The Lost Star Stories (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Wil Litang, first mate of the tramp freighter Lost Star, reluctantly accepts the job as acting captain for a voyage, replacing the dying Captain Miccall. Unknown to him, the Lost Star has a mysterious and dangerous past. A past that has caught up with it. Haunted by this deadly past and driven by economic necessity, Litang and the crew of the Lost Star must venture far from their comfortable orbit – out into the lawless asteroid drifts of the Nine Star Nebula.

The Bright Black Sea is not your typical space opera. While it has space battles, it's not military SF. And while it's a tale full of mystery and danger, star empires are not falling and the fate of the galaxy is not hanging in the balance. Rather, The Bright Black Sea is a lighthearted, character-focused adventure novel. Set in a small nebula of nine stars, hundreds of planets and vast lawless asteroid belts, it takes classic space opera motifs – space pirates, sentient robots, and rockets – and incorporates them into a rich, episodic adventure. For mystery, danger, and romance, join Captain Wil Litang and the crew of the Lost Star as they sail the black and bright space of the Nine Star Nebula in this first volume of the Lost Star Stories.

The adventures and misadventures of Wil Litang continue in volume two of the Lost Star Stories – The Lost Star's Sea, which takes as its model the planetary romance, the type of story made famous by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and fondly reinvents the classic story of a stranger stranded in a strange land for the 21st century. Also available from this ebook store.

Bad Space (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Their spaceship is falling apart. There's a substantial bounty on each one of their heads. Their captain is a stark, raving lunatic.

The crew of The Unconstant Lover, therefore, have plenty on their plate, attempting to both turn a decent profit and stay one step ahead of the forces of law and order.

Now add Captain Nemo – ace pilot, megalomaniac and complete moron – to the mix.

Hell-bent on becoming the most fearsome dread pirate the galaxy's ever seen, Nemo leads his motley crew with bluster and bravado through planetary blockades, space station shoot-outs and rowdy barroom brawls.

Before long, the galaxy at large starts to take notice. Before long, The Unconstant Lover and her crew are caught in the crossfire of a bidding war between three of the galaxy's most dangerous crimelords.

Attack on Phoenix (Forsaken Stars Saga Book 1)
From USA Today bestselling author Megg Jensen, combining the best elements of science fiction and fantasy

Two hundred years ago, an interplanetary expedition crashed on a deserted planet. Their ship was destroyed. Their technology lost.

They built a new society while they waited for rescue. It never came.

Instead they caught the attention of the dragzhi, an aggressive alien species, and found themselves in the midst of a war they were doomed to lose.

Torsten Vikker, a soldier who’d rather read than fight, is on a mission to recover an artifact rumored to have the power to defeat the dragzhi. Rell, a woman raised in a cult, will stop at nothing to keep him away from what she holds sacred.

Yet only together can they hope to save humanity from utter annihilation.

Star Nomad: Fallen Empire, Book 1
The Alliance has toppled the tyrannical empire. It should be a time for celebration, but not for fighter pilot Captain Alisa Marchenko. After barely surviving a crash in the final battle for freedom, she's stranded on a dustball of a planet, billions of miles from her young daughter. She has no money or resources, and there are no transports heading to Perun, her former home and the last imperial stronghold.

But she has a plan.

Steal a dilapidated and malfunctioning freighter from a junkyard full of lawless savages. Slightly suicidal, but she believes she can do it. Her plan, however, does not account for the elite cyborg soldier squatting in the freighter, intending to use it for his own purposes. As an imperial soldier, he has no love for Alliance pilots. In fact, he's quite fond of killing them.

Alisa has more problems than she can count, but she can't let cyborgs, savages, or ancient malfunctioning ships stand in her way. If she does, she’ll never see her daughter again.

Fans of Firefly and Star Wars should enjoy this fun, fast-paced new series from USA Today best-selling author, Lindsay Buroker.

ENLIGHTENMENT: THIS EARTH
Fourteen-year-old Sean has had a pretty intense time. In between dealing with the trials and tribulations of living as a young teenager and suffering through a particularly chaotic car crash, the teen discovers that his self-contained happy world is not the only one, there is an alternate Earth in the universe. Transported to a strange and exotic land, Sean is pulled into an exciting new world he has no idea how to navigate.

Although similar to his own reality in many ways, this alternate Earth is more advanced in both time and technology, yet its landscape, culture and people have more in common with the medieval stories he's read about on his own planet. With the land ruled by Kings and cornered off into different regions, Sean is forced to adapt to this new environment and harness its power in order to protect himself and his family from the dangers of this dangerous land. With the eyes of this alternate Earth set on space and a cosmic threat brewing, Sean is forced into action in order to stop the destruction of both his own world and this alternate reality he's found himself in.

Launching an epic fantasy saga, author Ken Kirkberry wraps a brilliant coming-of-age tale into an exhilarating sci-fi adventure in his new novel, Enlightenment. With the fate of the two worlds hanging in the balance, can Sean find the courage he needs to save not only his family, but the universe itself?
