices, my requirement is to actually sleep past sunrise! Hey, I’m a writer. We’re all night owls! Mornings are painful, and I believe that getting up at 6 a.m. is bad for you. I always feel better when I sleep past sunrise – or at least, I’m in a better mood those days!
It’s funny how everyone’s body clock is different!
You have enough money to do anything. Will you (1) pamper yourself at a spa for a week OR (2) go on a cruise for a week?
That’s a tough one, but I think I’d pamper myself at the spa. I’ve been on a cruise and it was a wonderful experience, but I’d want to do something I haven’t done before. I’ve never been able to “treat” myself to the spa, so I think I’d want to take advantage of that opportunity.
Good reason to do so!
You can travel back in time. Will you go back (1) 10 years OR (2) 25 years.
I’d definitely go back 25 years. I was 19 years old then, a sophomore in college, and met my now-husband that year. It was a great year that I’d love to revisit. Ten years ago, however, not so much. Life was actually pretty difficult then. My job moved at the same time that my father-in-law was diagnosed with dementia. Let’s just say that I wouldn’t redo the 2010’s for any amount of money in the world because life kicked me around way too much. College, however, was a (mostly) good experience that I’d love to redo.
Great, especially if your current knowledge of your life goes with you!
Do you prefer to read (1) an e-book OR (2) a paperback?
An ebook, definitely. I fell in love with ebooks quickly because I read voraciously, and a Kindle is a reader’s dream! I love that it can store so many titles, and is easy to carry, read, and handle. Plus, it doesn’t waste paper. I’m such a big believer in ebooks that I only release my books in that format. The only book I have a paperback version is Blurry, and that’s because it’s through a publisher and they took care of all the options for the paperback – but I’ve only sold two or three paperback copies of it since it released in 2011. I will read paperbacks, but I always check to see if an ebook version is available first.
What an interesting response. Thanks for being interviewed, Sherri!
