For a ticket to Earth, seventeen-year-old Anna-Maria “Ann” Solano is willing to jettison her birth planet, best friend, and the boy who loves her. Especially since all she’s required to do is escort Dace Keeling, a young naturalist, through the wilderness of the partially terraformed planet Eco. Ann‘s determination to escape the limitations of her small, frontier colony never falters, until Dace’s expeditions uncover three secrets. One offers riches, one shatters Ann’s perceptions of herself, and one reveals that the humans stranded on Eco are not its only inhabitants.
Ann’s willing to sacrifice friendship and love for a new life on Earth. But when an entire species is placed in jeopardy by her actions, she must make a choice – fulfill the dream that’s always sustained her, or save the planet she’s never considered home.
Synopsis & Giveaway!
Though the cover for Facsimile was revealed a while ago, I couldn’t participate in the reveal because it was during my blogging hiatus. (That, or I wasn’t getting the group’s emails yet.)
This is the largest image I have of just the cover, but I HIGHLY encourage you to go find an even bigger one. The reason? The sand. That sand is so darn high definition. I love stuff like that.
I love sci-fi in general, but you know what? I was supposed to do a review stop for this tour. It’s totally my fault, I let time get away from me…
And I thought I’d have the time to read it yesterday, then BAM. A meeting was happening at my apartment and I had to whirl-wind, hurricane clean everything. I had been up till three in the morning, when I finally remembered to take my medication so I could sleep. I ended up not waking up until 11.
By the time I got done cleaning, I had just enough time to change out of my ‘cleaning clothes’ before the meeting.
Pretty much as soon as I made myself presentable, my peeps arrived. Whew.
Then I was just beat. beat, exhausted. ugh. Barely had time to scramble this post together. So sorry guys. I swear one of these days I’m going to actually be able to get stuff done WAY MORE in advance. Running a site without scheduling for five years really took a toll on my advance-time thinking.
I still plan on R&R-ing Facsimile. It’s just not going to be tonight.
Don’t forget everyone else’s stops! You can view the tour schedule by clicking the banner below:
