It’s happening! My book is coming out on October 31, 2020. While 2020 hasn’t been the best of years, what with all the calamity going on, it has given me the time I needed to complete a number of projects. In March, I released a book called the Book of Lore. And now, I’m releasing my original scifi thriller: UNITY.
WHAT IS UNITY?
UNITY is a story of the dangers of isolationist ideals. Two star nations hold a tenous treaty established eons ago, marking them as independent and uniquely different in their behaviors. The nation of Unity became totally utilitarian, stripping all forms of individual freedoms and focusing only on the needs of the whole. Outworld turned their sights toward complete freedom and anarchy, leaving only the individual to govern themselves. While both nations had the interests of their citizens at heart, neither has been able to truly deliver a better existence. And now, frictions between the two nations are coming to a head.
The story follows Di Monet, a young and down on her luck aspiring Boss, meets a Unity refugee she thinks will make for an easy payday. But as Monet begins her song and dance, she quickly realizes that this Unity woman isn’t quite the fool she took her for; she calls herself Freya, and she captains a ship of her own, taking Monet and a few of her friends on an adventure across Outworld, in search of wealth, purpose, and freedom.
The book came to me in a dream, as I’ve mentioned in another of my blog posts on this site. When I dreamed it, it only went through the first act of the book; after committing to writing the story for NaNoWriMo in 2018, the last two acts came together as well. Now, after 2 years of working with editors, and getting a cover desgined by professional artists Carol Jane, I’m finally ready to release book one of what will become a series dedicated to exploring the vastness of space, the mind, and reality.
WHERE TO GET UNITY
The official release date is October 31 2020. It will be available on Amazon.com. Look for “A.C. Moore, UNITY,” And you’ll find it right away!
This book has been a major component of my life for the last 2 years. Writing it gave me purpose and direction, and helped contribute to overcoming depression, thoughts of suicide, and my overall self worth. Things haven’t always been easy for me; I have struggled with severe depression since I was 10 years old. Writing was one of my only escapes from the trauma of my youth, granting me a chance to enter into another world, one of my own design, and find stories that could give me respite from childhood difficulties that were common for me.
I hope you find UNITY a thrilling experience. Get your copy October 31st!
