Writing Christian Sci-Fi: Book Two of the Terra Colony Project Series

Book one was so much fun, and so fulfilling to me. It was the book that launched an author! Now I'm working on book two of the Terra Colony Project series, and having as much fun with this one as I had with book one The Dreamers. 

I just finished chapter eight, and though it's been tough as my time is very limited and divided between my writing and other responsibilities. I have one day a week to write, Sunday, and sometimes I can grab time in the early mornings on weekdays. If I can hammer out two chapters a week, I should be able to get book two released by the first of October, which is my goal. 

Book two is called: The Flight of the EsCargo. A tongue in cheek reference to the fact that this last Colony ship in the Terra Colony Project's five, has the fewest colonists and more cargo than the first four, also that it is the last ship to leave Earth for Terra. 

In this part of the saga a college student from the highest social strata, a "Wealthie." Forms a group of troubled Wealthies, with a famous surgeon's daughter who's life is ruined when her father refuses to perform an elective abortion, and a couple of brilliant "Mids" (lower middle-class) students from his college to try the 'heist of the century'. They will perform a disappearing act, by stowing away on the EsCargo. 

They need to hack into both Frontier Space shipbuilders, and the TCP's databases, break into a protected warehouse, and figure out how to survive in crates in a cargo hold for long enough that sending them back will be impossible. Can this rag-tag group of college kids pull it off? They have to, as that's my story!
