Hi Rafa,
The thing that started it all was a joke gift I received from my brother one Christmas of a deed to a lunar land parcel, complete with the property coordinates, a moon map, and lunar citizenship papers. I considered the possibility that the deed was legitimate, and imagined a scenario where it was passed down to future generations and became vitally important. I tried to imagine an extreme situation where the deed would really REALLY help my descendants. That is how the idea for Moon Deeds was born. :-)(less)

Hi Tucker, Haha, I guess you don't read much epic fantasy ;-).
Moon Deeds is really epic fantasy in science-fiction clothing, and the Star Children Saga series is one long story, broken up arbitrarily to bind it into books. I almost published Part One as Book One, but I tested it with a few people that way, and the response was much better when I ended it where I did. Btw, there's about 50 pages of front and back matter (TOC, Glossary, Illustrations), so the story itself is about 545 pages. The total word count is around 160K. Surely you own some Harry Potter, or the Eragon trilogy? George RR Martin? Brandon Sanderson? Anyway, if it's not for you, DNF is always an option. Fantasy fans relish long books; other people, not so much. Thanks for asking!!(less)

I'm sorry but unfortunately this book just wasn't for me. I really struggled to get into the world and the characters. After 100 pages I found myself completely skipping big blocks of text and ultimately decided to put it down around the half way " Read more of this review »
