Chicago-Based Romance Novel Series Heads to The Moon

CHICAGO, Ill. — Award-winning Chicagoland romance author Dania Voss’s Windy City Nights series is taking part in the Writers on the Moon project. Coordinated by speculative fiction author Dr. Susan Kaye Quinn, Voss is among one hundred and 25 authors participating in the lunar time capsule adventure.

Voss’s books will join Astrobotic’s Peregrine Mission 1, launching this fall and landing on Lacus Mortis on the moon. Astrobotic is a space logistics company and an official NASA partner. This will be the first American moon landing since Apollo 17 in 1972.

The project’s digital payload will be uploaded onto a SanDisk Extreme microSD card and will remain on the moon indefinitely. The hope is that the snapshot of indie fiction from around the world in 2021 will reveal the humanity of today, to the readers of tomorrow.

“I’m embarrassed to admit I nearly didn’t participate, but expressed my interest on the final day Susan was accepting applications for this amazing voyage,” Voss explains. “I’m thrilled to be included in this project with so many other talented authors and creatives.”

Voss chose her award-winning romance novel “Hannah’s Bliss” featuring International Italian model Luca Pantini on the cover, to be highlighted and listed on the mission’s manifest. The other books in the Windy City Nights series, also part of her payload include novels “On the Ropes,” “The Warrior’s Whisper,” and novella “Off the Hook.” The steamy romance series takes place in and around Chicago.
