The Alpha Ship One crew are famous for two things: making Earth heaps of money and doing it under the cover of deep space. The mercenary ship is commissioned to run missions on dangerous planets, to reap great rewards from unsuspecting alien races and to take minerals, precious metals, and invaluable resources for Earth's galactic expansion. They do the work that no other ship in Earth's fleet would dare consider. Why? Because if they get found out, then Earth abandons them; leaves them to rot in the middle of the universe, unaided and unheard of until the very end of time itself.
"More of a psychological thriller than a sci fi"
Meet Colt Unsworth. A man of few words, but many fears. Fears that keep him wide awake at night. These particular fears have followed him around since childhood. A traumatic incident when he was seven haunts him to this day. But he can't make out what the memory is. All he can see are shadows.
I'll tell you about my experiences in the self-publishing world and how it takes a whole lot more than catchy covers and keywords to get your book to the best sellers. It also takes more than one book. It might take ten. It took seven for me and even then I wasn't' making millions and still aren't. But am I happy with my progress? Damn right. Am I paying bills? Yes Sir! Am I a millionaire? No, I am not! Does it matter? No! If you want to earn money as a writer, you need to write and be thankful for every book you sell.
