T.M. You can't edit a blank page. Even if it's complete garbage, keep writing. Never give up. Never surrender. :D

I loved writing Eshan because he harassed me. He crept into my dreams and annoyed me while I was taking showers. I would lose track of time thinking about plot ideas until I ran out of hot water.

My other favorite is Bax. He's just a big, alien oaf. Sort of a cross between Groot and Chewbacca. Every bumbling hero needs a steady sidekick. :D(less)

TM Toombs first novel is a great one. Alaska is overrun with people fleeing the overcrowded lower 48.

In exchange they are asking the earth federations to provide labor on their planet to harvest ores that will save their species, but material that will kill the aliens to mine.

I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

A man chooses to take a year long mission to a moon of Pluto, rather than serving a life sentence for a revenge killing of the man who killed his fiance.

It seems that the alien grays are trying to forge an alliance with earth in their war against other aliens, and bring gifts of technology.

Those other aliens arrive on the moon, and our protagonist winds up the ambassador for the aliens.

Okay. Seems like the author listened to Coast to Coast AM a little too o

I love discovering new authors who know how to tell an engaging story, and T.M. Toombs is one of the best I've read in a while. This book kept me captivated from beginning to end, and I'm so excited to know there are more installments on the way. If you enjoy reading about ordinary people struggling through impossible times, you'll love The Reluctant Emissary.

I thought that the story started off a bit slowly, but I soon found myself hooked to the point where I needed to find out what would happen next. Solid story for sure, although I did find some discrepancies in the story line and the character development. I also felt there were some areas that could have benefitted from additional description and development. That said, there was enough character and story development to draw you in and make you care about what happened to the characters. I will ...more
