Vampires, shifters, rock stars, ultimate fighters, young billionaires, military men, or business tycoons—they even have the best occupations!

Now if only they were real...
Was there ever a better man created?

Frankly my dear, I give a damn. 
Rhett Butler...he is so freaking hot.
Okay, so I'll quit drooling...

Author of Frontiers (Cybersp@ce Series)


Hi Elizabeth!

Below is a little about the FRONTIERS, along with some interesting plot elements from the book, and some corresponding facts, which I hope your readers will find interesting!

FRONTIERS: BOOK TWO IN THE  CYBERS@CE  SERIES
*A Dream to Unite Humanity...*
 Scientists discover the technology to successfully construct Earth's first interstellar spacecraft, code named Frontier. Hank Reynolds, a gifted and courageous test pilot for the United States Air Force, is assigned to test
 pilot humanity's first interstellar spacecraft on a historic flight to Alpha Centauri. Under the command of the fledgling Earth Space Alliance the spacecraft will carry human beings to the stars, and beyond.

 *A Plot to see it Fail*
 Someone doesn't want to see this happen and will stop at nothing to see it fail--including murder... When Frontier is sabotaged, it leaves Hank stranded and alone to die in the Alpha Centauri system. With their dreams
 crumbling around them, will they be able to discover who is behind the plot  to steal the alien technology, and to murder those closest to it?

Some Plot Elements & Facts Related to Frontiers:
v  In Frontiers, scientists build humanity's first spacecraft capable of interstellar flight, which a craft that can travel faster than the speed of light
o   Fact: While Einstein's theory of relativity suggested Faster than Light travel (FTL) is not possible, many theories have been put forth as to how we might get around this galactic speed limit. Just think warp drive or wormholes.
v  In Frontiers, the development of the interstellar spacecraft also results in the creation of an alternative energy source, helping to stave off a rapidly dwindling world supply of crude oil.
o   Fact: HSBC estimates the world will run out of crude oil with  40-50 years.
v    In Frontiers, several principal characters discuss how critical it is that the advanced technology be unveiled carefully and methodically to the world, or else the world could suffer catastrophic consequences.
o   Fact: The Drake Equation, as it has become known, which was first presented by Drake in 1961, is a probabilistic argument used to estimate the number of active, communicative extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy. Drake's equation takes into account that a number of such civilizations will end up destroying themselves with their own technology. 
v  In Frontiers, a public announcement confirming the existence of sentient alien life causes quite a stir among some segments of the world's population.
o   Fact: Studies like one by Paolo Musso, a member of the SETI Permanent Study Group of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and the Pontifical Academy of Sciences studies, and others, see no conflict between Christianity and the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence.



Thank you so much for allowing me to discuss Frontiers with your readers!

Thank you Jeff!!!

  6. I confess that I have fallen in love with characters in books. Several times. It's always so sad when you turn that last page...

    1. I know. I think Rhett is even more heart stealing because he walks away dejected at the end of the book. It's haunting. I need to go hug him!

  7. Nice pick for the blog hop, Elizabeth! And that's a fascinating post from Jeff. Have a great weekend!

  8. Book boyfriends are the best, cause their fake. LOL I have too many favorites to list. But Rhett is and always will be one of my all time favorites. He was dripping with swag before anyone knew what to call it!!!

  10. Yes, it took a strong man to tame Scarlett O'Hara, didn't it? Great choice!

    1. Scarlet definitely met her match in Rhett! To be honest, she really didn't deserve him. He needed a gal like...ME!

    2. Hey! Leave Rhett alone. He can make his own decisions :P

  11. Rhett Butler -- it's the mustache, definitely. :|)

    1. Yep, though I'm not usually a mustache kind of gal.

  13. I guess I fall in love with the hero in any book. Once I've finished the book, that's the end of the affair. Looks like a good space story. Good luck with it.

    1. Ever since Rhett and I book hooked up, I'm very particular about my heroes. Takes a lot to turn my head, or get into my head.

  14. Jeff, your book should drive sci-fi fans nuts. Congrats and I'm filled with suspense. Rhett really has your fire burning doesn't he Elizabeth? Hmmm?

  15. Mother Dragon would agree with you about Clark. Yet, her number one has always been Yul Bryner.

    1. Yul Bryner was pretty hot. Made the bald look cool.

  16. Congrats to Jeff.

    I've come to realise I don't read the kind of books which provide boyfriend material - I guess it'd have to be Mr Darcy for me. Or Tyler Durden... but, er, no...

    1. You can have Clark Kent. Comic book sexy men count too.

    Rhett is gorgeous.

  18. Proof that the way men and women experience books can often be very different...the "book boyfriend." That whole concept just eludes me. Lol.

    And Frontiers looks AMAZEBALLS!

    1. No book girlfriend for you? Not even one of those sexy gals in spandex from the comic universe?

  19. Yeah, I don't get the book boyfriend thing, either. As for the science fiction thing, that I get! Book looks pretty interesting.

    1. It seemed like a strange pairing, but it has worked well...something for the gals and for the guys!

  20. Ok, I totally get the book boyfriend thing and had a hard time scrolling past the book bf sexy abs, bloghop banner *fans self* Heck, I even get the book girlcrush thing, lol! Luckily, I'm a strong woman and managed to scroll down AND I'm glad I did. Frontiers sounds like a great sci-fi book! Congratulations Jeff!

  21. Twinny,

    If I ever plan a book tour, I will tell YOU it's a week LATER and then this way, you'll post the same day as the rest of us.

    #EasySeckmanSolve

    PS... Is it okay if I don't have a book boyfriend crush thing going on?

    Have a happy writing week and hey, let's do a Charlie's Scribes post again soon... how about June 11 and June 18?

    1. See, the thing is...you never want to give me more than one date. If it's a 12-18, my brain locks in on the flexibility. To get through my thick skull, you need to say, post on the 12th fool. I have a brain that happily gets caught in loop holes.

      June 11th and 18th sounds great!! (note to self...not 11-18.)

  22. Laughing at Koop above me. :)

    And holy yummy… agreed… and it's not just the name… Rhett… Oh Rhett… :)

    And go Jeff! His work looks fabulous and super smart. :)

  23. I don't have any book boyfriends, because a man can't tie me down. I'm an independent girl, and I do what I want.

    1. Whatever, whatever...I do what I want. (please hear that in the Cartman voice...works so much better)

  25. Hi Elizabeth,

    Finally, I get here and notice I weighed down with all the comments above my comment. I'm still desperately looking for a clone. Penny is a great help, but she needs her doggy naps.

    Oh no, blog hop alert! Arggghhhhh!!!! make them stop! Sorry, but I feel better. Phew! :)

    Yay to Melissa who is now officially everywhere. I click on a link to another link and there she is, again. I'm delighted for Melissa.

    Thank you, Jeff, for discussing "Frontiers" with all the adoring fans that visit Elizabeth's lovely site.

    Of course, I'm the perfect boyfriend in a book. Then again, one more time, arggghhhh!!! blog hops! LOL
