My First Story Is Finally Finished!!!
It’s been a work in progress, but I finally hit the publish button on my first story today, The Captain’s Inferno Episode One. Click here if you want to check it out on Amazon. It’s a dark, space opera story about a quantum hacker who takes a job with a transportation company to flee Earth after he is framed for a crime he did not commit.
Needless to say, the drunk, violent woman he meets is much different from the Captain who hired him, and to top it off she has also forgotten she hired him. [Read More]
My road along the publishing journey has been a long one. For those who know me, it’s been roughly seven years since I started writing my first novel, which interestingly enough is not the one I am publishing now. So spoiler alert, it’s coming soon. Check the back of The Captain or my website for details on becoming a beta reader.
It’s been a lot of work, but writing a book is not something anyone does alone, so special thanks to my wife and daughter for putting up with all my talk about imaginary worlds and storylines. And yes, I know Rose is less than two years old, but I’m thanking her too because she’s spent as much time as anyone else listening to me.
But more than that I want to thank all the amazing people in the indie publishing space for the invaluable information they gave out for free in many cases that have helped me immeasurably towards this moment.
