Check it Out: GENeration eXtraTERrestrial (Book spotlight)

Hi everyone! Today's spotlight is going to be for the book GENeration eXtraTERrestrial, a book that's not only about alien abductions but is also interactive!

That's right, this series isn't just about aliens & abductions. There's also a treasure hunt factor involved. There's no better way to describe it than for me to quote the author himself:

GENeration eXtraTERrestrial is a contemporary epic in ten parts. ePisode 1 is free. It contains a hyperlink that will take you to the location on the web where the link to ePisode 2 is hidden – it may be on a character’s blog, a related site… definitely somewhere surprising.

Each following ePisode contains a similar hyperlink to the next hidden download, and so on – like an internet treasure hunt. Meanwhile, you will enjoy seeing what the GENeration eXtraTERrestrial characters are up to while you search. Perhaps you will even have a chance to interact with them – you’ll never know what you’ll discover until you check it out.

You can check out the first episode on the author's site (click on the above image to go there) & start in on all the fun! I have to admit, I'm not a big reader of sci-fi anymore (got burnt out on it during my Trekkie years) but the first chapter of this is just plain fun.

Curious? Here's the book's synopsis:

An avant-garde installation artist, a rural farmer, a suburban housewife, a spinster librarian, and a diva of stage and screen: What could this diverse group possibly have in common? Each of them claims alien abduction, but that’s not all. They also insist they are carrying alien babies.

Research scientist, Dr. Grace Brown, must officially examine these “nut cookies.” Her boss has blackmailed Grace into the task, hoping to sabotage her reputation with this fool’s errand and be rid of her. He soon learns it’s not smart to tangle with a super-achiever, just as Grace learns not to assume things are always as they appear.


As always, I want to remind everyone that there's still time to enter in the ebook giveaway for one of Jim Bernheimer's books! (Click here for more info.)
