Tour of the Universe - Vacation Posters of the Galaxy by Ed Hoornaert


Vacation Posters of the Galaxy
By Edward Hoornaert, http://eahoornaert.com

Did you know that NASA/JPL-Caltech has created travel posters for planets they've discovered? Honest, I'm not making this up. Here's one of their travel posters for a planet circling a red star:



PlanetQuest has confirmed 1804 planets outside our solar system, and another 3199 deep space objects that are candidates for planethood. That’s a total of 5003 exo-planets for you to visit!

In the spirit of NASA’s travel posters, I’ve created travel posters for my science fiction worlds. Which one would you like to visit?

Farflung Space Station
The setting for The Guardian Angel of Farflung Station, by Edward Hoornaert



Farflung Space Station marks the limits of Civ Space. It is the gateway to the frontier worlds inhabited by the Free Folk, who've been known to engage in space piracy from time to time.

The station is old and decrepit, but it’s Sandrina’s home. The mute waif knows so many of Farflung’s secrets that she’s the most powerful (and dangerous) person on the station, though nobody knows it yet.

They’re about to find out.

Planet Zee Shode
The setting for The Trilogy of Tompa Lee, by Edward Hoornaert



Zee Shode is one of the most Earthlike planets humans have yet discovered. Its four-foot-tall inhabitants look too cute and cuddly to be a threat.

But looks are deceiving. Sure, one Shon is cute. But three hundred of them, all wanting to kill you, are terrifying. And being herd creatures, Shons always travel in large packs.

Planet Jones
The setting for The Midas Rush, by Edward Hoornaert



On Planet Jones, the intelligent natives restrict humans to a dangerous rift valley subject to earthquakes, volcanoes, and strange mineral hot springs. Humans call the natives 'Sloths' because they never do anything.

When people discover a village full of Sloths turned into solid gold, it sets off an interplanetary gold rush like none the galaxy has ever seen. And the Sloths are finally going to do something.

Something BIG.

Earth in the near future
The setting for Alien Contact for Idiots, by Edward Hoornaert



When American aborigines from the future move their entire island nation—a duplicate of Vancouver Island—to our Earth, Ell Harmon makes the first alien contact. The take-charge Seattle biologist has yearned to find intelligent aliens, and her dream comes true when she meets Prince Tro Eaglesbrood.

Ell and Tro are quarantined together while the fearful world wonders whether the newcomers are friends or foes, neighbors or conquerors. Ell knows Tro is honorable and Kwadrans are peaceful … but how to convince the world?

I hope you found a vacation spot you'll love.  You know the best thing about these vacation destinations? All they cost is the price of a book!

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
