After investigating the scene of a seemingly routine crash of a commercial airliner, United States authorities discover a substance later determined to be of extraterrestrial origin. Authorities subsequently confirm that there are aliens on Earth, and their response to this intelligence ensues.

Jake, a gifted sixteen year old high school student defined in his community by a tragic event, inherits superhuman cognitive abilities due to an alien encounter. Jake embarks upon a journey using his new abilities to help mankind prepare for an eminent alien invasion.

The seemingly invincible and impenetrable aliens, who roam undetected among earthlings, are methodically plotting their invasion since their home planet is dying and has nearly been depleted of all resources required to sustain life.

It becomes a race against time as Jake tries to save the world.

Introspection: Transformation is the first installment in a trilogy.

About the Author

My name is Steven Hamburg, and I am a huge sci-fi enthusiast!

I first conceived the concept of the entire Introspection series nearly 30 years ago when I was a freshman in college. Over the years, I documented notes every time I had a new idea for Introspection: Transformation, the first book in the series. As time continued to pass, I became increasingly excited and motivated to finally dedicate myself towards writing the novel.

Beginning January 1st, 2016, I dedicated myself to finally writing Introspection: Transformation. My children's and my wife's ongoing encouragement were fundamental in enabling me to remain motivated throughout the writing process.

I focused my efforts on identifying story lines and attributes that would make Introspection: Transformation a unique, refreshing, exciting, and imaginative novel for all ages.

As part of my philanthropic mission, I will be donating all royalties from book sales to organizations that are dedicated to helping the environment, people, and animals. As of November 23rd, 2018, I have received nearly $3,000 in royalties. Additionally, after my giving later this year, I will have donated a total of approximately $50,000 from my philanthropic math tutoring company, What's Your Sine?, LLC. I will will continue my giving by donating royalties from book sales to organizations including, but not limited to:
Parkinson's Foundation,Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research,Can Do Multiple Sclerosis,Greenpeace Fund, andAnimal Welfare Society.
It is very important to note that all organizations I will donate my royalties to will be rated the highest possible rating of five stars by Charity Navigator. This five star rating corresponds to organizations that satisfy extensive criteria established by Charity Navigator. One of the most important criteria is that organizations contribute a high percentage of each dollar donated towards the causes the organizations represents versus towards the compensation of the organizations' personnel.
