This will be the first of several cross posted posts about books by other authors. They will all be space and / or travel related.

An interesting take on what can happen in the long term as the world is used up.

Description from Amazon:
The world was dying, so scientists worked to create a safe haven in the centre of the earth; hollowing it out for the future generations to live safely.
When the creatures created to watch over the people detected the failsafe program had activated, and that their hollow world was about to collapse, they took them to a sentient, biological spaceship, set with the coordinates to take them to a new world.
But with the aliens who helped the scientists in the past having come back to change the course of the ship, things soon spiral out of control.

How about a Cruise Through the Solar System?

I am taking my various travel stories and using them in a Science Fiction novel.

It is entered in the Geek and Sundry Hard Science Fiction contest on Inkshares. The contest ends at 11:00 p.m. PST on May 16th and I am making a big push to get into the top three.

So, can I ask two favors of you?
1. Please consider spending $5 for a copy.  If everyone purchased a copy I’ll make it and get the National Science Academy to help with checking my science is correct.  If the project is not completely funded they will automatically refund your money.
2. Refer my book to a friend, via Facebook, Twitter, email or any way that works for you.  I need all of the help to get so word about my book is out there in order to move up the ranks, and to get this work published. 
 I hope you will consider being part of this effort!

The site is selling the e-book for $10, but if you register and wait for the confirmation it will include $5 in credit (you need to claim the credit before purchasing) so it is at a discount.

Writing a Science Fiction book

The One: A Cruise Through the Solar System

Just to let you know I have been a bit distracted of late, as I have been starting work on a science fiction book.

I was talked into entering the Geek and Sundry Hard Science Fiction contest so you can see some of what I am doing as they want us to post chapters as we can to encourage the crowd funding idea behind the Inkshares site that is hosting the contest.

The year is 2152: Follow BJ Armstrong as he helps to unravel a murder plot,  foil the biggest heist in history, while on a cruise of our solar system along with a beauty pageant, and scientific symposium.

But can he get the girl?

If you would like to take a look (or pre-order) the link is: The One: A Cruise Through the Solar System 

If you would like to make a pre-order for my book you can get it at a discount. 

  • Got to the link and sign up for Inkshares. 
  • They will send you an email asking you to confirm your email address with a $5 credit for use in the system.
  • Accept the credit (I think it comes as an email after you confirm)
  • Then go and order the book using the link below for a 50% discount.
The link is: The One: A Cruise Through the Solar System 

Please share far and wide or comment, as I would love to actually get someone to help edit and market this once I am done.
