The Lost Children of Andromeda: Zosma by Jason Michael Primrose

ZOSMA IS A POWERFUL PRE-APOCALYPTIC SCIENCE FICTION STORY EXPLORING THEMES OF TRUTH, RESILIENCE, AND DIVERSITY

Zosma opens the series on Earth in 2052 A.D. as Allister Adams, a young superhuman, begins his search for the planet’s possible savior: Zosma Caster. Zosma is an intergalactic refugee and the vessel for an otherworldly energy source from the Andromeda Galaxy. The rogue organization C20 has been interested in Zosma’s power, but are its intentions entirely pure? Allister’s search for an alien becomes a search for truth as the walls, literally and figuratively, are closing in.

Zosma is the first in the series The Lost Children of Andromeda. Inspired by his personal journey of self-discovery, Jason Primrose has created a world in which even superhumans are challenged by the effects of greed, fear, and natural disasters. The apocalyptic tale explores the themes of reality vs. perception, human extinction and climate change, diversity of thought, and resilience.

Try to describe your book in one sentence.

Zosma, the first novel in the Lost Children of Andromeda series, explores the detrimental impact of humanity’s current choices thirty years in the future, and is told through the lens of a young superhuman named Allister Adams and an alien refugee named Zosma Caster.

When did you decide to become a writer?

I believe I was born a storyteller. I always used to make up stories, but there was this distinct moment in grade school when writing took hold of my spirit and wouldn’t let go. We used to have this cool thing where you could draw pictures on paper and type the stories up on a computer. They’d print and bind the books for you. I “published” about five, all of which I still have. (Thanks mom!) The most promising I guess was Dragon Wars, a 15-page illustrated short story. It grew up into the Lost Children universe.

Do you read reviews written about your book?

Yes, I do! I’m all about self-improvement and I love constructive criticism. I know what I set out to accomplish with the theme, the message, and the characters. When readers pick up on that, it’s an amazing feeling. When they don’t, I know that I have a lot more work to do.

Do you have any advice for unpublished authors?

Never give up. Try to have fun. Try not to take yourself or your work too seriously. Continue to grow and always be open to learning and the right kind of criticism. Try alternative methods, be daring, be brave. Celebrate every milestone, no matter how small. Be patient. Let fear bring you courage, not doubt.

What is it you love most about writing? What’s the hardest part of writing for you?

The thing I love most about writing is the process. Building worlds, crafting characters, unveiling universes, it’s all so much fun to me. I tend to really enjoy initial draft free writing, then I tend to loathe the middle of the revision process, then I fall in love again at the end as the finished product is coming to life. The hardest part is the revision process. I normally go scene by scene connecting the dots and linking plot threads. Continuity can be exhausting.

What was your favorite scene?

There’s a scene in the novel where Allister does something completely out of character. Seeing him in that moment, feeling so trapped and helpless that he’s forced to turn against his own values, was very humbling. It made me think about what we compromise for what we think we want and how that can permanently effect our life journey. He’ll never be the same. Neither will I!

How did you come up with your premise for your books?

I was inspired by my love of Dragons and astronomy to build a universe where Dragons were caught in an intergalactic war between two advanced civilizations in the Andromeda Galaxy. Dragon Wars was the original name of the series, and I wrote 8 books out of the 10 I’d planned to write. Leesa and Neight have been consistent characters throughout the 24-year development as have the alien race known as the Uragonians. I changed the title and many of the characters’ names when I decided to rewrite the series back in 2011.

What book is currently on your nightstand? Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi.

Absolutely loving it so far, and her personal story is amazing!

How important do you find the communication between you and your readers? Do you reply to their messages or read their reviews?

Community building is essential. I read reviews. I always reply to messages. And, forgive me for the terrible cliché but, “I’m an open book” when it comes to sharing in person. I love one on one or small group conversations. I want to hear about people’s challenges, their questions, and their aspirations. Otherwise, I’m a pretty private person. I don’t engage in social media quite as deeply as I should, so I’m working through that. It just feels like whenever I share I’m shouting through a bunch of noise, asking the world to pay attention to me bragging about my average life. (LOL)

Do you ever run into someone who says “You write WHAT?”

Yes, all the time. I spent so many years as a marketing professional in fields like Fashion and Technology, it’s become quite a surprise that I write anything, let alone science fiction/fantasy novels. People expect me to be a stylist or something like that.

How many more books can we expect in this series?

I have planned for 6 more novels in the Lost Children of Andromeda series. Another is in the works now!
