The mere presence of the human race upon the whole spectrum of living consciousness was going to take up a lot of bandwidth out there among the stars. Plenty of others were using it themselves. For them, the arrival of an entire species coursing through the galaxy had the overall effect of elbowing one's way into a crowded bar and stepping on people's shoes along the way.

Synopsis: Elva and Chester are space aliens who look like humans but have been on Earth since the year 1100 with the goal of helping humanity develop more empathy and compassion. (The rest of the beings in the galaxy don’t want us flying around out there until we do.) The duo have no human habits to contend with, but they are extraordinarily responsive to chocolate and hold it in special regard. However, Elva and Chester find human behavior baffling, and continually see their plans twisted by human responses. Consequently, nearly everything wrong on this planet over the past thousand years–from the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Easter Island to The Black Plague–was caused by one of their historic debacles.

The Ballad of Elva & Chester is due out November 25, 2016 from WildBlue Press.
