For Your Viewing Pleasure: Earth Girl

Cover Illustration (C) Himitsuhana
Cover Design by Nicole Sommer-Lecht

 
Just because she’s confined to the planet, doesn’t mean she can’t reach for the stars.

2788. Only the handicapped live on Earth. Eighteen-year-old Jarra is among the one in a thousand people born with an immune system that cannot survive on other planets. Sent to Earth at birth to save her life, she has been abandoned by her parents. She can’t travel to other worlds, but she can watch their vids, and she knows all the jokes they make. She’s an “ape,” a “throwback” . . . but this is one ape girl who won’t give in.
Jarra crafts a fake military background for herself and joins a class of norms who are on Earth for a year of practical history studies excavating the dangerous ruins of the old cities. She wants to see their faces when they find out they’ve been fooled into thinking an ape girl was a norm. She isn’t expecting to make friends with the enemy, to risk her life to save norms, or to fall in love.

Coming March 2013

HI John,
Himitsuhana does incredible work. My designer, Nicole, found her, and then looking through a portfolio I saw an image of a girl with the moon that was very similar to this. I knew it was what I wanted, but she did a new photo shoot for this piece. I"m very proud of how it came out.
