Cydonia tells the story of a troubled college dropout, a NASA technician, and a mysterious government program known as the Essex Corporation. When a radio signal is intercepted by NASA and traced to the surface of Mars, events are set in motion with potential to change the entire course of humanity. With themes ranging from drug use and family relationships to space exploration and the realities of the afterlife, Cydonia is a story that will stay with the reader for a long time to come.
Cydonia is my first full-scale novel. The initial idea manifested in the summer of 2015 while I was outlining another project entitled Harper's Vale. I immediately began brainstorming and expanding on the idea, and by November, the project was ready to begin. Seven months later, the first draft was completed. The first revision (the in-depth revision) was completed in February 2017, and the final draft was finished in June 2017. Cydonia's eBook release date is August 8th, 2017, and print copies are available August 15th.
