Attention fellow chess players! My new scifi novel, "The Shadow of Olympus", is now available online from AuthorHouse.com; as an e-book or a paperback. See what future generations on Mars may find (or what may find them!). Call (888) 280-7715 to order it directly from the publisher(and exclude the middleman!), or find it listed under Science Fiction and Fantasy by Barnes and Noble's website and under its title on Amazon.com.
If you need more convincing, go to Yahoo's home page, then go to the www.etc. box in its upper left corner and replace most of the nonsense with "EmmettSmithsNovels.com" and push "Enter." The result will astonish you as the world's coolest website appears! [You may also use Google's standard search routine now.] See also: "EmmettSmith's Blog for further details.
"It holds your interest!" Gene Beitel, computer technician, Mobile, AL.
"I felt like I was there!" Patti Fields, retired secy., Chapel Hill, NC.
"...a great story!...can't wait for the next book!" Kyle W., New York.
Book Store Orders: use ISBN 978-1-45679-665-5
This is Book One of"The Lowellsville Chronicles."
The volcano on the front cover is Olympus Mons, the highest mountain in the solar system (2.5x Everest!). A NASA photo of Phobos is on the back cover, along with some information about the author's background.
HALO! I'm happy for you that you have a novel published,but honnestly I don't have the time to read. I'm sure it's very interresting,though.fromTOM;
Congrats!! My wife publishes thru Author House as well, so I'll be ordering it directly from them. I look forward to reading it!!
Good first book. this guy could be the next Michael Chrichton.
Is this the Emmett Smith the football player?
No, this is Emmett M. Smith the chess player.
A small group of human colonists on Mars accidentally make a discovery that will change the course of human history. Meanwhile on Earth, a war begins that will endanger humanity's outposts on Mars and Luna. To see how these colonists attempt to cope with the new situations (and to learn if they are successful), read "The Shadow of Olympus." Available from Amazon.com and from Barnes and Noble's website.
Thank you for message and information.
I am not normally into Sci Fi. (I do like Dr Who though) Gothic horor is more my thing. But..for you!..I will be a convert and I will try to get your book. I have heard of you..I think. Thank you for bothering to look at my art.
Please see also "EmmettSmith's Blog" (for the back cover of the book). Author House's cover artist did a masterful job of blending my pictures and words in a well arranged form.
Thanks for alerting me to your new novel. I'll look into this.
This book is not at my library.
I am a huge sci-fi fantacy fan, but need things to calm down a little... I teach 6,7 and 8th grade reading, coach chess and go to school (married w/two kids)...
But will check it out.
Smooth sailing in all your games,
I'll look for it- I'm something of a fossil, myself. I like R.A. Lafferty, but nobody even remembrs him.:( Jack
maybe I buy this but I wish it was about another solar system because I don't think mars harbors life.
Hello thank's for your nice message on my home page.Iwatch sci Fiction moves but never had time to read one as am reading other novels.
yes-i love anything to do with the universe=sci fiction-i will read your book with great delight...
sounds good to me....i'll be checking this book out....nice one.
