A Journey through Space

I finished the last book of Nathan Lowell's Trader's Tale series. It's available through www.podiobooks.com. I've listened to all of them downloaded from that site through iTunes. The stories are Quarter Share, Half Share, Full Share, Double Share, Captain's Share and Owner's Share. They take place in a era call the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper.

Nathan created a plausible world of worm holes, jump drives and solar sails where the brave, or desperate, travel through space to move cargo from one system to another. The story is not really about science or space travel, it is really about Ishmael Whong, his grown and experiences.

Did I mention it's free? All books through podiobooks.com are free to download. The recommended donation of $9.99 is just that, a recommendation, you don't have to pay it. As a side note, for books I have started and lost interest in, I have skipped the donation. But for Nathan's books, I felt it was well worth the ten bucks. He gets $7.50 of that and in comparison to the royalties from the sale of a single print book, that's pretty good.

I'm still working on my own book that I will submit through podiobooks.com, The Price of Friendship. I am on my 23rd episode and at about 43,000 words. I have recorded the 1st 18 episodes before and released them on various podcasts, but have re edited them and will record them new after I have completed the 1st draft of the complete novel. (10,000 words to go.)

Otherwise, check out what were doing at http://flyingislandpress.com and see what we have for you to put into your Kindle, Nook, or other eReader.

Thanks, Norval. It's been a fun - if sometimes strenuous - romp for the last four years and I'm really looking forward to telling some new stories set in the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper.

Hope you'll be along for the next voyage.
