Alien Invasion

g2 finalIn my brand new book, G-2, which is book 2 of The Guardian of Earth Series, the main topic is alien invasion. These particular aliens say they come in peace and want to do business with us Earthlings. Countries all over the planet roll out the red carpet to try to lure the aliens to purchase their wares.

My protagonist feels like Henny Penny running around squawking about the sky falling. He knows the truth, and these visitors are ruthless barbarians. Unless the world wakes up or starts listening to him, there will be dire consequences.

Another kind of invasion around here is Ga-Fla weekend. On the weekend these two neighboring state universities play each other, always in Jacksonville, there’s a mad crush of Atlanta people pouring into Georgia’s Golden Isles. Traffic slows to a snarl, and you can forget finding a quiet spot at the beach. Everyone is in serious party mode.

What feels like an alien invasion to you? House guests? Unwanted rodents? The lumpy stuff in the back of the fridge? Tourists or festivals in your hometown? One lucky commenter will win a copy of G-1, my futuristic thriller, in digital format.
