Aptos, CA, June 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Norman Oro’s latest science fiction book, Away (Volume 2: Keepers of the Alliance), is now available in paperback (published through CreateSpace) and on the Kindle platform through Amazon.com. It follows the continuing adventures of quantum physicist Alberto Rys as he becomes embroiled in an interstellar conflict that was ancient long before the human race was even born.
Regarding Keepers of the Alliance, Norman Oro explained, “The story looks through the prism of science fiction at what it means to be human. Among other things, it examines the fundamental human desire to live, to survive and the sometimes conflicting need to do what’s right. These are age-old topics and I think they make for a good story.”
As for being an independent author, he added, “I don’t have access to focus groups or sophisticated marketing studies. I simply write for myself and hope my tastes aren’t completely out of touch with everyone else’s. Ultimately, what really matters is that those who end up buying a copy of Keepers of the Alliance like the book. I hope they get as much pleasure in reading it as I got in writing it.”
Away (Volume 2: Keepers of the Alliance) is now available in paperback ($16.99) (published through CreateSpace) and on Kindle ($6.99) through Amazon.com.
