I thought this would be a good time to put up some thoughts about my new novel which has been four years in the making. I’ll start with the facts.
Title: Tribes of Eden
Premise: This book picks up after the point where “In the Arms of Elders” leaves off. It’s action is set in the future and it tells how the Eden Alternative builds an alliance between young and old that can challenge a tyrannical power.
Now for some opinions…
Why would I spend four years writing a novel?
I like writing fiction; it is more work and takes more time than writing non-fiction but it is also more rewarding. The story in this book just wanted to be told.
What good will a novel do for the cause of changing aging?
People who have been following my work know that I am a believer in the power of stories. We humans use stories to explore our world, what we want from our lives and how things work– or should work. The Tribes novel examines the role of Eden in the wider world. It places Eden in a broader context.
What are my goals for the novel?
Like any writer, I feel that the most important thing is to be read. I am eager to talk to readers about their ideas and I look forward to airing these conversations in person and on this blog over the coming year.
If you have a Nook or a Kindle or an Ipad, “Tribes of Eden” is out there waiting for you. We are working hard to build a community of readers and we welcome you into its fold.
For those of us who still prefer to get our books in the non-digital form, the paperback is on its way and we will keep you up to date with our progress toward a publication date.
