ISHARA

Title: Ishara (?)
Word Count: TBD
Genre: YA Sci-Fi

Ishara Ming won’t rest until the Ballena Blanca is destroyed. Three years after a fateful encounter with the MOBIS (mech-operated bio-integrated spacecraft) that left Ishara with a missing arm and as the sole survivor of the Essex, she vows to avenge the twenty-three lost lives.

With a rag tag crew consisting of a self-proclaimed mechanic, an overly religious pilot, a sharp-tongued harpooner, and the best tracker in the Halo System, Ishara figures the Ballena’s days are numbered. And then she meets Augustus, another whaler who also holds a grudge against the Ballena–and the truth to what happened on the night of the Essex’s sinking. A truth Ishara no longer remembers but desperately wants to.

As the crew and Augustus struggle to stay a step ahead of the Ballena’s unnerving intelligence, Ishara must decide if she’s willing to risk the death of another crew in order to make peace with herself.

WARPERS

Title: Warpers
Word Count: 100k
Genre: YA Sci-Fi

There are three rules to time traveling:

1. Do not double warp
2. Do not interact with Ghosts
3. Do not allow the past to catch up to the Proper Present

Unfortunately, 18-year-old Galileo Matox is about to break them all—by accident, of course.

Working for ScorpioCorp, Galileo’s job involves him warping into the past to collect evidence of high priority crimes to bring to court. A job which ScorpioCorp conveniently “forgot” to mention the occupational hazards of in its fine print: premature aging, risk of time-madness, and illegal implantation of a kill chip.

When the mission to identify Senatori Eisenhart’s assassin is sabotaged, Galileo finds himself not only in the wrong time period, but also in a parallel reality.

Fourteen: the number of days left until Galileo’s kill chip is triggered, scattering the atoms of his body across the time-space fabric.

Eighty: how many hours until Senatori Eisenhart is murdered.

One: a single, uneasy alliance Galileo forms with Avaline Eisenhart—daughter of the soon-to-be-dead senatori—that forces him to question the truth behind Senatori Eisenhart’s seemingly straightforward death and his oath as a warper to never interfere with the past.

Trapped in a reality in which he doesn’t belong, Galileo must solve the murder, outsmart his kill chip, and find a way to escape before the past merges with the present and unleashes chaos across the time-space fabric. Sometimes it’s the smallest change that causes the biggest ripple.

“Inception” meets “Minority Report” . . . in space.
