Dear Librarians,

The origin of LINK was inspired by a NASA video clip that illustrates what happens to a star when it travels too close to a black hole. From that visual, I wanted to create a story that tiptoed around reality and, at the same time, challenged readers to question the confines of our universe. Though based on documented evidence, many of LINK's concepts went against everything scientists believed about black holes. Recently, the scientific community changed its thinking when it comes to this phenomenon, even sharing theories remarkably similar to those I created. What is fact and what's fiction? That's for you to decide.

Let me know what you think! Please write to for a chance to win one of five copies of LINK.

Happy Reading!

Summer Wier
