While writing Alien Threat, I had the thought of doing a trilogy. In this first book I made the Xyrptans look suspicious, not quite trustworthy. So, in the second books it turns out that the Xyrptans had their own ideas about the future of Earth. They launch their own invasion force towards earth. Simultaneously, The Praetorians, still festering from having been deported from Xyrpta, have their own plan for returning to their former home and have planned an invasion of their own of Xyrpta. So, we have a war with three planets participating from two solar systems that are 4 light years apart. The action should be sizzling.
The third book of the trilogy will be about the three planets, having settled their wars, finally working together to further explore space. Having discovered a new, inhabited planet 4 light years from earth but in the opposite direction from Xyrpta and Praetoria, Earth becomes the hub for this exploration of a planet markedly different from the three participating planets.
Any one have any thoughts about these future stories?
