I try and celebrate all twelve days of Christmas. There’s nothing quite like it. It breaks my heart to see Christmas trees thrown out on Boxing Day. Don’t people realize there is still more fun to be had?
I’m going to try and write as much as possible between the various parties, gathering, outings, and naps. There is a sequel to The Problem with Uncle Teddy’s Memoir that won’t finish itself!
Coming to a Kindle near YOU whichever holiday you celebrate!
The start of an adventure, the new eBook ABLE is the first episode of an open-ended serial. Follow the story of Jim Able as he encounters new civilizations, outmaneuvers his boss, and samples strange cuisines. Oh…and pays large sums of money to aliens.
Like all good sci-fi heroes, Jim Able works in outer space. Although he has returned to duty after a disastrous encounter on a previous assignment, he is determined to enjoy his work. His boss may be on his case, but he still manages to drink a little too much, to eat dubious food, and to smell the alien flora.
In the first episode, Jim is sent to Turcanis Major V to solve a mystery but with strict instructions not to start a war. Will he find the alien calling himself “Edward of Turcania”? Will he discover who has qualified for the First Contact fee? Will he accidentally foment a revolution?
With the help of a local female scientist, Madhar Nect, Jim investigates the religious minority of TMV’s main moon. He calls on all his patience, determination, and improvisation to finally secure an interview with a Regdenir.
And then the trouble starts…
