Overview

Coming in July 2017

I'm scared. No, you're not. Yes, I am. Of what? What if I can't do it? What if you can?

When the call came, when the letter arrived, when the sunlight finally fell on your face-the struggle fell away, and you only remembered the beauty. It was like childbirth, but constantly, for your whole life. Every day we brought forth our future, every choice we made determined what raw materials would be in the hands of tomorrow. Some days took years and were times of transition where we thought we might die, and some years were full of euphoria or rushing release. Most years were slightly uncomfortable until we remembered how to breathe.

Everything didn't always work out. Sometimes things were just hard. Sometimes life hurt too much, and people did break. Sometimes, you had to wait for a long time for the sun to rise. While it's true the sun always rose, not everyone lived through the night, and the stars didn't give a damn.

The Burning Point will be available from By Common Consent Press on July 1, 2017.
