Intelligent Design by J.M Erickson, AIA Publishing’s first ebook , is now available for purchase. The paperback will be available in the middle of next month. This is the first book I’ve published for someone else and it feels really good to have helped an author make a good job of publication.
Sixty-five million years ago, Master Architect Janus institutes a plan to ensure the human species survival, and Junior Architect Hades attempts to convert a tidal-locked planet, Terra, into a viable planet should Janus fail. But when the Gemini planetoids inexplicably collide, all seems lost.
In 2008, the FBI whisk doctoral student Andrea Perez away before her experiment begins, and Lieutenant Colonel David Farrell watches classified information disappear from the Department of Defence’s data-bases. Years later, FEMA director of Readiness & Disaster Roberta Josephine Riesman begins to connect the dots only to find that the catastrophe that awaits the planet is just the beginning.
