Here’s what I got so far, crew. The story is complete and this is my draft cover art along with the “blurb” that will go along with it. I suspect we’ll clean up the blurb as it gets closer but I wanted to give you all a sneak peak at what’s coming. I’m contemplating the podcast idea but I think this is too short for Podiobooks–it would barely fill the required five episodes unless I made them REALLY short episodes. Someone made the suggestion that I offer it to Tony C. Smith over at StarShipSofa and I think that might work out quite nicely if Tony wants it.
UPDATE: Wow! That was fast!! A Light In The Dark seems to be available on Kindle already. I messed up the blurb, and it won’t let me fix it yet, but apparently the book is for sale.
When Captain Bjorn Gunderson docks with what he thinks is routine cargo, he embarks on a very different voyage. On a milk run from Welliver to Breakall, a tiny rock punctures his ship, The Wanderer, and leaves the crew adrift twenty-thousand years from home. With food, water, and air running out, a desperate crewman takes a reckless gamble, risking his life in a daring bid to find safety. What he finds instead puts them all at risk.
Join Captain Gunderson and his crew on the final voyage of the Solar Clipper Wanderer in book one of Tales from the Deep Dark — A Light in the Dark.
