This holiday weekend, both Part 1 and 2 of "Our Time is Near" was released to Spike Network. In advance of this new science fiction book's debut, a novel way to inform potential science fiction readers of its content was to create a mini video clip that provides the reader with a basic plot. You can view them by following this link http://origin.www.spike.com/profile/LASector
In Part 1, the reader is introduced to Jake Randall, and recent transplant to Los Angeles and newly divorced. He thought this move would provide a fresh start in a new city and a chance to get his life in order. As the video clip unviels, a resistence fighter (31 years in the future) creates a wormhole and transports Jake into the future.
Part 2 begins the same way (introducing the main character), but the second half of the 90 second video clip provides a glimpse of what life is like under a one-world goverment. Jake becomes part of the underground resistence and helps fight for the thruth.
A third installment (Part 3) is under production at this moment and will be live action with actors verses the stills/animation that was used in the first two segments. Also, the production firm is considering having a booth at Comic Con in 2010 and several of the book characters will be available for photographs and autographs.
Interested parties who wish to be part of a potential Comic Con should post a response.
