Assignment Earth

This contemporary science fiction novel by Lynne Armstrong-Jones earns one of the top prizes in the Annual Reader Views Literary Awards program.

LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 11, 2024 / — Reader Views announces Assignment Earth by Lynne Armstrong-Jones as one of the overall grand prize winners in fiction. Armstrong-Jones’s novel takes home the silver award, an award honored with a cash prize and special marketing promotions.

“ASSIGNMENT: Earth” by Lynne Armstrong-Jones is a contemporary sci-fi novel that explores the life of Jared Collins, a depressed and unemployed man who discovers his unique powers after connecting with Andrea Perk, an alien on a mission to save Earth from an invasive alien race. Their relationship unveils Jared’s potential to aid in the cosmic battle, with themes of personal transformation, empowerment, and interstellar romance. Armstrong-Jones’s narrative skillfully blends societal issues with fantastical elements, creating a compelling story of love, struggle, and resilience, all against the backdrop of alien intrigue.

Paige Lovitt with Reader Views said of the story, “In ASSIGNMENT: Earth, Armstrong-Jones stepped into a more modern time where our current troubles are issues for the people in this story, as well as aliens, their technology, and special energetic powers. “Her creative imagination was well-utilized, seamlessly weaving an invisible alien attack on earth into events that appear to be happening in our mundane reality.”

Self-Publishing review notes, “Armstrong-Jones’ novel works most of all because the premise seems almost plausible …a layered and entertaining work of social science fiction.”

The Praries Book Review calls ASSIGNMENT: Earth “A must-read.

Armstrong-Jones says of the experience, “The original version of this story was written several years ago, inspired by Heinlein’s ‘Stranger in a Strange land’, and ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ by Walter Tevis. It is my hope that readers might enjoy sharing Jared’s sense of wonder as the story develops. I am truly thrilled and humbled by this recognition.”

ASSIGNMENT: Earth (ISBN: 978-1637840740, Hawes & Jenkins Publishing (2023) is available at online bookstores everywhere.
