About this project
This project is to fund cover design, editing, and marketing for the novel The Expedition - now complete in draft from.
The premise of The Casitian Universe Series is that five thousand years ago, thousands of humans from all over Earth are stolen by an alien species, and used as slave labor. They are finally freed two thousand years later, and are given their own planet, called Casiti. Because Casitians originally came from all over Earth, and interbred during the time they were enslaved, they are multi-racial, or, rather, non-racial - they are completely mixed. They evolved a society that is egalitarian, nonviolent and communitarian.
What if a Casitian man visited Earth in 1859, and stayed during some of the Civil War? What if he settled in Oregon, fell in love with an American widow, and traveled back with her and her children to the family home in Virginia that she had so desperately wanted to leave, and he posed as her slave during the trip? What if he met and helped a woman who was a slave along the way? What might that be like, and what might happen? That's what this novel is about.
