Always believe in yourself, and remember it is important to maintain discipline and keep your focus.

In the new science fiction novel “The Intergalactic Riders: The Day It Began” (published by iUniverse) from author Kevin D. Barksdale, Altar and the Intergalactic Riders must race against time to save the galaxy from annihilation.

“The Intergalactic Riders” will be featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s largest trade fair for books. More than 7,000 exhibitors from over 100 countries and more than 200,000 visitors are expected at the fair which will take place over five days, Oct. 5-13, 2013.

Barksdale’s book is about a young guardian named Altar, who must get a message across an infinite space and time barrier before a diabolical space tyrant can unleash a terrifying evil with access to powers beyond his comprehension. The race has begun to save planet Zerian – the homeworld of the Intergalactic Riders – and the galaxy from total annihilation.

“We all are capable of reaching achievements and feats of incredible heights and being able to show some distinguishing qualities,” Barksdale says. “Always believe in yourself, and remember it is important to maintain discipline and keep your focus.”
