James R. Womackabout this book: The book is a short story detailing a gigantic flood when a huge ice dam is breached. There actually was not one but several such massive floods in North America toward the end of ice ages, especially the Pleistocene era. However, I meshed the catalyst for the ice age with a celestial event that began deep in the heart of our galaxy. A tale that took billions of years to unfold.
Since the ice dam is a major part of the story, the cover reflects this. A giant glacier holding back a vast lake. That was easy enough. The hardest task with this book was integrating the cosmic event that led to the particular ice age in the story.
Then making it scientifically plausible and accurate in describing its unfolding.
I researched the Missoula and other mega-floods to get an understanding of how they occurred, the results of these events, and the evidence to this day of their journey seaward. This sparked my imagination of what they must have looked like, sounded like and effect on the flora and fauna. I think readers who like science, hard science fiction, and descriptive narratives will enjoy this book. My desire is readers have the same sense of awe I had when realizing the unfettered power of water.
My hope get as lost in reading about the might and wonder of nature as i did writing about it. Be advised this book is 100% free on Smashwords as well as Amazon Kindle Unlimited and Prime.
