The Fact behind the Fiction of Mother’s Love


Did you know the Sun is constantly showering the Earth with geomagnetic waves of charged neutrons and electrons? It’s happening right now. Sometimes when those particles hit the Earth’s atmosphere, it creates an effect known as an aurora borealis or “Northern Lights” in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, the effect is called aurora australis.

In the novel Vessel, our future sun has entered a much more active phase and is bombarding the Earth with lots of geomagnetic waves, which creates a constant aurora of colors the survivors have named “Mother’s Love”. They believe the Sun is their Mother and the colors in the sky represent her love. Just imagine living in a world with a rainbow-colored sky. Auroras can be blue, green, pink, red, or yellow.

Sun worship is one of the oldest forms of religion on Earth. In Vessel, the modern technology we know has been destroyed by the Sun and religion has reverted back to the old ways of revering and fearing the Sun. A little spooky to think about.

~About Vessel~

The sun exploded on April 18, 2112 in a Class X solar storm the likes of which humankind had never seen.
They had exactly nineteen minutes.
Nineteen minutes until a geomagnetic wave washed over the Earth, frying every electrical device created by humans, blacking out entire continents, and every satellite in their sky.
Nineteen minutes to say goodbye to the world they knew, forever, and to prepare for a new Earth, a new Sun.

Generations after solar storms destroyed nearly all human technology on Earth, humans reverted to a middle ages-like existence, books are burned as heresy, and all knowledge of the remaining technology is kept hidden by a privileged few called the Reticents.
Alana, a disfigured slave girl, and Recks, a traveling minstrel and sometimes-thief, join forces to bring knowledge and books back to the human race. But when Alana is chosen against her will to be the Vessel, the living repository for all human knowledge, she must find the strength to be what the world needs even if it's the last thing she wants.
