Not many writers can claim to fulfill their life dream, but I just did last week when I published my first novel, part of a science fiction trilogy I've been writing called "Peers of Beinan"
The first book is called "Great Succession Crisis"
Young Princess Anlei always expected to be queen after her mother. But when the Great Council of Houses upholds an ancient law forbidding daughters of sovereign queens from assuming the throne, Princess Anlei finds herself in a personal crisis. Who she marries now will dictate the fate of her Gurun dynasty. Will politics -- or love -- win in this chess game of competing noble houses? And what of Lord Corann, her grandmother's protégé, who has secretly loved her for yen-ars towards whom she feels some attraction? The fate of a planet is at stake in "The Great Succession Crisis."
Book One of the “Peers of Beinan” political science fiction trilogy. Includes supplementary data files, plus the bonus short story “The First King” and chapter one of book two, “Ghosts from the Past.”
Right before the release, I set up a facebook page for it: https://www.facebook.com/PeersOfBeinan
And of course, I have a main site for the trilogy which includes all the supplementary data files included with the book online so you can consult them without flipping to the end of the book!
The trilogy has some pretty big messages embedded -- about pollution, religion,and of course, politics and sexual politics in particular. Much of the drama in book one is created by retention of a very sexist law. GSC explores the consequences of gender-based inequality -- with terrible repurcussions for the future.
It doesn't read like a piece of activist fiction, but if you are really interested in social change, I think you will find I subtly, without intrusion into the story, discuss important social issues.
Wiccans will like that the primary religion on Beinan is goddess-centric.
