As the years progress and I worry less and less about what other people think of me, I have found myself pushing up against my own personal boundaries of what is and isn’t acceptable to include in a novel. The result has been novels with a little more graphic content, whether that be violence, displays of the unfettered human condition, a creative use of foul language, or the occasional brush with sex (though, let’s be honest, your mom probably reads far worse than I will ever write in regards to the sexy time).
During that time I’ve written about the desperate story of an immortal man traveling through the depths of space, and an island populated by a twisted uncontacted tribe with a penchant for murder, and a story about a child abducted by…well, read the book (The Others). The point is, I’ve been writing some very serious stories.
By March of 2018, I was ready to lighten things up a bit. I’ve missed the sarcastic outlet of Jon Hudson (Project Nemesis) and wanted to get back to that. It was a few days later that I saw President Trump’s first mention of Space Force. It was like a gold plated muse had flown out of my computer screen and shot me, point blank. Two days later, I started writing, and spent the next two months making myself laugh. Hopefully, you’ll share my sense of humor. If not, you may never read one of my books again.
If you have concerns about this book being political propaganda, please see the Q@A below.
On to the book!
“But you said so much already,” you say. “How could you have anything else to write about this book?!”
I’ll be brief. I promise. I’d rather you be reading the book, so if you’re already in, just skip this crap and go right on to the buy links!
