ice in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Rock mining in space was all she knew. It was all she was good at doing. She was comfortable living alone as the captain of her mining ship the Sedona. Normally she managed with only infrequent trips to the planetoid Ceres for resupply.

She didn’t want to have to make extra trips back to base because of equipment failure. She didn’t want to become a mining tutor for a group of newcomers from Earth. And she certainly didn’t want to get entangled in corporate conspiracies, piracy, kidnapping, murder and worst of all…politics.

  1. Hey I really enjoyed your novel until you started into your rant on gun rights… Seriously? I can can live with the Far West frontier attitude towards guns but don’t try to ram the guns will set you free (like work will set you free over the doors of the German concentration camps) down your readers’ throats … As if having to prove your sane to own a fire arm is a bad idea!!! I sadly won’t be reading you again bud! Have a long bullet free life

    1. Marc,
      I’m sorry you feel that way. I would love to discuss creative writing and how taking a modern concept can be twisted to define a society. However, it appears you are even unwilling to discuss a concept, theory, or design of a future community if it conflicts with your preconceived notions.

  2. It’s interesting to see a sci-fi take on a “classic” fairy tale. Since the evil queen wasn’the defeated, just kicked to the curb, I was wondering if there were any plans for a sequel?

    1. I have considered a sequel, but I have to develop a valid story arc to make it worthwhile,. Maybe ‘borrow’ another fairytale?

Welcome and thanks. I will respond as soon as I can.
