UNDERGROUND and the Hollow Earth Theory...

 From Wikipedia/Hollow_Earth 

"The Hollow Earth hypothesis proposes that the planet Earth is either entirely hollow or otherwise contains a substantial interior space. 

The hypothesis has been shown to be wrong by observational evidence, as well as by the modern understanding of planet formation; the scientific community has dismissed the notion since at least the late 18th century. 

The concept of a hollow Earth still recurs in folklore and as the premise for subterranean fiction, a subgenre of adventure fiction. It is also featured in some present-day pseudoscientific and conspiracy theories."

So who wants to stick to fact when writing Fiction? This hypothesis is so compelling, it fascinated me enough to include it in the Chronicles of Caleath. 

Along with the idea of terra-forming an enclave to support life underground the idea of constant daylight and how an artificial sun might be powered intrigued the author in me. Caleath's journey provided an excuse to research the hypothesis and stretch the imagination. :) 

Underground: The Day of the Sun is the sixth book in the series The Chronicles of Caleath. 

Apart from the conspiracy theories, and a race against time, in this adventure Caleath's  education and patience is on trial as he becomes involved with the feisty Gabrielle and an angry young man, Simon.

Still in the editing stage, it is fun to revisit Caleath's journey, tweaking, editing, expanding the story as it is prepared for release.

Not fair to tease us like this, Rosalie! Get on with the editing and give us the book. You get to play and we can't even watch? So typical. You torture your readers just like you torture Caleath, and we love it. :-)
