I have been busy proofreading and editing chapters 1-3. I will have chapter 4 up very soon.
Happy Weekend, Space Crew!
I’ve kept the airwaves quiet this week, but it wouldn’t be very Captainly of me not to connect again with a crew who’s gotten me this far.
Since the Nerdist contest closed I’ve done the following:
I see the rest of this funding campaign going a bit differently than it did during the Nerdist contest, primarily because I don’t have 700 friends in my crew...yet.
Of course, I am still counting on you. We have until May 5 to get to 547 more orders, and every single one of those will count. Please keep spreading the word. I’m working on getting new referral prize packages ready among other, err, things that I hope I can update you on in the next week.
Note that pre-orders no longer need to be unique. This means that if you’re someone who likes to share, feel free to pile them on. Also note that the ultimate package—the "Fleet Commander"—will get you three books at once, and could save you and your friends on shipping costs.
I’d also like to take this time to draw your attention to a couple other funding books.
Christopher Huang’s Murder at the Veteran’s Club just went live today! Chris is a writerly friend of mine and knows how to craft a mystery. If you like historical period pieces and love mystery even more, this is probably the book for you!
If you’d like to delve into something a little more on the horror side, check out JF Dubeau’s A God in the Shed. This is his second Inkshares success-to-be, and everything about this story has me excited to read it. It’s already passed the Quill goal, so it’s definitely coming out, but you can help push his orders off the tracker.
That’s it for today. When my campaign ideas start to become a real thing I’ll reveal all the secrets. Until then, please keep being part of my crew. May seems far away, but I assure you we’ll need all the time we can get to make this book boom.
Your Supremely-Secretive-Scheming-Space Captain,

Hey everyone! I apologize for not getting back to some of you as quickly as I had hoped. However, I did want to say Congrats to the winners of the Space Opera contest! Also, I am very thankful for all of your support in pulling me up to 7th place in a two week funding period! I had a blast!
